When compared to the Trane XB90, the XR95 is more expensive. The XR95 is however more energy-efficient, which makes it a better choice, according to the Trane official website. This particular model has a 95-percent AFUE rating, and carries an Energy Star label. The unit is tested multiple times for durability and long-lasting performance. Consumers can expect to save energy and spend less on heating bills.

The unit also receives favorable reviews on Web HVAC, especially regarding pricing and affordability. The downside however is that the indoor climate control on the XR95 is not as good as some of the 95-percent AFUE furnaces on the market. This is because the unit uses a single-stage burner, causing slight temperature fluctuations of two to three degrees when running the unit.

A Trane Clean Effects accessory can be added to this system. This is an advanced air filtration system that eliminates pollen, dust and other irritants. The accessory is ideal for households with small children, the elderly or people suffering from respiratory illness.
