Setting Standards Since 1904

For more than a century, homeowners have associated Bryant heating products with the highest standards of indoor comfort. Through the commitment and dedication of our product development and manufacturing teams, we have consistently met every new challenge head-on and delivered the products to meet or exceed expectations. Today, as rising energy costs and increased environmental awareness influence consumer thinking, Bryant proudly offers a gas furnace with extra high-efficiency and superior comfort – the Bryant 987M with Perfect Heat Technology.

Extra Gas Efficiency

Our secondary heat exchanger extends heat transfer for higher efficiency use of heating fuel and is backed by a lifetime limited parts warranty.

Quiet, Nearly Continuous Comfort

The Deluxe ECM is a full-featured variable-speed blower motor which operates at the precise speed needed to deliver quiet, dependable heating and improved humidity control.

Efficiency and Comfort

Two-stage gas valve with two stages of heating operates up to 90% of the time on low-stage heating for smooth, efficient comfort. High-stage operation provides a boost in comfort during more extreme winter conditions.


The Bryant Perfect Light igniter is one of the most reliable and robust available so you can count on heating when you need it.

Intelligent Operation

Our patented furnace control board does the thinking for you so your family will always enjoy comfort and economy. Just set the compatible thermostat and let our “smart” electronics do the rest. This advanced control is the key to the Fan On Plus feature, Bryant’s adjustable constant fan function, as well as SmartEvap technology which provides improved moisture control when paired with an air conditioner or heat pump.

Economical, Low-Noise Operation

Our two-speed inducer motor operates on low or high speed as needed for the best efficiency and comfort. Operating on low speed a majority of the time, this motor helps ensure extra-high efficiency with extra-low noise operation.
