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.
The cost of a Trane air conditioning unit depends on the size, make and model of the system you’re interested in. It’s best to call a professional and discuss which sized unit is appropriate to cool the desired rooms in your home. You can also find a Trane dealer near you here.
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.
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).
This trademarked system is able to remove 99.98% of airborne allergens from the air in your home—more than any other system on the market.
The highest SEER rating (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) that Trane offers is 20.
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.
