We Build Quality In So You Can Get Reliability Out

You want equipment you can depend on. So we work passionately at developing products that can stand the test of time. With a company-wide commitment to excellence, robust production processes and relentless support of the installers who turn great equipment into reliable comfort systems, we are always seeking to make the very best Ruud products possible.

Extraordinary Commitment

Working hard every day to be extraordinary is the fuel of reliability. And we’re never satisfied—from R&D to the factory floor and beyond, we are committed to the pursuit of unrivaled, unquestionable excellence.

  • Putting First Things First – We start each week focused on what matters most—delivering reliable products. So company leadership begins every Monday morning with a Quality Forum, reviewing issues from every angle and challenging our teams to further advance product reliability.
  • Pushing the Limits – Our proprietary testing facility goes beyond industry requirements to create extreme scenarios for challenging our heating and cooling products to perform, including:
    • Thousands of hours of extreme environmental testing, subjecting our products to salt spray, rain, freezing rain, snow and temperatures between -20° and 130°F
    • Field testing of equipment all over the world so we know it performs in every environment
    • Vibration testing to ensure our packaging protects equipment during transport

Robust Process

Ruud products earn the trust of contractors everywhere, because they know that Ruud products are high quality, reliable and durable—and they deliver day after day.

  • Right, From the Start – Because pros are the ones working with our equipment in the toughest environments day in and day out, we work closely with contractors when designing new products. This unique partnership and robust development process means we build it right and we incorporate predictive quality so you know it will perform.
  • Leaving Nothing to Chance – Our proprietary, total quality assurance system means every component and each piece of equipment is 100% traceable, tested and must perform or it cannot leave our doors—it’s that simple.
    • Automated data acquisition systems deliver precision measurements during testing
    • Dedicated testing facilities ensure equipment meets optimized performance standards
  • Continuous Improvement – We’ve invested $100 million and counting in our state-of-the-art production facilities to maintain our position as a leader in the industry.

Pros Trust Ruud

Ruud products earn the trust of contractors everywhere, because they know that Ruud products are high quality, reliable and durable—and they deliver day after day.

  • Building Trust – 94% of contractors say products we manufacture are high quality.1
  • Training Matters – Because proper installation is such a key factor of reliability, we invest in exclusive contractor training resources, like our state-of-the-art Innovation Learning Centers, to ensure we lead the way—today and tomorrow.
