Trane XL16i Air Conditioner
Single-Speed central air conditioning is what most homes in the U.S. currently have. That includes the majority of homes here in Mesa, AZ where Magic Touch Mechanical is based. Although we’ve seen a rise in popularity for both two-stage and variable speed air conditioners in recent years, single-stage units like the Trane XL16i still outsell them both. Some experts believe the simple on/off functionality and basic mechanical design of the compressors at the heart of these systems make them more reliable.

Single-Stage Trane Compressor
If you haven’t already read it on many other pages of our website or elsewhere while researching air conditioners – Trane builds a great compressor. While most of their competitors are using Copeland compressors, most Trane units including the Trane XL16i, come with Trane’s own ClimaTuff compressor*. While the Copeland compressor has earned its reputation as reliable and long-lasting, most HVAC Technicians agree the ClimaTuff is the most durable compressor ever built.
*Some Trane units are built with a Copeland compressor instead of the ClimaTuff.
