Other XL15i Reviews
Users on hvac-talk.com generally like the Trane XL15i, although some note that in extremely hot climates its cooling power might fall short. Users prefer this model in frank comparisons with other models (with similar SEER ratings) from Rheem and Lennox, saying that the Trane warranty is particularly good.
Users on gardenweb.com have similar opinions, sometimes preferring the XL15i even when it is more expensive than comparable models from Lennox and Bryant. However, some reviewers believe that the XL15i isn’t worth the extra money compared to Trane’s next model down, the XR15.
Folks on doityourself.com definitely notice the extra expense, but most think that it would still be a worthwhile investment. Overall, this model is very popular and positively reviewed.
The XL1i comes with some limited warranties. Trane gives 12 years for the compressor, 10 years for the outdoor coil and 10 years on internal parts. To claim this warranty, owners must register within 60 days of installation (or else a stripped-down version of the warranty goes into effect). The warranty is only valid for residential properties. Homeowners may also purchase improvements to their warranties, including extensions to the coverage time and transferability.
