Bryant makes several series of air conditioners and their Preferred series models like the Bryant Preferred Series Model 127A central air conditioner are considered their mid-range options. This series offers Energy Star qualifying SEER along with prices that are more affordable than the top of the line Bryant Evolution line. In other words, very solid performance meets good value here.

I’ve got an insulated poll building with 200 show rabbits in it, plus my office, and I just installed a Bryant Preferred 127A air conditioner. Heat is much harder on rabbits than cold is, and after losing 35 last summer I decided to do something about it. I spend 10 hours a day some days out there doing bookkeeping for local businesses so I’ll enjoy the reprieve from the heat too.
I gathered central air conditioner prices and information about Trane, Goodman, Carrier and Bryant. I’ve had several excellent Bryant systems over the years and I couldn’t find anything in any of the others that would want me to change brands. Plus, I know the company owner well, and he’s a class act. My brother ran some duct work and the guys from Bryant installed the a/c unit along with the coil and air handler – no furnace since I’ve got a wood burning stove in the office and that’s really all that’s needed.
The installation went fine for the most part, though they had trouble hooking up the air handler to the duct work my brother had done – it wasn’t the right size or something so they had to fashion a special duct piece – if that’s the right word – to fit the two together. I’m not eager for it to get hot this summer, but I am looking forward to seeing how well this thing works! Here’s what the sales brochure says about the Bryant Preferred Series Model 127A:
Here’s what I paid for a 3 ton Bryant Preferred Series 127A:
Air conditioner system with air handler: $3,175
Installation: $1,600. Total: $4,875.
I’ll enjoy the cool air and think the bunnies will too!”
Keep your Bunnies Cool with Professional Installation
When a poorly installed air conditioner breaks down it is definitely not cool. Entrust the installation of your system to a qualified contractor who has the training, tools and know-how to install and adjust your system to achieve the peak of its performance and well as be problem-free for as long as possible. Quality installation always pays for itself in terms of optimized efficiency and durability.
