Trane HVAC System Cost
When shopping for new central air equipment, understandably, price is at the forefront of your shopping initiative.
Because HVAC systems are not “plug and play,” calculating costs for these types of installations can vary greatly between units and the property they are being assembled in.
Before going over costs it’s important we mention- the most important decision you can make before purchasing your new HVAC unit, is choosing the right contractor. Why Choose a Trane Comfort Specialist?
Statistics have shown, about 25% of the money we spend in heating and cooling utility costs are due to inefficiencies in the way the HVAC system was installed.
The performance and longevity of your system will rely to a considerable degree on how the HVAC installer chooses to construct your system.

Trane HVAC System Reviews 2018
According to a recent study by AdWeek, statistics show that 81% of consumers conduct online research before making a major purchase. Stats also show that 60% of consumers will read product reviews online before choosing their product.=
When searching for reviews on HVAC systems, you will likely see more negative reviews than positive ones. In fact, Consumer Reports shows Trane as having a 1 out of 5 star review.
But here’s the problem with these reviews from Consumer Reports…
If you had a central air conditioner installed and it worked perfectly after installation, would you go online and write a positive review on the manufacturer or the HVAC installer?
Presumably, like most people, you would write the positive review on the HVAC installer, not the system manufacturer.
If your system failed prematurely, you would most likely blame the manufacturer of the equipment, not the HVAC installer.
In this circumstance, you would immediately go online and express your negative experience with your central air equipment and use the brand name as the culpable party.
What most consumers don’t understand, is that premature failure of your HVAC equipment is predominantly induced by the installing contractor.
If your equipment fails 2 years after installation, it’s probably the contractor’s fault, not the HVAC brand name.
Do you see why Consumer Reports can have a very skewed and oblique review on HVAC manufacturers?

INTERESTED IN RECEIVING AN ESTIMATE FOR A NEW HVAC SYSTEM?
Remember, the most important part isn’t the brand name you choose, but the contractor your hire to install it.
HVAC systems don’t snap together and plug in. When your contractor purchases the HVAC, it is in pieces and is uncalibrated.
Your HVAC installer really is the person at the end of the manufacturing line.
