Rheem offers more than 20 furnaces that run on either natural gas or propane, including the Rheem classic plus series ultra-low NOx 80% AFUE upflow gas furnace, which is the industry’s lowest-emission furnace. This 34-inch, single-stage furnace is eligible for a $500 rebate.
Rheem’s gas models feature the EcoNet® Smart Monitoring System, which uses sensor technology to regulate home heating, ultimately operating more efficiently and reducing heating expenses.
Rheem’s natural gas and propane furnaces feature a PlusOne™ Ignition System, which is nine times more reliable than most hot surface igniters. Each furnace converts a minimum of 80% of converted fuel into heat and uses a diagnostics system that simplifies troubleshooting.
Rheem offers two models of oil furnaces, giving users features such as an 86% efficiency rate in converting oil to heat and a series of motors that ensure optimum operating efficiency.
Rheem Heat Pumps
Rheem heat pumps give families many options to manage their home’s internal temperature. The company’s six models offer features such as EcoNet functionality® while also making use of unique design functions, such as single, two-stage, and three-stage operating systems.
Rheem’s heat pump line features five models from the classic series as well as one from the prestige series. With the exception of the Classic Plus Series Three-Stage RP17 model, all units employ a scroll compressor mechanism that enables them to more efficiently compress air. The Classic Three-Stage and Prestige Variable Speed models offer rebates of up to $750.

Rheem’s tankless water heaters help users maximize hot water, minimize cold water bursts, and save energy. Hot water is available on demand thanks to a built-in recirculation pump kit added on to a Rheem tankless water heater.

Rheem Packaged Systems
Rheem’s packaged systems keep users cool when they need it most. Its line of 18 innovative options varies in unit size and function. Some of the standard functions in Rheem systems, such as two-stage operating systems and scroll compressors, can be found in many other Rheem units, including heat pumps.
Other features, such as optional VFD and HumiDry Technology available on the Classic Plus Series RACDZS and Prestige Series RACDZT models, deliver enhanced humidity control without affecting internal temperature. These and other functions ensure maximum comfort for Rheem users at an affordable price.
