Modulating Furnace Thermostat
RHC-TST550CMMS
The Rheem Prestige Series™ 90 Plus High Efficiency line of upflow gas furnaces are designed for utility rooms, closets, or alcoves. Because of the lowprofile 34 inch height, the RGFE- model can be used vertically to satisfy
most applications that traditionally call for a horizontal furnace.
The design is certified by CSA.
Features
■ The Comfort Control 2 System™ provides over 28 on-board diagnostics
and fault history codes by detecting system and electrical problems. “Call
for Service” alert notification is sent to the thermostat to alert the homeowner of required service.
■ Serial Communication Enhanced – When installed with a Serial Communicating Condensing Unit and user interface control (RHC-TST550CMMS)
500 Series thermostat this unit offers 4 or 2 wire installation, auto-configuration, and diagnostic messaging with full communicating capability.
■ Heat exchanger is constructed of all stainless steel for maximum corrosion resistance and thermal fatigue reliability.
■ Modulating Function: when used with a modulating or communicating
thermostat, modulation rate between 40% and 100% of total capacity.
■ Two-stage Function: when used with a two-stage thermostat, furnace
operates at 40% on first stage, and stages up to 65%, then 100% for second stage.
■ Multistage Function: when used with a single-stage thermostat, furnace
functions as a three stage furnace operating at 40%, 65% and 100% of
total capacity.
■ Reduced firing rates, electrically efficient ECM2+ motor, and solid doors
provide the ultimate in quiet operation.
■ Low speed constant fan.
■ Constant temperature rise for superior comfort.
■ Seven segment LED for system diagnostics.
■ Diagnostic history for troubleshooting.
■ Two-speed induced draft motor.
■ Direct spark ignition with remote sense.
■ Optional indoor or outdoor combustion air.
A variety of cooling coils and plenums designed to use with the Prestige
Series™ 90 Plus gas furnaces are available as optional accessories.
✝A.F.U.E. (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) calculated in accordance with Department of Energy test
procedures.
FEATURES & BENEFITS OF THE COMFORT CONTROL2 SYSTEM ™
■
The Rheem Dual 7-Segment LED Display easily shows system operating status codes and diagnostic codes.
■ The Status Indication
System Diagnostics feature
thermostat communication
capability and built-in diagnostics. The thermostat communication capability and
alerts the homeowner to any

■
The fault recall feature will allow for the last six fault-codes
to be displayed, and will retain these codes even if power
failure occurs.
■ In order to save time and money, replacement automotive
style fuses can be utilized instead of replacing the entire
control board.

available – kit must be purchased
NOTE: High altitude kits do NOT include additional burner orifices. If
a burner orifice change is necessary, they must be ordered
through PROSTOCK®. See Installation Instructions for
more information.
CAUTION: Always follow National Fuel Gas Code (NFGC) guidelines
when converting furnaces for high altitudes.
For all installations above 2000 ft. the burner orifice size needs to be
recalculated and verified at elevations above 2000 ft. A burner
orifice change may still be required. See Installation Instructions
for more information.
Manifold gas pressure reduction methods to adjust for altitude may
NOT be used on these models. The only method permitted on
modulating furnace models is to recalculate the burner orifice size.
See Installation Instructions for more information.
