The JAZ heat pump in both RPNL-JAZ and RPQL-JAZ models are part of Rheem’s Classic Series. These compact, single-stage units have efficiency ratings as high as 15.5 SEER and 9.1 HSPF, helping them attain Energy Star qualifications. They units are suited for single- and multi-family residences as well as light commercial buildings.
Quiet and efficient operation is enabled in JAZ heat pumps in part by the less restrictive upward air discharge. This model’s Copeland scroll compressor and PSC fan motor help contribute to energy savings and quiet function. Operation of these heat pumps produces 72 decibels, which is roughly the equivalent of the average vacuum cleaner’s noise.
Built to be durable, a louvered wrap-around jacket protects the Rheem JAZ heat pumps from weather-related damage. The weather-protected cabinet is made with galvanized steel. One cabinet panel is removable for easy access to the controls, helping to minimize service costs. Furthermore, the steel-reinforced top grill is also removable, allowing the condenser fan motor and coil to be easily reached in the event of needed repairs. The motor windings and bearings are protected from precipitation by the under-mount grill/motor design, and all models undergo salt-spray testing to ensure their durability in weather extremes.
