Homeowners concerned about lowering their heating bills without sacrificing heating comfort have made the Trane Two-Stage XV90i gas furnace one of the most popular in the Trane lineup. Performance and fuel efficiency meet value, and you win both ways. Leith from Eden Prairie, Minnesota offers us his Trane Two-Stage XV90i gas price to add to our growing list of HVAC prices that allow you to compare and contrast models and prices. Here’s Leith’s letter.
“I’m sitting here enjoying the warmth of our new Trane Two-Stage XV90i furnace. It’s so quiet I don’t know its running. The old furnace needed the thermocouple replaced last month and this month the wiring on the blower motor fried. Last week when the blower motor itself started making noise like a squealing pig I figured that’s enough. The repair bills were adding up and that doesn’t make sense for a 17 y.o. furnace. She gave us her best through some pretty tough winters but she’d seen enough.
I called out Trane, Carrier and Rheem guys to give me gas furnace prices. Our goal was to significantly cut fuel bills by increasing efficiency from the 77% we were getting to at least 90%. I’ve done enough research on this site to know what to expect price-wise and I had a figure in mind I was willing to spend. The Carrier guy seemed stuck on an Infinity – which sounds awesome – but he couldn’t make the numbers work in terms of cost. He chuckled at my offer. The Rheem salesman couldn’t get the efficiency/cost factor together either. The Trane sales rep was the most informative and helpful. He worked with me to find the right furnace at the right price, and I was sold.
We had the Trane Two-Stage XV90i installed 2 days ago and it’s awesome. It’s very quiet and the temperature is consistent everywhere in the house, something we didn’t always get with the old furnace. Plus, the multi-speed blower eliminates blasts of cold air we used to get when the fan would kick on high before the air in the furnace was hot – we called it the indoor wind-chill. We should have pulled the plug on the old furnace years ago. Here’re the damages for the new Trane:
