I am purchassing a Trane XR15 (Single stage) 15 seer unit next week and am concerned about fan noise. My neighbor has an older XR13 (2006) and although the compressor is quiet, it has a conventional fan blade and a slotted grill with half inch slanted slotts all the way around the top rather than a normal wire mesh grill and it is very loud!!
The XR15 condensor unit will be direclty behind my bedroom and my bedroom is upstairs with 2 windows directly above the condensor. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with the XR15 fan or noise level. I have heard the XR15 is using a different fan blade but appreciate any info you can provide.
