Weatherking Air Conditioners

Reviews by Air Conditioner Series

WLKB

Packaged Air Conditioners

WeatherKing packaged air conditioners are AHRI-certified and available with efficiency ratings of 13 and 14 SEER. Upon the consumer’s request, these units can be factory- or field-installed for optional electric heat. Capacities for these units range from 2 to 5 tons.

Designed for easy maintenance and repair, WeatherKing air conditioners are equipped with metal rails under the unit’s base to allow for adequate air circulation, protection from ground moisture and, therefore, a decreased risk for mildew growth. A top cover provides easy access to a removable blower housing and motor, as well as complete access to the coils for simple cleaning. The unit’s sharp edges are dulled by the powder-coated paint system, and the outdoor coil is protected from weather damage by a full-louver panel. For repair needs, technicians can more easily troubleshoot thanks to the number- and color-coded wiring and wiring diagram.

 [ WEATHERKING Series : Select 10 ]

Care and Maintenance of WeatherKing Air Conditioners

Homeowners should reference the user manual for directions for unit care, although annual professional maintenance is generally recommended.

Warranty

Product registration is required to receive full warranty benefits, but with normal use and regular service, a 10-year conditional warranty on parts is available. The compressor comes with a 5- to 10-year warranty, depending on the unit’s application.

    Frown RUUD vs. Weather King...RIPOFF??

    This is my 1st post on the fourm and need your advice/input on an a/c issue.

    I'm currently having a home built that is 3 weeks away from completion. It's a 2500 sq ft, 2 story home that will have two 13 seer units. The R rating for the attic insulation is 30, and I've added radiant barrier to the underside of the roof in the attic. The builder stated in the contract that the home (as well as all of the other homes in the subdivision) will get 13 seer RUUD units. Today they installed the a/c units and put 2 Weather King systems instead of RUUD.
    I searched online for info. on weather king but all I could find is that they're made by Rheem, which also makes RUUD.

    My question is whether you guys think I'm getting ripped off by getting weather king units?
    How do the 2 compare in terms of quality, reliability, warranty, etc.?

    I'm going to complain to the builder and demand that they replace the 2 units with RUUD units but am afraid they'll come back and say that weather king is technically considered a RUUD system being how they're both built by Rheem...?

    Also, I walked around to several of the other houses in the subdivision and found that some have weather king units, and some have RUUD units; HOWEVER, the RUUD units look identical to the weather king units...the only difference is that they seem to be placing a plastic RUUD emblems/plaques over the space where the weather king sticker should be found...? Is this a deceptive practice utilized by some builders..?

    I would appreciate any help you guys can offer on the ordeal.

    This is a pic I took of the house next to mine that also got a Weather King unit instead of a RUUD. As I mentioned, the few RUUD systems in the subdivision look identical to this one, except they have a RUDD cover over the weather king sticker you see in the photo.

    That unit seems to be a bit close to the wall, don't ya think.
    Ask your installer to leave a little room from the wall.

    The WeatherKing units are identical to the bottom-of-the-line Rheem and Ruud units. The warranties are the same also.

    Wouldnt make too big of a deal about it. If you demand they rip out the Weatherking units, chances are they are going to throw them in the truck and drive around the corner to put a Ruud sticker on it. Same unit, same packaging, everything is the same, except at the supply house, if you order a Rheem or Ruud, they take a Weatherking off the shelf and slap a different sticker on it. This is just on the lower end stuff. So if its a 13 seer unit, this is probably the case.

    Thanks for the responses guys.
    So then there's really no difference between a Weather King 13 seer and Ruud 13 seer? No difference whatsoever in terms of price? quality? reliability etc? If that's the case, why then the effort on behalf of the builder to give the impression that each house will come with a Ruud when they're in fact installing weather kings if they're identical units?

    I guess what I'm bothered by is that the builder might be charging me, assuming a Ruud 13 seer costs somewhat more than a 13 seer Weather king, for a Ruud yet they're paying the distributor less for the weatherking and pocketing the difference.

    did someone spill their thread seal all over the LL service caps? Scrubs-proper install (the guys were trying to tell you what is wrong-too close to wall) is way more important then anything you can see. Different branding is just a way the manufacturers can have more dealers in small areas. One sells WK, one sells Ruud, one sells Rheem. On a basic 13 seer sys, no major diff's. Trane/American Standard. Carrier/Bryant--they all do it.

    Did you get a model #?

    They boys are right, the cubes are the same under all 3 brands. Rheem & Ruud get a deluxe model, they are rectangular. But if you were promised a Rheem or Ruud with no model # and got one with a WeatherKing sticker, no biggie. I have Rheem plates that go right over the King sticker.

    Twilli says if the dealer is a Rheem/Ruud top contractor they are allowed to label those units Rheem. There are two holes in the WK tag that it pushes into.

    WeatherKings are great units, same as RUUD. Your problem would be the unit being to close to the outside wall of your house. clearance is necessary so that your condenser can do it's job.

    Thanks for all the valuable input guys. I went by the house today and measured the distance from the 2 units from the wall and its about 20 inches...is this enough?
    The unit in the picture I posted is from the house next to mine, I'll post some pics of my units tomorrow.

    Yes.....20" is adequate clearance.
    Stop worrying and enjoy your new home and A/C equipment.

    As Twilli said, if you feel where the crowns are, you will notice there are two holes behind them. To make it a Ruud, poke those holes out of the WK label and snap the Ruud label on it.

The WeatherKing brand of HVAC systems began in Florida in 1963. Since 1988, WeatherKing has belonged to Rheem Manufacturing, a company well known for their HVAC systems and water heaters.

Rheem also produces HVAC equipment under the brand name Ruud. WeatherKing systems are generally considered equivalent to the low-end Ruud systems.

Today, WeatherKing offers heating and cooling systems including air conditioners, gas furnaces, and heat pumps. They aim to provide high-quality equipment that allow homeowners to control the comfort of their “castle.”

WeatherKing produces several different gas furnace models. These include upflow, downflow, and multi-position designs. The efficiency of their gas furnaces ranges from 80-96% AFUE.

For instance, WeatherKing’s High Efficiency Multi-Position gas furnace offers an efficiency of up to 95% AFUE. It has two-stage operation, which allows it to run at a lower, more efficient capacity during milder weather.

Additionally, it has a direct-spark ignition system for dependability, and it incorporates the “industry’s first blocked drain sensor.” This sensor can detect when a drain is blocked and shut down the furnace to prevent possible water damage.

The WeatherKing High Efficiency Multi-Position gas furnace is also designed for quieter operation. Its newly patented heat exchanger decreases noise by up to 20%, thanks to improved airflow.

On the cooling side, WeatherKing produces four models of residential split-system air conditioners. These range in efficiency from 13 SEER to 16 SEER. Their 16 SEER air conditioner, the WA16, offers higher efficiency along with durable construction and quiet operation. It comes with a five year limited parts warranty.

For both heating and cooling, WeatherKing produces one model of heat pump. It’s a 14 SEER heat pump with copper coils and aluminum fins. The WeatherKing heat pump is designed for quieter operation thanks to its grille design and its elevated coils.

The louvered steel cabinet adds to its durable construction, while the wrap-around outdoor coil increases airflow and improves efficiency.
