Trane XE 1200 Heat Pump Reviews

"15 years still running a Trane XE 1200"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

Yes I would buy another one. Installed myself. I'm not a heat & air tech. Just an electrician, and I read the instructions, resized my ductwork also. Unit went down at 10 years. I replaced both capacitors, went down at 12 years. Replaced defrost switch (icing up) also condenser fan stop running pulled it out, tore apart, sanded shaft, oiled it good, and it's still running. I spent about $50.00 in 15 years. Not bad. Older unit I replaced was a Frigidaire 1.5 ton (1986 yr) ran a lot, did not heat or cool good when removed found duct sized way too small, it didn't have a chance, lasted for 13 yrs. (Question your installer make sure everything is right)

"Trane Stop"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Built home in 2000 and was convinced to install Trane high efficiency units by my vendors. As an Architect, I went high-end. I cannot tell you how many parts have been changed most under the warranty which is now long gone. Now, as I sit here writing, it's 108 degrees and my 5 ton unit compressor is dead. It's the second one. Have dumped more money into this one unit than all of my AC units in the past combined. You cannot even buy big parts for it they have locked the consumer out. Never spec a Trane.

We have a XE 1200 unit and we have not experienced any issues for the 14 years we have owned it.

3.0 rating

Purchased (2) xe 1200 4 ton units with variable speed air handler in May and June 2001. The compressor just went out on one of the units this week. I'm disappointed since I expected better performance from a Trane based on their reputation. I didn't realize the compressor was on the blink until we got our Jan electric bill. What a surprise. The unit was not shutting off and the heat strips we're on all the time. Not sure whether I'll replace this unit with another Trane but I am looking at other brands with a better warranty. I think it should have lasted more than 7 years especially given the price of the unit.
