Overview of the XR15

Traneís XR15 air conditioner is promoted by the manufacturer as a reliable and highly efficient unit that can help homeowners benefit from low cooling costs. Available in nine models, it has a SEER rating of 17, and qualifies as an Energy Star product when it is installed as part of a compatible HVAC system.

The XR15 is equipped with a Climatuff compressor that is surrounded by its own sound insulator. The Spine Fin outdoor coil, made of aluminum, allows for the highest among of heat transference and is designed for low air resistance. Not only is the outdoor coil resistant to corrosion, but so are the zinc-coated Weatherguard fasteners on the full-side louvered panels. These galvanized steel panels are part of the Quick-Sess cabinet, which provides complete protection of the coil. For additional assurance, the DuraTuff base pan is corrosion-resistant.

For an attractive appearance, theXR15 air conditioner is coated with a baked-on powder paint. For further indoor comfort, accessories including a humidifier, air cleaner and ventilator are available. Trane also offers remote access to the homeís climate control system, known as Nexia Home Intelligence.

"I love my trane"
It's all about the company doing the installation. Three Rivers Services installed my XR 15 variable speed system over two years ago. Have had no problems at all with the system. Research the service company before making a decision.

"Trane XR-15"
This unit makes a very loud rattling noise when the compressor cycles off. The noise is in the outside unit under the fan blades. The sea coast technician says 75 percent of units makes this noise. The noise is unacceptable to me.

Review:
"Trane Rolls"
New Trane XR15 installed two years ago with no issues. Chose Trane because of high quality, price, referrals from friends and research. Trane is the best out there, period. I must have talked with 6 installers who sold all brands and they all recommended Trane or American Standard. Consensus was that Trane is one of the only manufacturers that assemble the a/c compressors in-house using proprietary technology that no one else has.

"very cool"
Can't say enough good things about this air conditioner. The current heat wave is proving a real test(heat index over 110) and our Trane XR15 is doing a great job. Its quite, efficient and have never given us a problem. The best thing I can say is that we never think about it.

"XR15"
Replaced a 7 year old Carrier junk pile that died after only 7 years - No Warranty coverage, despite yearly maintenance. Replaced A/C system with Trane XR15, also upgraded thermostat to TR900 to do a better job of managing humidity(another Carrier flaw). Great system for close to 5 years. Quite and dependable - very impressed with Trane and the HVAC Company that did the install.

Review:
"Trane A/C"
Late last year had a new Trane A/C System installed. The XR15 has done a great job. Now that we are hitting the high humidity summer months I am working with my contractor to deal with higher than acceptable humidity in the house. Our prior system was undersized so it ran all the time, while inefficient it did have the benefit of removing allot of humdity. The new system, while sized correctly, does not run long eneough to remove the same amount of humdity. The contracor has been great, the came out and reset some of the Comfort-R settings. I also started running a dehudifier in the basement this week. We'll see how it goes. Been impressed with the installer and the Trane hardware.

"Great Choice"
My Trane is 6 years running - XR15 A/C. Nothing but compliments for how this system is made. The A/C is right outside my bedroom window, I can't hear it at night, which was a priority. The system is larger than by prevoous unit, both in tonnage and diminsions. Its been a troube free system and keeps my house cool w/o any noise/fuss. Also, had a great installer.
