"TRANE NIGHTMARE UPDATE"
Well,this is an update of my post of one week ago.The leaking evaporator coil in our four month old completely new Trane 15.25 SEER A/C was replaced last Friday.It is the following Thursday.I just opened the door to the air handler closet and there's green oily fluid that resembles auto anti-freeze running down the front of the air handler cabinet from inside the unit.Next step will be a consumer attorney.I can't believe I spent so much money to buy a nightmarish headache.The so-called technicians are a bunch of inept boobs to say the least.DO NOT BUY TRANE!!!

"I Love My Central Air"
We just purchased a house and this unit was installed. The place that we moved from the air ran constantly to keep the house somewhat cool. The Trane at the house we purchased keeps the house cool is very quiet and is economical. We went from a 250+ power bill to a $100 or less power bill. So far we have not had to have it worked on and we have been this is our second summer here. The only thing that I had to get use to was when it first starts up with the heat a little blue light comes on that say auxillary heat. It is only on for a couple of minutes and then it goes off. I contacted a heating and air specialist about this and they said that it was normal. I am not the type of person that likes "warning style" lights that come on. Other than that I love the unit. I would absolutely recommend a Trane to everyone! When the time comes and it needs to be replaced it will be replaced by another Trane!!

Our old Trane central air unit finally died, after 25 years of hard service! I had several bids, but the warranty, local distributor, and the service was best with Trane. Pricing was competitive too, but these units are not only very efficient, but they are also very quiet. This is a new unit this spring (2009), so time will tell on the quality, but the warranty that was included gives us peace of mind.......

We bought our house last year and it came with a 13 year old Trane A/C. Actually the entire set-up is Trane. We were conderned about the age of the system so we had a technician evaluate the system. He was very clear- while he would love to sell us a new system he said what we have looks really good and was well maintained.

"Built Like a Trane!"
New Trane A/C and condenser installed three years ago. We live in a very humid climate in Georgia, this A/C has been fantastic. No problems from day 1, has been dependable. Trane touts their patented coil design, while I can tell it's designed different. It's hard to tell if it will last longer. I do know that it's much more efficient than our last system and that this system has not once failed us despite some long and hot summers. Highly recommended.

Great system, no problems. Three years old. Had some wicked summers and this system performed flawless.

Brand new a/c ... Trane. Installed March 29, 2011. April 24, 2011, try to actually use it. IT DOESN'T WORK. It needs a new compressor. The new compressor won't be in until April 29. So, I get to try to sleep in a too warm, extremely humid house for four nights and then take another day off work. Of course, the forecast for April 29 is for temps in the 40s & 50s ... until then in the 80s with extremely high humidity. I HATE TRANE!!!!!!!!!

Specified Trane equipment when we built our home in 2001 because I "thought it was the best" - certainly the most expensive. Constant problems with the furnace and the AC. In a four year period, we had 45 service calls. Granted the service calls were covered under warranty, but somehow that does not make it better when it 97 degrees sweltering and the ac breaks down on a Friday afternoon. e.g. stopped working, coils froze up numerous times, freon disappearing out of the system. Same with the furnace-Sensing relay was replaced at least five times and it always seemed to break down when the weather is the coldest. Replaced the entire system in 2005

Replaced a Carrier that was nothing but problems. This Trane is great, three years running and its saved us money with no problems.

Bought XC95M with X15i. Along with Trane Effects and April Air Humidifier. AN expensive set-up but worth every penny. I can't imagine in my wildest dreams why some people have had issues, can only attribute to poor installs. Our last furnace lasted 5 years due to what I now have learned is poor installation. Pick a great installer first and make sure they show you how they sized the furnace. The measured every room and window. Found duct work inadequate, current furnace was undersized, along with several other issues. All resulted in premature failure of the Lennox system.
