How to Compare a Goodman Gas Furnace with a Bryant

Save

Both Goodman and Bryant are companies that offer consumers heating and cooling systems. Both companies also boast of the energy and cost-saving efficiency of their appliances, including their gas furnaces. However, you can't take each company's claim at face value. In order to compare a Goodman gas furnace with a Bryant gas furnace, you must dig a little deeper and research more about each product before making a decision about which gas furnace is best for your home.

  • Look at the price of each furnace. No matter which company you choose, a gas furnace is always going to be a large investment, but either Goodman or Bryant may offer a better deal for the gas furnace you're considering.

  • Pay attention to the size of the gas furnaces you're comparing. The furnace needs to be able to fit in the space you have, and it also needs to be large enough to heat your home. When in doubt, a little too large is better than not large enough, according to the Consumer Reports website. Consumer Reports also states that the best way to determine which size you need is to hire a contractor to calculate your home's heating needs according to industry standards.

  • Read through the product details for the Goodman and Bryant gas furnaces. Compare the energy efficiency rating, noise level and durability for each gas furnace.

  • Check out each company's gas furnace in person if possible. Both the Goodman and the Bryant websites have a "Find a Dealer" search box on all pages. Once you find a dealer, go in to check out the model in person to see how user-friendly it is. You can also take this opportunity to ask the dealer any other questions you might have and find out the cost of installation.

  • Find out what special features are included with the Goodman and the Bryant furnace. Some features might be extremely important to you, such as automatic dirty filter detection, while others might seem a waste of money, such as an electronic control board with self-diagnostics. Other available features include variable speed blowers and heat output, air filtration, an ignition system and zoned heating technology.
