What Is an Air Handler?

Before we dive in, let's understand what an air handler is. It's a type of heating and cooling equipment that uses a fan and coil to regulate room temperature. The unit moves air through a coil filled with the correct refrigerant requirements, which in turn allows the air handler to heat the air using internal strips or cooling it with refrigerant. Then, the circulated air passes throughout your home, ensuring a comfortable temperature.

Okay, let's dive in!

Maximizing Comfort: The Key Benefits of the Rheem Endeavor RHMVZ

When buying a new HVAC system, it's important to think about the pros and cons. Mostly because buying an HVAC system is a significant investment. Much like other high-end HVAC products, the RHMVZ has many benefits. This includes, but is not limited to, quiet operation, durability, and a compact design.

Quiet Operation

This HVAC system has a low noise level, making it perfect for those who value peace of mind performance while ensuring dependable comfort. This system had less noise and vibration, providing a more enjoyable environment. In fact, Rheem air handler's noise level rating is between 65 and 70 decibels. You can compare that to the noise of a normal conversation or background noise on a TV.

Additionally, the variable speed technology maintains a consistent temperature without loud sound, like traditional heating and cooling systems. Making this unit perfect for homeowners who value peace and quiet in and around their homes.

Compact Design & Durability

What Features Make the Rheem Endeavor RHMVZ Air Handler Stand Out?

Variable Speed Constant ECM Motor

As the pressure in your HVAC system goes up, the ECM motor adjusts to maintain airflow in your home. With the help of a variable speed constant CFM motor maintains consistent airflow regardless of static pressure in the HVAC system.

What Is a Variable Speed Constant CFM Motor?

A variable-speed ECM motor saves energy and adjusts its speed based on whether your HVAC system needs heating or cooling. According to the Department of Energy, energy-efficient HVAC equipment and products can benefit homeowners in many ways, such as:

  • Reliability of electric grids
  • Benefits the community
  • Health benefits
  • Improving the environment

This helps homeowners reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, while saving time and energy. On top of that, a high energy efficiency HVAC system will save you money on monthly energy bills.

EcoNet Capabilities

The EcoNet smart thermostat gives homeowners control, energy efficiency, and better home security. The RHMVZ also comes with the latest sensor technology and system alerts for residential HVAC systems. Purchasing the EcoNet with your new HVAC system gives homeowners several other benefits, such as:

  • Air Filter Monitoring- Regularly changing the air filter is a simple method to maintain the smooth operation of your HVAC system. With EcoNet's reminder function, you can avoid the concern of forgetting this crucial HVAC maintenance duty.
  • Auto Changeover- This smart thermostat provides homeowners with ultimate convenience and peace of mind. It can automatically switch between heating and cooling, ensuring your home is always at the perfect temperature.
  • Intergraded Air & Water- If you own a Rheem HVAC system and water heater, did you know the EcoNet smart thermostat can control both appliances? This feature is especially helpful for simplifying your home automation and lowering the number of devices you use.

Bonus Feature: PlusOne Diagnostics & Bluetooth Connectivity

The Rheem RHMVZ has improved connectivity with Rheem Contractor and EcoNet apps. It also features built-in technology for simple setup, monitoring, troubleshooting, and repairing of the unit.

The Rheem RHMVZ Air Handler: Suitable for most homeowners

While this unit is one of the top air handlers in the HVAC market, it also has a high price point. Nevertheless, depending on your lifestyle, comfort preferences, and how long you plan to stay in your home will determine if the RHMVZ Air Handler is right for you.

The Perfect Match

If you're planning to stay in your home for a while, it's a good idea to invest in comfort and efficiency. Today's air handlers provide better temperature control, which delivers warm air and cool air more effectively. They run quietly and adjust to provide the right amount of heating. Making this unit perfect for someone who values comfort, quiet operation, and energy efficiency.

Not a Perfect Match

On the other hand, this unit wouldn't be a good fit for a homeowner who is planning on moving soon, typically within the next 3 to 5 years. Additionally, this HVAC system wouldn't be practical for renters or landlords. With its high price point, it doesn't make much sense for a landlord to invest in it. Especially when you’ll have multiple tenets throughout its lifespan.
