Jun 04, 2007, 01:00 ET from Bryant Heating & Cooling Systems

    INDIANAPOLIS, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Upholding its reputation for
 superior and consumer-friendly products, Bryant Heating & Cooling Systems,
 a leading provider of home comfort solutions for more than 100 years,
 recently received another prestigious Consumers Digest Best Buy award, this
 time for its Bryant Evolution(TM) System 180A air conditioner.
     The award is the third Consumers Digest Best Buy recognition Bryant has
 received within the past year in the premium category. Bryant's trio of
 award- winning heating and cooling products now includes the Evolution 180A
 air conditioner, the Evolution Plus 90i/Plus 95i or 95i gas furnace and the
 Evolution 288A heat pump.
     Consumers Digest Best Buys are selected based on a combination of
 performance, ease-of-use, features, durability, warranty coverage,
 efficiency, styling and maintenance and servicing requirements. The rating
 is awarded, on average, to fewer than three percent of the competing models
 in any given product category. The Premium Selection for the Bryant
 Evolution 180A air conditioner indicates that this unit is not only of
 superior quality, but also full featured and value priced.
     "We are thrilled that another one of our energy-efficient products has
 been recognized with this award," said Kevin Dudash, Bryant brand manager.
 "Bryant and its dedicated network of dealers continue to do Whatever It
 Takes(TM) to offer homeowners technologically advanced, yet easy-to-use
 products that demonstrate unmatched reliability, quality and value. These
 three Best Buys are a testament to the consumer-friendly design of our
 entire family of indoor comfort solutions."
     The Evolution 180A air conditioner provides quiet, luxurious comfort
 and years of environmentally sound, energy-efficient performance. It saves
 significant cooling costs with energy efficiency available up to 20 SEER,
 which directly benefits the consumer by reducing long-term energy costs.
 Puron(R) refrigerant by Bryant keeps homes cool without using
 ozone-depleting hydrochloroflorocarbons (HCFCs). The top-of-the-line unit
 also features a variable-speed outdoor condenser fan motor and an exclusive
 AeroQuiet System II(TM) for sound as low as 70 dBA, ensuring quiet
 operation inside and out.
     The 180A raises the bar for humidity control with Bryant's Perfect
 Humidity(R) function, which enhances home comfort with maximum humidity
 control over that of standard air conditioning systems.
     With Bryant's user-friendly Evolution Control, which is designed for
 use with the 180A model, homeowners can regulate temperature, humidity, air
 flow, ventilation, indoor air quality and zoning (when an optional zoning
 system is applied) through a single control. Other features include
 preventative maintenance reminders that pop up on the thermostat's LED
 screen, which make scheduling service calls convenient for the homeowner
 and dealer. A remote access option lets the homeowner control the system
 remotely, either via internet or telephone.
