With Energy Star ratings on nearly all of their products, as well as an air filtration system that might just be the best on the market, Trane has been a leader in the industry for decades. If this is a brand you’ve been considering, here is some more information to get you started.

Pros

Trane units come with Trane CleanEffects for advanced air filtration.

Trane offers air conditioning units at a variety of energy-efficiency levels.

Nearly all of their units are Energy Star rated.

Cons

Durability

With the proper installation and maintenance, Trane air conditioning units should last the industry standard of 12-15 years. This means, of course, that you must clean and service your air conditioning system regularly to avoid costly repairs down the road. Only then will your investment last.

Maintenance

If you want your air conditioning unit to survive the full 15 years, it’s essential to keep up with the required maintenance. Filters should be cleaned or replaced (depending on whether it’s disposable or not) once a month.

Also, make sure to clear away any dirt and debris from the unit that may be restricting air flow. Hire a professional to check on the unit once a year (spring is usually best).

History

The history of Trane can be traced all the way back to 1885, when James Trane, a Norwegian immigrant, opened up a plumbing shop in La Crosse, WI. After experiencing the cold Wisconsin winters, he created a low-pressure heating system, which he later began manufacturing and selling under the Trane Company name. Around 1931 he began manufacturing air conditioning systems as well.
