Focus on Energy Efficiency for More Savings
Rheem’s state-of-the-art furnace systems reduce the loss of heat and lower energy consumption by using a blanket of insulation lining inside the cabinet walls, making their models more efficient than some others on the market. Some other features that make their models more energy efficient include:
Rheem Classic® Series and Classic® Plus Lines use technology that pulls hot gases through the heat exchanger at a constant and controlled rate, keeping the heated air in the system instead of letting it escape.
Lack of Pilot Lights
Many Rheem furnace systems use electric ignition gets rid of the need to have a constantly-burning pilot light, giving you up to 6% higher efficiency.
Uses of Hot Vent Gases
The Classic Series® 2-Stage 90 Plus furnace routes hot gases through a second heat exchanger, capturing wasted heat and delivering AFUE efficiency ratings up to 95%.
