Trane XL14i Air Conditioner Overview

The Trane XL14i air conditioner is a (discontinued) split-system central air conditioner with an efficiency rating of up to 15 SEER. It had a single-speed compressor, but could be matched with a variable speed blower (either a furnace or an air handler) to reduce noise and operate at higher efficiencies. Trane also marketed a heat pump under the XL14i series name, which had a heating efficiency of up to 9 HSPF.

The XL14i was available with either R-22 (commonly known as Freon) or R-410 (commonly known as Puron) refrigerant.

"Crap unit"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

First year it had two pin hole leak in the copper line, fix ran me $200 the 3 year my circuit breaker went out had to replace. The 4 year the screw that holds the lid with the fan part broke, then replace. It been good for two years now. The six year the compressor went out on me no more warranty. Looking about $ 1300 to replace. Don't have the money yet. Still trying to save up for new compressor. This unit was nothing but headache. And waste for money. Still paying for the pos unit. I thought Trane was the best but I'll never buy from them again

"Griffiths Energy Services installed Trane scam"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

We paid Griffiths Energy Services, Baltimore almost $6,000,00 to install a new Trane a/c system, 10/2007. 9/ 2011, we noticed our basement wet with black mold on walls. Griffths servicemen claim freon leaks. Problem continues as of 5/12, and we get billed $200+ every time we call Griffiths. Isn't it a scam!!

"Don't Buy a Trane"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

We purchased a Trane air conditioner model 4ttx4042a1000a. All was well till 6 years later we had the control panel go out (Trance xu9v). It cost $696.00 to replace. Less than 15 months later the same panel went out again for $743.00. After repeated pleas to the local company in Salt Lake and then with the regional office in Denver, Trane would not even look at my furnace to see what had caused this repeated and expensive failure. I was simply ignored and told that parts were warrantied for 12 months and that's that. Our previous furnace had no problems for 19 years. It was only replaced to accommodate a central air condition system. I am disappointed at the lack of interest and customer service Mr. Stacey Hieb the regional manager and the field representative Ethan Smith in Salt Lake. a company that cannot guarantee a part of almost $800.00 for longer than a year should be completely avoided.

"XL GOOD, BUT DON'T GET TOO BIG"

4.0 rating
Somewhat Satisfied

Got a XL 14 in 2009, which works well and is quiet. But don't get the unit too big. Replaced a 4 ton with a 5 ton unit for first floor of our two story home in Houston. It gets hot here, but this unit is too big. The house is too humid, and the high air velocity intrusive. If you have an up and downstairs unit, go with the 4 ton for the first floor. 5 tons are fine for a one story home as you have the additional heat from the attic.
