Trane has always been one of the best in the Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning industry. So when they release upgrades for their already excellent systems, you know it’s worth checking out. Excellent examples of this are the XV95 Gas Furnaces, which are Trane’s upgrade to their popular XV90 models.
With an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating of 96.7%, the XV95 Gas Furnaces certainly have an advantage over their predecessor. This rating is not surprising because the XV95 is a two-stage gas furnace. And that makes it much more efficient than other gas furnaces.
The Trane XV95 has a variable-speed fan motor to ensure that a consistent flow of warm air heats your entire house evenly. You can also add the optional CleanEffects air filtration system to filter allergens and common viruses out of your air.
The furnace itself is held together in a durable powder-painted casing that’s insulated to ensure a quiet performance even during sleeping hours. The product also comes with a limited 10-year warranty on internal parts, a lifetime warranty on the heat exchanger, and an optional extended warranty for labor and other parts.
Majority of the reviews on the XV95 Gas Furnaces are positive. Most users have stated that their trusted dealers would often suggest this model to replace their old ones. One user even commented that this model is one of the best investments he’s ever made and that anyone who’s considering buying a furnace shouldn’t downgrade on quality just to save some money.
One user however said that the XV95 Gas Furnaces are not powerful enough to heat an entire house. Other users commented that this model was too loud when it operated. However, one user defended this unit by saying that most of the “horror stories” about this model are overblown. Another stated that the key is to find the right firm. He said that if you get the right people to install it, the XV95 wouldn’t give you problems.
The Bottom Line
The Trane XV95 Gas Furnaces are excellent partners for any home. This model has achieved the Energy Star okay, which means that it’s backed by the Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. That, and its 96% AFUE rating, are certainly enough to ensure that if you buy this product, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth.
