Bryant® Evolution® Variable-Speed Heat Pump

Bryant® Evolution® Variable-Speed Heat Pump
Models: 288BNVSmall but powerful, this unique heat pump uses inverter technology and a rotary compressor to deliver variable-speed control. That translates to highly efficient, low-stage heating and cooling operation down to 25% capacity for ultra quiet, even temperature comfort. What’s more, it can provide exceptional summer dehumidification.
