I purchased a Trane furnance- central air and April air in 2004.. every winter and spring I spend hundreds to maintain this unit. Blind and Sons says I need to have a service call every 6 months to replace filter and check out equipment. This unit has not worked well ever. I had to contact Trane and they put in a new motor board after two years. Blind and sons were going to charge me $800.00. I spent over 5,000.00 in this unit in 2004. Why do I need to spend 440.00 a year to maintain it.as it wont function unless they make a service call. Blind and sons tell me I cannot purchase filters on my own..they need to come out twice a year and charge me 89.00 each for each service call the filters cost 175.00...this is not right. I'm writing to the Attorney General of Ohio.

"Very unsatisfied customer"
We bought this trane xv80 model furnace 8 years ago to replace an old Coleman unit that was coming on 30 years. We wanted to get into the higher efficiency units and cut down on heating costs. Within 2 years the flame sensor crapped out. After pleading for mercy the Heating Company replaced it on warranty, if I agreed to their annual maintenance package. Mistake #2, and I'm still waiting to see some relief on heating costs. Now another 4 years later the flame sensor craps out again, on a Sunday morning. To get the Heating Company to come out on a Sunday I have to agree to a $250.00 call out fee. The weather reports have a winter storm for cast for Monday night so what choice do I have. 5 1/2 hours later the service technician shows up and within 10 minutes the furnace is fixed and I am out another $562.00 I think I'm going back to a Coleman!

"POOR QUALITY FURNACE"
We purchased an expensive Trane Natural Gas heater in March 2006. In less than 6 years, the circuit board has gone out 3 times. We asked the dealer to look at it to see if the cause for this recurring failure could be identified. Their only response was to offer to repair it for over $500. We have had it replaced with a less expensive heater that we think will provide better reliability. We also think the new company will provide better service.

"XV80 is terrible"
I have had numerous ignitors, circuit boards, and thermocouplers replaced on my xv80 over the seven years I've had it. Love it when it works, but budget $400-500 a year to repair it. I highly recommend another product.
