    Thanks, I confirmed that in the specs. I wish it would go lower. The balance point is low-mid 20's with typical NC cold dry air. It is probably in the low 30's with precipitation which we have had...

    The house is unoccupied during the day and I see no good reason to spend money heating and cooling it during this time. Winter setback is 62 from 70. Summer setback is 85 from 75.

    No setback is...

    Thanks for the info. 40 degrees seems kind of high to be kicking on the (COP=1) heat strips. What is the COP of the heat pump itself at this temperature. For my climate I would like to see 30-35...

    Good point! The warranty is through American Standard Warranty company (ASWC) which appears to be Trane and not some third party. I dug through my paperwork and in the warranty under section A-6...

    Thanks for the feedback. I still have 3 years on the extended warranty. Hopefully, any "weakening" of the compressor or fan motor will show itself before then.

    My old system blew a blower cap. The...

    Thanks, I will point them to the install manual. As far as temperature settings go how do you know the temperature to allow the heat strips to operate? Is there a temperature at which the heat pump...

    Thanks for confirming that this system can be setup to function this way. It looks like I need to go back to the installer. I am not looking forward to this. So far these guys have been the biggest...

    Hello,

    My Trane XL15I system died once again. This time it was a failed run capacitor. It was starting to make more noticeable compressor vibrations which get transmitted into the air handler in...

    Best Motor Run Capacitors?

    Hello,

    My Trane XL15I recently blew it's dual run capacitor. The tech left me the original cap and the box the replacement came in.

  13. Heatpump Heat Strip Outside Temperature Lockout?

    Hello,

    I was sold a Trane XL15I system several years ago. It came with the Trane equivalent of the Honeywell TH8320 programmable thermostat with an outside temperature sensor.

    I was told by the...

    Any idea what these chemicals are and where they come from? This house is 33 years old so there are no building materials to outgass, no new furniture, no new carpet, and no Chinese drywall etc. The...

    Teddy Bear,

    I hauled the unit out of the crawlspace and removed the covers and the Styrofoam duct work. Once inside I found the evaporator coil with refrigerant oil all over it in multiple places....

    I am not sure. What does a "copper spun" filter look like? Is it part of the compressor assembly or piping? A picture would be helpful here.

    Would you care to name names for the benefit of other members on this board? If not can I contact you directly? I may be in the market for one of these in the near future.
  19. NO Filter/Drier - NO Low Pressure Cutout ?

    Hello,

    Is the lack of a filter/drier and low pressure cutouts now becoming the new normal in smaller refrigeration systems? By smaller systems I am referring to refrigerators, window A/Cs,...

    I am in central North Carolina. Yes, it gets humid down here which is why I bought the unit in the first place. No other copper in the crawl space has corroded nor in the main air handler either....

    Fabric softener nor dryer sheets are used which rules this out. Also the dryer vent is completely metal and well sealed.

    Thanks for everyone's feedback. This is residential in a 33 year old house so construction material out-gassing is probably not to blame. There is no gas service to the house so that rules out...
