Now that summer is here, having a reliable HVAC system is paramount. Dependable cooling (and heating during winter months) is not only a matter of comfort but one of safety as well.
If you are in the market for a replacement HVAC system, you may have come across the Trane brand. Trane systems and components have made a name for themselves over the years, and you may be wondering whether they live up to the hype.
Trane HVAC products are some of the highest-quality systems available. This article explains why that is and what you can expect from any model or part. Keep reading to find out if they are the right choice for your home.
A Brief History of Trane
The Trane company was founded in 1885, in Wisconsin, by a Norwegian immigrant and plumber named James Trane. In addition to his plumbing work, Mr. Trane was an inventor. His newfound destiny was sparked by the invention of an innovative new type of home heating system that relied on low-pressure steam.
Over the next few decades, the company moved away from plumbing. They continued to produce some of the highest quality heating and (eventually) cooling systems. Today they are still renowned for continued innovations and for making some of the best quality HVAC systems and equipment on the market.
Trane continues to go above and beyond to produce excellent units and components. They have spent decades refining how their components work so that they last for a long time and operate as efficiently as possible.
For instance, Trane is the only HVAC manufacturer to offer the all-aluminum SpineFin outdoor coil. These provide superior heat-transfer capabilities for better efficiency, as well as resistance to corrosion.
Trane runs a Systems Extreme Environmental Test facility in Texas. Here, they expose each unit to a range of weather conditions, including extreme cold and heat. In addition, units are forced to experience voltage extremes and power interrupts multiple times per hour to test their units in the harshest environments. They also test components against abuse from salt water, to ensure integrity in homes on the coast.
Trane backs up all its registered products with a 10-year warranty. In short, you can expect a Trane HVAC system to not only last a long time but function well far into the future.
Also, Trane systems continue to get high SEER2 (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratings) marks. This is the federal measurement of how well an HVAC system cools or heats a given space relative to the amount of electricity it uses. It means you can expect your Trane AC or heat pump to run efficiently, which means lower utility bills.
Finally, to be a Trane HVAC dealer, you must agree to strict installation guidelines. The company provides annual training to ensure competence in every contractor that sells or installs their equipment.
