When buying a new home heating and cooling system, it’s important to know what you want most and what combination of system and features offers the best solution for your home. The best way to get started is to remember and follow these three steps: Prepare, Research and Shop.

Step 1 Prepare

Think about your home and lifestyle

Buying a Trane heating and air conditioning system is a big decision. And a personal one. Take this time to think about your comfort needs and what features are most important for you and the climate you live in. This will help you make sure you get the right Trane system.

Things to consider:
  • air quality needs
  • energy usage
  • local climate
Ask your dealer:
  • What size HVAC system do I need?
  • What’s the most popular system in my area?
Step 2 Research

Do your homework and pick your features

Recent innovations in heating and cooling technology and energy efficiency make this a great time to upgrade your current system. Check out the latest Trane heating and air conditioning products and compare today’s features to your current system. You’ll be surprised by how much you can save.

Things to consider:
  • efficiency ratings
  • energy savings
  • heat pump or furnace
Ask your dealer:
  • How much can I save on energy?
  • What's a good SEER rating?
Step 3 Shop

Choose the system and dealer that's right for you

You want to make sure the investment you make now will last for years to come. After all, that’s why you’re choosing a Trane heating and cooling system. Review the ratings of local Trane dealers to find the right one to install your new system. Plus, don’t forget to ask about financing options, special offers and rebates, as well as tax credits.

Things to consider:
  • financing options
  • warranty
  • reviews
Ask your dealer:
  • Is it time to repair or replace?
  • Do I need a smart home thermostat?

HVAC VS AC - WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

To get what you need, it’s important to know what heating and cooling terms mean. HVAC and AC are sometimes assumed to be the same - they’re related, but different.

  • HVAC is a common abbreviation that stands for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. HVAC is a general term that refers to your entire heating and cooling system.
  • AC is short for air conditioning or air conditioner. An air conditioner is a machine that cools your home. In most homes, an air conditioner is one part of a central AC cooling system.
