"Be Afraid, be very afraid"
This unit was installed in April of 2012. omg - I have the air conditioner repair man here more than I'm here. Every other day the air conditioner kicks off and they have to come to "reset" it. They have replaced just about every part, added coolant, drained coolant and reader coolant, the condenser, the boards just about everything. When it is working only half the house cools to the set thermostat setting and the other half of the house is 6 - 10 degrees warmer. Run - Run as fast as you can from this air conditioner.

"Don't buy Ruud"
3 ton 14 seer AC/natural gas furnace installed June 2010. ac went out June 2012. Parts still under warranty but waited 6 days and paid $1333.00 labor costs. I was confident that I had bought top of the line. Now I am only confident that it will go out again. When it does, I will never again buy Ruud. Read the other reviews here. Note that most negative reviews are on newer models and draw your own conclusions.

"Still going strong!!!!"
I have had my Ruud air conditioner for going on 23 or 24 years.....and guess what? It still works great. Sure, I've had to have it charged once or twice, but it is working pretty well for its age....

They are total garbage!!! From the furnace to the AC. My in-laws had this house and had it installed. Nothing but problems every year since day one. Now we have the house and it's nothing but problems every summer and winter something happens and it needs to be fixed. What a piece of crap!

"Unreliable - Critical Failures"
Do not buy. Extremely unreliable!. Model RSPM-A036JK. 3 critical failures within a yr. Process tube broke and leaked all r401 freon. Blower motor failure just after a year -- had to pay $150 for labor. Expansion valve failure just shortly thereafter. Another $200+ for labor. Poor quality components. Find a better brand that uses iso quality control production.

"Rudd air conditioner's are the best!"
We have had our air conditioner for six months. I like that it is a little oversized for our house, so it cools the house down in one minute. We had people tell us it was too big for our house, but it works like a dream! It's not cold and humid and wet in our house, it is just perfectly cool! We don't turn it on all the time, just when it is really hot out. Even then it cools the house down in no time at all. We have a digital thermostat hooked up to it and all we have to do is set it and forget it. the only thing we disliked about it is that we had to install it ourselves. We would buy the same brand again in a second. We would definately recommened the brand to a friend, rudd has a long standing tradition of being one of the best air conditioners there is.

"Don't do it! Piece of Junk"
This Ruud unit came with our house. It's five year warranty just ran out in September, two months ago. Currently we have very small leaks in both our compressor and evaporator coils after 5 years. And since the warranty is up, the cost of repair is not worth it. So while many people get 15-20 years out of their ac units, the one we have lasted 5 Pathetic. Apparently there is a charge for getting a piece under warranty which is terrible and we had another problem with the unit 2 years ago that required getting a new part under warranty. Please buy something else, but from reviews, don't do a Goodman either.
