Overview of Prestige

The Prestige gas furnace series is Rheem’s top-tier product line and carries models with AFUE ratings ranging from 80 to 96 percent. While units vary in features and efficiencies, all models stand at only 34 inches and feature a lightweight design for easy handling and access for installation and maintenance.

Of the five models in the Prestige Series, two offer 80 percent AFUE. These units feature a 2-stage variable speed motor, direct spark ignition and an insulated blower compartment with slow-open gas valve for quiet operation. These models can be installed with a communicating condenser unit for enhanced thermostat control, auto-configuration and diagnostics.

Most of the Complainant's Problems Seem Electrical

Most of the complainant's problems seem electrical. As a licensed tradesman, I installed my own furnace after an electrician friend installed(and line tested)a new 200 amp service. I then called in the supply company gas inspector who complimented me on the neat installation before I told him I installed it myself following the manufacturer's instructions. It's overdue a good cleaning yet the furnace has run great for over a year now, saving me a bundle. I think those folks having problems may be due to fluctuating power (real bad for microchip circuits)or sloppy contractor installation.

Other Prestige Reviews

The Prestige Series is well-received across the web. Review sites such as rate this series very highly, mentioning the modulating models are homeowners’ best choice for precise temperature control. Very low operating noise, a relatively low price and a solid warranty are additional features reviewers note.

Contractors on also believe the Prestige Series is one of Rheem’s best product lines. Many professional technicians recommend this unit to homeowners shopping for a new unit, citing the comfort control system and onboard diagnostics as incentives for purchasing this unit. With proper installation, they say, this unit should provide exceptional indoor air comfort and reliable performance.
