Trane XB13 Heat Pump Reviews

Very Unsatisfied

My 1 year old XR-15 has Dirty Sock Syndrome (DSS) verified by my installer. Trane will replace the coil if I pay for shipping and installation. Installer gave me 2 year labor waranty, but won't honor it due to large expense of installing. (4-5 hrs) Claims he did not plan on any repair that would consume this much time. So, he won't even order the coil, since I have only offered to pay $125. This has been going on since Feb. 11. Trane won't harness THEIR dealer. Their brochure is full of customer guarantees, but they don't really care.

I bought a heat pump xb13 and it is very expensive to run. I would never buy another one. The previous Carrier that was a 10 seer was twice as efficient to run. What a rip off!

Other XB13 Reviews

The Trane XB13 has received a mixture of positive and negative reviews around the web. While this system is a basic, builder-grade model, several contractors note the unit is built with a reliable compressor and easy-to-clean coils. Professionals also mention the XB13 is a good fit for a homeowner on a budget in a mild climate, but recommend a higher-efficiency unit for harsher climates.

Despite the positive reviews, some homeowners note the unit’s loud and occasionally inconsistent operation. Common issues include problems with small components malfunctioning and general troubleshooting errors. Shoppers on consumer forums, such as, like the price of the unit, but question whether or not the low price is worth the efficiency savings in the long run.
