"Problems w/ Brandnew Trane XR15 A/C and Heat Pump"
After a ton of research and recommendations from several people we wnet with a Trane. We also decided to go with the top of the line xr15 15 Seer unit with the variable speed fan. The installer came highly recommended and does residential as well as commercial work. After one day we noticed that the house wasn't cooling, I went to ther garage the air handler was blowing, checked the heat pump, nothing it had frozen up. A tech came out and checked and said something about the unit not being programmed correctly and reprogrammed it..The unit worked fine again for about 3 and a half weeks, then just the other day my wife heard the heat pump cutting on and off, got the tech back out and it turns out that the "board" needs to be replaced..The part is not in stock since the unit is so new so we have to wait about 4 days. Fortunately, the tech was able to do a bypass, so we still havee air. As far as I'm concerned the jury is still out on Trane, but I can tell you that these problems don't give me much faith in the product.
