FORT SMITH, Ark. - Rheem’s 2008 Spring Contractor Financing Promotion offers Rheem and Ruud HVAC contractors a menu of business-building choices, and homeowners an opportunity to take advantage of financing and extended warranty programs.

The KwikComfort Financing Program offers homeowners no payments and deferred interest for 12 months on all sales funded by GE Credit. During this time, contractors pay a reduced fee of 3 percent instead of the normal 7 percent rate.

All consumer sales funded during this promotion period qualify for these special terms. Rheem will also continue to offer Protection Plus® extended warranty coverage as an additional incentive to homeowners looking to protect Rheem and Ruud HVAC equipment, water heating products, and home generators. The promotion runs through July 15.

“We are thrilled to once again offer this valuable program to our contractor customers as a way for them to leverage competitive financing rates to their homeowner customers,” said Frank Fodge, Rheem marketing operations manager.

“This is a great opportunity for contractors to receive valuable business-building tools and homeowners to receive additional and enhanced product financing and extended warranty options.”
