What is HVAC?

HVAC stands for heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. This system is responsible for heating and cooling your home and includes products like furnaces, air conditioners, heat pumps as well as ductwork, thermostats and other home comfort controls.



Prices can vary from state to state and depend on multiple factors like the make and model you choose and even the size of your home. That’s why we recommend contacting your local Trane dealer to schedule your custom, in-home evaluation and estimate. Check out our free online estimate and recommendation tool or our pricing guide for more details.



Good news, there are many ways to save on a new Trane that you can only get when talking to your local dealer. They include local rebates, tax credits and special limited time offers. In addition, here are some of the main factors that affect the cost of a new heating and cooling system.

  • Location: Region and climate matter when finding the right system for your home and saving energy. The heating and cooling needs will differ in the hot and humid south and cold north. Also, installation costs can vary by as much as 20% depending on where you live.
  • Home Size and Construction: A large home will need a larger unit or even multiple systems to properly maintain a comfortable temperature — which of course will cost more than a smaller home. In addition, proper seals on windows and doors and the quality of your home’s insulation will affect your monthly heating and cooling costs.
  • Ductwork: Ductwork plays a crucial role in determining how comfortable your home is from room to room. When properly designed and installed, a duct system can maximize comfort and minimize energy use. If you’re installing a new HVAC system in a newly constructed home or replacing ductwork in a current home, adding ductwork will add as much as $2,000 – $3,000 to the total cost of your HVAC system.
  • Project Difficulty: If your new system is planned for a hard to reach space or if you live in a historic home that requires retrofitting, you’ll see your HVAC installation price increase. Only with an onsite evaluation will these kinds of costs be discovered.
  • Indoor Air Quality and Connected Smart Thermostats: Along with your traditional heating and cooling system, you have options to enhance the overall air quality of your home with a Trane CleanEffects™ air cleaner or add climate zones with a ComfortLink™ II Zoning System or and take advantage of the latest smart home, connected thermostat controls.


Heating and Cooling Products

  • Furnace: All furnaces consist of four main components: 1) burners that deliver and burn fuel, 2) heat exchangers, 3) a blower and 4) a flue that acts as an exhaust for gaseous by-products. A furnace burns fuel and distributes it throughout the house.
  • Air Conditioner: An air conditioner draws heat energy out of the house and transfers it to the outside air. The most common setup for residential homes is a split system, which includes an inside-the-home evaporative heat exchanger and an outside condensing unit heat exchanger.
  • Heat Pump: A heat pump is an energy-efficient option to consider if you live in a mild climate zone. It uses the outside air to heat a home in winter and cool it in summer.
  • Air Handler: An air handler most commonly works with a heat pump to circulate air throughout your home. If you’re searching for a traditional air conditioner or furnace, you won’t need an air handler as those systems have the internal parts needed to circulate air.
  • Ductless Systems: Ductless systems are a great option to heat or cool a single room in your home without the hassle of adding ductwork.
  • Thermostat: Thermostats are generally split into two classifications: traditional or connected controls. Basically connected controls can integrate with other smart home systems and learn over time how to most efficiently heat and cool your home. Traditional controls are simpler – but several offer programmable features as well.
