If you’re looking for a quiet, reliable furnace that is easier on your budget, the Trane XV80 might be the system for you. In this video, we’ll break down the XV80’s features and go over who might benefit most from this furnace.

Hi I’m Bryan from Fire & Ice. We’ve talked with thousands of customers in the Central Ohio area and one of the biggest questions we’re asked is “how can I make my home more comfortable without breaking the bank?” One of the most popular solutions is the Trane XV80 gas furnace. In this video we’re going to cover:

  •  What are the features of the Trane XV80?
  • What is the Efficiency Rating for the XV80?
  • How much does the XV80 cost?
  • Who’s the right fit for this furnace?
  • And finally, what to do next.

By the end of this video you’ll know if the Trane XV80 furnace is right for you and your home.

What are the features of the Trane XV80?

Let’s dive right in and look into the features of the Trane XV80. First off, is its two-stage gas valve making it a mid-range furnace. A two-stage gas valve allows your furnace to operate in two capacities, at 100% and at a lower capacity between 60 and 70% unlike a single-stage furnace where it is either on or off. This allows you to have more control over the temperature in your home at a lower initial cost than with modulating furnaces.

Next, is its variable speed motor. Like the gas valve, the variable-speed blower gives you more control over the overall circulation of the air in your home giving you added comfort and better air circulation year-round.

Lastly, is its large, insulated cabinet. The Trane XV80 40” insulated cabinet allows for quieter operation and helps decrease static pressure or airflow resistance.

What is the Efficiency Rating for the XV80?

Furnaces are split into two categories based on their efficiency rating: standard or high efficiency. This efficiency is measured by an AFUE rating or (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) and is the percentage of fuel that goes towards heating your home. The Trane XV80’s is considered a standard efficiency furnace with an 80% efficiency rating. This means 80% of the fuel that is used goes towards heating the home, the other 20% is exhausted as waste.

High-efficiency gas furnaces, on the other hand, have an AFUE rating from 90% and can exceed 98%. To achieve this higher efficiency, direct venting is required to bring fresh air into the system and to exhaust waste gases, requiring additional piping to be run from your furnace through the side of your house to the outside.

The Trane XV80 furnace is the best furnace on the market when a high efficiency furnace is not practical, and you still want reliable comfort levels.

 How much does Trane XV80 cost?

Now for the burning cost question, “what does it cost” question. The Trane XV80 furnace can cost between $4,200 and $4,900. This price includes the cost of equipment, labor, and any additional fees. For comparison, a new furnace replacement can range between $3,000 to $7,600 making the Trane XV80 a reliable, mid-range option.

Factors that can change the price include:

  • Size of the home
  • filters or other indoor air quality products
  • the location of where the installation will occur
  • and if you need to make changes to your current system.

These factors create a range in price for both the furnace or a full system installation.

Who is Trane XV80 a good fit for?

Now you may be wondering, is the Trane XV80 right for me? If you are a homeowner looking to relace your current gas furnace and make your home more comfortable, the Trane XV80 could be right for you.

The XV80 also works well for many mid-sized budgets. And thanks to its two-stage gas valve and variable speed motor this furnace can eliminate hot and cold spots in your whole home. A perfect solution for split-level and multi-story homes.

However, due to its 40-inch cabinet size a clearance of at least 7 feet is needed to properly install this system in your home. Additionally, the Trane XV80 will be able to work along side any non-communicating air conditioner. Check with your HVAC partner to confirm that your current air conditioner is compatible.
