The Trane XT90 is a discontinued single-stage gas furnace offering up to 92.1 percent AFUE. The ten models in this series offers capacities between 2 and 5 tons; the units are available in upflow, downflow and horizontal configurations. All units are factory tested before shipment and meet Energy Star standards for efficiency.
The XT90 features a 4-speed, high-efficiency motor with an insulated blower door and steel cabinet to help keep operational noises at a minimum. An automotive-grade gasket and insulated blower motor compartment also contribute to low air sound and infiltration.
Additional components of the series include an aluminized heat exchanger, secondary heat exchanger, self-diagnostic system, hot surface igniter, multiport in-shot burners and direct vent for a fresh air option. Units are also equipped with an air cleaner and humidifier leads.
This was a replacement furnace in my office building, after a careless manager destroyed the first one though over-use. This is industrially designed, very rugged, and runs beautifully. My only fault with it was the price – but after using it for the better part of a year and through some of the coldest winter weather I’ve had here I’m satisfied that it was worth it. I haven’t yet had to repair it, and it runs day and night without fault. Ours is a large manufacturing facility, and this furnace heats the offices and sales floor. It’s been a great product to have, and I’d recommend this brand to anyone who needs high-performance heating.
