Trane’s XR15 is a discontinued air conditioner which was 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 had a SEER rating of up to 17, and qualified as an Energy Star product when installed as part of a compatible HVAC system.
The XR15 was equipped with a Climatuff compressor that was surrounded by its own sound insulator. The Spine Fin outdoor coil, made of aluminum, provided increased heat transference and was designed for low air resistance. Not only was the outdoor coil resistant to corrosion, but so were the zinc-coated Weatherguard fasteners on the full-side louvered panels. These galvanized steel panels were part of the Quick-Sess cabinet, which provided complete protection of the coil. For additional assurance, the DuraTuff base pan was corrosion-resistant.
For an attractive appearance, theXR15 air conditioner was coated with a baked-on powder paint. For further indoor comfort, accessories including a humidifier, air cleaner and ventilator were available. Trane also offered remote access to the home’s climate control system through your laptop, tablet, or smart phone with Nexia Home Intelligence.
I got me a Trane in 2014. It stop running on 07/09/15. A bad valve, 4 to 5 days to get the part and another 1 day to fix, maybe. Spent lots of money for can't stop a Trane; the repairman has been here 4 times in 1 year.
"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.
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.

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.
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.
When it comes to the XR15, many homeowners and HVAC dealers posting on other online discussion forums seem to agree that it has a nice appearance and effectively cools the home while lowering cooling costs. Among the few complaints posted on forums such as hvac-talk.com are issues with the unit’s noisy operation. In addition, some online reviews include comments indicating it is an overly high-priced unit when compared to others that offer similar results.
Trane provides a 10-year warranty on the XR15’s compressor, outdoor coil and internal functioning parts. However, the product must be registered within 60 days of installation in order for the warranty to be activated. Failure to register the air conditioner in the 60-day period will result in the application of the base limited warranty.
