Trane extended warranty


I just put a new 13 seer. R-410a Trane heat pump (over and under package unit) on a rental here in Phoenix. It was a very easy swap out for the 20 year old Trane roof top heat pump. There seems to be some confusion on the warranty. I called Trane and they registered the unit and played dumb on the warranty. I paid $2900 cash including tax and all for the new unit. My sales slip says 5 years on everything including labor, and ten years on the compressor. You can't even find anything like the one I bought unless you go to the American Standard website. They have a package heat pump that appears to be the unit I bought. I called a reputable dealer for Trane and they told me that to insure everything including labor, it would be $700. Do you think it would be possible to cut a deal for that warranty with the young guy that sold it to me for $350. or so? The warranty on the look alike American Standard heat pump is one year labor and five years on parts. That is what the Trane company told me the warranty is on the one I bought. The Trane corporation was not terribly helpful or reassuring. Does the young guy that sold me this thing have a big mark-up in the Trane warranty to share with me?

    Yeh, sure. He's good for it. Give him your money now. Call him in 9 years for a free compressor. You'll see.

    Yes, absolutely. He has largess to spread around like nobody's business. Just ask him for some.

I can't help it if you didn't pay enough.

I thought I got a pretty good deal but it was a simple install. I didn't need a new thermostat or any electrical work,duct work, or stand. I needed a crane truck was about all. I looked at the internet Arizona Registrar of contracters and see that the guy lost his contractor's license the Friday before I had him put the new unit in three days later on Monday. Seems he didn't pay his $3500. bond. The Trane company is sending out the minimal warranty the unit came with and I'll buy the 10 year parts and labor from another dealer. I still will be happy with the deal. That would bring the price to $3600. or $360./year or it may live beyond that. Tenant's happy and so am I. I do feel sorry for the kid who lost his business.

Is that the guy that lost his license for mixing Nitroglycerin with the cooling gases?

He lost his business because he didn't charge enough.
