"Trane furnace review from satisfied customer"
This furnace was in my house when I bought it, which was 6 years ago. The previous owner had purchased the furnace four years earlier. It heats up the house nicely. I do live in the South, so we don't have extremely cold winters. It has been very reliable. I have only had one problem with it and it was very inexpensive to repair. I believe this was an electrical issue which interfered with the furnace being able to cycle on and off properly. This repair was done 3 years ago and we have had no further issues with the furnace. I especially like the efficiency of this furnace. My gas bill is reasonable even in the middle of winter. I would recommend this product to a friend. If I need to replace my furnace at some point in the future, I will probably look for something similar from the same company because this furnace has been so reliable.

"We use it as an alarm clock!"
This furnace replaced a 12-year-old Lennox two-stage that had a mind of its own and left the HVAC dealers scratching their heads. I thought the Lennox was loud, but this thing sounds like a jet trying to take off. I'm on a concrete slab with the utility room centrally located. That's part of the problem. It's not isolated. The draft motor whirs away and when the inshot burners light - it's blast off! I can't complain about heat, though; it warms the house better than the old Lennox. I'm going to add some sound-deadening material to the utility room to try and quiet it down.

"Trane XR80 is Crap"
After two years in service, the circuit board and transformer failed on my Trane xr80 and thus needed to be replaced. Although under warranty, it still cost me $350 of labor and warranty service fees from an authorized Trane dealer (highway robbery at its best). My other unit is a Carrier--it's been in service for 13 years--with no major service required. The TRANE XR80 is a piece of crap!

"I Hate This Furnace"
The Trane xr 80 is a complete piece of sh**. Every single year, I have to get something fixed on this thing. I change filters every 30 days, clean the flame sensor every year and maintain it as well as can be expected but every year since it was new something goes wrong and leaves me without heat. Right now for some reason, it has blown the original transformer and 3 weeks later has now blown the second one. Why? Who knows, I will never buy another Trane product, complete and utter garbage. I wish I had got a 300 dollar Janitrol instead, so at least when it started acting up I could blame it on being cheap. STAY away from Trane!

"New Trane Furnace/Humidifier will not work"
I have a new Trane xr-80 gas Furnace and Humidifier installed July '08. Did not turn on until October. The thermostat is set on #5, which should provide 45% humidity. It will not go above 30%. The dealer's service Tecís have been here three times. The last time the rewired the Humidifier so that it would run when the fan only was on and advised to run continuously. I ran for 12 hours and the drain line was outputting 4 gallons per hour, the humidity remained at 30%.The tech verified that my humidity gauge was correct!
