Rheem heat pumps operate quietly compared to many other units. Rheem heat pumps feature a special grille design with the fan on the bottom of the grille. This directs the airflow upwards and away from any plants and protects the fan from the elements.
Rheem sells many heat pumps, including classic heat pumps, compact heat pumps, quiet heat pumps and specialty heat pumps. In the 1920s, Donald and Richard Rheem founded Rheem Manufacturing Company. In the 1930s, Rheem began manufacturing water heaters. By the 1950s, the company’s merchandise included air conditioners, oil furnaces and space heating units. Rheem bought Ruud Manufacturing company in 1959, adding a larger distribution network to their company.
