The Rheem Story

Rheem Manufacturing Company was established in the mid-1920s when brothers Richard and Donald Rheem acquired a galvanizing plant in San Francisco, California. In the 1930’s, Rheem began manufacturing water heaters, and by 1936 had coast to coast distribution. During the 1940s and 1950s, the company increased its product line to include space heating units for homes, oil furnaces and air conditioners.

In 1959, Rheem acquired Ruud Manufacturing Company, a pioneer in the water heating industry with a distribution network throughout North America. In subsequent years, Rheem entered the heating and air conditioning market and expanded in the late 1960’s and 1970’s with the rapid growth of the central air conditioning industry.

Rheem is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. It manufactures in Fort Smith, Arkansas; Montgomery, Alabama; Oxnard, California; Acadia, Florida; and Eagan, Minnesota. All manufacturing facilities are ISO 9001 certified. Rheem operates a state-of-the-art Parts Distribution center in Randleman, NC and distribution facilities throughout the US and Canada.

The Rheem Prestige Series® High Efficiency Two-Stage Heat Pump

These units offer comfort, energy conservation and dependability for single, multi-family and light commercial applications.The Comfort Control System™ provides:

  • On-Board Diagnostics – The Rheem exclusive 7-Segment LED Display on the control board quickly and accurately shows your contractor the source of system malfunctions, saving you time and money.
  • Fault Recall – Even if there is a power failure, this feature will retain the system’s “operation history” and will display it on the control board during service calls.
  • Active Protection – The feature monitors your system to prevent the compressor from operating when potentially harmful conditions are detected.
  • Increased Dependability – The thermostat communication capability can alert you to any necessary service requirements, giving you peace of mind that your home comfort is guaranteed.

Add to that a galvanized steel cabinet, a special base pan that elevates the unit off the pad and away from corrosive condensation, and a motor mount that prevents damage to your fan motor – all extending its service life and providing quiet operation and improved efficiency.

Rheem’s Packaged Systems

All of their residential package units – regardless of efficiency level – feature the Scroll Compressor. These scroll compressors use a more advanced technology than traditional reciprocating compressors. They have fewer moving parts, and they are quieter, more efficient, and longer lasting.

The cabinets have a powder painted finish that protects them from the harshest weather extremes. And our louvered condenser compartment is one of the best in the industry for protecting the condenser coil against yard hazards and weather extremes.

The blower is has been designed to match the MultiFlex® evaporator coil and other system components for maximum efficiency and quiet operation. In addition, the coil features rifled copper tubing and enhanced fins for improved efficiency.

The grille/fan motor mount helps protect the fan motor from the elements for longer life, reducing reduce vibration and noise. And the operational controls are “up front” for quick installation and easy service diagnostics. Optional supplemental electric heating strips can provide supplemental heating capacity during periods of extreme cold.

Rheem also carries a complete line of package systems for commercial needs to satisfy your company’s needs for size and control systems.
