Original review: Jan. 12, 2022

My understanding of the failure (with my approximately two-year old system) was caused by a defect that should have been caught via quality control procedures at the factory where it was assembled. I am told that a system this young should not have had this type of coil issue and mine did because inadequate solder (or similar compound) was used when the coil was factory assembled. This defect was obvious to the service technician who repaired the system who also believed Trane would acknowledge and stand behind this as the manufacturing defect it was.

I tried to work this out with Trane and asked them to reimburse me for labor and $400+ coolant - total bill was $1,074. They offered me $400. In a communication from a company representative, it was stated, "Please be aware that our warranty covers the functional parts that we manufacture because we are responsible for the quality of those parts...." and I must take issue with this statement as false.

Noticed one of our units wasn't heating the way it should. After a Trane authorized repair center showed up and diagnosed the problem, they said the coil was leaking. All of the refrigerant was apparently gone, and it needs a new coil. Now this is deep inside the unit apparently (not like it got bumped), and while the warranty covers the part the labor and new refrigerant alone is almost $2000.00. This is ridiculous for a unit that is only 4 and a half years old.

    I purchased my home early this year and the house is less than 5 years old with two Trane Air Conditioner units. I received a 1-year buyer's warranty for the house as part of the sales contract. As the summer heat started, we noticed the air conditioners were not working well. We contacted the warranty company for service. After a couple of checks including freon refill, they finally found out that there is a leakage in the main unit and the evaporator coil needs to be replaced.

    They said the unit is still under manufacturer warranty and asked me to directly contact Trane to receive a new evaporator coil and the warranty company agreed to follow up with the labor. I reached out to Trane but they said my warranty expired because I had to contact them within 90 days of purchasing the house. I have explained to them that I was never informed by anyone about this requirement, and I even did not know the brand of my air conditioner until there was a problem with it, but they did not accept. That is totally unreasonable, how can a home buyer know about this rule? This is just a way for them to get away from their warranty duties. I hope this review will help some people to know about this rule so that they can reach out to transfer the warranty within 90 days.

    My house is 4 years old. The builder installed a Trane AC heat pump unit. The AC coil needs replacement for the 4th time. Totally unacceptable!! After numerous contacts with Trane they refuse to replace the coil.

    I had a contractor installed a new furnace yesterday, went to Trane's website today to complete the registration, its website does not allow me to enter series number or model number. The registration page design is a piece of junk. So I called customer service instead, it is funny that the rep asked me to repeat my address, phone number, model number, serial number, email address ... everything 2 to 3 times. I spent ONE hour to complete the registration, it should take 5 minutes to do this online with other company's products.

    2 years ago when it was time to replace the 3 units that cool my house, my AC guy recommended Trane. Unfortunately, since I had a 17 year relationship with the company, I trusted their recommendation to replace with Trane. What a mistake. Dropped that company. On the evening of installation, I lost air conditioning to one section of my home. The leaking coil/ freon, etc.etc. as listed in many Trane complaints on the site. The issue happened time and again and after my nearly $20,000 investment, I went weeks without air. Now another unit is broken, something about a communication board replacement and parts that are not readily available. We are estimating a week or whenever.. to have air conditioning on my second floor. Please know I am in Florida and AC is very important.

    When I put my system in 2 years ago, it was my hope that ongoing air conditioning issues would be minimized. Not with Trane products. I have had issues roughly every 3 months since I put them in. Today, I am debating ripping out all 3 units after 2 years and going with another brand, Carrier perhaps. I will look into any possible legal means to hold the company accountable. I don't have any hope that I will have any luck. I cannot continue to take time off of work to meet with my air conditioning service company to fix my Trane products. Also, I am a couple of thousand in on uncovered repairs. Given what I read in Trane reviews online and my own Trane experience. DO NOT BUY TRANE PRODUCTS!

    I was sold a Trane air conditioning unit after my old system (Ruud) of 21 yrs was just worn out. In the 18 months since the warranty expired, I have had to spend nearly as much on repairs as the unit cost to begin with. Both repairs were due to electric fan motor failures and costs were well over a thousand dollars each time.. Now the unit is 2 yrs out of warranty and developed a leak at the drain due to the drip pan in the bottom of the unit being completely rotted out.. And what makes matters worse is that when Island air conditioning in Delray Beach FL installed this unit, they didn't bother to connect the drainage system properly resulting in inside ceiling damage.. This company should be ashamed of unloading such GARBAGE on poor unsuspecting consumers!!

    I had my Trane XL90 furnace installed by a Trane authorized HVAC dealer many years ago. I bought it specifically because they had (still say they do) a lifetime guarantee on the heat exchanger. Something that I knew at the time was a weak point for many brands. Years later my furnace started to fail and I'm certain now that I was experiencing high levels of CO in my house. (damp windows) I attempted to patch/seal the holes at the end of the bottom of the heat exchangers. It is a cooler area of the heat exchanger and I imagine condensation was an issues that ultimately created holes and furnace ignition issues from the improper drafting of exhaust gases into my house. For almost two years, I tried to keep it working. I complained to the dealer more than once and they said to contact Trane. I did!

    On SIX occasions, they basically denied having to do anything for me. They instructed me to contact the dealer and they could likely get me a $250 rebate off a new one. But these crooks know that this rebate is the same as what they were offering everyone. The heat exchanger came with a lifetime warranty, but labor was not included. They kept giving me the excuse that this heat exchanger was no longer available. True, but I bought a lifetime warranty, not a whenever the parts run out warranty. Typically a heat exchanger is an $800 to $900 part; however, they refused to compensate me or offer that amount as a rebate/credit off the new XL90 or a similar models. I ended up with a very nice and efficient Goodman. In talking to several other people about Goodman, they always seem to honor their warranties. TRANE WILL NOT! They are LIARS ! Nothing RUNS away from their warranty like a Trane!

    Awful company with awful customer service. It's been 4 months without AC and they are impossible to get a hold of to get the piece to repair it. Then they tell you 3-4 weeks and after 4 weeks they tell you it's another 2 weeks to get the piece and to stop calling them. If you have problems with your AC expect them to fix it just in time for winter. It's a surprise they're still around with all these negative reviews.

    Our unit isn't 2 years old yet and the coil is leaking. They have no idea when the warranty part will be in. We paid $554 to have them come out, they tried to fix it to hold it over until the parts came in but it lasted 24 hours. Now we have to pay for a part that isn't covered under the warranty. The slogan Nothing stops a Trane is true. A Trane stops a Trane HVAC. Very dissatisfied. We went with Trane thinking it would last longer and have no problems.
