Trane XR14 Air Conditioner
Trane XR14 Air Conditioner
It’s hard to stop a Trane. It would be hard to stick with that slogan as long as they have if they couldn’t back it up. As a Factory Authorized Trane Dealer for decades, all of us at Magic Touch Mechanical have come to believe it too. Of the many brand options we offer, Trane has certainly proved to be one of the most reliable and durable brands we have ever installed. While the Trane XR14 may be Trane’s entry-level consumer model, it is built with the same quality, on the same manufacturing line, by the same people as some of their premium models. We’ve been to Trane’s manufacturing facilities on many occasions and seen it for ourselves!
Efficiency Ratings of the XR14
- SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings as high as 16.o
Paired with certain AHRI rated evaporative coil and gas furnace, the Trane XR14 air conditioner is capable of achieving 16-SEER efficiency. Even better, for the same cost as some of its 14-SEER competitors! This is a great way for homeowners with a limited replacement budget to get a mid-tier end result with an entry-level tier investment.
Trane Climatuff Compressor
The Trane XR14 may be a basic single-stage cooling system, but it’s still built with some of the same components as its “better” and “best” counterparts. Most HVAC Service Technicians would agree that Trane’s Climatuff compressor is one of the most solid and durable compressors ever built – and there’s one in every XR14. The compressor is the heart of an AC unit so its nice to know your unit has the best one ever made!
Trane XR14 Air Conditioner Sound Rating
Trane comes out the winner in this category as compared to the majority of its competitors in this class. With decibel ratings as low as 72dB, the Trane XR14 is considerably quieter than most 14-SEER AC units. Typically, manufacturers concentrate on low sound levels in their mid to top-tier models but not Trane – they managed to pull it off in this model too!
Trane Quality Built in to the XR14 Air Conditioner
Louvered panels protecting the outdoor coil and components from hail, pets, and landscape equipment come standard in the XR14. As does the Duratuff corrosion resistant condenser base pan and Teflon coated screws and fasteners keeping everything tight and rattle-free for years to come. From Trane’s patented “spine-fin” coils to an upgraded condenser fan motor, you get more than you pay for when you buy an XR14 in our opinion.
