Energy efficient Rheem furnaces
At GreenSavers, we only install the most energy efficient furnaces from Rheem. Most of our clients go with the Rheem Prestige Series 96% efficient gas furnace. We find that Rheem furnaces deliver high performance at a fair price, and relative to other manufacturers of high-efficiency furnaces, Rheem uses more robust components that last longer, saving you time and money.
FURNACE ENERGY EFFICIENCY RATING
Performance and comfort: The two-stage heating design operates primarily on low-speed, only temporarily switching to high during the coldest weather conditions in Portland and Bend. That means you get maximum energy efficiency from your furnace while minimizing temperature variations in your home.
Quiet operation: The patented heat exchanger design provides improved airflow, which reduces operating sound by 20%. The variable-speed ECM motor also contributes to a quiet, more energy efficient operation. It’s engineered to provide better humidity control while using less power.
Reliability: Every Rheem Prestige Series furnace comes standard with the PlusOne Ignition System. Exclusive to Rheem for heating and cooling equipment, the direct spark ignition (DSI) system is arguably the most reliable ignition system available for furnaces in Portland and Bend.
Protect your home: 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. This and one of the best warranties in the industry translate to fewer repair bills for your heating system.
Proper furnace sizing makes all the difference
If you install a furnace that is too large for your home, you will experience a condition called short-cycling when furnace constantly cycles on and off, over-heating your home then cooling down below the set temperature. On the other hand, a furnace that is too small for your home will not produce enough heat to keep you comfortable on the coldest days.

PROPERLY SIZED FURNACE WITH SMART THERMOSTAT
A furnace that frequently cycles on and off will require more maintenance and fail sooner than a furnace that is properly sized for your home. The reason has to do with increased wear and tear on the heat exchanger. By analogy, think of a car with only city miles and no highway miles. City miles involve a lot of starting and stopping, which wears on the engine. The over-sized furnace constantly starts and stops, accumulating wear and tear on its "engine," the heat exchanger. The result is that the over-sized furnace works harder and fails sooner.
