Ruud UP17 Heat Pump Overview

The Ruud UP17, also known as the Achiever Plus UP17, is an Energy Star qualified, three-stage heat pump with efficiencies of up to 18.5 SEER and 9.0 HSPF. A variable-speed scroll compressor provides three-stage operation for maximum comfort and efficiency. The UP17 is EcoNet enabled, allowing it to be integrated with other Ruud heating, cooling and water heating products and managed remotely. An improved tubing design, combined with enhanced mufflers and a corrosion-resistant composite base pan, help reduce vibration for quieter unit operation. A diagnostic service window with two-fastener opening, 15″ wide corner service access and external gauge port access make the UP17 easy to service. Curved louvered panels with rugged corner posts enhance cabinet strength, and a powder coat paint finish and rust resistant screws protect against rust and corrosion.
