If you’re looking for an air conditioner, the first thing you need to do is identify what features matter to you most. Do you want the best value? Do you want the most energy efficient? Or maybe a bit of both?
In order to make your choice a little easier, we’ve identified the air conditioner that performs the best in three important categories: energy efficiency, quiet operation and value. We’ll explain what those categories mean and explain how our best air conditioners perform so you can make the right decision for you and your family.
Honestly, your best resource for a thorough understanding of the latest equipment and what your home needs is your local HVAC specialist. However, there are a few key terms and features you should know when shopping for a new air conditioner.
The XV20i air conditioner has the highest efficiency rating in our family of products at up to 22 SEER. With that level of energy efficiency, customers can possibly save up to 64% each year in energy costs*. The XV20i is Energy Star Qualified and includes our patented TruComfort™ variable-speed system and integrated communicating technology to keep your home at an optimal temperature and avoid spikes that lead to increased energy consumption.
The Trane XV18 air conditioner has a sound level starting as low as 57 dBA – 4 dB below the competition. It includes innovative sound insulators and a unique integrated fan system with a blade-down fan design that improves airflow and reduces sound levels. XV18 is also Energy Star Qualified with a SEER rating up to 18 – making it a great combination of energy efficiency and quiet operation.
We’ve identified the Trane XR14 as our best value air conditioner because of its high efficiency ratings and more affordable price point. With a SEER rating of up to 16, you can expect to see noticeable energy savings when you replace an older, less efficient unit.
You can see all our air conditioners and compare features to find the one that matches your needs best. Where you live, home size and more all make a difference in choosing the right air conditioner. Your local Trane Comfort Specialist will conduct a custom evaluation and work with you to find an air conditioner that’s perfect for your home.
