    Is that because I'm likely to need the warranty or is there something else?
  2. I did. It was a 10 year parts and labor warranty...

    I did. It was a 10 year parts and labor warranty and added about 16% to the cost. If I decide a better warranty is worth the money, that would make a lot more sense than upgrading from the XR to...

    That's correct. The XR has 10 year compressor and 10 year parts.
  4. So if I'm not too concerned about the noise level...

    So if I'm not too concerned about the noise level it's pretty much down to whether I think it's worth paying 12.5% more for a 10 year parts warranty (other than the compressor) on the XR versus 5...
  5. Okay, got the pricing. The XR13 is 12.5% more...

    Okay, got the pricing. The XR13 is 12.5% more than the XB13.

    I'm looking over Trane's advertising on both the XB and XR units. They match feature for feature (same compressor, same coil for...

    No reason not to. Gonna call and ask right now.

    Also, can you quantify what you mean by a "slightly better unit"? Do they use significantly different internal components?
  7. Sorry for the long delay in revisiting this...

    Sorry for the long delay in revisiting this thread. I just got back from my summer family vacation and need to get this in work.

    The comment was made that the XB13 is a "Builder grade AC". That...
  8. I'm not sure what you're getting at. I'm not...

    I'm not sure what you're getting at. I'm not upgrading to a larger AC unit or dissatisfied with the cooling ability of my current Carrier (when it worked). I'm simply replacing a defective air...

    The house is 2,700 square feet (two floors) with a concrete tile roof and stucco exterior. The insulation is average.
  10. I can't think of any time the AC has run for less...

    I can't think of any time the AC has run for less than seven minutes. When it's hot, it runs in something more like half hour cycles. For reference, hot here is 80's to low 90's in the extreme...
  11. Thanks for the feedback. I'll be keeping the...

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll be keeping the current blower (and of course all the existing piping). Then again, I probably won't get 13 SEER out of the XB13 either. The warranty is longer on the...
  12. Trane air conditioner: 13 versus 15 SEER?

    Our 15 year old Carrier AC has failed yet again and I'm not going to fix it this time. We've gotten a few quotes and I've zeroed in on one from a small reputable dealer who sells Trane.

    The...
  13. Leslie Locke whole house fan motor replacement

    I have a Leslie Locke whole house fan (from Home Depot) with a bad motor. It's a 1/3 horsepower unit made by Dow Motor USA.

    Does anyone have a suggestion as to where to obtain a replacement?

  14. Thanks again for all the feedback. The...

    Thanks again for all the feedback. The contractor is going to come out and perform a leak check on the existing system. If I buy anything new, they'll waive the cost.

    With that in mind, I had a...
  15. Thanks for the feedback. From your experience,...

    Thanks for the feedback. From your experience, are leaks often repairable?

    If the leak could be fixed that would obviously save a lot of money.

    Thanks (yet again)!
  16. Opps! Sorry about the pricing. I wasn't looking...

    Opps! Sorry about the pricing. I wasn't looking to check numbers, just wanted to show the comparative rough costs of each option.

    I may have misstated a bit... when I said replace the...
  17. AC down (loss of refrigerant)... need advice

    Hi! I have a problem with my AC at home and need some advice...

    The unit is about twelve years old but the compressor was replaced at one point (at least five years ago). It's a 10 SEER Carrier...
