Overview of the 2TTA
The Trane 2TTA is a discontinued split-system, condensing air conditioning unit. This series, for which manufacturing information exists as late as 2010, features six units ranging from 2.5- to 6-ton capacity that can reach up to 10 SEER. These models use R-22 refrigerant, which is no longer allowed by the Environmental Protection Agency in new units.
The 2TTA was designed with easy maintenance in mind, as well as durability and simple diagnostics. The unit's gray cabinet features a corrosion-resistant finish and a weatherproofed base for unit protection. The easily accessible cabinet and single-side service and refrigerant connections are geared toward keep maintenance calls simple.
Additional components of the 2TTA include the company’s Climatuff compressor with internal high and low pressure and temperature protection, aluminum fin coil, WeatherGuard fasteners, a liquid line filter-drier, and multi-use liquid and suction line service valves.

Bought a Trane AC unit in 2000. In 2007 had to replace the outside fan unit...ugh. In 2008 the AC unit inside was leaking. For the last 8 years, like clock work every summer, I've had to put more Freon in the unit. R22 has been really going up in price. Won't buy another Trane. Way overpriced.

"Worst AC ever and no recourse"
Bought the unit in 2013 and the repair people have been at our house 16 times. Trane will not stand by their product and I see a class action lawsuit coming in the future. Don't buy one!

"I know how to stop a Trane"
Just 12 months out of warranty, compressor goes out; have had the unit serviced/cleaned 2x year for the entire 6 years. I would expect that from a cheap piece of equipment, but surprised given the reputation for "quality". All I can say is I will never own another one.
Other 2TTA Reviews
Reviews around the web are minimal for the 2TTA. Among them, a contractor on hvac-talk.com shares with his peers a photo of a recent 2TTA installation. Along with the photograph he reveals that the installation of these four units took more time to install than many other comparable units, but he was pleased with the end results. Other posts on this forum also refer the unit in commercial applications, one reason there seems to be a lack of additional reviews.
However, Trane as an HVAC dealer has several reviews from both happy and dissatisfied customers. Frequent complaints on sites such as central-air-conditioner-and-refrigeration.com include problems with a lack of quality in the equipment, supported by customer tales of frequently breaking components and unit failures. Other owners report years of hassle-free operation with a Trane system. Hvacreviews.net also note high-efficiency, reasonable prices, and solid warranty coverage as incentives to choosing a Trane unit.
