The benefits of a Rheem gas furnace include a two-stage function that minimizes cold spots and an improved design and motor which ensures quieter performance and easy installation and maintenance. Other benefits include energy savings and the PlusOne Water Management System.
Rheem gas furnaces have a two-stage operating function, allowing the furnace to operate at just 70 percent of full heat capacity when only mild to moderate heating is required. When more heat is required, the unit shifts to high-heating mode and works at 100 percent. The patented heat exchanger system improves airflow and reduces noise by 20 percent. The ECM motor is capable of variable speeds, and further reduces noise and power consumption, while providing improved humidity control.
The Prestige series is equipped with Rheem's exclusive PlusOne Ignition System. This Direct Spark Ignition is among the most reliable systems available today, making it both easy and safe to turn on the furnace. Rheem's PlusOne Water Management System has sensors that shut off the furnace when a drain is blocked. This can substantially reduce the possibility of water damage in the eventuality of a plumbing failure.
Another industry first is the PlusOne Diagnostics feature. This 7-segment LED display records and shows the serviceman the exact source of the malfunction. The LED display even works without power, making repairs entirely accurate and much quicker to carry out.
