The Trane XL15i Super Efficiency Heat Pump offers six models ranging in size from 1.5 tons to 5 tons using the environmental friendly R-410A Refrigerant which does not deplete the ozone layer. In addition to being environmentally friendly R-410A contributes to the energy efficiency of the Trane XL15i since R-410A can absorb and release heat more efficiently than R-22 refrigerant. The efficiency of R-410 also helps the compressor run cooler with less vibration and quieter too. In fact the XL15i is the quietest single stage model in the Trane line. The Trane XL15i efficiency ratings of up to 16.00 SEER and HSPF up to 9.0 make it eligible to carry the Energy Star Seal. This year being Energy Star rated is very important as a variety of rebate and grants come together to make installing energy efficient heating and cooling systems more affordable than ever before. This fall an Appliance Stimulus Package is coming out with Rebates of $50 – 200 available, the Weatherization Assistance Package is offering Grants of up to $6500 to those who qualify, and Income Tax Credits are also available
