"Trane Wreck"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

I got a XL16i three years ago with 10 year warranty. a year later on a hot Friday night, in July, in Florida, the outside fan failed, and the compressor shut down completely from overheating. That's when I learned dealers don't carry Trane parts. Had to wait for the Trane office to open Monday for someone to get the part, then put it in. The new fan failed a year later and again shut down the system on a Saturday, in the summer, in Florida. Again I had to wait until Monday for someone to go to Trane, get the part, and put it in. Last year a few other things broke. This year the evaporator coil went, and the replacement doesn't cool the house off completely.



"Trane XL16i"

4.0 rating
Somewhat Satisfied

Installed Trane XL16i in July 2005. It heats and cools the house well and I notice a 15-20% reduction in my monthly bills over the prior systems. My only complaint is the dirty sock smell for about 2-3 days every spring when the cooling system begins to work on the return of hot weather. I never had this problem with a Ruud or GE system. The smell is so foul that I do not intend to ever purchase another Trane. I am baffled about why a supposedly quality system has such a problem. If ge and Ruud systems don't smell, why can't Trane design a system that doesn't smell? It is strong enough that it almost makes you want to vomit.
