Does the Bryant Legacy series offer any eco-friendly refrigerant options?

Bryant's Legacy series of air conditioning and heat pump systems typically used R-410A, which is a hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerant. HFC refrigerants are known to have a high global warming potential (GWP) and contribute to climate change when released into the atmosphere.

However, there have been significant changes in the HVAC industry and refrigerant regulations aimed at reducing the environmental impact of HVAC systems. One notable change is the phaseout of certain high-GWP refrigerants like R-410A in favor of more eco-friendly options.

Many HVAC manufacturers, including Bryant, have been transitioning to refrigerants with lower GWPs in compliance with regulations such as the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol in the United States and similar regulations in other regions.

Bryant introduced the Evolution® system with the Puron® refrigerant, which is the brand name for R-410A. However, it's essential to check with a Bryant dealer or the official Bryant website for the most up-to-date information regarding their product offerings, including whether they have introduced newer Legacy series models that use more environmentally friendly refrigerants like R-32 or R-454B.

If you are specifically interested in eco-friendly refrigerant options, consider Bryant's higher-tier product lines or inquire about the refrigerants used in their latest models. Manufacturers in the HVAC industry have been increasingly focused on adopting low-GWP refrigerants to reduce their environmental impact and meet regulatory requirements.
