The Trane XR16 Heat Pump - 4TWR6060H1000A
The heat pump works quite
differently from a gas furnace. A gas furnace produces and releases warm air
into your home by burning fuel, whereas a heat pump is a device whose primary
focus is to move warm air around. If it is winter, the heat pump works to keep your home warm and if it is the summer, the
heat pump works to keep your home cool. In either case, it is important that
the machine is capable of doing these at a very efficient rate, as well as
being easy to maintain.
In order to ensure efficient operation, Trane has fitted its heat
pump with several attractive features, which make it a clear winner against
other competitors. Some of the most notable qualities are:
Climatuff™ Compressor: A variable speed
compressor, which serves as the focal point of the Trane heat pump. This
compressor, equipped with TruComfort™ technology, is able to automatically
adjust itself in order to maintain an even temperature spread in your home.
Low Operational Sound: The amount of noise
produced by the heat pump is relatively and stays somewhere between 70 and 75 decibels.
Spine Fin™ Coil: A more durable and reliable
coil which is much better than any predecessor before.
With all features combined, the
heat pump becomes a must-have for any efficient HVAC system and sets itself out
to be the standard to beat. That is not where the praise ends however, as both
the outdoor and indoor units of the heat pump are easily cleaned.
As any central air conditioner
owner would tell you, keeping your system clean is one of the most important
tasks you have. Trane ensures that the overhead for this task is kept at a
minimum by keeping their designs sleek and easy to clean. Nevertheless, due to
exposure to outside elements, you are still likely to end up with molds in duct and hence will require extensive air duct
cleaning. Years down the road, when you air ducts are at their limits and have
begun to show leaks, you will need to call in air duct replacement services
instead of simply going for the usual mold removal.
