Self-Paced Learning

Engineers Newsletters & Engineers Newsletters Live!

Trane Engineers Newsletters are topical, informative articles that provide engineering professionals who design HVAC systems with reliable, objective, and technologically current information in a non-commercial format.

For 50 years, these newsletters have been published by Trane Applications Engineering group to aid engineers in the design and application of HVAC systems. Subjects range from acoustics to water piping to interpretation of ASHRAE standards. These newsletters have become a trusted technical resource, with a current circulation of more than 40,000.

Trane Engineers Newsletter Live

The year 2022 marks the 50-year anniversary of Trane’s Engineers Newsletter (EN) publication. This year, in addition to our quarterly topical newsletter publications, we’re going to highlight past newsletter topics as they relate to current issues and showcase past and current authors. 



Electrical Considerations: 50 Years of the Engineers Newsletter
When joining Trane in 2000, with a background in electrical engineering, I found the Engineers Newsletters helpful in expanding my knowledge in the HVAC realm. The content was educational, timely, and well thought out with just enough technical detail to point me in the right direction and kick start my learning. It is an honor to be an EN author myself—having now authored or co-authored three newsletters. I hope to help Trane continue this goal of concise, timely education for many years to come.


Standards & codes: 50 years of the Engineers Newsletter
I’ve been an applications engineer at Trane for over 26 years. During that time, I’ve authored twenty Engineers Newsletters, several of which were related to a specific ASHRAE® or AHRI© standard. These standards impact engineering professionals who design HVAC systems, but they can be long, complicated documents. And since they are written in code-enforceable language, some of the requirements can be confusing. Through the EN, we attempt to highlight and clearly explain how recent changes to an industry standard will impact the job of the HVAC design engineer and how the design of HVAC systems might be affected going forward.
Many of our past Engineers Newsletters can be found in the various topic sections below.
