27, 2017— Rheem® is charging into
2017 with a host of new energy efficient heating, cooling and water heating
products. The company will feature a number of them at AHR Expo 2017 (#C1336)
in its High Efficiency Air + Water Road Show, an expandable 53-foot
tractor-trailer that has interactive exhibits, state-of-the-art touch-screen
displays and a fully-connected classroom.
The introductions include:
Brand new to the company’s HVAC
product portfolio is a line of residential Rheem Mini-Split Systems. An
outgrowth of Rheem’s recent partnership with Fujitsu General (announced
September 2016), these single-zone (33 SEER/14.0 HSPF) and multi-zone (19.7
SEER/10.3 HSPF) heat pumps provide both heating and cooling for year-round
comfort. With a push of a button on a remote control, the systems switch from
heating to cooling (and vice versa) automatically. Rheem (and Ruud) residential
mini-split heat pumps are matched with wall mounted indoor air handlers capable
of delivering capacities ranging from 9,000 to 45,000 BTU/h, and up to five
The Rheem Prestige®
Series R97V Upflow EcoNet® Enabled
Gas Furnaces just received the ENERGY STAR Most Efficient for 2017
rating from the EPA. The furnaces feature a gas valve, which modulates from 40
to 100 percent capacity and a variable speed blower to provide ultimate
comfort, quiet operation and energy savings. This is the second consecutive
year these furnaces have received such recognition from the EPA.
The new Rheem Prestige Series Hybrid Electric Water Heater is
equipped with features that not only save energy, but offer convenience and
peace-of-mind, such as water leak detection and multiple operating modes.
Designed to reduce hot water energy use by up to 73 percent, the Prestige Hybrid
Electric Water Heater can provide homeowners with $4,000 in energy cost savings
over 10 years, and pay for itself in less than two.
Manufactured to improve hot water
performance, the new Rheem Classic® Series Tankless
Electric Water Heaters are super efficient, easy to install point-of-use
units. They utilize a self-modulating technology that activates only when water
is running, providing hot water faster without wasting energy – and performing
at a thermal energy efficiency rate close to 99 percent. The compact design
mounts directly to the wall (or under the sink) with common hardware and the
unit’s external control panel has a digital display so water temperature can be
adjusted in one-degree increments from 80 to 140 degrees. Ideal for retrofits,
renovations or simply to improve hot water performance in existing spaces.
The Rheem Prestige Series
Condensing Tankless Gas Water Heaters are the latest addition to Rheem’s
extensive line of innovative, contractor-friendly tankless water heating
solutions. These units not only provide continuous hot water but also save up
to 1,100 gallons of water per year, and an estimated $1,100 in lifetime energy
costs. Compatible with the Rheem EcoNet Smart Home System, these tankless gas
water heaters can be part of a smart home solution that reduces up to 60
percent of a home’s energy costs.
An industry leader in commercial
refrigeration, the Heat Transfer
Products Group (HTPGTM), part of the Rheem family of brands, is
introducing a series of new contractor-friendly air cooled condensers. The
Quantum Air Remote, the Next-GenII series, and the award-winning Russell®
Next-Gen MiniCon Multi-Refrigerant units are all engineered with enhanced
features that increase efficiency and durability, as well as improve
installation and service times. HTPG will be in the Rheem booth.
“Many signs are pointing toward growth
this year and we are ready to help our partners capitalize on that with a full
line of innovative, energy efficient solutions,” said Bill Alderson, director
of marketing, Rheem Manufacturing. “As the only company to manufacture a full
portfolio of heating, cooling, water heating, commercial refrigeration and
pool/spa heating products, we can offer integrated solutions for contractors
that most other manufacturers can’t. That presents real opportunities for
business development, training and support.”
