We have a 18.5 year old Trane 1200. It is starting to do weird things like just recently kicking off the breaker, which we were quoted about $$$. to replace. Last year was $$$ in costs. So its time to consider replacement.
Location; Just outside Dayton, Ohio (SW Ohio)
1800 Sq Ft 2 story over unfinished basement, constructed 1979 but constructed with ungraded Anderson double pane windows and recently new siding with thermal wrap. Ungraded Trane thermostat about 1996
Originally had 2.0 Ton Heat Pump with electric coils, and then replace in 1994 with Trane XL1200 2.5 ton unit to get more cooling to second floor. 2.5 tons has house very comfortable.
Getting ready to talk to local HVAC who sells Trane.
I think a 2.5 ton Trane XR15 with Hyperion XR airhandler would be good. In future we might finish off 1/2 of basement (400 sq ft) or build 400 sq ft addition on slab
Is this a good choice or what might be better in about the same price range?
Comments on adding a THUMD200 Humidifier?
Is adding a Trane CleanEffects Air Cleaner worth it?
