Gemaire has made a significant investment in inventorying Rheem commercial products in multiple sizes including:

  • Rheem Renaissance™ package units. 3 to 12.5 tons, 1-phase and 3-phase, 208/230 and 460 volt options. An industry-standard footprint eliminates the need for a curb adapter, expedites installation time and reduces job costs.
  • Rheem Legacy package units. 3 to 6 and 12.5 to 25 tons, 1-phase and 3-phase, 208/230 and 460 Volt options.
  • Rheem split systems. 6.5 and 7.5 tons and 10 to 20 tons, 3-phase, 208/230 and 460 Volt electrical options. Includes dual condenser split systems. 3-phase, 208/230 condensers in 3 to 5 tons capacities are also available.
  • In addition to HVAC equipment, Gemaire stocks IAQ products, tools, parts, accessories, fans, grilles, registers and diffusers for commercial applications.

“The Gemaire Project Desk Team provides support for replacement, plan and spec and design-build projects including performing plan takeoffs and providing submittal documents and bid proposals,” stated Al Rainey, Gemaire Director of Commercial Sales. “Technical support, training and swift warranty processing round out the services provided for commercial contractors.”

Doing business with Gemaire is easy. Contractors can place their orders online, by phone or at a Gemaire sales center with most products being delivered the same day or by the next day. The Contractor Assist Mobile App provides ready access to product data, inventory, warranty, easy to use tools, and matchup needs while on the go. It will easily pair with accounts for handy access to pricing and ordering. “GemPay” is available for online billing and payments services.

Gemaire’s focus is to support residential and commercial HVAC contractors in their continued effort to keep America cool. With the new commercial distribution hub, now more than ever they are in a position to deliver on this promise.

Gemaire Distributors was founded over 50 years ago in Boca Raton as a distributor of Rheem HVAC products with 1 location and 4 employees. With the help of their partner, Rheem Manufacturing in Fort Smith, Arkansas, it has grown from that small company to what Gemaire Group is today…North America’s largest Rheem Distributor, with over 800 employees in 90+ locations from coast-to-coast. Gemaire operates 29 sales centers in Florida. Over the years, Gemaire has also grown from being primarily an equipment Distributor to now being a supplier of most all HVAC related products, parts and supplies.

Gemaire’s mission is to be the preferred partner of the HVAC professional. Their goal is to deliver premier services, programs, and innovative tools to enable the best contractors in the HVAC industry.
