"Trane heat pump"
Bought a new house with a Trane. The first year it froze up. No one, including Trane can fix the thing. I have had multiple servicing firms come out and look at it. I would not buy a new Trane and I think that Trane would guarantee their products better.

"TRANE - reputation undeserved!"
Bought a 5 year-old house (now 7 years old) with a Trane heat pump (Actually 2 - 1 upstairs, 1 downstairs). The first winter here the upstairs unit wouldn't heat the house and the monthly electric bill was >$500. The repairperson said the unit was kicking into emergency heat mode improperly and we were lucky it didn't burn out (or burn us up!) Our second summer here and the downstairs unit won't keep the downstairs cool. Repairman says the "valves are shot" and the entire unit needs to be replaced - "...they don't usually fail this fast" - recommends new $9k Trane unit - hah! Wouldn't install another Trane if you paid me.

Absolutely the worst purchase I have ever made. This 16 sear 3 ton unit is on the third compressor in just 28 months and the entire unit has never performed right from day one and I cant find a Trane tech that can fix it or even tell me what is wrong with it.

We own two units, and in 19 years, we've only had to replace a switch.

My Trane Heat Pump has been the worst mechanical product I have ever owned in my entire 52 years. I wouldn't even consider a Trane product for future purchase. Our local grade school chidren could build a better product out of Leggo's.

"This Unit is Still Going Strong"
This unit is still going strong after 16 years of service (xe1000). The neighbor's Trane still works well after 15 years. The only issue I had with the unit was a starting capacitor that went bad at year 8 - an $80 repair including the technician's time.
