Jut like any other technology, HVAC systems have greatly changed throughout the years. A new Trane heat pump has many improvements compared to one manufactured fifteen or even ten years ago. This article will explain a few of the improvements and how they will benefit your home comfort.
When you first glance at a new Trane heat pump when sitting next to an older unit, you’ll notice the outdoor condenser is larger in size. This is because they have increased the size of the coil. There are many benefits to that. Leaks in coils generally happen at man-made joints inside the coil. Newer Trane coils only have 10 such joints as compared to 30 in all other brands. The surface of the coil is round and large, not flat and thin like all others. This allows for a better cleaning during maintenance visits and better heat transfer for efficiency.
Also, some of the new Trane heat pumps come with a plastic top. This will help to keep leaves and debris from falling into the system. Additionally, it prevents fingers from being injured when reaching into the system.
The base of a new Trane heat pump is made from a composite material. Previously metal was used. The composite material has two benefits. First, it’ll prevent corrosion and rust from forming. Second, it’ll help reduce vibration and noise.
There have been many upgrades to the technology in new Trane heat pumps. From the advanced thermostats to variable speed capabilities, they greatly improve the comfort of your home. For more details on the new technology visit Trane’s site.
New Trane Heat Pump Lifespans
The lifespan of a new Trane heat pump will depend greatly on how it’s maintained. The lifespan of a heat pump in our area can range 10-12 years.
