Bryant Evolution Variable Speed Air Conditioner

Up to 19 SEER
56 dB
Variable Speed
This is essentially the Carrier 19VS, but with the Bryant label.

Does this model look familiar? It’s the Bryant version of the Carrier 19VS. Is is a cheap knock-off? No way. Bryant is owned by Carrier, and much of the equipment is identical besides exterior paint and label. The Bryant 189B Evolution air conditioner boasts a small footprint with a variable speed compressor! This means reduced noise (56dB), better humidity control, and increased efficiency due to lower-capacity operation.
