7 October, 2013 – Building owners and operators are continuously looking to optimize their building systems and achieve energy and cost savings. They require clear, concrete information to evaluate various solutions to improve system efficiency and make an informed investment decision.
2 October, 2013 – To enable building owners, facility managers and control operators access and management of their building systems via mobile devices, Trane introduced the free Tracer™ Building Automation System (BAS) Operator Suite mobile application.
24 September, 2013 – Temporary cooling needs can arise at any time in a building’s lifecycle. Because building owners and operators require quick action and support when it happens, Trane continuously expands its rental fleet.
11 September, 2013 – Air quality, temperature and sound levels are the three critical components for creating comfortable indoor environments. Trane now offers a new range of UniTrane™ Harmony fan coil units designed for easy integration and use while delivering high air quality and comfort.
27 August, 2013 – The need for equipment replacement or write-off may arise due to various reasons including economic trends, resizing, replacement, chiller plant retrofit or compliance with building and environmental regulations.
13 June, 2013 – The chiller plant represents one of the major energy consumers in most buildings. Trane now offers a range of powerful, intelligent and easy-to-use control solutions that help manage chiller plant operational costs.
15 May, 2013 – Cooling is critical for most businesses, whether it is to create the right indoor environment for buildings or to provide reliable cooling for industrial processes. Building owners and operators can now fulfill their cooling needs with the new long-term rental offering from Trane that matches their budget.
23 April, 2013 - Building owners and operators can face temporary cooling needs at any time during their facility’s life. Whether it concerns a planned or unplanned heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) need, they require quick and reliable access to information to get their cooling up and running again.
3 April, 2013 - Today’s building owners require comprehensive energy savings and performance-oriented strategy for their heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. With its new Trane Boost program, Trane addresses facility performance and utility costs management, while taking into account budget constraints and regulatory compliance.
5 February, 2013 - The Trane Tracer™ UC600 programmable controller, the latest Trane controller to receive BACnet ® listing (BTL) as BACnet Advanced Application Controller (B-AAC), now features a unique user-friendly touch screen to improve operator efficiency and productivity.
Trane proudly introduces our next generation air handling system, Climate Changer™ for Comfort applications and Climate Changer for Hospitals, Laboratories and Pharmaceutical applications.
Designed to optimize HVAC system performance by delivering industry-leading energy efficiency, enhanced option flexibility and improved indoor air quality.
Trane Voyager™ rooftop units offer a large choice of technologies and options to meet specific building cooling and heating needs and customers’ energy savings demands.
The self-contained packaged units are the ideal, economical solution for a wide range of comfort applications from shopping centers, movie theaters and restaurants, to warehouses and industrial buildings.
For building owners, it pays to optimize their heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems’ power factor. Utility companies often use this indicator of power consumption efficiency to penalize buildings with poor power quality.
As utility costs continue to rise, building managers consider efficiency a top priority for their heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort systems and solutions and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, now offers heat recovery on its entire range of AquaStream3G chillers and heat pumps to help achieve significant savings.
Cooling systems operating outside design parameters typically run an increased risk of breakdowns, higher energy costs and lower operational efficiency. Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort systems and solutions and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, now introduces Adiabatic Cooling to help building owners and facility managers achieve optimal operating performance and energy savings.
For office and healthcare buildings, maintaining a comfortable environment that supports occupant well-being is crucial. That is why Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort systems and solutions and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, is introducing a new one-way cassette fan coil for these specific comfort applications. The Trane CFAS combines enhanced comfort with a discreet physical and acoustic presence.
Facility managers trying to keep operational costs under control are wise to pay special attention to their chiller plants. These chilled water systems can consume 25 percent or more of an industrial facility’s yearly electricity use. They also become less energy efficient, less reliable and more costly to operate as they age.
Central geothermal systems offer premium energy efficiency, and a host of other benefits. This EN highlights the characteristics of a single chiller, four-pipe design.
The Trane plant in Charmes, France has been awarded Eurovent qualification for the testing of air-cooled chillers greater than 600 kW. As a result, the entire range of air-cooled chillers from Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort systems and solutions and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, is now Eurovent certified.
Rising energy costs, water shortages, and carbon footprint concerns necessitate more efficient building operation. This EN discusses three design concepts that can make the system both more efficient and more reliable.
