Rheem heat pumps are reliable and energy efficient! Learn more about your options with this Guide.
The Rheem Manufacturing Company was founded during the 1920s when Donald and Richard Rheem bought a galvanizing factory in San Francisco. The company started making their 'Rheem' heat pump in the 1930s.
Other heating and cooling products such as air conditioners, oil furnaces and space heaters were added to Rheem's product lines during the 1940s and 1950s.
Rheem acquired the comparable manufacturing company 'Ruud' in 1959. This significantly increased Rheem's distribution capability. In addition, Rheem also acquired the company 'Raypak' in 1985, which manufactures copper boilers.
The company currently produces several lines of Rheem heat pumps in a range of prices. Most of these heat pumps have a conditional warranty of five years.
