A member of Rheemís Classic Series, the RPNL is a single-stage heat pump manufactured for single, multi-family and light commercial use. Standing at only 33 inches tall, the RPNL is designed to accommodate for easy installation in tight spots and quick maintenance.
The RPNL features up to 15.5 SEER and 9.1 HSPF, and uses a PCS fan motor for quiet, energy-saving operation.

"Reviewing my Heat Pump"
The heat pump we own is the RHEEM RPNL-048JAZ 4 TON SPLIT SYSTEM HEAT PUMP 13 SEER R-410. We have had this heat pump at our house for over a year. I disliked the fact that it was worth so much money however it was definitely worth the hefty price tag. The way the house is kept heated is second to none. Also, there is barely any sound from the system and the pump itself is also relatively quiet. Noise was a major problem we had with the previous system. There have been no major repairs on this, there was only one time where the fan was making some weird noises but it was simply because it needed to be cleaned out a bit. I would definitely recommend this heat pump to anyone who wants something of quality however be prepared to pay upwards of 1000$ for it. This heat pump is certainly not cheap but you will not be disappointed.

"Solid and Effective"
I have owned my heat pump for the last year and it has been a good heat pump. This heat pump will get the job done effectively most of the time. However, there were a few occasions where the pump did not kick in right away and took a few extra seconds to work properly. I have not had my heat pump repaired after my 1 year of use. I would probably buy the same heat pump again unless someone offered me a comparable quality heat pump for a cheaper price. I would definitely recommend this heat pump to a friend, but I would tell my friend to shop around to see if they could possibly find something better. However, I think they would have a difficult time finding something better if you combine the quality and cost effectiveness of this heat pump. A good product at a good price!
