This Trane warranty offers longer terms for covered parts and provides warranty protection for specific components that malfunction due to manufacturing defects.

Trane Base Limited Warranty

All of Trane’s residential heating and cooling systems come with a Base Limited Warranty. This Trane warranty provides coverage for parts that stop working due to manufacturing defects, but it doesn’t cover labor costs. If the unit breaks down under the Base Limited Warranty, Trane will send their technician to replacement part for free (additional fees may apply such as shipping, handling, and installation costs)!
