TRANE OR SOME OTHER BRAND FOR RELIABILITY & LONGEVITYPost created: 2012-07-03 Type of Equipment: Air Conditioner Views: 1266

I am on the verge of buying a central air conditioner. Trane is somewhat out of my reach. Not familiar with other reliable brands -- maybe less $$, I need help.

Go for Goodman or any ICP brand...don't know who ICP is?? most folks don't...well not by that name... http://www.icpusa.com/
Make sure you get a Copeland scroll compressor...the rest of it is just a metal box with tubes. The compressor is the most important part.

Stay away from TRANE (in my opinion). I have had top of the line Trane, new, installed just under 5 years ago. More maintenance calls than I have ever had with an AC unit. These Trane are junk. It just went out again and I am told I need a new expansion valve and condensor for $1,000+ in repairs.
