Most of the top HVAC manufacturers make a value line of air conditioners and the Bryant’s entry in that class is the Bryant Legacy Line Model 113A. But don’t mistake this for a cheap air conditioner – it isn’t, though it’s very affordable. It offers 14 SEER which gives it an Energy Star rating and it is backed by the same, solid 10-year warranty that Bryant’s top of the line models carry. That’s an impressive value! Soren in St. Paul, Minnesota thought so too and he recently had one installed. Here’s his HVAC prices post that includes the Bryant Legacy Line Model 113A 14 SEER central air conditioner price he paid.
“Our family has owned a house on one of the lakes in the Detroit Lakes area for many years. It’s pretty much sat vacant for a decade since our parents passed away. Now a couple of us kids are married and have children and so we decided to fix the place up and start using it again. I took on the task of getting the furnace going. I had it checked over thoroughly and though it’s 15 years old, it hasn’t been used a lot. I had it cleaned up and it seems to work fine. Besides, we’ll close up the house for most of the winter, so a furnace will only be essential if some of us head up there during hunting season or early in the spring for opening day of the fishing season.
I did decide to add a central air conditioner to the system, so priced affordable models from Bryant, Amana and Payne. They were all similarly priced so I chose the Bryant because the company owner/salesman/installer was the most helpful and knowledgeable. By far. He and his son installed the Bryant Legacy Line Model 113A central air conditioner in the middle of last July a week before we hosted a big family reunion at the house. It was hot and humid for Minnesota– but the house was cool and dry even with doors constantly opening and people in and out. Here’s the basics of the Bryant Legacy Line 113A:
Here’s the cost:
4 ton Bryant Legacy Line Model 113A central air conditioner with cased coil and refrigerant lines: $1,699.
Installation: $1,760. Total: $3,399.
The A/C does a good job cooling this 2,300 square foot 2-story brick house, so everyone is happy with the choice. No one’s happy with the color paint my sister chose for the family room, however, but that’s a different story altogether!”
