    Trane Systems

    I'm looking at a new 5 ton System..
    I have prices for the XR13 with the GAM5 air handler that is 13.75 SEER
    And a XR15 with the GAM5 air handler that is 14 SEER..

    Is there any difference in these condensers that warrants the extra cost of the XR15?

    There is a 2 stage version of the XR 15 that will get you 16 SEER with a TAM7 series air handler, in case your salesman didn't mention it. If money is the issue, it would not be worth the difference between the XR13 and 15

    If the only gain you get is .25 seer, than I would say no, not worth the cost.

    For those who don't know, the seer rating is a reference to the amount of cooling received for 1 Kilo Watt of electricity.

    so 13 seer means 13 btu's per KW
    15 seer means 15 btu's per KW
    and so on.
