With Excellent Technology and A Highly Trained Workforce
At Trane, they don’t just build our products. They own patents on them. And they don’t just test our products. They push them to the extreme, because if it can’t make it through their torturous testing, you’ll never see it in your home.
Built by Trane
Every Trane product is designed down to every detail and rigorously tested for reliability and durability. While other manufacturers build their products from the same “pool” of parts available to anyone, they make it a point to be uniquely better, innovative and always looking to the future. To do that, Trane has to design, build, test, and rebuild some of their own parts. Trane knows they work because they push them well beyond the industry standards, making sure they match the reliability people expect when they own a Trane. From the durable Climatuff® compressor to the exclusive Spine Fin™ coil to the revolutionary Hyperion™ air handler—and a number of other patented innovations—when you own a Trane, you’re getting more than reliable comfort and you’re getting it year after year.
Trane has 1500 patents and counting, and they have their engineers, throughout their history, to thank for that kind of advancement and success. Trane people are respected industry-wide for their skills and performance in designing, manufacturing and marketing commercial and residential systems and for providing customers with the support they need.
The customer satisfaction ratings of 93 percent consistently earned by our Trane residential systems are supported by a nationwide network of 10,000 contractors and dealers in the U.S. as well as 100 independent and company-owned distributors.
In a tradition that goes back to Trane's early days, they are constantly upgrading the skills of already highly trained people to stay on top of emerging technical priorities. That’s why Trane has more than 680 engineers certified as Accredited Professionals under the U.S. Green Building Council’s prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program. We’re also proud that Trane has 40 engineers specializing in environmental issues and we look forward to their doubling the number of both groups of skilled professionals over the next five years.
Tested to Extremes
At the SEET lab in Tyler, Texas—which stands for Systems Extreme Environmental Test—Trane products are put through 16 weeks of bone-chilling cold and blistering heat, in repeating two-week sessions. Some units endure over 2,600 hours of continuous testing, including a full week of salt spray to monitor corrosion resistance. Our technicians have tried to break our Climatuff® compressor over 900 ways, which has produced a saying at Trane, if a product doesn’t make it through our test lab it doesn’t get made. By putting our heating and cooling units through 5 years worth of wear and tear in the matter of a few months, we reinforce our philosophy of making products you can rely on for years and years. It’s hard to stop a Trane isn’t just a tagline…it’s been proven.
Backed by Experts
Every manufacturer will say that their products are the best, but when industry experts give a tip of the hat to your work, that’s backing it up with proof. Popular Mechanics dubbed the Trane ComfortLink™ II control as one of The Year’s Most Transformative Products, awarding it their 2010 Breakthrough Award.
A Harvard-led, independent research project evaluated the air cleaning performance of several in-duct and portable devices, and found conclusive results: Trane CleanEffects™ is the world’s most effective whole-house air filtration system.
Some of the industry’s leading experts, including Harvard professors Dr. Jack McCarthy and Dr. John Spengler, give proof to this claim after administering rigorous tests as part of a joint research project between the firm Environmental Health & Engineering (EH&E) and the Harvard School of Public Health and the University of Georgia.
The tests centered on evaluating the air cleaning performance of several in-duct and portable devices including Trane CleanEffects™ whole house air cleaning system. The research was conducted in a test home located at EH&E headquarters in Newton, Massachusetts. What they found was that not only did Trane CleanEffects™ prove to be the most effective whole-house air filtration system, it also removed 99.98% of all airborne particulates and allergens from the air inside the home.
So, while they’re known for reliable heating and air conditioning, they also seem to be setting the industry standard in smart home and clean air technology, because your home comfort deserves constant innovation.
