Equipment of the Month for May 2012 – The Trane XL20i Air Conditioner

For this weeks blog post we decided to start a new series of posts, the “Equipment of the Month”.  We will be introducing only the equipment we install most often and our customers have only the best experience with.

And since summer is heading our way we want to start our equipment blog with an air conditioning unit, the Trane XL20i.

TRANE high efficiency heat pumpThis air conditioner is designed for highest efficiency and exists in variants from 24,000 BTUH to 60,000 BTUH what make it suitable for a wide variety of residential and commercial applications.  Here some of the highlights of the XL20i series of air conditioners, taken right from the Trane brochure:

  • Efficient performance
    The XL20i’s SEER rating of up to 20.00 is among the highest energy efficiency rating of any air conditioner available today. The XL20i has two compressors: one for milder weather and a second larger compressor for those extremely hot days. It’s like having two units in one.
    SEER stands for Seasonal energy efficiency ratio and is the rating of a unit’s cooling output in Btu during a typical cooling-season divided by the total electric energy input in watt-hours during the same period. The higher the unit’s SEER rating the more energy efficient it is.
  • Comfort-R™ innovation
    When matched with a variable speed indoor unit from Trane, the XL20i has another special feature. Its a method of enhancing airflow that we call Comfort-R™ and it gives you greater humidity control in cooling. This is accomplished by running the fan at a slower speed during start-up. Comfort-R™ also provides warmer air during heating start-up. These managed cycles reduce temperature variances for the optimum in home comfort.
  • ComfortLink™ II communicating capability
    ComfortLink™ II communicating technology, when matched with communicating indoor units, connects all of your key components so your system automatically charges, configures and calibrates for optimal performance and efficiency through the lifetime of your products. ComfortLink™ II communicating control also offers remote access via smartphone or internet
  • Durable, quiet and economical
    Increased efficiency may substantially lower your home cooling costs. Its fan motor adjusts speed to quietly provide maximum comfort, and materials for all components are tested again and again for long-lasting performance and durability.

And our sales team and the repair department can only confirm:  satisfied customers praise the general function and usability, the comfort and the lower operating cost compared to old systems the XL20i has replaced. and when properly maintained, no repair needs since the introduction of the XL20i series.

More about the Trane XL20I can be found in the brochure or on the Trane website.
