The cost effectiveness of Trane air conditioners varies by region and depends on a number of factors, such as available rebates, installation fees and additional components. In most instances, these items are region driven.
The purchase price of a Trane air conditioner will be affected by a particular region's dealer assessment of air conditioner requirements for the home. For instance, certain homes will have particular requirements due to seasonal temperatures of the region. These same homes will have certain installation requirements due to the type and age of the home. Other factors affecting cost effectiveness include the type of duct work that is or is not in the home, local and state regulations, and available tax credits. Finally, another important factor affecting the cost effectiveness of a Trane air conditioner is how the home is constructed. Homes that are constructed with good insulation require less air conditioning than homes that are not well insulated.
