    Thanks to all for the input. We ended up with a Trane 3-ton XL16i heat pump, 3-ton TAM8 air handler, and a XL900 thermostat (free upgrade from TAM7 and XL800 because out of stock :cheers:). Thanks...

    OK. I just thought that the original XL16i was a communicating model, but that the new XL16i is non-communicating and the 20i became the only communicating model. Thanks for the input.

    Differences

    LOL. I learned that the hard way. :whistle: The price jump from XL15i to XL16i is +5%ish and the jump from XL16i to XL20i is an additional +10%ish (over the XL16i) of the total installed price...

    Thanks.

    Will do thanks. And just some background - I'm not a Trane loyalist or anything, but have family that works for Trane so I can get the Trane two-stage cheaper than most other brand single stage...

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the input! Admittedly that's the first time that I've heard of the two-stage compressor being referred to as a drawback rather than a benefit. I guess in comparison to the XL20i it would...

    Changing to Trane

    So an opportunity has presented itself where it makes more sense for us to go with a Trane system. The dealer likes the XL16i over the XR16, but from what I've read on here and from reviewing the...

    Thanks, I forgot to mention that I was going to do a blower door test after heat pump installation and before adding insulation. Thanks!

    Speaking of insulation, this is a retrofit obviously and I...
