Solution spotlights efficiency, serviceability

One of Rheem’s latest HVAC energy-efficient solutions is something of a renaissance for commercial applications.

Considering the anticipated impact, it’s perhaps no wonder the product carries the same name.

In fact, Rheem rebuilt its Fort Smith, Ark., factory to product its Renaissance line of rooftop units, said Lindsey Ford, the company’s communications manager.

“It’s the rebirth of our commercial platform in HVAC,” she said. “From an efficiency standpoint, we’re seeing a lot of interest in higher efficiency equipment.”

The unit’s sports a universal design to fit most any footprint, whether it’s new construction or a retrofit. It’s also equipped with innovative technologies to exceed the new Department of Energy’s IEER requirements.

Renaissance is the result of customer feedback, which offered input that shaped everything from its design to functionality. The platform, rolled out in late 2017, will be more widely available in 2018.

“With all of our new products, we take a very customer-centric process to developing them,” Ford said.

The goal was to make it so components are easy to see, easy to get to and easy access.

“That way, it’s not a mystery and it’s not hard,” Ford said.
