The limitations of Rheem air conditioning units include high prices, risk of defective coils, risk of AC coil leakage, short lifespan, and potential copper coil corrosion. Rheem air conditioning units produce loud noises and are reputed to require constant repairs.
Different Rheem air conditioning models have unique features that may not be present in all models. For example, the price of Rheem central air conditioning is relatively high compared to other models. The central air conditioner unit is sometimes constructed with defective evaporator coils, which may leak shortly after installation. Several parts such as the fan blade and compressor may break after a few uses. Parts that do not wear out completely, may require regular repair, which is costly.
Copper coil corrosion sometimes occurs during the cooling cycle as a result of the different oils used in specific models. Some models may produce an unpleasant loud noise in and outside the house, which can be uncomfortable for users. Some models may require constant repairs. In other cases, certain parts cannot be found in the market, making it difficult to repair the units.
If the air conditioner breaks within the warranty period, the company compensates only for replacement parts; there is no protection under the warranty for labor costs.
