"Rheem a/c unit"
We purchased a Rheem a/c unit in June, 2010. On June 27, 2012 we had a service call for an evaporator coil leak. It was repaired on 7/10/2012 for a total cost of $339. After only 2 years (and not running the unit 12 months of the year), this should not be happening. We previously owned a Goodman unit and had numerous service calls for the same thing. We thought we were upgrading to a better quality unit. Boy, were we wrong!! In our previous home, we had an a/c unit that lasted for 22 years and never had any serious problems with it.

Builder Plantation had this unit installed in attic less than 5 years ago. Now had to have the coil replaced due to coil leak. It cost me $1,075 dollars for labor although the part was under warranty.

Well I guess thats just how they operate!! Hvac system is junk!! The Water Heater is junk! I have been through countless replacement parts! They are also junk!!! If you value your money then I suggest picking another brand! They ripped me off and probably a lot of others!!!

"I Hope Mine Is Around For Another Twenty"
We got a 3 ton when we were told a 2 ton would do. We did it for two reasons, one the unit would not have to work as hard and two we may add onto our home. We have not done anything other than clean and oil the unit in twenty years. The furnace part of it, had to have a new control panel put it in at 15 years and we did that ourselves for the cost of $225.00. It was easy, there is a trouble shooting light on the unit that lets you know what you need to replace. I don't know if the new Rheems are as good as mine, but I hope mine is around for another twenty. Take care of your units and they'll take care of you.

I have used Rheem products before and always satisfied, until now. I purchase a ac/ air- heat unit on 3-9-09 for my home. The installer said it was one of the top of the line, quite very reliable unit. not. Two weeks after it was installed I had to call him back to come check it out because it was so noisy that you could not stand to carry on a conversation if you were any room close by that location of unit. He says it is fine, he has not been back. I do not agree, this unit is no where near any product that I have used with the Rheem name on it. As time goes by it sounds like a part is going to come a loose and fly the walls of my home. This would not be a safe unit to have and pay the amount I paid. I could have paid less and got another brand, but I liked the Rheem products. Will not recommend this product like it is.

"Not a good brand"
I have spent more than $1000.00 repairing this unit. I had one GE for 35 years I spent less in repairs. Never buy this brand again.

"piece of junk"
Got it in July 2009. Worked fine for one day. The stupid thermostat keeps saying call for service. Stopped working about 20 times since then in Florida that's unbearable. I had to buy a window unit as a backup for when it breaks.

"My Rheem Keeps Me Cool"
I've had my Rheem air conditioner about a year now and it is an upgrade indeed this summer. I live in South Florida and I put an air conditioner through its paces almost all year round! It cools the house efficiently and quickly and despite the fact that it is a larger A/C unit than my last one, it is efficient enough in how it uses energy that I have not seen a large jump in my energy bill.

"It's an alright unit."
Runs perfectly during the winter months when its responsible for heating the house. There also have been little to no issues with cooling during months of lighter cooling usage, such as May and June. But in the months of July and August, when the temperature often soars to 100 degrees, I feel like the unit struggles to keep up with the cooling needs of our condo. During these times it'll take a bit longer to recognize how hot it is, meaning that for a while we'll be sweating it out while we wait for the unit to kick back on again (we have it set to automatic). Either way it's not that serious a problem, just felt it was worth mentioning. We've never had to make any repairs to it, which is great! I would have no problems recommending this model to a friend.
