Brand Highlight: Ruud

July 19, 2016

Ruud – A Pioneer in Heating and Cooling

It’s difficult to imagine a time before on-demand heating and cooling systems allowed us to control temperature in a home, a business, or a huge property. A report published by EIA found that almost 100 million homes had air conditioning in 2011. Most of us take our intuitively-designed heating and cooling systems for granted – we expect our heating systems to reliably keep us warm during the winter, and depend on air conditioning to stay cool in the summer.

The reliability of our heating and cooling systems depends on finding a trustworthy and efficient brand. Known across the United States for their dependability, Ruud has been introducing innovative solutions to temperature control since the 1950’s, and still supplies the same high-quality service today.

The History of Ruud

Before the founder of Ruud products, Edwin Ruud, began implementing new and exciting concepts in America, many of the most affluent citizens still didn’t know the luxury of accessing hot, running water on demand. In the 1880’s, Ruud was working for an industrialist called George Westinghouse, and during that time that he began to build the very first automatic tank gas water heater. After a while, Ruud purchased the rights to his creation, prompting him to develop his own company around 1897 – a brand devoted to the development of water heating systems.

From the very beginning of his career, Ruud made an impact on the lifestyle of the average American that forever changed the way we think about water heating. A pioneer in his field, Ruud gradually expanded his innovation into the realm of cooling and heating systems during the 1950’s. Since then, the Ruud brand has evolved to become one of the most popular producers of heating, water heating, and cooling products in America – for both commercial and residential use. What’s more impressive is that the brand has maintained a constant grade of quality throughout the years, committing themselves to the creation of efficient and durable equipment.
