RUUD Silhouette II Furnace Overview

The Ruud Silhouette II is a discontinued upflow gas furnace with an efficiency of up to 78.7% AFUE. The Silhouette II includes models that begin with UGPH and UGLH. Its low-profile, 34-inch design made the unit lighter and easier to handle, and left room for optional equipment. The patented Turbolex heat exchanger was constructed of corrosion-resistant stainless and aluminized steel. It featured a multi-speed blower motor and insulated blower compartment, and the draft inducer motor was designed for improved sound reduction. The unit had a permanent washable filter with improved filter access and removal.

"20 years, still going"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Furnace installed in new construction in 1998, it’s now 2018. Still working just like new. Have had to replace the igniter once and flame sensor once. About $10, 2-minute DIY repairs.


"It’s fine"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

This unit has been in the house since 1998, and ours since 2006. So it’s 16 years old, and I’m googling a condensate pump because that’s what the guy says it needs. Seems like a pretty good ‘speaks for itself’ review to me! The house has always been warm , except for that one room, and that’s probably not the furnace…

"Do not buy this crap"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

I have had to have this unit repaired no less than 5 times. Now is atleast 6th time. One should think that a new unit would last at least 5 years without breaking down, but this unit failed atleast 4 times the first 5 years. I would never recomend a ruud or a rheem as they are the same products with different name plates.
