"Trane XE80"

2.0 rating
Somewhat Unsatisfied

Trane xe80 is one expensive furnace! It has a “hot surface direct ignition device”, which means there is no pilot light that you can light manually. a service call to diagnose why the gas burners do not light costs approx. $100. If the gas sensor device is the problem, then that will cost an additional $520! Ridiculous, considering the furnace is only 10 years old!

I have replaced the igniter on my xe80 furnace twice since owning it. The first one lasted only 2 years. Second one lasted 4 years. So far no need to replace the last one. Overall, am satisfied.
