RKNL-A, RKPL-A (3-5 Ton)

The 3-5 ton Rheem single & 3 phase 13 SEER RKNL and 14 SEER RKPL Package Gas/Electric units with ClearControl™, feature earth-friendly R-410A refrigerant. This platform provides you with a full line of capacities that are each AHRI-certified. The design is certified by CSA International.

Additional Benefits

ClearControl™
Factory Installed ClearControl™, Direct Digital Control (DDC) and sensors which can connect to LonWorks™ or BACnet® BAS systems for remote monitoring and control.

The Scroll® Compressor
All of our residential/commercial package units – regardless of efficiency level –feature the Scroll® Compressor. The scroll compressor uses a more advanced technology than traditional reciprocating compressors.  Scroll compressors with internal line break overload and high pressure protection. Single stage compressor on all models. Molded compressor plugs. They have fewer moving parts, and they are quieter, more efficient, and longer lasting.

Durable Cabinet with Louvered Condenser Compartment
Our cabinets have a powder painted finish that protects them from the harshest weather extremes. And our louvered condenser compartment is the best in the industry for protecting the condenser coil against yard hazards and weather extremes. There is a
one-piece top cover and one piece base pan with drawn supply and return opening for superior water management. Externally mounted refrigerant gauge ports for easy service diagnostics.

Motor/Fan Motor Mount
Our motor mount helps protect the fan motor from the elements for longer life. Its design dependability helps reduce vibration and noise. Direct drive or high performance belt drive motor with variable pitch pulleys and quick adjust belt system. Permanently lubricated evaporator, condenser and gas heat inducer motors. Condenser motors are internally protected, totally enclosed with shaft down design.

Furnace Compartment
Control box operational controls are “up front” for quick access and service diagnostics.  The draft inducer motor is specially designed to quietly provide combustion air while simultaneously venting outdoors the combustion products from the furnace heat exchanger. In addition to the draft inducer motor, the in-shot gas burners, gas valve and manifold efficiently regulate the flow of gas for combustion.  These new gas/electric units also feature direct-spark ignition and remote flame sensors for added dependability and efficiency

Matched Blower/Evaporator Coil Unit
The blower is responsible for the flow of air into your ductwork. It has been designed to match the evaporator coil and other system components for maximum efficiency and quiet operation. Single slab, single pass designed evaporator coil facilitate easy cleaning for maintained high efficiencies.

Tubular Heat Exchanger
Our new package gas electric units feature a tubular heat exchanger design. Tubular heat exchangers are more efficient and durable than older-style clamshell heat exchangers. The factory standard heat exchanger is backed by a ten year limited warranty.
