Rheem RQNM Series 13 Seer Heat Pump Package Units
The Rheem RQNM Series 13 Seer heat pump package units are a leap forward in providing low cost, superior operating performance for residential and light commercial applications.
They are mobile home approved and will provide numerous options for contractors and homeowners looking for an all-in-one unit with hassle-free installation.
Top rated quality and value
The Rheem brand was recently given a top rating by the leading consumer advocacy group among all major heating and air conditioning manufacturers. Quality claims are a dime a dozen - documented and published results are much harder to come by.
The RQ Series heat pump package unit's compact size and flush mount installation capability not only provides an attractive appearance that leaves no unsightly, dangerous or unsanitary gaps, but also better performance and energy efficiency as a result of additional coil clearance.
Additionally, full louver coil protection completely protects the coil from weather extremes and yard hazards.
The cabinet has a powder painted finish that protects it from the harshest weather extremes and keeps it looking new for years.
All of these benefits and advantages make the RQ series package unit the perfect choice for homes with space or ducting limitations.
A perfect package of features
Using a compact footprint in all sizes ranging from two to five tons, the Rheem RQNM Series mobile home approved package heat pump unit features the high-quality Copeland Scroll compressor, absolutely the smoothest, quietest, most durable compressor ever developed.
Because it has fewer moving parts, there is very little to wear out. In fact, over time this compressor actually "wears in" and becomes more efficient. Scroll Details
Other features include forkable base rails that allow for separation between the unit base and the ground, a removable drain pan, easily accessible evaporator coil and indoor blower assembly; high-static airflow, and a field installed heat strip where heating is desired.
Designed with installation ease in mind
When Rheem engineers and product development teams finished the design, they traveled throughout North America asking for feedback from contractors on how to improve on the package unit design concept.
The contractors provided many suggestions for installation and service-friendly design enhancements, and those changes were quickly incorporated into the final product design.
Rheem has designed this package heat pump for ground level or rooftop installation with a side-by-side supply and return duct configuration. It can be installed in mobile or modular homes, on flat rooftops, or any home with an open crawl space.
It will normally require about 4-6 hours to replace an existing, similar type system. For you do-it-yourselfers replacing an existing package unit, simply connect your existing supply and return ducts along with the electrical connections, and the installation is complete.
Only a qualified electrician should make the electrical connections. We don't believe you'll find a better combination of quality and value in package heat pump units anywhere, at any price.
Copeland Scroll Compressor Details
Once in a while, a new technology is developed that gains widespread acceptance through superior function and design; the Copeland Scroll Compressor has gained respect and industry-wide acceptance through time-tested field use and not from laboratory theory.
The Copeland Scroll Compressor has proven itself to be the quietest and most dependable ever created.
The Copeland Scroll technology is based on the concept of compliance.Two scroll members interact to simultaneously achieve high efficiency and durability.
This efficient twisting motion greatly reduces the numbers of parts that can fail while eliminating the inefficient up and down piston motion of ordinary compressors.
This unique and patented approach. achieving both radial and axial compliance - provides important advantages:
Under the terms of all manufacturer's warranty and to comply with federal refrigerant handling laws, it is required that the system be checked, started up and signed-off on by a licensed air conditioning/heating contractor prior to use. Failure to comply with this provision will void all factory warranties. Keep a copy of the installation ticket for your records. Please ensure that all supply and return ductwork is properly sized and that a permit is obtained (where required). Always conform with applicable local and state codes. Electrical connections should only be made by a licensed electrical contractor. Unqualified persons should never attempt installation of this or any HVAC system.
