"3 Ton High Efficiency Heat Pump/HVAC"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I have owned this air conditioner for eight years. I like the user- friendly thermostat controls. The unit runs quietly and cools very well. I live in Eastern North Carolina. In North Carolina, we have very hot and humid weather in the late spring until early fall and this Trane has performed flawlessly. I am very satisfied with the unit and would recommend it to a friend. I can say there is nothing that I dislike about this HVAC unit. I have never had to do any repairs or replace any parts. I keep the filters changed as manufacturer suggests. I would definitely purchase this brand again because it has operated very well for the last eight years.

"Trane equals junk"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Trane has let us down from day one. Our unit is less than five years old and we have had multiple problems. This year alone we have had repairmen out four times because the unit was not cooling or had stopped running. Each time it was big bucks for service and repair and sometimes new freon, even though in every case the problem resulted from some part still under warranty that went bad. Now we are facing a $900 charge to replace the coil because it has a leak in it. And that is in addition to the charge to get someone out here to look at it and put new freon in it until they can get back out to do the coil replacement. The coil has a ten year warranty and already it has a leak. But what good is a warranty when it costs almost a thousand dollars to get it repaired? If they say a part is guaranteed then they should pay to replace it when it goes bad within the warranty period. And all that stuff they tell you about new units being energy efficient and saving you the cost in electricity savings. It doesn't happen. You may save a few bucks but nothing like they claim. We actually did not see any savings.



"Trane Rocks!"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I have 6 Trane A/C systems installed in my rental properties. While I didn't get top of line, I had XR13 models installed in all units 8 years ago. The prior units, also Trane, were over 24 years old. In all the years I've had Trane A/C's I have never had an issue. As an investment I give Trane an A+ rating.



"Our XR-13 failed after only 2 years!!!"

2.0 rating
Somewhat Unsatisfied

In August 2007 we had an XR13 Trane a/c unit installed. In August 2009 it failed after 2 years of service. It cost us $710 to have a txu Expansion Valve replaced. We're retired and this expense was definitely not appreciated. Needless to say, we are very disappointed in trane's quality… And the service we were able to receive wasn't the best either. We called the original installer (ars) who charged $99 to come out…only to tell us he couldn't diagnose the problem until the ice on the coil melted…which would cost an additional $147 for him to wait. Since it was Friday afternoon, and he really didn't want to wait, he was going to come back out monday (for an additional $99!!). We ended up having a local contractor come out on Saturday. The service technician didn't even mention a warranty, but I know parts are covered for the first 5 years. If the part is under warranty, how do we get reimbursed for the cost? Our neighbor just had their a/c unit replaced and we told them not to get a trane. They purchased a goodman which Consumer Reports also gives high marks to. Guess we'll live and learn.
