More than 100 years ago, Edwin Ruud, a Norwegian mechanical engineer, came to America and developed the first successful automatic water heater. This early success marked the beginning of a tradition of innovation and value that ultimately led to the introduction of Ruud heating and air conditioning equipment in the 1950s.
Since then, Ruud has grown into one of North America’s largest manufacturers of quality heating, cooing and water heating products for residential and light commercial use.
Over the years, Ruud’s products have changed and improved significantly as new design techniques and better manufacturing technologies emerged.
Today, Ruud’s highly trained workers produce state-of-the-art equipment and share a longstanding commitment to customer service and to manufacturing the most reliable, long-lasting, efficient equipment available.
Ruud is an industry leader for heating, cooling and water heating solutions that meet and exceed rigorous industry standards for quality and reliability. Every phase of the manufacturing, testing and third-party certification process is designed to ensure that Ruud’s products meet the highest quality standards.
