Recommended Ruud Central Air Conditioners 2012

The Ruud line of recommended models is the Ruud Ultra Series 16 SEER RRRL Series which is a Gas Electric package. This is known to be one of the most efficient gas packs that are available in the market. It has a 16 SEER air conditioning performance.  The efficiency of this unit makes the operating costs lower by as much as 30%. This is when it replaces a gas packaged unit that has been in use for around 10 years. This unit is most suited for light commercial installation or for residential purpose. It is a 5 Ton Package Gas Electric air conditioner and uses R-410A Refrigerant.


A consumer had complained in a review that he had purchased a home with a Ruud unit . The unit was under warranty for five years and after around two months of the warranty expiring had detected very small leaks in the compressor and in evaporator coils after 5 years. Investigating further it was found out that after 5 years it was not worth repairing the unit and as against the lifespan of a normal central air conditioning unit that lasts for 10 years he listed this unit as being pathetic. He further recommends that people read more reviews prior to purchasing.

The Ruud central air conditioning unit comes under a 5 year limited warranty period and the pricing for a 3 ton Ruud Ultra Series RRRL SERIES Package Gas and Electric costs around $2,500.
