2024 HVAC Pricing & Installation Costs - Buying Guide - Trane® (2024)

Plan ahead with a pricing guide. More complex projects may require additional labor and costs to install correctly. Keep a lookout for key factors that affect HVAC prices.

Four Top Factors to Consider

Different climates require different heating or cooling solutions. Where you live affects which HVAC products you need as well as their efficiency. A cold, northern climate may require more heating, while a warm, southern climate may require more cooling. The wrong system can fail to keep your home comfortable and can cost you more each month on your utility bills.

Your home's size and insulation can affect your system sizing and setup. Customization and layout may increase the complexity of your HVAC installation project and result in additional labor and product costs. Larger homes may need larger units or multiple systems, or your home may have hard-to-access spots. A historic home may need retrofitting. Improving insulation can help your home better retain heated or cooled air. This can help your HVAC system use less energy to maintain the same level of comfort.

Good ductwork installation is essential for the efficient distribution of heated/cooled air. You get a higher level of comfort and spend less on monthly heating and cooling costs when your ductwork system is properly designed and installed. New ductwork can cost $3,000-$10,000 depending on system size, complexity, labor, and materials.

You may choose special systems or add features to optimize your home comfort. These can include climate zones with a ComfortLink™ II Zoning System, a Trane CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner, an energy-efficient system that saves on monthly bills, or other options.

Stages

Stages & speeds

One-stage systems are the most common, and only operate at a single speed. Your unit will turn off when your home reaches the desired temperature. An example of this is turning a light switch on and off.

Two-stage systems alternate between a low and high speed for better comfort and efficiency. Your unit will turn off when your home reaches the desired temperature. An example of this would be a light switch with two settings.

Variable speed systems vary their speed to provide the highest level of comfort and efficiency. These types of units run more continuously to provide the ideal temperature.

Modulating systems work like a dimmer light switch with a variety of adjustable settings. They automatically adjust the amount of gas that is being delivered in a furnace.

Your product runs at different stages, or levels of output, to reach your desired temperature.

Noise level

These are sound levels under perfect conditions. Higher decibels [dB(A)] means the unit is louder. Lower decibels [(dBA)] mean a system is quieter.

Relevant sound comparisons are:

  1. 80 = Garbage disposal
  2. 70 = Vacuum cleaner; upper 70s can be loud for some
  3. 60 = Background music
  4. 50 = Quiet suburb or quiet home conversation
  5. 40 = Library

Energy Savings

ENERGY STAR®

ENERGY STAR® certified products can help you save energy and protect the environment. They meet or exceed specific efficiency ratings set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These ratings often exceed the federal minimum standards.

Energy savings

The percent shows how much you may save with that unit compared to an older 10 SEER unit. The percent compares the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratings (SEER) of the old and new units. Higher SEER ratings mean your unit is more energy efficient.

We compare against a 10 SEER unit because that was the minimum allowed rating up to 2006. There’s a good chance that units being currently replaced due to old age are 10 SEER.

More energy-efficient models save you energy and monthly costs

FAQs

Many factors affect the price you’ll pay, like the climate where you live, the structure of your home, and product features based on your heating and cooling needs. That’s why each of our products show a range of prices. The price ranges you see include the cost of the unit and its installation. See key factors that affect pricing for more details.

A home heating and cooling system is a complex system that requires specialized skills to properly install and maintain. While initial costs may seem high, a properly installed Trane HVAC system could last over 15 years. With its energy-saving features, your system can potentially save you money over time.

Possibly. It depends on your specific situation. A more efficient HVAC system can save you on your heating and cooling bills for years to come. In the long run, those savings will help pay for the system. In addition, more efficient ENERGY STAR®-rated units are eligible for Federal tax credits and other incentives. And finally, by reducing your carbon footprint with a more efficient system, you’re helping the planet.

You can lower costs on a new system with local rebates, special financing or leasing offers, and tax credits. Discuss these options with your local dealer or visit our Financing, and pages to learn more.

Your AC replacement cost will vary greatly depending on the sizing of the unit and whether it’s single-stage, two-stage, or variable-speed. For instance, a 3-ton AC unit will cost more than a 4-ton AC unit. And a variable-speed Trane AC unit will cost more than a single-stage unit. The cost will also vary based on the seasonal energy efficiency ratios (SEER2) ratings of the units.

Contact your local Trane dealer for specific pricing on a new AC unit for your home.

Your furnace replacement cost will depend on the AFUE efficiency rating of the unit, the capacity, heating stages, and more. For example, a variable-speed unit will cost more than a comparably sized single-stage unit.

Contact your local Trane dealer for a detailed furnace installation quote.

The cost of a heat pump will vary based on the HSPF2 and SEER2 efficiency ratings and the sizing of the unit. Your heat pump installation cost will also depend on whether you are installing just the heat pump or a dual-fuel system with a gas furnace. In addition, the cost may be different if this is a simple heat pump replacement.

Contact your local Trane dealer for specific pricing.

Because ductless systems have such a wide range of installation possibilities, it’s hard to give a specific figure without discussing your specific needs. If you have a mini-split system with one indoor unit and an outdoor heat pump, that’s one thing. But even that cost will vary based on the heat pump and the indoor unit style you choose.

Then if you choose a multi-zone ductless system, you have another price range based on the number of indoor units and the complexity of installation. If you’re interested in a ductless system, contact your local Trane dealer for specific pricing.

To get a custom quote, contact a local dealer and schedule an at-home evaluation. Your dealer will inspect your current system and give you a quote on a system that fits your needs. Learn more and find a dealer near you with the Dealer Locator.

How long a new system lasts depends on factors like usage, climate, product quality and the installer’s skills. However, properly installed HVAC products are expected to last:

  • Air Conditioners: 12-15 years
  • Furnaces: 15-20 years
  • Heat Pumps: 15-20 years
