TRACE™ 700

As a systems and services provider, we understand the challenges of designing the most efficient, lowest cost HVAC system solution. That’s why we developed Trane Air Conditioning Economics, or TRACE™—an award-winning design-and-analysis software program that helps HVAC professionals optimize the design of a building’s heating, ventilating and air-conditioning system based on energy utilization and life-cycle cost.

TRACE 700 helps you compare the energy and economic impact of building-related selections such as:

  • architectural features
  • HVAC systems
  • HVAC equipment
  • building utilization or scheduling
  • financial options.  
TRACE™ 700 Load Design and TRACE™ 700 Load Express are integrated within the tool.

State of the art features

Extensive Modeling Functionality

Choose from over 50 airside systems, air- and waterside economizers, advanced chiller plant configurations, water-source and central and distributed ground-source systems, VRF and UFAD systems, dedicated outdoor-air systems and optimized control strategies.


ASHRAE Standard 90.1 equipment and envelope libraries, gbXML (green build XML) imports, weather files, templates, ASHRAE 62.1-2010 Ventilation Rate Procedure, Building Information Modeling (BIM) and more.


TRACE 700 complies with Appendix G for Performance Rating Method of ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2007 and 2010 for LEED analysis, and was the first simulation software approved by the IRS for energy-savings certification (EPAct).  TRACE is also tested in compliance with ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 140-2011 and 2014.  As such, TRACE is qualified for the 179D Commercial Building Tax Credits.

Support and Training

World-class dedicated engineers and support specialists are available to answer your questions and help you discover the best solution for your HVAC design. TRACE 700 customers can also attend our training classes.
