Rheem’s Classic Series consists of six different gas furnace lines. Three of these lines offer 80 percent AFUE, while the remaining three operate with up to 95 percent AFUE. All models in this series feature a low 34-inch profile and are available in an upflow/horizontal and downflow configurations.
The 80-percent AFUE products offer a range of performance features. The top-tier option features two-stage heating with a PSC motor and high efficiency; the second provides several models with a single-stage ECM X-13 motor and the promise of high efficiency; and the third line in this series features a single-stage PSC motor and promotes standard efficiency. The 80-percent lines also feature an insulated blower motor compartment and direct spark ignition.
Two of the Classic Series’ 95-percent AFUE lines operate with two-stage heating; one uses a V.S. ECM and the other a PCS motor. The last line in this series uses a single-stage PCS motor for high-efficiency heating. Each of these models advertise quiet operation with an insulated blower motor compartment and induced draft motor and blower motor.
