DAVIDSON, N.C. — Trane, a brand of Ingersoll Rand, has introduced a line of 14 SEER and 16 SEER over/under packaged units, available now in select markets that have new minimum regional energy efficiency standards.

Trane noted that, at a time when regional efficiency changes are going into effect in the southern part of the country, and an estimated 40,000 previously installed units are still in operation, the company is offering upgraded units for direct replacement of prior over/under products. “Our new XR14h models will help our customers replace existing units and deliver the energy-efficient, reliable service they’ve come to expect from Trane,” said Matt Barga, portfolio leader, air conditioners, furnaces & coils, Residential HVAC.

Packaged in a flexible cabinet, over/under all-in-one heating and air conditioning systems suit the structural and spatial requirements of a home, while working efficiently and quietly to keep homes comfortable year round, said the company.

Trane is introducing three new 14 SEER models with cooling capacities ranging from 30,000 to 39,500 Btuh and high heating capacities from 25,600 to 35,000. A 16-SEER model is also available with a 24,800 cooling capacity and 21,200 high heating capacity.

All models feature a Climatuff™ scroll compressor, an enhanced defrost control board, and improved service connection locations to eliminate tube rub issues.

Existing Trane over/under unit accessories, such as the BAYHTRC series heaters, are also compatible with the new models.

“Our new XR14h line offers both added efficiency and the ability to easily upgrade a home’s system to meet the latest efficiency requirements in the region,” Barga said.
