As an HVAC pioneer for nearly a century, Rheem has engineered many industry firsts that have gone on to become industry standards. That's due in part to our 360°+1 approach to designing new products. It means we evaluate every aspect of a product from top to bottom, inside and out, and every angle in between. We're improving on the things that matter most to you — Performance, Installability™ and Serviceability. And then we go the extra mile, making sure we pay attention to even the smallest details that will make your life that much easier. That's a concept we call, PlusOne™ — delivering the extra features that give your business unique selling, installation and serviceability advantages while providing homeowners with reliable, trustworthy comfort.
The new Rheem 90%+ Gas Furnace line is a perfect example of 360°+1 in action. We began by exploring every angle of the gas furnace. We worked closely with contractors, invited input from installers, spent time on service calls and spoke with homeowners to learn what mattered most to them. Then we completely re-engineered our furnace to improve every detail, focusing on 360° Performance™, 360° Installability™ and 360° Serviceability™. And then we went even further with exclusive PlusOne™ advantages.
Performance that goes beyond the numbers. Our new furnace line offers up to 98% AFUE, improved electrical efficiencies, up to 20% reduction in operating sound, a unique Heat Exchanger that provides up to 1 SEER point boost* in system efficiency and more rated combinations than before. But it's also reliable, durable and offers worry-free comfort for your customers for years to come.
PlusOne™ Ignition System - Our new gas furnaces utilize Rheem's exclusive, proven Direct Spark Ignition System with nine times more reliability than earlier generations of hot surface ignition. And with simple, one-screw front-access mounting, these igniters are easy to service as well.

"Installability" refers to all the added features that make installing the new Rheem 90%+ Gas Furnace easier and faster. We made our whole line multi-poise with more than two times as many furnace orientations than before and added an industry-exclusive feature: the PlusOne™
Water Management System.
PlusOne™ Water Management System - This is comprised of a patented Blocked Drain Sensor, a self-priming drain trap and pre-marked condensate hoses.
Thanks to our 360° approach you'll be in and out fast on service calls. From 1/4-turn door fasteners and hemmed edges, to a Heat Exchanger that is removable and replaceable, we engineered our new furnaces to make maintenance easier. Inside the cabinet, all you need is a 1/4" and 5/16" nut driver to access all major parts from the front. And to clean or service the blower, just loosen two screws and slide it out on the new rail system in any orientation, without having to remove the condensate trap.
PlusOne™ Diagnostics - Industry first seven-segment alphanumeric LED on all units and EcoNet™-enabled diagnostics* results in faster and more accurate diagnostics. Plus, you can easily rotate the LED a full 180° for down-flow applications so the display is always upright. And when matched with Rheem's exclusive EcoNet user interface^, you can get text-based messages on system health and conditions with complete diagnostic information on the furnace and other connected equipment - right at the thermostat.
