"Trane makes this landlord very happy"
Bought XL80 for my rentals here in Ma. I have 5 rentals and three needed new furnances, replaced prior carrier untits that were 10 years old. The new furnances have been installed for 3 tears now and have performed as promised. Very happy, no call backs from renters. Highly recommend, anything that makes my job as landlord easier and keeps renter happy and paying their rent is great.

Trane xl 80 mid efficiency, two stage. Researched the heck out of furnaces and found Trane makes Sears house brand...so sounded great. One week after installation, the mother board went down. No problem, part but not service call covered. Cost :90 bucks. Ten months later, flame sensor misbehaving; service call 90 bucks again. Few more months of summer and the appliance works perfectly! Oh right, no need to turn on cause its summer! Last year, first cold snap...furnace will not ignite beyond initial stage one blow ( 3 minutes) so we call service tech for yet another 90 bucks. April, some cheap made in Mexico wire snaps costing me another 90 buck service call and 20 dollars in parts. Just last night, return from movie to cold house...wife curses...oldest son kicks furnace. I call Trane local rep...no response. I call all Trane service reps...no answer. Inside temp is now 52 degrees; outside temp is 12 degrees. Not very pleased and would suggest Trane should be more responsive to customer inquiries as all my calls have been met with stoney silence. Nice work TRANE. I look forward to telling everyone I know what a poor product you make.

New Home: Purchased a Trane 100,000 btu 92% Two Stage furnace model tux2c100a9482a, the humidity when it was turned on created a humidity level of 27%(which started to pull all the wood appart). We added a top of the line automatic humidifier that generates an average humidity of 34%. I have to run a portable unit to get the humidity to get the humidty up. Still looking for the answere of why the humidity is low after many calls to Andy's Statewide Installers.
