"Don't buy a Trane"
Every year since I have had this unit, I have had to have unit fixed. Even the ac guy went to shop and looked at my records and can not believe how many times someone has had to come and and fix unit.

"4 years old and shot to hell"
Had this Trane installed 4 years ago. It has never cooled off my house like it's supposed to. The people who installed it could never find out what was wrong with it. Thermostat set on 72 degrees during the summer but it never gets to that temp till about 9:00 P.m at night, so it runs continuously during the day. Have had other a/c techs check it out and same issue - it will not cool off the house. I have contacted Trane since I had the unit installed and all they would say is to deal with the installer, which I did for the first 2 years of ownership. Trane was not helpful at all. Just yesterday the unit stopped blowing its semi cooled air !! I checked the air temp coming out the vents and it was 80 degrees. Called an a/c company to come check it out and they say the compressor is shot to hell now!! I believe it's under warranty still but have not been able to contact Trane because of the holiday weekend. So that will have to wait until Tuesday to try and get in touch with them. Even if the compressor is covered by the warranty, the cost of labor will not be. This is ridiculous that this 4 year old unit's compressor is already done for. $6000 wasted on this pos!! 4 years of it never cooling properly and now this!! Trane is junk!!

"Nothing stops a Trane. It's REAL."
Took down 25 year old Trane last week. Replaced with new XL 1400. Never a problem. I think this is all that needs to be said.

We replaced a 12 year old Carrier unit with a recommended Trane system just two years ago. The condenser coil has gone bad and can not be replaced. The part is on back order for 2 weeks! Trane said they can't do anything about it! We live in Florida and it's 93 out! Trane customer service said it will be 5 days before a supervisor can call me back.

Unit was installed on my newly built home and I've had problems every month. I've been in the home for 18 months and have had repairmen work on two units 5 times. Now I have a valve bad and they want to charge $700 for labor. During very hot days or cold days that is when the units malfunctions. The customer service has been nil. I wouldn't buy another Trane and as soon as I can I will replace all three units in my home so that I can really save money.

"Piss poor customer service!!"
I have two trane units in my house in Southport NC. They are 9 years old. I have had them serviced every year. Recently not one but both units start leaking Freon. Every couple of months I have a problem and they need more Freon at 3 to 5 hundred dollars per service call. I discussed my options with my service contractor and he basically told me they were finished and not worth trying to fix. I called and e-mailed Trane and all they would do is send me an e-mail that my coils were out of warranted .That's just great 9 years and they are junk!!! I don't think this is a quality product and they are having a lot of issued with oxidation from using copper and aluminum. They don't work well together! I would definitely not recommend Trane. Their customer service is nonexistent!

"Trane 4 Ton 712009"
April, 2009 we replaced our underperforming air conditioner with the Trane model described above. In the first year, the installing company was here 5 times in response to the failing unit. Since then, we lost all confidence in the installing company and over the next 4 years have had 4 different companies try to get this unit to perform. Today, the most recent company tells me I have a burned out motor fan that has to be replaced. This is by far the worst investment we have ever made.

"Trane Air Conditioners"
We bought this unit approximately 6 years ago and paid $7000.00 for the system. A year ago it stopped cooling and we paid the dealer to put Freon in the system at a cost of $400.00. Then this past Februrary the unit stopped coolin and we had the coil replaced for $1000.00. The unit stopped cooling last month and they said the inside coil had to be replaced $650.00. I could have bought three Rheem systems for what I have spent on this Trane unit. I would never recommend Trane

I had a Trane A/C put in 7 years ago. It was nothing but trouble. Everything went bad including the compressor, condenser, large fan which they told me was bent (had no idea how that happened). I think every part in that outside unit was replaced. Last week, I walked into a hot house. The temperature in the house was 83 degrees. I immediately called for service. The part that starts the compressor blew and had to be replaced. Today, I had the man come for its year tuneup. Your products stinks. Now, the coil is leaking and they want over $1000 to replace it. No way. I'm getting rid of it. I had enough of your inferior product. How dare you sell a lemon. This is the worst A/C. People, do not buy a Trane.
