The contest runs until April 30 and contractors can enter up to once per day. The five Rheem and five Ruud winners will be announced in May.

Rheem partnered with DuSold Designs of Lewisville, Texas, to create the gas furnaces.

“We wanted to find a fun way to drive excitement for Rheem’s upcoming 90 percent-plus furnace platform, and these jaw-dropping furnaces do just that,” said Terry Stern, product manager, residential heating products, Rheem. “The contest winners will be able to display the furnaces in their offices as show pieces.”

DuSold is a custom car and bike builder, and this is their first time working with HVAC equipment.

“When Rheem approached us about taking our expertise in designing custom cars and bikes and applying it to furnaces, I was intrigued,” said Mike DuSold, owner and artist, DuSold Designs. “The furnaces that we created are unlike any other furnace you’ll ever see. The design concepts are stunning, and we’re thrilled that we had the opportunity to develop these unique units.”
