Just had a Trane Xl16i heat pump installed and I assumed I would qualify for the Federal Tax Credit but I don't see it on the Trane list on their website. I called Trane and they said it did not qualify. The person I spoke to on the phone was not very helpful and did not seem very knowledgable.
ARI Ref# 548659
SEER Rating 17.00
HSPF Rating 9.2
Where can I get the EER rating and how do I determine if this system qualifies? I can't belive the single stage trane 15 seer heatpump qualifies and their more effient 16i and 19i do not.
I just got a call from my contractor and he states that the EER rating only applies to single stage heat pumps and since the 16i is dual that it is not applicable. Is that right? and if so, does this system qualify? My contractor maintains that it does qualify but I obviously want to make sure before I claim the credit.
