New Installation vs Repair

Whether you should repair your furnace or replace it is one of the most commonly asked questions of HVAC professionals. The answer of course is different for each homeowner. Age, upkeep and how much you use it can all make a difference. However, there are a few basics to keep in mind that will help you make the best decision now and going forward. 

Financial Tip: Follow The 5,000 Rule
Multiply the age of the equipment by the repair cost, and if that exceeds $5,000, then replace the unit. If less, go ahead and repair it.  

Repair Your Furnace:

  • If it’s under 15 years old.
  • If it’s performing consistently.
  • If rated 87% AFUE or higher.

Replace Your Furnace:

  • If it’s over 15 years old.
  • If requires multiple repairs in last two years.
  • If energy bills increase suddenly.
  • If rated lower than 56% AFUE.

How we got these prices

The prices featured here represent the most common average prices nationwide of each Trane product. Prices may vary in your area. Unit Cost refers to the product price only. Installed Cost includes the product price and the national average installation price. 

A note about installed cost: Installation prices may increase 20-30% depending on where you live. If your project requires new ductwork, the installation cost will increase $1,500 – $2,000. 

What factors affect furnace pricing?

Because no two homes and home heating needs are exactly the same, the total installation cost of a new furnace will be different from place to place. Here are the factors that can affect the cost of installing a new furnace. If you want a true cost estimate for your home, talk to a local pro.

Local Climate and Region

If you live in the North, the heating capacity of your furnace needs larger than a similar sized home in the South where the winters aren’t as severe. 

Home Size and Construction

A large home will need a larger capacity HVAC system or multiple systems compared to a smaller home – which will increase your total installation costs. Also, a well insulated home retains warm or cool air and may not need as large a system as a poorly insulated home.

Project Complexity   

If your furnace installation is extra challenging or requires custom parts or retrofitting, your costs will go up. Examples include installing a furnace in a hard to reach or small space or in a historic home that needs updates.


Evaluating your home’s ductwork is part of any new installation because poor ductwork can negate all the energy savings features of a new furnace or air conditioner. Adding new ductwork can add $1,000 – $5,000 to a project depending on the size of home.

"Stay away from Trane!"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

I installed the xl80 in 2004, and it ran very well for four years, with only the flame sensor needing cleaning or changes. Normal stuff. Now since 2014, it has been a nightmare. Always failing right when you need it, twice a year. The service guys come down to change a few things, it works for some time, then when I really need it again.. Dud! Now I am waiting for the repair guy again and I cannot afford a new furnace. If I could I would. I have had a Carrier in my daughters home for the past 12 years. Perfect! I have a mid efficient Lennox in my shop since 1997, perfect! I have a Bryant in my Duplexes, perfect! Trane crap! Never buy a Trane!

"Control board fire"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

After 14 years of service, the control board caught fire and smoked the entire house. The area of the relays were the most charged. Called Trane to report the fire and all they had to say is that there had never been a report of this happening before. Our furnace had been serviced each year by the installer and was found to be okay. Trane offered no assistance and did not want to investigate. Never asked for the control board either. We had numerous service people in to quote a replacement and none had ever seen this type of burning before. Our furnace was part number TDD080r936a which was a 80,000 btu two stage downflow style. We did not choose a Trane or any of its sub divisions for a replacement. Thanks goodness all we had to recover from was smoke damage.

"Review of an older furnace – Trane XL80"

4.0 rating
Somewhat Satisfied

I am satisfied with the Trane XL80. The furnace was already in the basement when we bought the house in 2009. The furnace has done its job with a few interruptions since then. Once or twice, we had to call in a repairman to look at the furnace, because it wouldn’t ignite. On a different occasion, we had to replace the mother board of the furnace, because somehow water had come into the furnace and shorted the circuit board. That was an expensive undertaking as it cost more than $600. Despite those few challenges, we’ve been satisfied with the furnace. I will likely replace the furnace with a smaller furnace as the current one is meant for a bigger house.

"Trane wreck"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Bought xl80 in 2009 to replace a carrier unit that failed after 19 years with no issues prior to that. Heat exchanger on the new xl80 failed after 20 months. Replaced with same model unit. Since then, mother board replaced, flow sensors replaced, igniter replaced (twice). This included 8 separate service calls, various calls between service company and Trane ‘technical hot line’. All these issues within the last 4 months. Unit failed again this morning. 7 flashes indicating another igniter. What a joke. Trane as been very little help (tech ‘hot line’ is actually third-party – not Trane). Never again. Trane is no longer what they once were – quality company with quality products. They are an absolute Trane wreck.

"Trane makes this landlord very happy"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

Bought XL80 for my rentals here in Ma. I have 5 rentals and three needed new furnaces, replaced prior carrier untits that were 10 years old. The new furnaces have been installed for 3 tears now and have performed as promised. Very happy, no call backs from renters. Highly recommend, anything that makes my job as landlord easier and keeps renter happy and paying their rent is great.
