Why You Should Consider a Rheem Air Conditioning Unit
Although the final decision about which AC unit you choose is more a matter of personal taste than of right and wrong, a Rheem air conditioning unit is a sound choice and performs well in a variety of situations. Whether you’re a homeowner, a small business owner, or even a large company looking to cool commercial buildings, Rheem offers a solid line of hardworking and high-tech air conditioners suitable for each application. Here are some of the things that set Rheem apart as a high-end AC company and a savvy choice for your next AC purchase.
Unsurpassed cooling power
The first thing you need to know about any air conditioning unit is whether it can reliably and powerfully cool your house. Because Tucson is a hot, dry climate, one of the ways to determine whether a particular unit will work well here is to look at its EER rating. (The SEER is important as an indicator of energy efficiency over a variety of conditions, but the EER helps you judge whether the unit will perform well in specific conditions that, coincidentally, are very similar to those found in a hot climate.) Fortunately, Rheem air conditioning units come with good EER ratings, perhaps even better overall than TRANE’s.
Indoor air quality
Maintaining high indoor air quality is vital to your own and your family’s health. Mold spores, bacteria, pollen, pet dander, and other irritants can quickly build up in your home if air isn’t properly filtered. These particles can then cause or trigger a number of health problems. And the dust that gets into your ductwork can even cause problems with your AC system itself. It can reduce the effectiveness of air cooling, put extra strain on your unit, and cost you money by increasing energy bills and perhaps even repair bills. Rheem offers products that help prevent these possibilities by comprehensively filtering out unwanted particles from your air. Two such products are:
- Rheem air filters. Replacing your AC filters regularly will ensure maximum effectiveness against unwanted air particles.
- The Rheem Whole-House Electronic Air Cleaner. With three-stage air filtration, this product uses electronic attraction to collect and hold particles.
In addition to cooling power and climate compatibility, SEER and EER ratings also help you compare energy efficiency between models. The higher the rating is, the more efficient (and therefore eco-friendly) the unit is. Rheem offers many high-SEER models, one of which (with a SEER of 19.5) made it onto a list of highest SEER ratings for 2016. Rheem also designs all its units to use a modern, eco-friendly refrigerant (R-410a).
Going green may be its own reward, but it confers several more tangible rewards as well. The federal government may require you to pay income tax each year, but if you install a high-efficiency AC unit, it will give some of that money right back in the form of tax credits. The federal tax credit for installing an Energy Star-certified unit isn’t intended to cover the entire cost, but can help you afford the higher-end unit by defraying the price premium you pay for it. The tax credit will pay for ten percent of the total cost of each eligible new unit. And, depending on where you live, federal tax credits may not be the end of it; you may be able to take advantage of state or local financial incentives, such as rebates offered by your local power company, as well.
Reputation and warranty
Rheem has been a high-quality manufacturer since its founding in 1925, and it upholds its longstanding tradition of great products and great customer service by guaranteeing every unit you buy. The company stands by its products with several different types of warranty; you can get a limited warranty just by registering your unit online, or you can choose to upgrade to a more comprehensive warranty.
