New Trane products are only available through Trane authorized dealers, such as Lowe's. Customers may purchase used Trane heating and cooling products through online auction sites, such as eBay.
Lowe's does not sell Trane products in stores. To purchase a heating or cooling system, customers must call Lowe's or another authorized dealer to make an appointment with a specialist. The specialist then visits the customer's home to assess his needs, discuss options and provide cost estimates, which may include financing options.
To find a local dealer, visit the Trane website. Under the Buying a Trane menu, shoppers can click Find a Dealer. This page allows the shopper to browse dealers by geographic location. These dealers must meet Trane standards before being allowed to sell, install and service Trane products.
Those looking to save money can buy a used Trane heating or air conditioning system on eBay. However, the cost of the unit is only one aspect of the total cost of purchasing Trane products. Ducts, a thermostat and installation may also be necessary. Additionally, used products may not be under warranty.
Trane began producing heating systems in Wisconsin more 100 years ago. Since then, the company has expanded operations to over 100 countries and employs more than 29,000 people, as of February 2015.
