I ordered an XL15i Heat Pump, in which I have been waiting on for two weeks now and it is still on back order.
I currently have a Rheem Oil Furnace.
I am getting the XL15i HP, Trane Cleaneffects, Aprilaire Humidifer, and TStat 802
Since the XL15i is on backorder, what do you all think about me going with an XL16i HP.
I know the 15 is a single stage and the 16 is a dual stage. What I was thinking is that the 16 will run in the lower stage and in the instance my Rheem (5 years old) goes out I will already be ahead of the game by having a dual stage condenser and I can put in a variable speed furnace.
Does this make sense?
With the 16i running in the 1st stage all the time, is that the same as the 15i single stage?
Also how do you all feel about the Trane TSTAT 802 with the XL15i setup and if I were to go with the 16i setup?
