R97V 80 Rheem Gas Furnace Review

Modulating Rheem Furnace R97V Review

The Rheem Furnace R97V offers the ultimate in comfort and maximum efficiency, as well as exceptional quality and reliability. This latest entry in the Prestige Series is an excellent choice for Colorado and Wyoming homeowners.

Comfort & Performance

The Rheem R97V combines 3 key features for maximum benefit.

  • A modulating gas valve – Modulating operation saves energy and optimizes comfort throughout your home. Because it automatically adjusts to minimize cold spots you don’t have to worry about adjusting the temperature yourself.
  • A variable-speed ECM blower motor – Variable speed allows for incremental adjustments, so whatever the conditions are outdoors, you experience just the right amount of air flow indoors. The variable speed motor also provides better humidity control and the new patented heat exchanger design improves airflow and reduces operating sound.
  • The EcoNetTM Control Center* lets you easily adjust your comfort settings from home or away and receive important alerts and reminders about your system.

Reliability

The R97V uses the Rheem-exclusive PlusOne Ignition System, one of the most reliable ignition systems available today. In fact, this proven direct spark ignition (DSI) is not only used exclusively by Rheem in the heating and cooling industry, it is also used on other appliances such as ovens and stoves that require a reliable ignition on a daily basis.

Security

The PlusOne Water Management System automatically shuts off your furnace to prevent water spillage and potential water damage to your home when it senses a blocked drain.

Installation & Maintenance Savings

The R97V has a smart design for easy installation which means less expense to you. The PlusOne Diagnostics 7-segment LED display makes service calls quick and easy as well.

Maximum Efficiency

The R97V Rheem Prestige Series Gas Furnace is not only high-performing, it gets an ENERGY STAR® rating for maintaining comfortable temperatures while reducing energy consumption and lowering utility bills. With an impressive 97% AFUE rating, the R97V is not only economical to operate, it may also be more affordable to purchase with local and/or utility rebates. (A Rheem Pro Partner can help you determine what rebates you qualify for.)

Peace of Mind

All this comfort, performance, efficiency and savings also comes with one of the best warranties in the industry. That translates to fewer repair bills and worry-free operation.
