In order to help homeowners shop for furnaces and air conditioners, we developed our own proprietary algorithms which weigh a range of criteria and factors to provide an easy-to-compare grade (e.g. B-, A+, etc).
Warranty Grade: It can be difficult to know which brands and models offer the best warranty coverage, particularly because a lot of the key details are hidden in dense warranty documents filled with hard to understand legalese. Thankfully for you, we’ve carefully studied them and created this grading system to account for things like the length AND quality of their guarantee, coverage restrictions and more!
Overall Grade: This grade weighs key factors like efficiency, ENERGY STAR certification, comfort, noise level (for A/Cs), our warranty grade, and more.

Comparable Models by Rheem
Model Comparison by Features
Although the Prestige® Series RA20 is the brand's most impressive air conditioner, it shares many features with the mid-range Rheem Classic Plus Series RA17 unit. Both air conditioners are EcoNet™ capable and include the full suite of PlusOne™ technologies. However, the Prestige® Series RA20 uses more energy-efficient internal components, such as the Copeland Scroll™ variable-speed compressor, to outdo the Classic Plus Series RA17.
Model Comparison by Price
In terms of pricing, the Prestige® Series RA20 is the most expensive air conditioner available from Rheem. However, this investment comes the full range of premium components and innovative technologies that allow the unit to work as impressively as it does. Additionally, the RA20's ENERGY STAR-certified SEER rating of up to 20.5 guarantees more significant savings in the long-term.
Model Comparison by Tier
As the sole model in Rheem's premium Prestige® Series, the RA20 comes packed with just about everything that the brand has to offer. The Copeland Scroll™ variable-speed compressor is a top of the line part that makes a drastic improvement to the unit's efficiency when compared to a standard two-stage compressor. With comprehensive warranty coverage, it's difficult to imagine any Canadian homeowner being disappointed with this investment.
