I have a 2 stage variable speed furnace which I really like. However, because I only have a 1 stage heat pump, the heat pump indoor blower speed is ALWAYS fast (same for AC).
I really enjoy the...
That is an excellent suggestion. That gives them the flexibility to add heatpump (ac capability built in) with energy savings later.
I'm surprised your contractors are...

I am very satisfied with my XL14i heat pump. However, my only annoyance is with the IRS rules to claiming the $300 tax credit.
My unit (per http://www.aridirectory.org is rated at 15...

If you get a Goodman 90 afue furnace you may find that your total monthly cost (after utility savings) is very minimal.

Glad to hear that Trane provided factory support to help solve your DSS problem. I had read your original post "Dirty Sock Syndrome Lie".

From a homeowner who has been on this site for about 1 1/2 years - WELCOME.
Don't worry about the software glitch that must have originally posted your question in another section. ...

do you give your customers "ultimate" or "more than sufficient" service?
Of course, many customers may feel that the prices for steam humidifiers are ULTIMATE.
At least Aprilaire offers the...
I was told that the higher blower speed is needed for efficiency for the heat mode of the heat pump.
My former furnace was 75,000 btu. The new furnace/air handler is 60,000 with a "3 ton blower"....

I agree with 1972torino. Also, some HVAC "showrooms" have models on display and you could see which models do or do not have fiberglass.
As a homeowner, I have followed the routine...

Thanks for the reply. Since the XL16i and XL19i heat pump have 2 stage (compressor)
heating, I see that as a real advantage in the colder climates especially
for new construction. ...

I have posed this question so many times.
Is it true that ALL Trane Heat Pumps have only 1 "stage" or compressor speed for the
HEAT mode (even XL16i and XL19i)?
If so, then you might not...
"Take them apart and hose them down".
If I have a crawlspace and asked a contractor to detach the parts at the
airhandler/furnace could this actually be done?

I still haven't received the utility bill that
included the record hot weekend up through 7/16/06.
I'll try to remember to post some winter heat utilities too

Just curious - did you go with AC or Heat Pump, R22 or R410a?
If you use the HVAC Calc, you will get better ideas.
My furnace is a 2 stage 60,000 btu input. The installers never installed the "jumper wire", so my unit only ran in low stage even when cold...

My contractor said I will probably save $200 per year in heating costs by getting a heat pump as opposed to regular AC. Maybe ask your contractor for some numbers.
The heat pump was added to my...
Consider using the HVAC calc software to double check the tonnage size for the AC. You might ask about XL16i. Many Pro's consider it Trane's best, also because it has R410a instead of R22 which is...

"walk away --
gonna cost as much as new unit"
You never know. The customers might be so distrustful of the original contractor,
they might pay Steve's company to have a new system put in.
A lot of HVAC Pro's are very against R22 refrigerant because it is being phased out.
The XL15i and XL19i have R22.
The XL16i is only offered with R410a. The XL14i is available with

If it has adaptive recovery like the Honeywell Vision Pro,
it will attempt to recover to whatever temp you normally
have programmed for Saturday at 10am.

Use the HVAC Calc program to calculate the heat load.
Ask contractor #1 to give you a quote for a 3 ton unit.
Contractor #3 sounds good too.
These two quality contractors will appreciate...
Sorry for the second post, but yes I agree, get a quote from a contractor that does American Standard also.
From your Trane dealer, ask about the price of an XL14i heat pump. Also ask about electric backup for the heat pump. I've heard that in the mid-Atlantic the gas rates are 1.30 per therm (insane).
