That’s why we design every new product with the Rheem 360°+1 philosophy. We evaluate every detail from top to bottom, inside and out, and everything in between. We consider the work that goes into installing and servicing our products as well as how we can deliver the best homeowner experience... And then we take it further. That’s 360°+1.

360° Performance

Whether you speak EFs or SEERs, with every product we design and redesign we set out to improve efficiency to lower operating costs and energy consumption. Performance is not just about the numbers, so we balance these improvements with continuing to include components and design styles that make our products reliable and durable so you can offer worry-free comfort for your customers for years to come. That’s 360° Performance… and then some.

360° Installability

We’re adding a multitude of features to our product line up—some you’d expect, others you wouldn’t. These innovations make installation faster, easier and more cost-effective. In fact, we think this aspect of our products is so important, we coined a new term for it: Installability™

360°+1 means defining and developing tankless water heating solutions for multiple applications, such as domestic water heating and hydronic home heating, the integration of technologies and product harmonies.

360° Integration

At Rheem, we see the power of air and water integration. We’re experts at designing innovative ways to transfer heat. For example, our new Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater uses the power of air to heat water more efficiently.

Rheem integration also means bringing together your customers’ Rheem air and water systems to work together seamlessly and provide higher efficiencies. With our exclusive EcoNet™ technology your customers can save now, and continue to save for years to come with future integration with other Rheem appliances, such as heating and cooling systems, water heaters, pool and spa heaters, and remote access tools. EcoNet™ is also future-compatible with home automation, energy management and demand response systems.

What 360°+1 means to me:
I see 360°+1 as a panoramic view in both directions: One as a design engineer from the design and development aspect incorporating everyone’s strengths and knowledge, and another from the product aspect to integrate customers and installers needs and requirements. Visibility through all aspects will bring synergy to the company and to the customer.
