Ruud Gas Furnace Reviews | Consumer Ratings

Ruud Gas Furnace Reviews | Consumer RatingsRuud has nearly the same gas furnace product line-up as Rheem simply because Rheem is the parent company for Ruud. The furnaces are nearly the same in build and color and the only real difference is the name on the unit and the model numbers.

I am sure we could find design differences between the but taking a cursory comparative look between the two we observe no differences in design of their gas furnaces. I know both of Rheems and Ruuds Websites are slow, sometimes dysfunctional, and cumbersome to navigate even with a high speed internet connection. Aside from that the two companies produce quality products.

Ruud was the builders grade version for Rheem for many years and in fact may still serve the function however Ruud does offer higher end gas furnaces in their gas furnace product line-up just as Rheem does. The bonus for the consumer is that parts are interchangeable so if you have both a Rheem and a Ruud dealer in your area and one does not have the part you could go to the other for the specific part.

That is if you need a part that is proprietary between the two gas furnaces.

    I have had my unit installed for almost 1 year now and it has worked great. I bought it while moving into a new house so I could not compare to the old one for efficiency but this is quite and works as advertised.
