"This is very reliable, wrks all year round especially during winter days."
We've owned this pump for about a year and a half. It works fabulous. We bought it off the air conditioning warehouse. it was actually on sale at that time. it wasn't that bad of a deal. But it still did cost some money though. it wasn't new but the sale was worth it. I like mostly everything about it. Once it started making a little more noise than usual getting into its first year then we got it checked out, but it turned out fine. Presently, I had have any more issues involving the pump. We just do air filters change, add refrigerant or what not to keep it running nice and cool. Well, definitely I would buy this brand of heat pump again. And I would recommend it to all my friends. it's one of the good ones. So far to us it seem Pretty reliable.

"My review of the Heat pump in my new condo."
I have really been amazed by the performance of this model. Coming from Virginia which is a tricky climate to heat and cool, I was very worried about how comparable units would preform in a desert environment. Luckily our condo came equipped with this unit and we couldn't be happier! The response time is very fast, and the airflow is beyond what I expected for the price range. All in all it's a great product, and after talking to several other owners, I can say for sure that it's a quality product, with a long expected life, and a repair budget that I believe I can manage.

"I love my Rheem 15PJL Series."
Four years ago, when I bought my first house, I needed a heat pump. I bought a Rheem 15PJL Series heat pump with tips from my father. I am in love with it. My house stays warm all winter, and it saves me so much money. I've had it for 4 years and I have never needed a repair or replacement. I couldn't ask for more from this heat pump. I recommend this to anyone that needs a heat pump. Rheem is the best. The quality is unbeatable!

"The Best Friend of the Winter"
We just installed this heat pump last winter. Our other one had broken and we were without heat for almost a week. Hence the name I put on this review and let me tell you, I will never go without heat again! I love this as its quiet. When it clicks on you would never know. I doubt I could find anything I don't like about it. The thing runs smooth and purrs like a kitten. The one I had before this was similar, I couldn't tell you if it was the same but I would imagine replacing them would be the same so I would have to say it's probably really difficult to replace this bad boy if you ever needed to. Oh I would indeed recommend this to a friend. I've not had a problem with this one and it runs smoothly without a bump or hiccup. A plus all the way!

" 14 year old Rheem"
I owned a Rheem classic viii high effeciency heat pump since 1995. I had three problems over its life. The defrost card failed twice and the compressor pressure line failed due to being improperly supported from the factory. The lline cracked just downstream of the compressor. The compressor is about to fail now. It keeps shutting down on the thermal over heat, but the pressures look good. It has been a fairly good unit all things considered. Two of my friends installed similar Rheem units at about the same time. All three lasted between 12 and 14 years, so that appears to be about the life of the unit.
