Hi, I have checked this forum to learn the HVAC related issues since I decided to replace my old system. Now I have a question to ask the experts here after my new heat pump and gas furnace were installed last week. So this is the first time I register and post a thread .
My new hybrid system includes Trane units :
Gas Furnace: XR95 single stage
Heat Pump : XL15i 3.5 tons
Coil unit : TXCC044BC3HCAA
My question and concern is related to the heat pump and coil. I just found out that the manufacture date of the heat pump is 2011, but the coil was made in2007 which is definitely not a up to date model. (The gas furnace is made in 2011.) I called Trane to ask if it is OK to have the 2 models paired. The person I talked to did not give a precise answer but said it MIGHT have some changes on the coil in the 4-year period, better for me ask the dealer. I did call the dealer who did the installation, the sales person (comfort specialist) who handle my account said he will call the supplier to find out if there is any configuration change between the 2007 and 2011 coil models. If only the manufacture year is different, then it should be ok. For me, I have doubt about the new heat pump paired with coil that has been sitting somewher for 4 yeas. I am also afraid the sales person might pass me wrong info to avoid the reponsiblity of replacing the newer model. I would like to have professional advices from you guys about this matter before I make the final payment to the company.
Should I insist the company to give me a 2011 model? Or is that truely ok to pair the 2011 heat pump with the 2007 coil?( I mean there is no problem related to system function in the days ahead.) How about the warranty? Will Trane honor the warranty if the 2 units are from different year? Will the 2007 coil make the warranty shorter? Any other isssues that I might not aware of?
Any advice will be much appreciated.
