Understand Trane’s Warranty Options

Trane offers two main warranty types for their AC units:

Base Limited Warranty

  • This warranty applies to units that are not registered or were registered more than 60 days after installation.
  • It covers parts that might fail due to manufacturer defect but does not cover the labor to repair them.
  • The warranty lasts for 5 years, but the length of coverage may change depending on the product.

Registered Limited Warranty

  • This warranty extends the term of your warranty if your product is registered within 60 days of installation.
  • It covers the cost of parts that might fail due to manufacturer defect but not the labor to repair them.
  • In most cases, this warranty lasts for 10 years, but the length of coverage may change depending on the product.

Optional Extended Warranty

In addition to the Base Limited Warranty and Registered Limited Warranty, Trane offers an Optional Extended Warranty. This warranty covers parts that fail due to manufacturer defect and may also cover the cost of labor to fix them, depending on the specific Optional Extended Warranty you purchase. Contact your local Trane dealer to learn about the available options and pricing.

Warranty Transfer

If you’re preparing to sell your home, you may be able to transfer your Registered Limited Warranty to the new homeowner. This can make your home more attractive to potential buyers. To successfully transfer the warranty, you’ll need to complete the transfer within 90 days of the home sale/purchase and pay a one-time transfer fee of $99 with a credit card.
