Trane Boot Camp


I spent four days this week at Trane Boot Camp going over sales and the xv20i variable communicating system (700-750 stages variable speed compressor, variable speed blower and variable speed inducer mated to a variable gas valve) led by the xl950 7" Nexia zwave home intelligence thermostat.

I'll never push for single stage again.

Yall should check it out, the boot camp.

Trane Boot Camp


Great technology but the problem is after the 10 yr parts warranty is over they will be VERY expensive to fix and only 10% of the techs will know how. 2 stage with an X13 motor is about as high tech as I will get for my home. I imagine within 5 yrs PSCs will be gone on new units/ the minimum Government efficiency standard will be X13s and the market share will rise and drop the price of those motors.

12 years on the xv's.

I dunno, but I learned a lot and certainly appreciate the technology. Up to 63% more efficient than a standard single stage system. They run at 30% capacity 80% of the time, equal to a 100 watt light bulb apparently.

Ill let you know how they turn out if I sell one.

Only if they are sized right.

That'll be great for homeowners with propane! 2 stage variable speed 90 plus is all most people need. If your looking to save...
