Choosing an HVAC is an important decision. Whichever model you choose will warm, cool, and clean your home’s air for the next decade or two. With this in mind, you may research for hours to make sure you get the right one. There are many different brands, models, sizes, and features to sort through. Let B&L Ott save you some time by recommending three of the most popular models.
We prefer Trane brand HVAC systems for their reliability, durability, and efficiency. If you have questions or need help choosing a model, contact the professionals at B&L Ott in Berks County.
If you are looking for a high efficiency, money saver, the XC95m may be the right HVAC system for you. At 95% efficiency, it will save the home owner big time on natural gas bills, over their older 80% model. This is the model B&L Ott installs most often for customers. The XC95m can be set up in almost any home situation with ductwork.
Finding warm and cool spots throughout your home can be frustrating. This model features a variable speed blower motor that can help combat uneven heating throughout your home. With its high efficiency, the XC95m is also cost effective. A majority of older furnaces operate between 75%-80% efficient. This means that for every dollar that you spend on heating your home, only 75 cents goes to heating the house and 25 cents go out the chimney. For every dollar spent with the XC95m, 95 cents go towards heating your home.
The XC95 comes in many different sizes to fit almost any home. It is also the most durable furnace in its class. Its heat exchanger and powder coated metal casing are crimped instead of welded. This allows it to withstand the harshest of Berks County weather conditions. With yearly maintenance and proper installation from B&L Ott, this model will serve you for 15-20 years.
XV18 Air Conditioner
Another popular model is the XV18 air conditioner. This model dehumidifies better than any other unit. B&L Ott can install this model in a home of any size with ductwork. At the heart of the system lies a variable speed compressor. It is the most reliable, quiet, and energy efficient compressor that Trane makes. At 18 SEER (SEER is like MPG on a car), the XV18 is highly efficient. Compared to an older conventional A/C unit, you will spend much less to keep your house at the same, if not cooler temperature.
Like the XC95m, the XV18 is extremely durable with a powder coated, louvered case. Even the screws are zinc plated to prevent rusting. This unit will last season after season, and will not break down due to weathering. This model requires yearly maintenance from B&L Ott to help ensure efficiency and reliability. The life expectancy of a well-maintained XV18, when installed by B&L OTT, is 15-20 years.
Trane Clean Effects Electronic Air Cleaner
If you are looking for a system to clean the air in your home, the Trane Clean Effects electronic air cleaner may be your best choice. This model is 99.98% effective at removing airborne particles from your breathing air. It can filter dust and allergens out of the air, down to .1 microns. That’s 700 times smaller than a human hair! B&L Ott can install this model into any home with enough space and ductwork.
This system saves you money by keeping the system clean. Because the dust and dirt are not getting through the filter, it is not getting stuck on vital parts of the system. Dirt and dust build up will decrease any HVACs efficiency. It may also cause premature failure of the system.
The Trane Clean Effects has a powder coated case and micro engendered internal parts making it durable. This system should be cleaned twice a year by a Trane certified technician. With proper maintenance and installation from B&L Ott, it will provide 10+ years of dependable service.
