Trane XL16c Gas Pack Review

The Trane XL16c gas pack is Trane’s best gas/electric package unit.  It is stocked with some of Trane’s best components like the 2-stage Climatuff compressor and a variable-speed blower motor.  These features offer the homeowner very precise control over the indoor climate in their home, with balanced temperatures, Comfort-R humidity control when cooling, and better air filtration throughout the year.  This model is a good choice in moderate to warm climates where the 16.6 SEER for cooling will lower energy consumption and costs by up to 40% when replacing an older gas pack. The efficiency for heating is only 80% and this may be a drawback in cooler climates.  However, very few gas packs offer better efficiency for heating.  We will continue this Trane XL16c gas pack review with a summary of its top features before providing information on pricing, warranty and installation.  Here are those top features:

  • Up to 16.6 SEER cooling; 80% AFUE heating.
  • 2-stage Climatuff compressor is one of the highest rated in the HVAC industry.
  • Variable-speed Vortica blower and 2-stage operation provide greater home comfort.
  • Comfort-R system runs the fan consistently on low for increased dehumidification when cooling.
  • Aluminum-fin coil transfers heat rapidly and resists corrosion.
  • Stainless steel heat exchanger and burners are corrosion-resistant and durable.
  • Powder-paint finish resists fading, rust, chips and scratches.
  • Louvered sides offer good air flow as well as protection.
  • Rounded cabinet corners are safer.
  • 3, 4, and 5 ton capacities available.
