Reduce your energy use beyond HVAC

Change lighting. Change perceptions about your building.

Most of the things you do to reduce the energy intensity of your building are invisible to visitors - but not lighting. As you're upgrading lighting to reduce operating costs, decarbonize and be more sustainable, you can also change the indoor environment for the better.

  • Improve Energy Efficiency

  • Increase Light Quality

  • Enhance Architectural Aesthetics

“This project helps us to save money by reducing our energy consumption and it provides an opportunity to create a personalized instructional environment for our students and teachers." said Dr. David Hornak, Holt Public Schools Superintendent

A lighting upgrade recognized by the U.S. Dept. of Energy (DOE) is expected to reduce energy use by more than 60 percent for the Holt Public School district, which serves more than 5,000 students in nine buildings in central Michigan. The upgrades have helped to make the learning environment more comfortable: previously, overbright lighting had driven some teachers to turning classroom lights off entirely.

Upgrade Your Lighting

Trane can meet your energy retrofit objectives safely and cost-effectively, using high-quality solutions that expand the possibilities of what lighting can do.

Basic TLED Solution

Type C style TLEDs offer external drivers with L70= 50,000 hours. The glass tube construction optimizes light output and heat dissipation. This solution is dimmable and “controls ready” with 0-10V dimming.

Fluorescent Troffer Retrofit Kits

Fluorescent Troffer Retrofit Kits offer improved reliability, with better thermal heatsinking than TLEDs alone. They are available with integrated wired or wireless sensor options with BACnet compatibility.

Flat Panels and Architectural Luminaires

Flat panels offer excellent light distribution and eliminate shadow areas. They are available with integrated wired or wireless sensor options with BACnet compatibility.

Lighting Integration

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, commercial building lighting and HVAC represent over 50% of total U.S. electricity consumption. By incorporating the use of high efficiency lighting equipment into your building system—whether its LEDs, occupancy sensing, daylighting, or tuning— you can significantly reduce carbon emissions, increase savings with lower installed cost, improve risk management, and enhance the overall building value with a superior end user experience.

How Lighting Impacts Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)

Trane rises above to deliver on multiple critical factors of indoor atmosphere that balances human wellness, energy efficiency, and sustainability to provide holistic solutions for addressing occupants’ health and wellness.

The lighting design of indoor spaces can affect peoples’ productivity, performance, comfort, mood, safety, health & wellbeing, and even the circadian rhythms of their bodies.

Applying germicidal UV lighting solutions in a space can improve air and surface cleanliness.
