Trane Features Latest Solutions, Discusses Air Balance Data Optimization at RFMA 2015

San Diego, Jan. 29, 2015 Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, will discuss how to optimize air balance data at the Restaurant Facility Management Association (RFMA) annual conference. Trane will also feature some of its latest solutions at the conference, which is held Feb. 1-3 in San Diego.

Greg DuChane, retail vertical marketing director for Trane, will offer a hands-on working session to educate facility directors about optimizing air balance report data using recent case study information from Red Lobster. While an air balance report on heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) restaurant systems can be a costly investment, the information obtained is invaluable.

Leveraging the report properly requires understanding the information and how to use it in the most advantageous way. Attendees will learn how to use air balance report data and gain an understanding of benchmarking and other key performance indicators to assist in diagnosing and troubleshooting HVAC system issues. They will walk away prepared to execute a plan to help ensure their stores operate at optimum efficiency.
