33The Rheem R96V Prestige Series Gas Furnace was designed using our 360°+1 process, which means every detail of the product is meticulously evaluated from every angle. We consider the work that goes into installing and servicing our products, as well as how we can deliver the very best homeowner experience. And then we take it a step further. That’s 360°+1. And that’s why you can count on your gas furnace to bring you and your family years of comfort.
We’ve Thought of Everything
Industry-first patented features and 360°+1 engineering make the Rheem R96V Prestige Series Gas Furnace a smart option. From top to bottom, inside and out, and every angle in between, we’ve thought of everything to bring you efficient and reliable indoor comfort.
Enjoy greater comfort and performance thanks to a two-stage operation that offers a more consistent indoor environment — keeping cold spots to a minimum. The two-stage heating design primarily operates on low-speed, only temporarily switching to high during peak cold-weather conditions.
Quiet and efficient comfort is what you get with a Rheem Prestige Series Gas Furnace. The new patented heat exchanger design provides improved airflow, which reduces operating sound by 20%**. The variable-speed ECM motor also contributes to a quiet, more efficient operation. It’s engineered to provide better humidity control while using less power. Overall, this is one of the quietest furnaces on the market. And because it’s high-efficiency, your monthly energy bill will benefit, too.
Reliability is of the utmost importance when it comes to your home’s comfort. Our Prestige Series Gas Furnace comes standard with the Rheem-exclusive PlusOne Ignition System. This proven direct spark ignition (DSI) is one of the most reliable ignition systems available today. Used exclusively by Rheem in the Heating and Cooling industry, this proven technology is also used on ovens and stoves — appliances that you rely on daily to ignite.
Protect your home with our PlusOne Water Management System. The industry’s first blocked drain sensor will shut off your furnace when a drain is blocked, preventing water spillage and potential water damage to your home. All this and one of the best warranties in the industry translate to fewer repair bills and more cozy nights at home.
Easy installation and maintenance features benefit consumers, too. This means savings on installation costs and maintenance. The Rheem Prestige Series Gas Furnace is designed with PlusOne Diagnostics — our industry-first, 7-segment LED display that makes service calls quick and easy.
