Consumers in search of new HVAC equipment face a bewildering number of choices. Within the U.S. alone there are more than a dozen companies that build high-quality systems. A good set of criteria for judging HVAC systems includes reliability, efficiency, and customer satisfaction, and within these important areas one manufacturer stands alone: Trane.
The engineers at Trane’s Systems Extreme Environmental Test lab run Trane products through the exact kinds of tests that the name suggests. Lab engineers put products through five years’ worth of extreme heat, cold, and general wear and tear in a mere 16 weeks to ensure durability and long life. In a testament to the reliability of Trane products, one Trane compressor ran continuously for nearly 28 years at 3500 rpm while completely encased in ice.
The energy efficiency of air conditioners is determined by Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). Most modern air conditioners have a SEER rating that ranges from 13, the minimum standard, to 21, which is considered maximal efficiency. Trane air conditioners range from 14.5 to 22 SEER, making them among the most energy efficient units available. Better energy efficiency means lower utility bills for your Estero, FL home. Trane products have earned the "Best of the Best" award for efficiency from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
In 2018, Trane had the distinction of being named "America’s Most Trusted HVAC Brand" for the fourth consecutive year by Lifestory Research. The award is based on surveys of over 8,000 HVAC equipment customers over the course of a year, and Trane was one of 15 brands in the study. Trane’s own customer surveys show a 93 percent rate of customer satisfaction, due in part to the rigorous training of Trane’s authorized service and installation technicians.
