Performance Climate Changer™ air handlers ─ Trane has introduced a new, economical model to its Performance Climate Changer™ air handler portfolio, designed to deliver improved efficiency, indoor air quality and occupant comfort to serve a wider variety of applications and customers.

Trane® Performance Climate Changer air handlers optimize energy conservation and deliver efficiency to the entire heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Unit features are designed to surpass ASHRAE 90.1 standards and provide the flexibility to tailor air handler selection to specific application requirements while staying within customers’ budgets.

Superior casing construction, including configurations with double-wall casing panels and high-performance foam insulation, significantly reduces air leakage rates and can deliver up to 30 percent lower energy consumption. Certain portfolio configurations also feature stacked, direct-drive plenum (SDDP™) fan arrays that provide full redundancy to keep HVAC systems working, quietly improving efficiency and reducing maintenance requirements.

Trane Wireless Comm significantly simplifies building projects by minimizing the labor, engineering, estimating and project management tasks associated with communication link and zone sensor wiring, and simplifies problem solving on new buildings, controls upgrades and building expansion projects.

Fellon-McCord, a new Trane affiliate in global energy management and sourcing solutions has more than 20 years of experience serving commercial, industrial, institutional and government customers. Their energy supply procurement and management services expertise expand Trane capabilities for supply-side energy management.
