How Do Trane HVAC Competitors Compare to Other Systems?

Our trained HVAC professionals agree that when it comes down to it, Trane outperforms the competition across the board. From long-lasting value to performance to customer service, Trane HVAC system benefits often outweigh the benefits of competitors, like Goodman or Carrier. Below, we’ll explore how Trane measures up to some of the top competitors.

Goodman HVAC vs. Trane HVAC

Goodman and Trane are both well-known brands in the HVAC industry. Both brands have a wide range of HVAC products, but there are some differences between the two brands that you may want to consider when choosing between them:


Like we said, it’s hard to stop a Trane, because their quality is top-notch. Trane is known for their durable and reliable HVAC systems. While Goodman’s HVAC units may be lower in price, Trane’s systems are renowned for being higher in quality, as reflected in their prices.

 Energy Efficiency

Both Trane and Goodman offer high-efficiency HVAC systems, but Trane tends to have a wider range of options with energy efficiency. Trane is reputable for being innovative with energy-saving technology.

 Customer Service

Trane is often considered to have better overall customer support than Goodman.

Carrier HVAC vs Trane HVAC

Carrier and Trane are incredibly popular in the HVAC industry, but are distinct in how they approach quality and efficiency. Here are some key differences to consider when comparing Carrier and Trane HVAC systems:


Like in our comparison between Trane and Goodman products, Trane is generally considered to be a higher-end brand with more premium features and a reputation for being highly reliable. While Carrier is generally priced lower than Trane (depending on the system you choose), Trane is largely known for its reliability and durability.

 Energy Efficiency

Both Carrier and Trane offer energy-efficient HVAC systems, but Trane has a wider range of products with high SEER ratings and is highly innovative with their energy-saving technology, finding ways to maximize efficiency without forsaking comfort.

 Smart Technology

While Carrier’s smart technology partners with Amazon’s Alexa and comes in several model types, Trane offers smart technology that partners with Google Home or Alexa and has different price models, offering more cost flexibility.


Trane is well known for providing the longest warrant terms out of other furnace manufacturers. Depending on the model, Trane offers both limited and long term warranties, some lasting up to a lifetime. On the other hand, Carrier only offers a limited warranty of 10 years on parts and compressors, with longer warranties only available through third-party companies.

FAQ: Trane HVAC Systems
Maintenance & Repair
How long does a Trane HVAC system last?

On average, a well-maintained Trane HVAC system can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years or more, so it’s important to stay on top of regular maintenance, such as changing air filters, cleaning coils, and checking refrigerant levels. These factors help prolong the life of your Trane unit. At Mountain Heating and Cooling, our HVAC technicians are Trane-certified, so you know you have experts taking care of your HVAC needs. Learn more about our HVAC maintenance services.

How often should a Trane HVAC system be maintained?

Routine HVAC maintenance is key to prolonging the life of your unit, so you should have your Trane HVAC system maintained by a trained professional at least two times a year. It’s best to schedule these maintenance services before the start of the heavier cooling and heating seasons—like summer and winter—to ensure that the system is ready to handle the upcoming workload. Regular HVAC maintenance service not only helps extend the longevity of your unit but can also help improve indoor air quality, lower energy bills, and prevent costly breakdowns. Check out our tips for how to keep your HVAC heating and cooling running smoothly.

How do you know when your Trane HVAC needs maintenance?

Sometimes, maintenance is unavoidable, even with the best HVAC units. If your Trane heater is not working or the cooling system is acting irregularly, getting it looked at by a Trane-certified professional is key to ensuring your unit gets back to optimal performance as quickly as possible. Here are a few signs that your HVAC system might need maintenance:

  • Poor air quality – If you notice an increase in dust or dirt in your home’s air, it may be a sign that your Trane HVAC system’s filters need to be changed or that the system needs to be cleaned.
  • Reduced airflow – A decrease in the airflow from your unit could be due to a clogged filter or a problem with the system’s blower.
  • Increased energy bills – If your energy bills increase without a corresponding change in usage, it may be due to an issue with your Trane system’s efficiency.

Strange noises – If unusual noises are coming from your Trane HVAC system, such as banging, clanking, or grinding sounds, it may be a sign that something is wrong and needs to be addressed.

How much does a Trane HVAC repair cost?

The cost of a Trane HVAC repair varies depending on the nature and extent of the repair needed. Some factors that play into the cost of repairing a Trane HVAC system may include the type of repair needed, the age of the system, your location, and the extent of repairs needed. Typically, the cost of minor repairs can range from $75-$200, but more significant repairs can cost anywhere from $500 to $2,000 or more. Trane HVAC systems include 10 year equipment warranties available, so if your system is still under warranty, the repair cost may be partially or fully covered by the manufacturer.

The best way to determine the cost of repairing your Trane HVAC system is to contact a Trane-certified technician to diagnose the issue and provide you with an accurate estimate. At Mountain Heating and Cooling, our technicians are Trane-certified, and we always give free estimates to assess and value the extent of repairs. For your free estimate, reach out to us today.

What is the best time of year to buy an HVAC system?

The best time of year to buy an HVAC system is typically during the off-season. In Montana, there is generally less demand for heating and cooling services during the spring and fall months, as homeowners are not relying as heavily on their HVAC systems. This means that HVAC technicians often have more availability to help you select a new HVAC system and install it, and you have time to do some research into different HVAC systems and your HVAC needs. Whether you are in need of AC installation, a furnace installation, or both, our team can help you select the best system for your needs. Reach out to us today to schedule an appointment.
