    Tried to Google this with no luck. Can any of you Trane guys help me out? Air handler model number TWE030C140b0.

    I know its 2.5 ton variable speed. Need to know if it has electric heat and approximate age. The guy says its about two years old however it appears they started making this version on '98. Any other facts would be appreciated. Thanks

    It should have a manufactured date on the data plate if not a serial number is needed. The heater is located behind the top door if in upflow configuration.

    It is not variable speed. Usually there is a mfrd date on the name plate, if not the serial # will tell. Post it. Trane air handlers do not come with heat, it would have been added in the field so can't tell you that.

    TW - split component heat pump compatable
    E - Electric furnace (like they said, heat strips are added in the field, could be anything from 10kw to 25 kw)
    0 - Brazed refrigeration connection
    30 is 2.5 ton like you mentioned
    C - Major development sequence C is standard system, E would be VS motor, P would be high eff system
    1 - 220-230/1/60 (electric rating)
    4 - Accurtron flow control check valve
    0 - Standard insulation
    B - Minor design sequence (means nothing other than to the facotory)
    0 - Service digit (they change these as they do "improvements" on thier stuff)

    Good description on previous post, but not entirely correct:

    TW 'E' = convertible, vertical or horizontal setup
    TWV, you guessed it vertical
    TWH, horizontal

    Where the 'B' is located, in Florida they use an 'F' because units are insulated differently. Typical example; TWE040E13FB0, variable speed, convertible unit

    The model number will not tell you the age, it should be on the tag.

    The age can be determined by the serial number.

    If it is installed with ductboard, look at the date on the tape, if they used fresh tape, that is one indication of age.
