    How would this compare to a heat pump/central air unit, like my Trane XL15?
  2. Considering buying a home with geo - thermal. Please explain and pros and cons

    I am looking at purchasing a house built in 1993 with geo-thermal heating and cooling. What are the pros and cons of this system? I had heard at one point that when you consider the cost of the...
  3. I believe that this is the type of system. The...

    I believe that this is the type of system. The hot water is heated with natural gas.

  4. Hydro air/natural gas - can you school me as to the pros and cons. Buying a house

    I am considering purchasing a home that is hydro air/natural gas with central a/c. I have no experience with this combo. I have owned an electric condo with a heat pump and grew up in a house with...

    The place it was purchased is called Wallwork Brothers in Elmsford NY.
    http://www.wallworkgroup.com/

    They adverstise that they have Trane, but I am not sure what level they are.
  6. I asked Trane to have the FSR call me when he...

    I asked Trane to have the FSR call me when he resolves the issue or when he determines what needs to be done. He never called and they would not give me his contact info. I was stunned.
  7. I am 1 hour north of NYC.

    I am 1 hour north of NYC.
  8. I have several calls logged with Trane. There...

    I have several calls logged with Trane. There customer service is terrible. I will likely have to write them a letter. I could explain it all to you, but they actually closed my first service...
  9. You are 100% correct. I purchased the extended...

    You are 100% correct. I purchased the extended warranty for labor and refrigerant for 10 years, from ANOTHER COMPANY, last week. I am just about done with these guys. They are sending a different...
  10. 6 month old Trane hyperion has 2 fault codes - dealer not too attentive- help

    My dealer is pretty much on the way out of our relationship. They had sent a tech over to do a spring check up. He stared at the red fault codes and buttoned it all back up. I did not realize that...

    When I woke up this morning it was still 72 degrees, but 51% humidity. Please explain. Thanks.
  12. Teddy bear, I thought the supply air is the air...

    Teddy bear, I thought the supply air is the air in the house. THe outside air is 80 degrees with 77% humidity. Inside is 72 with 70% humidity. The fan is on auto.
  13. 70% humidity at 72 degrees with my Trane XL15i and Hyperion- why so humid?

    I have a 2 ton system for my upstairs 1100 sqft condo. It usually keeps the humidity around 50-54%. But it was over 90 here today and I am sure it ran for most of the day. Any idea why it is so...
  14. I get 7 flashes on the evc and that apparently...

    I get 7 flashes on the evc and that apparently could mean a restriction or low refrigerant. I requested a new technician. The lights were there when he got there, and he never addressed them. That...
  15. Thanks, I will look for the books in the attic. ...

    Thanks, I will look for the books in the attic. I don't think it was during installation, as I am pretty certain I had green and blue only for quite a while. I think the red lights are relatively...
  16. That is what I thought. Thank you for posting...

    That is what I thought. Thank you for posting that. I am stunned as to how little info I could find about these lights on the internet. I thought I would find the whole diagnostic handbook that...
  17. It has been 24 hours and the red lights are still...

    It has been 24 hours and the red lights are still showing. Can anyone confirm if it should be just blue and green? I saw a youtube video that showed normal operation and I did not see and red...
  18. I hope so. There were some power dips yesterday,...

    I hope so. There were some power dips yesterday, but the weather has been fine today and the lights have been on all day, but I did not use the A/C today. Are you still comfortable with that? ...
  19. Trane Hyperion diagnostic lights- do I have a problem?

    I thought it should just show blue and green. I had the unit serviced today and the red lights were on before and after, but I didn't think to ask if red was a problem until after he left. The tech...
  20. Having spring service tomorrow - 1st service since install 6 months ago - ??

    I want to make sure they do what they should. Are there any particular pressures or readings that I should ask for. I have had problems with excessive resonating noise in the winter and my...

    So, when they move it you want it moved how far away? Please tell me so that I can get this right. Thanks guys.
  22. I was told to work with Trane and the contractor...

    I was told to work with Trane and the contractor and look into a discharge muffler and possibly run a new lineset on the exterior of the building. I have called refrigeration research, who makes the...

    The lennox unit is my neighbor's. It is not my unit. I have just the Trane. I can have them move the pad if they have to move the lineset. Please advise.
    By looking at the lennox specs it seems...
  24. jimj, what do you mean by that? Please explain. ...

    jimj, what do you mean by that? Please explain. Thanks.

    Catmanacman, the colder the winter weather, the worse it is. I put it in heating mode on a 60 degree day and it was MUCH quieter. When...

    Ok, here are some pics. There is one modification that came after the first few pictures. You can see the addition of the isolator waffles that were put under the unit in the last picture.
  26. The pad is away from the house and the unit is...

    The pad is away from the house and the unit is propped up on isolator waffles. I will post up a picture tonight. Thanks
  27. Well, I can open the sheetrock, ruin the...

    Well, I can open the sheetrock, ruin the wallpaper, or we can run the new lineset outside. If you ran it outside, can you tell me how you would do it? I can post a picture of the outside of the...
  28. The problem I am having is that it does it only...

    The problem I am having is that it does it only in heat mode and Trane claimed they would influence the contractor and I asked that the field rep call me. None of that ever happened. As a matter...
  29. I wanted to update this thread too. Trane, after...

    I wanted to update this thread too. Trane, after 5 calls and speaking with supervisors, provided zero help. They appear to have no influence.
  30. It appears calling Trane directly will get you...

    It appears calling Trane directly will get you nothing. I have reference numbers and nothing else. They claim that they will contact the dealer and the local rep and nobody actually gets called. I...
  31. I would be fine with a whole new lineset, run up...

    I would be fine with a whole new lineset, run up the exterior of the building, but my neighbor did that and he has the resonating in his bathroom.
  32. Trane XL 15i heat pump noise nightmare, terrible Trane customer service, advice?

    I had made some posts about this over the winter, but here is a quick synopsis:
    Had heat pump installed 12/27/11. I reported the resonating noise in the wall one week later. The unit works fine,...
  33. Yes, I called Trane. I have a customer service...

    Yes, I called Trane. I have a customer service reference or case number and Trane is going to contact my dealer. I told them I have no ill feelings toward the dealer and want to work with them...
  34. ok, thanks. They claim the charge is ok. He did...

    ok, thanks. They claim the charge is ok. He did come back and hook his gauges to it and was satisfied. The system seems to function fine. I just HATE the drone. I will call Trane tomorrow.
  35. Refrigeration Research suggested that I contact...

    Refrigeration Research suggested that I contact Trane and thought that they would have a muffler for the machine. He says it is fairly common and that they should be able to provide some assistance.
  36. I'd love to hear what you have to say. I take...

    I'd love to hear what you have to say. I take help from all avenues. But my undestanding is that you have to register with the forum.
  37. I am a patient man. I have and will continue to...

    I am a patient man. I have and will continue to work politely with the contractor. But, I do not think we shoud "gamble" on any fix. From what I can see, the Trane xl15i has good reviews and the...
  38. I contacted Trane, right from the outset. But,...

    I contacted Trane, right from the outset. But, they wanted me to work through the dealer. But now that he is un-interested in the discharge muffler and the lineset is a "gamble", I am beginning to...
  39. Knowing my neighbor, with a new exterior lineset,...

    Knowing my neighbor, with a new exterior lineset, hears this noise on his second floor, I am beginning to feel this is a Trane flaw. I will call the discharge muffler company and get their thoughts.
  40. The discharge muffler on those units, is it...

    The discharge muffler on those units, is it something made by carrier for those units or are they adding an aftermarket, like Refrigeration Research? Do you know why they are required on those? ...
  41. Discharge Mufflers- who has used them and what are your thoughts

    I have a trane xl15i that makes a resonating sound that we hate. I have the original lineset in the wall, but have a neighbor who has a new exterior lineset and he also has a resonating sound in one...
  42. Well the contractor is going to give me a price...

    Well the contractor is going to give me a price to run a new lineset. But, I am not going for it until I go to hear my neighbor's set up again when the temp gets hot enough for a/c or cool enough...
  43. There were two options: new lineset flush...

    There were two options:
    new lineset
    flush existing

    I went with flush existing because I live in a condo and they would like to avoid new linesets running up the exterior. There is no way to...
  44. It is a second floor condo, with no access to the...

    It is a second floor condo, with no access to the lineset in the first floor wall.
    I will mention the muffler from that brand. In theory, shouldn't an exterior lineset solve this?
  45. That is the first time I have heard that about...

    That is the first time I have heard that about the Trane units and I hope this is not a permanent problem I have to live with. Shouldn't a new lineset, run up the exterior, instead of using the...
  46. New Trane xl15i HP resonates in the wall- lineset isolators?

    I have been waiting to hear from my contractor about how we should handle this. It makes a resonating drone in the wall with the lineset. The lineset is the original that was set up with 22-a and...

    I meant to write "some SAY it could restrict flow"
  48. I googled and cannot find enough info to make a...

    I googled and cannot find enough info to make a determination. Some day it could restrict the flow and is very expensive and may not work.

    If I go with the new lineset, will they need to add oil...
  49. Where is "Product Research"? Is it a sub-forum? ...

    Where is "Product Research"? Is it a sub-forum? Are the mufflers an acceptable fix that does not shorten the lifespan of the system?
  50. If I get a new lineset installed, does anybody...

    If I get a new lineset installed, does anybody have an outline as to what needs to be done and do you see any problem with the proposed lineset location in the pic in the previous post? I imagine I...
