    the only thing i know about is a full maintenance contract. we take care of EVERYTHING. the owners only responsibility is to make sure the chiller isn't stolen...other than that, everything is on our dime.

    He is probably talking about warranty on compressors, if you don't have an account and you need to warranty a compressor, Trane will charge you $75.

    Other manufacturer's charge a fee for warranty on compressors and other parts too, I think it is BS, if the part failed, they should not be making the contractor pay a fee and then have to explain to the customer that even though the compressor is under warranty they have to pay a fee.

    Thanks guys yeah sounds like what he was talking about jay.

    He mentioned it to me but said since it's my account kinda thing and I don't work for trane, it was pointless.

    I will say that trane tech was SHARP I mean i get it all he works on is trane but thats not it he had repaired the old Dunn and bush verticals, centrifs, Mcquays as in the old Westinghouse chillers you know they designed those for a nuclear power plant and to run forever, Christler as well as all of the regular stuff he had indeed been around the block and he wasn't a jerk.

    It was nice to see a seasoned tech out there who knew what the hell he was doing.

    They gave some school disticts around these parts 10 yrs warranty on the CVHF compressors if they signed a maintenance agreement on the warrantied chiller with them. They just use that as bait to sell a contract that they wont loose on 90% of the time. Smart business if you ask me.
