Rheem® Prestige® Series EcoNet® Enabled Variable Speed 20 SEER Heat Pump & Rheem® Prestige® Series EcoNet® Enabled Modulating 98% AFUE Gas Furnace

The Rheem® Prestige® Series Variable Speed 20 SEER Heat Pump and Modulating AFUE Gas Furnace perfectly compliment one another to create an ideal home comfort system.

The heat pump component offers cooling efficiencies up to 54% higher and heating efficiencies up to 58% higher than typical heat pump designs, while homeowners can expect more than $7,000 of lifetime energy savings.  The unit’s variable speed technology also allows it to adapt quickly and consistently to heating and cooling needs, regardless of outdoor conditions.

The R98V gas furnace component of the system utilizes a modulating gas valve and variable-speed blower technology to adjust automatically, delivering a more consistent indoor environment than alternatives and maximum heating efficiency. Rated to 98% AFUE, the furnace delivers 98 BTUs of heat for every 100 BTUs of gas input. The unit’s variable-speed ECM motor also uses less energy than a single-stage motor, which results in improved dehumidification and better indoor air quality.

Both elements of this Rheem system are EcoNet® enabled, allowing users access to a suite of smart features like remote temperature control, enhanced monitoring of energy usage, geofencing and the optional addition of the EcoNet Zoning System.

Judges’ Remarks
