    His is a straight cool unit. No reversing valve solenoid, no check valve. But you are right, they do make noise on heat pumps.

    You have it exactly right. I will be very surprised to find out that you are not 100% perfectly comfortable in the house once you get that last jumper finalized. I really doubt you'll end up with a...

    Trane has lots of info available on these units for dealers. They put on classes. They have Field Service Reps that are a phone call away. Bottom line is that the dealer has to take the time to...

    There is no humidistat "built in".

    You still need the jumper from "O" to "Ylo".

    If somebody said that, they were probably talking about the inherent dehumidification of the variable speed in...

    You need the jumper from "O" to "Ylo".

    Electrical picture 5, looks like the jumper is missing from "O" to "Ylo" that somebody mentioned earlier. Without this jumper, in cooling mode it will go from 50% of cooling CFMs to 100% after 1...

    Did you verify with Trane what factory warranty you DID have? I'm thinking the variable speed air handlers have more than one year. The 16i may also. I know my company almost always sells the 10...
