New From Trane 2022Q2

HVAC keeps getting better: New products, updated products, and a new approach to service.

Trane innovation is guided by a big emerging trend: decarbonization. We’re innovating new products and re-imagining how existing products can support decarbonization long after installation. This release has a bit of everything.

ELECTRIFICATION OF HEATING

Over 180 cities, more than ten counties, and eight states across the U.S. have goals to power their communities with 100% clean, renewable energy. As the grid gets greener, the need for full electric heating and cooling is growing. Engineers, contractors, and building owners want to lower fossil fuel consumption and reap the efficiency and sustainability benefits of electrified heating and cooling. By joining Trane’s best-in-class chiller expertise with the Ascend air-to-water heat pump, Trane is making electrified heating and cooling a realistic option for customers.

Ascend® Air-to-Water Heat Pump Model ACX

Ascend® Air-to-Water Heat Pump Model ACX

The new Ascend® Air-to-Water Heat Pump Model ACX provides all electric heating or cooling. It moves energy rather than generates it, which can make it three times more energy-efficient than other forms of electric heating. Performance is pre-engineered into the digital Symbio® 800 controls. Plus, it’s highly reliable and ultra-quiet.

Comprehensive Chiller-Heater System

Comprehensive Chiller-Heater System

Make the most of your heat pump with our new Comprehensive Chiller-Heater System. It combines the benefits of the model ACX with reliable, efficient system performance, plus a full array of equipment capabilities, including air filtration and optimized ventilation for superior indoor air quality. Designed to be flexible, it’s a smart choice when you need to decarbonize, whether in an existing building that is reusing equipment, or in a new building that’s starting from scratch.

Learn More About Comprehensive Chiller-Heater System

As a result of its boiler-free heating, the model ACX achieves high energy efficiency for cooling and heating. The unit’s heating efficiency exceeds ASHRAE® standard 90.1-2019: 2.77 COP for heating and a cooling requirement of 9.215 EER.

The Ascend model ACX can help builders and operators meet current HVAC regulations, attain certifications or achieve a net-zero energy building with its all-electric functionality and other energy-efficient features.

  • Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) compliant.
  • Variable-speed fans, variable speed permanent magnet motors, intermediate discharge valves on the compressor, and braze plate evaporators enhance efficiency.
  • Dual expansion refrigerant flow valves optimized for heating and cooling modes enable system reliability.
  • The heat pump generates hot water temperatures up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit and operation down to zero degrees ambient.
  • The Symbio® 800 unit controller comes factory-mounted and pre-programmed with algorithms that respond to building conditions and maintain efficient chiller plant operations. It also enables secure remote connectivity and open standard protocols for seamless integration with a Building Automation System (BAS) such as Tracer® SC+.
  • A scroll compressor makes electrification more affordable and practical without compromising efficiency or sound.
  • The fin and tube coil support a smaller footprint, and the transverse “V” condenser coils are easy to access for cleaning and service.

Trane’s free Comprehensive Chiller-Heater System” guide, available now for download, provides best practices on integrating the heat pump with chillers and configuring reliable, high-performing air-to-water heating and cooling systems based on heat pumps.

INCREASING EFFICIENCY

Precedent® rooftop unit

Precedent® Enabled by Symbio® 700

Trane is releasing a new generation of Precedent rooftop units to meet the next era of energy efficiency requirements. The new Precedent portfolio will include capacities from 3-25 tons, a full range of tonnages and heating types, and improved efficiency levels. The new single-product family of light commercial unitary rooftops will be released in phases now through 2024.

Learn More About Precedent Rooftop Units

Available immediately, the Precedent standard efficiency 6- to 25-ton cooling and gas units feature various improvements and upgrades, including part-load efficiency ratings that comply with new industry efficiency requirements. New Precedent units are enabled by the Symbio 700 controller to easily monitor and control HVAC systems and harness building connectivity for advanced troubleshooting and energy management.

Additional benefits across the entire product family include:

  • Compliant with U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) 2023 minimum efficiency regulations helping to reduce utility costs
  • New serviceability enhancements include hinged access to the control panel, color-coded wiring with keyed connectors, and a direct drive plenum fan and motor.
  • Connection with the Symbio Service and Installation App for easy commissioning, monitoring, and troubleshooting.
  • A new three-year parts warranty provides extra peace of mind.

Four product options in the Precedent line are available and suit a range of applications:

  • Cooling – optional electric heat, is an all-electric option.
  • Gas Pack – pairs electric cooling with gas heating.
  • Heat Pump – couples refrigerant-system cooling and heating, providing an all-electric solution.
  • Hybrid/Dual Fuel – combines
