Company honoured for its Precedent high efficiency packaged gas/electric and cooling units
Trane has reported that for the fourth consecutive year, its Residential Solutions business has been recognised for innovation and excellence in product design by The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration (ACHR) NEWS. The Trane Precedent high efficiency packaged gas/electric and cooling units received a Bronze Award in the HVAC light commercial equipment category in the magazine’s 7th annual Dealer Design Awards programme. An independent panel of 30 contractors acted as judges for the contest, which had 114 entries from different industry brands, Trane said.
“Trane has constantly sought input from contractors and dealers to improve the designs of its light commercial systems,” said Mike Ray, manager of light commercial development for Trane Residential Solutions. “The new high efficiency Precedent units are typically up to 30% lighter than similar products on the market today, and only slightly heavier than the standard efficiency units, making them ideal for replacement applications. The additional advantage is that an installer may not need to engage a structural engineer, which can save time and money.”
In addition to the weight advantage, the units deliver high- energy efficiency (up to 13 EER) by virtue of the patented Hybrid condensing coil, which makes for easy cleaning and better heat transfer, claimed Trane.
Peter Blanchflower, Marketing Leader for the Middle East, Africa, and India region for Trane, added: “The Precedent unit is also very popular among contractors, consultants and Trane distributors in the Middle East. It is used in residential, retail and commercial building applications.”
