The Trane XL16i Ultra Efficient Heat Pump offers eight models ranging in size from 2 tons to 5 tons using the Ozone 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 XL16i since R-410A can absorb and release heat more efficiently than R-22 refrigerant. The Trane XL16i efficiency ratings of up to 17.00 SEER and HSPF up to 9.2 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
Trane Inc. has a long history in the heating and cooling Industry, Trane was founded by a Wisconsin plumber named James Trane in 1885 who invented a low pressure heating system called the Trane Vapor Heating System. In 1910 James and his son Rueben started manufacturing operations as The Trane Company. Since then the company has been a leader in the heating industry and is now a division of Ingersoll Rand. Trane manufactures a full line of heating products, and has been making cooling products since 1931.
Four of the eight models of the Trane XL16i Heat Pump are available with ComfortLink II communicating technology that allows the different parts of your system to communicate with each other so your system automatically charges, configures and calibrates for maximum performance and efficiency. When the optional Telephone Access Module is added you can adjust settings and receive system updates by phone. Your Trane Dealer can also access the system by phone to interact with the system like never before offering real time data for diagnosis. The Trane XL16i has a two stage Climatuff scroll compressor for trimming the systems energy use. The two stages of heating and cooling adapt to the heating or cooling load to operate at maximum comfort and efficiency. This is like having two systems in one for maximum efficiency under any load condition.
