The 2-4 ton Rheem 14 SEER RQPW Package Dual Fuel units feature earth-friendly R-410A refrigerant. A Package Dual Fuel Unit is a Package Heat Pump with a gas furnace installed in the heat section instead of electric heat that is in a standard Package Heat Pump. Generally, heating is satisfied by operation of the Heat Pump above a outdoor temperature balance point and below the outdoor temperature balance point the gas furnace is utilized to satisfy the heat requirement. This hybrid package system allows for both comfort and energy savings. It is more cost effective above the balance point to run electricity and the heat pump provides adequate supply air temperature at these outdoor temperatures to assure comfort. Below the balance point it is more economical and provides better comfort to utilize gas heat. All models feature Copeland® Scroll® compressors for This platform provides you with a full line of capacities that are each AHRI-certified. The design is certified by CSA International.
The Scroll® Compressor
All of our residential package units – regardless of efficiency level –feature the Scroll® Compressor. The scroll compressor uses a more advanced technology than traditional reciprocating compressors. The compressor is hermetically sealed and incorporates internal high temperature motor overload protection and
durable insulation on the motor windings. It is externally mounted on rubber grommets to reduce vibration and noise. 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 with a deep flange to help keep water out of
the unit. Access panels have “weep holes” and channels to further help manage water run-off. Side and down discharge options available on all models.
Grille/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
Located inside the easily accessible furnace compartment is the control box, draft inducer motor, in-shot gas burners, the gas valve and manifold. 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.
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. All RRRL models feature a stainless steel heat exchanger which is backed by a limited lifetime warranty
