You deserve to be comfortable in your home. If you’re looking to control your comfort, then let me introduce you to the Trane XC80 gas furnace. In this video we’ll go over the features, cost, and discuss who might benefit most from this system.

Hi I’m Luke from Fire & Ice. Each year we work with hundreds of Central Ohio residents to customize a heating and cooling solution that meets their comfort needs. One of the most popular solutions is the Trane XC80 because it’s the “right” answer for many of our customers.

In this video we’re going to cover:

  • What are the features of the Trane XC80?
  • What is the Efficiency Rating for the XC80?
  • Who’s the right fit for this furnace?
  • How much does the XC80 cost?
  • And finally, what to do next.

By the end of this video, you’ll know if the Trane XC80 gas furnace is right for you.

What are the features of the Trane XC80?

Let’s begin and take a look at some of the features of the Trane XC80 furnace. First is its two-stage gas valve.  When the XC80 first kicks on, it will start in its lower capacity, using about 60 to 70% of its full capacity. If more heat is needed, it will then enter its second stage, using 100% of its capacity. The main benefit of this technology is that it won’t need as much fuel to maintain the temperature in your home.

Speaking of control, the XC80 also comes with Trane ComfortLink communicating technology. This technology learns and adapts to your lifestyle and constantly calibrates itself to precisely deliver the comfort you want. In fact, when the Trane XC80 is paired with other communicating equipment the temperature in your home can be kept with  a half degree of your thermostat, and at an optimal humidity level. Talk about true comfort!

Lastly, is its variable-speed blower motor. A variable speed motor is a lot like cruise control in your car. When more oomph is needed, the motor speeds up and slows down accordingly to maintain the temperature in your home. Furnaces with variable speed motor are often quieter, more energy efficient, and deliver more consistently even temperatures all year long.

What is the Efficiency Rating for the XC80?

The Trane XC80’s is considered a standard efficiency furnace, with an AFUE efficiency rating of 80%. This means up to 80% of the fuel used by the furnace goes directly towards heating your home, with the other 20% exhausted as waste. You can also think of it in terms of money. For every dollar spent on fuel, up to 80 cents goes towards heating your home with the remainder being exhausted out of your flue.

Who is Trane XC80 a good fit for?

You may be asking yourself, is the Trane XC80 right for me? That all depends on how committed you are to the communicating technology. The Trane XC80, by itself, can certainly address hot and cold spots and uneven temperatures thanks to its two-stage gas valve and variable speed blower. However, the XC80 can do so much more when it’s working alongside other communicating equipment.

The Trane XC80 provides the most benefits to homeowners who already have or plan on investing in other communicating equipment. In order to capitalize on everything, the XC80 has to offer, you will need a thermostat and air conditioner or heat pump with communicating capabilities.

Now, I will say the Trane XC80 isn’t for everyone. If you’re happy with the temperatures inside your home during the winter and humidity levels in the summer, and don’t feel communicating technology is worth the investment, then the Trane XC80 is likely not for you. Simply put, there are other Trane products worth considering if your outdoor unit doesn’t have communicating capability and you’re not interested in upgrading it.

How much does Trane XC80 cost?

Now let’s talk about the cost. The Trane XC80 furnace is a bit of a special case, since to get the most benefit from the system it needs to be paired with other communicating equipment. The Trane XC80 furnace costs between $4,000 and $5,500. For comparison, a new furnace replacement can range between $3,000 to $7,600 making the Trane XC80 a reliable gas furnace that can fit most budgets.

However, to add a communicating air conditioner or heat pump expect to pay anywhere between $8,000 and $13,000. At Fire and Ice all of our prices include the cost of equipment, labor, and all that is needed for a proper installation.

There are several factors that can affect the price of a new furnace installation, such as: The size of the home, filters or other indoor air quality products, the location of the system, and any changes that may be needed during installation. There are no one-size-fits-all solutions when it comes to HVAC.
