Other JEC Reviews
A homeowner poses a question on gardenweb.com about replacing a heat pump system. The consumer has received estimates on units from Trane, Lennox, and Rheem. The Rheem JEC heat pump unit is priced higher than the others, but the experts determine that the quote is for a larger-sized unit. Two contractors recommend that the homeowner have load calculation performed so he will be able to purchase the correct size. The Rheem heat pump receives favorable comments from the contractors.
Another post about how a Rheem heat pump compares to a Trane heat pump appears on hvac-talk.com. The contractors seem divided on the two units; both receive favorable reviews from various installers. Several seem to like Rheem’s thermostat and warranty and the unit’s simple, solid design.
A consumer asks about the reputation of Rheem heat pumps on another post on hvac-talk.com. The experts respond that Rheem makes excellent products, but advise that the consumer find an installer who will perform a load calculation as that is the mark of a true HVAC professional. Overall, Rheem products seem to get high marks on the HVAC forums.
