Rheem Prestige Furnace Overview

The Prestige gas furnace series is Rheem’s top-tier product line and carries models with AFUE ratings ranging from 80 to 96 percent.

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.

Rheem Prestige Furnace Reviews

"Most of the Complainant’s Problems Seem Electrical"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

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.

Very low operating noise, a relatively low price and a solid warranty are additional features reviewers note.
