After posting back and forth with a contractor, the consumer decides to go with a more efficient heat pump, deciding against the Rheem value series. That decision may have come about as the expert poster mentions rumors circulating about problems with the PJL series.
A more recent post on gardenweb.com concerns a homeowner trying to decide between quotes on a Rheem Value Series unit or a Lennox or Trane unit. An expert states that Rheem is one of the most overlooked and underrated systems, and he recommends it highly.
The experts on hvac-talk.com give Rheem favorable ratings overall, but at least one contractor mentions that the PJL models are inexpensive and may not be as well-built as some of the manufacturer�s other models.
