Trane Air Conditioner Prices Guide 2019

How is Trane's Price Compared to Other Brands

Those of you who read our website regularly already know that Trane is a premium brand in the residential HVAC industry.The average price of preminum brands is $1000-$2000 higher than other standard brands. 

So far, Trane is the best-selling brand in U.S. and own the biggest market share. The second and third biggest are Carrier and Lennox.

Trane is a creative brand and insist on using exclusive compressors and coils. That's why it would be a little harder to get Trane's parts, compared to Carrier and Goodman who prefer to use industry standard Copland compressors and copper-aluminum coils.

Compared to Carrier, we got a few complaints that it is a little bit harder to get payouts by the Trane's warranty. Except for that, Trane is a good brand if installed properly.

American Standard is a sister brand of Trane and 90% models of both are identical apart from the logo, paint and marketing. In some cases, American Standard's pricing is little bit lower than Trane.

Humid air is harder to cool, so if high humidity is common in your area, then getting a more efficient (high SEER model) AC Units will reduce energy costs and make your home more comfortable.

The longer you intend to live in your current home, the more cost-effective a very efficient central air conditioner will be because its higher cost will be recouped when spread over more years.
