Rheem Prestige High Efficiency Air Conditioner and Air Handler
(Port Richey FL.)
I purchased a new Rheem Prestige High Efficiency Air Conditioner and Air Handler two years ago. It is quiet and efficient but not without problems.
After installation by a reputable dealer it suddenly stopped working.
Called installer and according to them there was too much Freon (diagnostics.)After dispelling an amount, central air conditioner ran very well.
Second service call involved a leak in the condenser in the attic and replaced condensor unit under warranty.
Found leak in main air conditioner also.
Short time later it failed to cool again. Service found leak again in main unit and had to replace the valve that controls the heat or air function. This was also done under warranty.
This is not a good record for a two year old complete unit (Air Conditioner & Air Handler).
We are in Florida and in the summer (This is when it has failed) it is just awful to be without air. Might consider another brand next time.
