"XR 13 Crap"
My 4 year old (2008) trane xr-13 broke down this Spring. The technician came over and found a leak at the evaporator coil by the furnace. The coil is aluminum and there is a pinhole leak in one of the protruding tubes. Things like this which are not subject to outside elements and which appear brand new should not have broken down so quickly. Fortunately I have a home warranty plan with my mortgage that I totally forgot I was paying $15 a month for which covers the cost of this otherwise prohibitively expensive repair job. DEAR TRANE: PARTS THAT ARE NOT SUBJECT TO OUTDOOR ELEMENTS AND WHICH DO NOT MOVE AND WHICH APPEAR BRAND NEW WITH NO VISIBLE CORROSION AND WHICH ARE ONLY 4 YEARS OLD SHOULD NOT BREAK DOWN. Also, the technician was saying how the aluminum coil was not a common material used for AC evap coils and that they are apparently are not suitable to weld for an easy repair. I don't know if this is true, but I'm glad I'm not paying for this repair.

"Trane equals junk"
Trane has let us down from day one. Our unit is less than five years old and we have had multiple problems. This year alone we have had repairmen out four times because the unit was not cooling or had stopped running. Each time it was big bucks for service and repair and sometimes new freon, even though in every case the problem resulted from some part still under warranty that went bad. Now we are facing a $900 charge to replace the coil because it has a leak in it. And that is in addition to the charge to get someone out here to look at it and put new freon in it until they can get back out to do the coil replacement. The coil has a ten year warranty and already it has a leak. But what good is a warranty when it costs almost a thousand dollars to get it repaired? If they say a part is guaranteed then they should pay to replace it when it goes bad within the warranty period. And all that stuff they tell you about new units being energy efficient and saving you the cost in electricity savings. It doesn't happen. You may save a few bucks but nothing like they claim. We actually did not see any savings.

I have 6 Trane A/C systems installed in my rental properties. While I didn't get top of line, I had XR13 models installed in all units 8 years ago. The prior units, also Trane, were over 24 years old. In all the years I've had Trane A/C's I have never had an issue. As an investment I give Trane an A+ rating.
