17 months and two coils Fail
Replaced old "contractor special" unit with a new Rheem inside and out - day of original Rheem installation, the coil leaked. They (the contractor) replaced the coil quickly and everything seemed to be OK.
Now, 17 months later, the central ac unit needed 2 lbs of R410A and sniff test points to another leaking coil.
$150 for initial call fee and 2 lbs of freon, then quoted $650 in labor to replace the busted coil. UNBELIEVABLE! This review is more about my contractor than the Rheem - but I want to believe that they (the contractor) used Rheem parts, and if that is the case, then they have a QC issue in their coil division.
When the central ac system is and stays charged, the AC works very well - pleased with the 17 degree delta even in our stupidly hot attic. I do believe Rheem makes a quality product, but they need to address the coil issues as it seems to be a common topic.
