    Any Experience with Ruud HVAC Systems?

    Do any of you have any experience with Ruud heating and air conditioning units? Our central air and furnace have been on their last legs for some time, and last weekend's heat wave here looks like it pushed the AC unit over the edge. LOML and I decided it's time to replace both.

    The HVAC guy we like (and trust) has recommended a Ruud system (made by Rheem). Any horror stories about Ruud?

    Vaughn.....I did a search at that other site. One guy who's an HVAC technician bought a RUUD to replace his personal A/C. I can't remember the guy's name but he's known for enjoying cleaning his shop.

    Many thanks, Ken. In my various searches, I've not seen any negative stuff about the brand.

    I have had a Ruud for almost three years now and it just works it's little heart out. Never complains. And living where we do the AC must run 300 days a year or better

    Vaughn,

    That last heat wave had over Labor Day blew my 5 ton condensor had to have it replaced. Went with a Lennox. I about fell over when I got the price.

    Got one in our basement. They put it in last December when we chucked our old dying furnace. Nothing fancy, but it does the job, and the price was quite nice.

    Now, to be sure, this was just the furnace - we did not replace the A/C or condenser coils. Cooling is probably a bit more of a concern for you folks than heating.

    Whatever you get, try to get the highest SEER you can afford. More energy efficient. I personally will not get a unit with a SEER less than 14.

    Vaughn, a good friend of mine owns a HVAC company in West Texas. I aksed him what he thought the best was a few years ago. His answer? Ruud... so I bought one and never regretted it. FWIW
