Rheem was founded in California by Richard and Donald Rheem in 1925. The Rheem mission is dedicated to helping families enjoy the comforts of their homes without the hassle of worrying about warmth or cooling. Rheem claims to be “the only manufacturer in the world that produces heating, cooling, water heating, pool/spa heating and commercial refrigeration products.” 

Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • Focused on Industry
  • Experience

Focused on Industry

Many the big brands in the HVAC industry provide services in many different industries. Rheem specializes in home comfort and HVAC products. Its products range from air conditioners, heat pumps, and gas furnaces to air handlers, oil furnaces, and indoor air quality systems.


Though it is unclear when Maytag began offering heating and cooling service, the company itself has been around since 1893. Though its experience is rooted in home appliances, it likely has learned much about the HVAC industry in its long years of supplying consumers’ homes.


The Bad

  • Undisclosed Information
  • Customer Support

Undisclosed Information

Warranty information may be difficult to come by for customers who do not yet know which products they will be buying. Customers must first register their products online to discover warranty lengths. The Rheem warranty guide is supposed to show warranty information, but it is not currently available for download. Additionally, the website does not have information regarding any fees.

Customer Support

The website does not include a chat service for those who need quick information. Those who wish to learn more from a company representative must submit a formal request through the Rheem “Contact Form.” Since its website does not specify whether it runs customer support 24/7, consumers have no way of knowing how long it will be to receive answers to their questions.


The Bottom Line

Though the Rheem website is highly informative, it doesn’t present much information that customers are concerned with. Customers who want to know information about warranties aren’t able to download the warranty guide for additional information. Rheem has a big brand name, so one might expect to be able to have 24/7 customer support; however, currently, Rheem only provides customer with a contact form to be filled out. We cannot recommend that customers choose Rheem.

Karl Strom Minneapolis, MN

Had to replace my aging HVAC, I contractor friend told me about Rheem. Now that it's all installed, new furnace, A-coil and condenser my house is finally cool and warm. Since I built new 16 years ago I knew the system was undersized for the SQ feet. Man what a difference. Went with the R96VA furnace and RA1636AJ condenser. It's working out very nice for comfort and very quite. Install and price were fair, and I'm an HVAC guy. I would recommend these units to anyone. It's very balanced air.

We had a RHEEM HVAC unit in our home since 1999 when it was originally built. We started having issues with it last year. Company and its representives are honest and not pushy. They give out fair & reasonable estimates and didnt try & push me to buy on the spot. Would def do business with them again & give a referral.

I moved into a 40 year old home last year. it still has the original Rheem AC unit outside and a furnace inside. they worked great for a few months when i noticed my new wood floors were buckling or warping before my eyes, and then water started seeping up from the floor. detected a clog in the AC unit's pipework. They cleaned up the water and put a bucket under the pipes and advised me to call an AC specialist- so American Home Shield sent Beaches AC to come and unplug the clogged pipe. Needless to say, my floors were completely ruined by now from a clogged pipe in my Rheem AC unit, which was functioning perfectly, except for the clogged pipe. THERE WAS NOTHING MALFUNCTIONING WITH THE RHEEM UNIT- IT IS STILL WORKING , we were advised to add a little bleach in the pipes each month to keep clogs away. Rheem AC units are great

Used a Rheem HVAC at my earlier home. They served us well for 11 years before the HVAC for first floor had a crack in heating system and had to replace it. The one on second floor is still going strong for 14+ years now.

Had to get a new water heater recently and I've been very happy with the Rheem we had installed. Our system has the "smart" feature and connects to my phone via an app. I like this feature a lot! I put my system on vacation mode when we are out of town and it doesn't heat water until we are on our way home.

We love our new high efficiency Rheem Air Conditioner and Furnace. We went from a Swamp cooler to a new AC with Rheem and we started to complain about the electricity bill in the summer, until we talked to our friends who don't have as good of a system set up at their house, and our electrical bill is a fraction of their cost! Great product, great efficiency!
