Since the 1950s, Rheem has been manufacturing heating and air conditioning systems, becoming a global brand known not only for HVAC but also for water heaters, pool heating equipment, and commercial refrigeration. Clearly, Rheem knows how to heat things up and cool them down! Rheem offers HVAC systems in a wide variety of models to suit the needs and budget of every homeowner.


Rheem’s Classic Series includes gas furnaces, heat pumps, and air conditioners that provide efficiency and comfort at a more affordable price. For instance, the Classic Series Single Stage RP14 heat pump operates at up to 14.5 SEER and 8.5 HSPF for solid, year-round efficiency. And it still comes with some special features like a composite base pan that dampens noise and resists corrosion.


Rheem also offers 15 SEER and 16 SEER heat pumps in the Classic Series for higher efficiency. Likewise, Classic Series gas furnaces come in a range of efficiencies, from 80% AFUE all the way up to a 95% AFUE model.


Rheem’s mid-range line is called Classic Plus. In the Classic Plus series, there’s only one model of heat pump but several models of gas furnaces with up to 96% AFUE ratings. The Classic Plus RP17 heat pump performs at up to 18.5 SEER, using an inverter-driven three-stage compressor for improved efficiency and increased comfort. The RP17 can also provide heat in outside temperatures as low as 7F, which can decrease the need for more expensive auxiliary heating.


Rheem’s Prestige Line offers the most advanced technology and features along with high efficiency. For example, the Rheem Prestige Series Modulating R98V gas furnace uses a variable speed ECM motor and modulating gas valves to achieve up to 98% AFUE. This furnace also comes with the Rheem Exclusive PlusOne Water Management System and blocked drain sensor. These features can help protect your home from water damage from overflowing condensation.


In conclusion, Rheem offers a wide array of products for heating and cooling that can keep you comfortable and save energy too. Our Comfort Consultants can help you determine what HVAC system will be the best fit for your home.
