The new Rheem Prestige Series High-Efficiency Combination Boilers provide an elegant solution for your home’s heat and hot water needs by conveniently putting both vital systems in one efficient package. Each Rheem Combination Boiler is a single unit that heats both the air in your home and the water you use every day.
The Combi offers several important features and benefits:
- High Efficiency
An impressive 95% AFUE rating (the measure of how efficiently a furnace utilizes fuel) means very little fuel is wasted. The rating means that the unit delivers 95 BTUs of heat for every 100 BTUs of gas used and may qualify for local and/or utility rebates. This is good for your budget, your comfort, and the environment.
- Two in One
One unit for both functions means only one unit to service and maintain for both space heating and hot water.
- Saves Energy
Domestic hot water is generated on demand so there is no need to continuously heat and store water in a tank. This saves on energy use and the associated energy costs.
- Saves Space
With one unit for heating both the air and the water in your home, instead of a separate furnace and hot water heater, less space needs to be dedicated to your HVAC equipment.
- Lower Installation Costs
The unit installs with 2″ and 3″ Schedule 40 PVC venting, which is easier to work with and lower cost than stainless steel. This means significant savings of both money and time.
- Improved Venting
The Combi offers greater flexibility for venting, which gives homeowners more flexible and versatile options for locating the equipment. The maximum vent length is 100 feet for 3″ and 50 feet for 2″. In addition, the unit is vented with room air which further saves money and time.
