The Trane XR13 High Efficiency Heat Pump is offered 14 models ranging in size from 1.5 tons to 5 tons with cooling capacities from 18,000 to 60,000 BTUH. Seven of the models of the XR14 use R-22 Refrigerant and seven use the newer R-410A Refrigerant which is environmentally friendly and does not deplete the ozone layer. In addition to being safe for the environment R-410A contributes to the energy efficiency of the Trane XR13 because 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. The Trane XR13 has efficiency ratings of up to 14.00 SEER and HSPF up to 8.5. When purchasing a new heat pump buying one that uses R-410 instead of R-22 is highly desirable due to a planned phase out of R-22, which will result in decreased availability and higher costs.
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 & cooling 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.
The Trane XR13Heat Pump is contained in a fully louvered 22-gauge galvanized steel cabinet that has been powder coated to ensure protection against the elements and possible damage from even the neighborhood kids. There is a single removable panel that allows full access to service the unit’s refrigeration and electrical controls, the fan is replaceable from the top of the unit. When refrigeration components require maintenance no brazing is required, Trane uses Roto-Lock fittings to join refrigeration components. The Trane XR-13 uses a Trane Climatuff Compressor and SpineFin Coil designed by Trane engineers for maximum efficiency and a long service life to pump the heat in and out of your home. The entire package is mounted on top of the DuraTuff corrosion proof base pan. The Trane XR13 Heat Pump can heat and cool with sound levels as low as 75dB. When the Trane XR13 is matched to interior components from Trane such as air handlers and in colder climates gas furnaces higher performance for the unit can be realized. The Trane XR13 comes with a 10-Year Parts Warranty on the compressor, coil and internal parts with optional extended warranties that cover labor. If a complete system is installed the 10-Year Warranty can be extended to the indoor components as well.
