Does Trane Sell online


Can you buy Trane furnaces online? It looks like Rheem and Ruud sell online, does anyone sell Trane? If you wanted to install Trane yourself, what would be your options?

no options other than used, trane does not sell online, and if you purchased it online, it would void any and all warranties

What about a Johnstone supply or a Home depot, has anyone had any luck buying the main furnace from the will call desk as a homeowner..


If you wanted to get "qualified" to buy the equipment, what would that take?

Home Depot doesn't and never did sell Trane equipment. While it is/was displayed there. It was a display by the local Trane dealer that had an agreement to sell through them. And pay HD a commission fee for every unit sold through through the contacts made their.

No HVAC manufacturer sells on line to the public.

Three years as an apprentice before you can take a journeyman test. Then 5 years as a journeyman before you can take the masters test. Pass the masters test then you can be a licensed HVAC contractor. In other words lots and lots of work.

Edit
That's here. Other States might be different.

What I meant to ask was: Is there any online retailer that carries Trane, who will sell their equipment (without warranty) via liftgave service and ship to a layperson DIYer.

You can't buy from Trane but if you go to ebay you will find at least one dealer who is selling the older models of Trane Heat Pumps/AC and furnaces and they are brand new items just older models.

Right, but no one offers them online like they do with Goodman and Rheem, etc. I'm not seeing much on Ebay..

Trane is picky.. The distributor here gives me a hard time when I go in to purchase parts because I won't sell just Trane. Then they ( here anyway) have territories . if there is a Trane dealer close to you they won't allow you to be a Trane dealer. I purchase all my trane parts from American standard distributor so I don't have to listen to them gripe
