Bryant’s Evolution™ line includes its most high-end heat pumps. They’re designed to provide the ultimate performance and efficiency when heating and cooling. If a quality heat pump at a value price is your goal, start with the Evolution™ line.

Bryant Evolution™ heat pumps offer a variety of heating stage and fan speed options. They’re also compatible with Bryant’s Evolution™ Connex™ system, which allows smart control of your heat pump via Wi-Fi.

The Connex™ technology only manages communicating components from Bryant. If you’re only adding or replacing the heat pump to your system, your HVAC professional will need to hardwire the unit to be a non-communicating system.

Read on for our Bryant heat pump reviews.
