    I have to agree with everyone else who owns a trane furnace. Niothing beats a Trane! We have had an trane XC furnace for several years with little to no problems.

    As long as you get annual checkups like the heating guy recommends, no problems at all!

    Repaced a Carrier set-up with this fiurnance. The carrier unit only lasted 8 years. Had the Trane unit all winter and have seen a 30% drop in our gas bill. Its almost completely silent, which took a while to get used too. No big temperature swings, kept the house nice temperature consistant despite a hard winter in Ohio. I have nothing to complain about.

    what model do you have? the XC95m or XC80. and would you happen to know the cost of the unit?

    I purchased the Trane XC95M in june 2011 and loved it, I had always heard that Trane is the best.
    However lately I have had ignition problems and the dealer is hakving issues sorting it out, I am getting an error 10 on the thermostat and the furnace will not reset.

    Replaced a 20+ year old furnace with at trane XC95M 80K btu modulating furnace in Dec 2011. Furnace ran without problems until Nov 2012 when an ignitor failed. This has happened four more times since then with the most recent yesterday, 14Jan14. Each time the ignitor was replaced and twice the computer was replaced. When I questioned the technician as to the frequency of failures, I was told that the ignitors run on 80 vac and sometimes the computer sends the ignitor a 120 vac signal. I was told that the ignitor will accept that for awhile and then burn out. If this is a problem why isn’t there a recall on this computer or on the ignitor? Either put in an ignitor that operates on 120vac or a new module in the computer that regulates a positive 80 vac signal to the ingnitor. These incidents always happen on the coldest days of the winter and usually when we have guests. I am not satisfied with the performance of this control system and when the technicians have no answer, I am not satisfied with the manner in which trane offers service solutions to the field force. They don’t have any problem charging premium prices for the equipment. I would be interested to hear how common of a problem this is. “Nothing stops a trane”, well a burned out ignitor will stop it in a heart beat !!!

      I am searching the same issue and found your post. I have the same issue, and you shed more light to the why. ERR 22.01 on my XC95M unit. Installed on Dec 2012, I have had ignitors replaced Dec 2013, March 2013, and now I arrive at my cabin August 2014 to find the problem again.

      Let me know how your issue has progressed with Trane.

      Yeah a burned out ignitor (error 10) also stopped my Trane. So, apparently “somethings” do stop a Trane. XC95 Trane system stopped by an ignitor- three years old. I replaced a “contractor grade” furnace after 22 years because I did not want to deal with a furnace issue on the coldest night of the year. So I got to deal with a failed XC95 furnace issue instead when it was 5 deg- 2nd coldest night of the year in Colorado. Sure glad I spent that money for the peace of mind! Sleeping so much better now- with one eye open. Hunting for replacement ignitors so the next one isn’t $100 for service call and $100 for labor to screw in 5 screws on a $50 part. Geez.
