Trane Showcases Commercial Building Solutions at AHR Expo that Advance Energy Efficiency, Management and Conservation

Chicago, Jan. 26, 2015Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort systems and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, will showcase its new products and services at the AHR Expo in Chicago from Jan. 26-28, that help increase energy efficiency, lower operating costs and address the sustainability needs of building owners and operators.

“Our theme for 2015 is around putting intelligence to work in buildings,” said Dave Regnery, president of Trane Commercial for North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. “We are introducing new products, robust controls and services that, combined with Trane knowledge, make buildings run more efficiently.”

At the Trane AHR Expo in Chicago, Booth #4810, Trane leaders will offer short technology-based in-booth presentations on creating intelligent systems, intelligent buildings and design, and a refrigerant update. Trane leaders are available for interviews upon request and by appointment. Trane leaders will also demonstrate and discuss the following new innovations:

Trane Sintesis™ air-cooled chiller that is energy efficient and quiet, and offers customers the choice of operating with a next generation, lower global warming potential refrigerant -- DuPont™ Opteon® XP10 (R-513A) or with R-134a. Product will be available in North America and Latin America with next generation refrigerant option in June 2015.

Sintesis is one of the first products in the new Ingersoll Rand EcoWise™ portfolio of products that are designed to lower environmental impact with next generation, low global warming potential refrigerants and high efficiency operation.

Trane® Tracer™ Concierge™ is a new control system that provides an easy and affordable way for building owners to gain simplified HVAC and lighting control, resulting in improved comfort and performance, with reduced operating costs. Concierge goes beyond managing individual rooms by running heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and lighting systems simply and smartly, offering an easy-to-use interface and delivering high energy efficiency, lower maintenance and advanced capabilities to fit specific needs.

Trane® Air-Fi™ wireless technology which eliminates the need for wired building controls now has battery life three times that of competitive solutions, saving time and money replacing batteries. Air-Fi allows control system installations to be completed quickly with less disruption to occupants. They can be easily moved or replaced as needed.

Trane® Water-Source VRF ductless systems are the latest addition to the Trane ductless portfolio, which also includes standard and mini VRF systems. Simultaneous heating and cooling allows VRF to provide cost-efficient solutions for multi-tenant and diversely occupied  commercial building owners.  Unoccupied areas can be switched off for additional energy savings.

Additional Existing Trane Systems and Services Featured

Trane® Intelligent Services combines technology, proprietary analytics and expertise to continuously collect, interpret and act on data from building equipment and controls to optimize the performance of the building.  Trane Intelligent Services enables building owners to transform data into information, knowledge and actions that increase energy efficiency, operating income and sustainability.

Trane® Performance Climate Changer™ air handlers deliver greater energy efficiency, indoor air quality and quiet performance, along with the ability for full integration into a building management system.

Trane® Precedent™ Light-Commercial Rooftop Units give customers the fastest delivery times in the industry and the lowest installed costs. Additional high efficiency options are available to further reduce operating costs. Trane® eFlex™ variable-speed compressors and fans deliver the performance building occupants need, while also delivering the efficiency building owners want. By precisely matching output to the cooling demands of the space, Trane eFlex compressors and fans operate at their fastest levels when demand is high, and modulate to slower levels when demand is less.

Trane® Tracer™ controls are intuitive, Web-based building automation systems that provide valuable insights into HVAC equipment, building and enterprise operations. From equipment controls to building automation systems, Trane offers a complete portfolio of intelligent controls to enable buildings to operate at peak energy and operational efficiency.
