The Rheem Prestige heat pump refers to two series of discontinued heat pumps.. One series was the two-stage communicating motor heat pumps, or RPEL-JEC models. The other series included the single and two-stage models RPNL-, RPQL-, and RPRL-JEZ.
The Prestige communicating motor heat pumps offered serial communication if installed with specific air handlers and a specific thermostat. This allowed the unit to configure automatically and provide a higher level of comfort. The RPEL models also allowed the heat pump to be wired to an existing thermostat. The communication aspect seemed to be the only major difference in the two series.
Both series of the Rheem Prestige heat pumps can achieve a SEER of up to seventeen. All of the Prestige heat pumps utilize refrigerants with no CFC's or HCFC's to harm the environment.
