At Mitchell Heating and Cooling, we know quality. While we will install your preferred HVAC brand, our top choice and recommendations continue to be Trane. This post will list the benefits of a Trane HVAC system and what makes it our top choice for homeowners.
They’ve been around since the beginning.
Trane has been making air conditioners ever since electric air conditioners have been a thing. The first electric air conditioner was invented in 1901, Trane started making air conditioners 120 years ago.
Their units are energy efficient.
An important part of choosing an HVAC system is deciding what SEER rating is right for you. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. This essentially is a measure of cooling output by energy usage and tells you how energy efficient a unit will be. Similar to miles per gallon of a car. Trane A/C systems range from 14.5 SEER to 22 SEER. The minimum standard for A/C systems is 13 SEER. A higher SEER rating will save you money on your electric bill and run more efficiently. Talk with your Mitchell Heating Representative to decide the best choice for you! Don’t forget to see what rebates are being offered in your area for high efficacy equipment. As Trane points out on their website, “Most older A/C systems are rated at around 8 or 9, so even the lowest available SEER rated system you buy today will be much more energy-efficient.”
They are quiet.
Trane A/C systems are some of the quietest in the business. For example, the Trane XV18 units create a sound level starting at 57dBA. To put this into terms, the CDC lists a whisper as 30 dBA and a washing machine at 70. Trane also has a designated Noise Measurer whose only job is to measure the noise produced by every Trane model. This is just another example of the dedication of the Trane team and the innovation of Trane equipment.
Trane HVAC equipment is reliable and durable. This did not happen by accident. They put their systems through some of the most extreme tests to mimic the situations they will face once installed. Some of the tests they run include the shake test, the slam test, the extreme cost test, and the extreme heat test. For an example of how extreme these tests can be the “Slam Test” Involved repeatedly hitting the unit with a large. Machine operating paddles. Then they see if the unit is still running perfectly.
They’re a smart adaptable company.
Throughout the pandemic, it is no secret that equipment and materials have been hard to find. Trane has done its best to stay in front of anticipated issues. They do a great job of keeping their equipment stocked. This means it is less likely that you experience a delay with installation due to supply shortages.
