Ongoing Optimization

Once your building is connected, we can help you establish a more proactive approach to maintaining the control system and keeping it optimized. Our digital services use your systems’ data and Trane analytics to create informative dashboards that describe the performance of your building and its assets., like the HVAC equipment. You’ll discover opportunities to decrease energy use and increase productivity through system optimization. Worried about energy costs? We can help. The first step to making improvements is knowing where performance currently stands, so we’ll begin by taking baseline energy measurements. 

System Maintenance

It’s important to maintain the mechanical equipment in your building. It’s equally important to maintain the building automation system by keeping software and hardware up to date. Trane regularly introduces protections against the latest cyber security threats and introduces incremental productivity improvements.

Customer Stories

Learn how Trane helped these customers take back control of their buildings.

Grand Hyatt New York

Building automation retrofit and energy management system implementation reduce energy use by 1,328,335 kWh and CO2 emissions by 916 metric tons; lower operating costs of controlled systems by more than $271K; allow hotel to capitalize on utility company energy savings rebates and building automation system rebates estimated at more than $600K.

Bank of America Stadium

Bank of America Stadium Faced with the need for additional cooling capacity, high energy costs, and an aging infrastructure, Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers, was also challenged by a short off-season. With events already scheduled and tickets sold, it was critical that needed upgrades adhere to strict deadlines in order to provide comfort for stadium guests, and alleviate the inconvenience and financial burden of cancellations.

1177 West Hastings

Comfort wasn’t an issue at the West Hasting office building. The original-construction chillers, installed almost fifty-years ago, were handling load requirements. However, Golden Properties knew there weren’t a lot of years left in the aging equipment and wished to upgrade to new technologies that would not only reduce energy consumption, but also provide options to enable more efficient building operations.
