"Air handler"

1.0 rating
Very Unsatisfied

Today is Sept 14, 2012: I bought the XB14 4 ton heat pump (4twb4049e) and 5 ton air handler (4tee3f66a1000a) 23 months ago. When it was 9 months old the system died….in July…..90 + degrees…..and on a weekend.A circuit board burned out in the air handler. Apparently the 10 year warranty doesn't cover "after hours" or weekends.It cost me $300 and change to have it repaired. Corresponded with Trane in Texas asking why I had to pay to have this repaired when its only 9 months old and I spent thousands and thousands of dollars for the Trane system and why don't they stand by the Trane name. It was like talking to a politician. Last month the system died again …August in Florida,hot-hot-hot…Air handler again. The bearings on the motor burned out..Dealer couldn't get a new motor for 24 hours,(could have if he wanted to but it was after hours). But I learned my lesson from last time, don't bother Trane in Texas and only have problems 8 to 5 Monday to Friday. The point of this complaint is "Why buy a Trane?". The company seems to be resting on the motto "can't stop a Trane". Well you certainly can and with a screeching halt. With the money you spend to buy a Trane you should not have these problems. The testing and quality control seems to be non-existent. I had a tossup between Trane and Carrier and I went with Trane because my old unit was a 20 + year old 4 ton trane heat pump and the Trane guy did a better presentation. Now I'm going to forever wonder if I did the right thing for my family by going with Trane. Right now I think I would have been better off with Carrier. At least I feel better by writing this and maybe give somebody some information to help make an informed decision about the purchase of a ac/heat pump system for the home.

"I love my heat pump it keeps me warm"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I have owned my heat pump for about 2 years now. I love it. What I love about it is that you cannot tell if it is on or not. I love the energy savings my bill dropped 30 percent. It keeps my family and I warm. It works great in the cold and i have never needed a repair for it. What I dislike about is nothing. Trane is a wonderful company I trust them. Nope I never had a repair. But I the old heat pump replaced do to leaks and various other problems. Yes absolutely I would recommend this brand because it was recommended to me by a worker at the store and i trusted them because they have one themselves and had no problems is what he said. So I took the chance and I love it and i would buy from them again. Thanks Trane.

"My heat pump works very well."

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

My Trane heat pump works very well in San Antonio. I have the unit maintained yearly. I will most likely buy another Trane heat pump in the future. I will most likely purchase a higher efficiency heat pump in the future. Heating and cooling is the largest part of my energy bills so efficiency is very important to me. I have owned other types of heating and cooling systems such evaporative air and air conditioning, but I most likely will stick with heat pumps. My maintenance provider says that my unit will last another four to seven years with routine maintenance. The heat pump does a good job of both heating in the winter and cooling during the summer. My heat is all electric and does not use any natural gas.

"Very satisfied with my Trane"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I have owned my heat pump for 3 years since i moved into my new house. The previous owner had installed the heat pump a month before we bought the house. I like that i have had no issues with it and that my energy bill is low. The heat pump always keeps my house nice and cool in the summer and nice and warm in the winter. I have only had to have the preventative maintenance on it. I honestly can't complain about a thing. Never had to repair anything.I would buy and recommend a Trane again.

"Wonderful Product"

5.0 rating
Very Satisfied

I own a Trane XB14 heat pump. I have own it for about three years now. I completely love it! It does and excellent job at heating my entire house even in the coldest weather. I have actually seen my utility bill go down from the usual high bills that I use to get in the middle of winter. Of course a lower utility bill makes everyone happy. I have not had a single problem with my Trane xb14 heat pump since the day I bought it. I do have a reputable company come out every year and check it out to be sure everything is working properly, but they have never found anything wrong with it. I highly recommend purchasing the XB14 heat pump. I have even recommended it to my family and friends that they should change heat pumps, even though there is nothing currently wrong with theirs.
