Air Condition Model #XL20i with ComfortLink II

Efficient Performance

When matched with a variable speed indoor unit from Trane, the XL20i has another special feature. It’s a method of enhancing airflow that we call Comfort-R™ and it gives you greater humidity control in cooling. This is accomplished by running the fan at a slower speed during start-up. Comfort-R™ also provides warmer air during heating start-up. These managed cycles reduce temperature variances for the optimum in home comfort.

The XL20i’s SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating of up to 20.00 is among the highest energy efficiency rating of any air conditioner available today. The XL20i has two compressors: one for milder weather and a second larger compressor for those extremely hot days. It’s like having two units in one.

ComfortLink II Communicating Capability

ComfortLink II communicating technology (available when matched with communicating indoor units) connects all of your key components so your system automatically charges, configures and calibrates for optimal performance and efficiency through the lifetime of your products. When the optional Telephone Access Module (TAM) is added, you can conveniently adjust settings and receive system updates wherever you are by phone.

System Upgrades & Replacements

If it’s time to upgrade or replace your air conditioning system, there are some key things to keep in mind. This is the time to deal with hot/cold spots in your home. Question. You have a two story home that is always 10 degree’s behind. What needs to be done?

  1. Put in a larger system
  2. Put in a smaller system
  3. Make no changes
  4. Sell the home because it can’t be fixed

Did you say ac? This is how most people would answer and even many of the commission sales people will say the same, however, they could very well be wrong. To find the correct answer, the first thing Vertex will do is a load calculation on your home. In many cases, we will find that the unit in your home is already oversized. This means that the unit is not running long enough to circulate to the hard to reach rooms. By sizing the system properly you will find that on a 90 degree day, your unit will run most of the time. This will help circulation to those hard to reach areas. Now the big question. Will this increased run time make your electric bill high? No, it won’t.

Long run times on a system can be explained using this analogy: Consider a car that is driving on the turnpike vs. a car in the city. The car on the turnpike gets better mileage because it has fewer stops and starts. You will find that your properly sized system also has fewer stops and starts and is therefore much more energy and cost efficient.

FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions

Is R-22 freon really being phased out?

Yes. The Clean Air Act of 1990 mandated a complete phase-out of R-22 and in 1996 a production cap was placed on its production. In 2004 production of R-22 was cut by 25% and the manufacture of R-22 compatible equipment will be prohibited after 2010. Production of R-22 will be banned completely in 2020. The replacement is a much more environmentally friendly chemical, R-410A.

Should I set my thermostat at a constant temperature during the summer months?

During the summer months, set your thermostat back during the day when you are not at home. We do not recommend that you go over your desired temperature more than five to ten degrees. You may want a programmable thermostat that would automatically change the setting for you once it was programmed. Many people save as much as 30% on their utility bills just by setting the temperature back when no one is at home.

What do S.E.E.R., A.F.U.E., and H.S.P.F. mean?

S.E.E.R. stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rate. A.F.U.E. stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency and H.S.P.F. stands for Heating Seasonal Performance Factor. These are the most commonly used terms to describe equipment efficiencies. The higher the number, the better.
