Air conditioner + furnace matched systems

An air conditioner and furnace is a popular matched system throughout the United States, because it can be paired with a high efficiency air conditioner, and provides significantly warmer air to the home.

What does an air conditioner do?

Unlike a heat pump, which can provide both heating and cooling using only electricity, an air conditioner works together with either an air handler or furnace coil to cool the air in your home. It relies on either a gas furnace, or the electric strip heaters in your air handler, for heating.

Trane furnaces are designed to provide maximum heat with minimum fuel usage

With their expertly designed and rigorously tested components, Trane furnaces are designed to provide maximum comfort and reliability. In conjunction with the system’s thermostat and air conditioner, a Trane furnace works to keep you comfortable in all seasons by delivering heating or cooling.

During the summer, your furnace works to move air over your system’s evaporator coil to deliver cold, refreshing air to your home. When temperatures drop, your Trane furnace kicks into heating mode and uses its gas heating capabilities to keep everything warm.


Adding an air cleaner can also help reduce pollen, pet dander, dust, and smoke in your home

An air cleaner is integral part of a home comfort system. An air cleaner can filter dust and pollutants out of the air you breathe, and keeps your rugs and home furnishings cleaner as well. Reduced pollen, dust, pet dander, smoke, etc., could help reduce allergy and asthma discomfort. A Trane CleanEffects® Whole Home Air Cleaner air filtration system can remove up to 99.98%* of airborne particles that pass through the reusable filter.

*Based on third party testing of particle removal efficiency down to 0.3 microns (2005).
