MIAT Commercial HVAC Equipment Competitive Time Study

Rheem Package Units – Quickest to Service

On June 4-6, 2019, in Canton, Michigan, MIAT College of Technology (MIAT) conducted a blind competitive time study on 7.5-ton Package Gas Electric units across four (4) commercial HVAC brands.  The study focused on tasks performed during industry standard service and preventative maintenance. 

At the conclusion of the time study, Unit 1 was identified as Rheem’s 7.5-Ton Package Gas Electric Unit.

Below are the results of the competitive time study, shown in minutes:

From the documented results noted above, Rheem has faster and easier serviceability over the other commercial HVAC brands tested, with a reduced service and maintenance time of 78–100 minutes.
