From an end user standpoint the RotoLok versus soldered joints makes no difference. When you are standing on top of a compressor inside a condensing unit, and your helper is pulling on a 24" pipe wrench with a 4 foot cheater bar on the end, trying to break the RotoLok loose, you will form your own opinions!
ahh, learn something new every day

The XL15i uses a scroll compressor and the sound blanket is standard equipment. They are fairly quiet running but, as with most scrolls, they do make some start-up noise when they have been off for a while. The start-up noise lasts for about two seconds when the spirals make initial contact. After that they are much quieter than the old reciprocating compressors.
