Trane XL16i Air Conditioner Review
The Trane XL16i central air conditioner offers a great bargain with quiet, efficient two-stage cooling. It maintains the industry's highest efficiency, with a SEER rating that approaches 18. This more than qualifies it for an Energy Star Seal, and it is therefore eligible for rebates, grants and income tax credits.
Just like the heat pump we covered in the Trane XL14i heat pump review last week, the XL16i comes in four different sizes, from 2.5 tons to 5 tons, each perfect for a different type of building. The patented two-stage Climatuff® compressors and variable-speed fan motor contribute to an extraordinarily quiet and efficient design, because the two-stage cooling essentially gives you two air conditioners in one. One quiet compressor runs for most purposes, and a heavy-duty compressor kicks in when it gets really hot. The two stage compressor really kicks in high marks on this Trane xl16i air conditioner review.
If you want reliability you cannot do better than Trane. They are an undisputed industry leader in heating and cooling technology. Though the corporation began in Wisconsin a century ago, it has grown to be a global player, and has now joined the Ingersoll Rand family. They have won countless awards and maintain HVAC systems in an array of prestigious buildings, from the Statue of Liberty to the Washington Monument, the Kremlin to the Australian Stock Exchange. Trane sells more than $8 billion worth of HVAC supplies a year.
