Trane Puts Comfort on Cruise Control at Comfortech 2013
Trane is debuting its newest innovation at Comfortech 2013: the TruComfort™ line of variable speed air conditioners and heat pumps. These state-of-the-art systems deliver precise and efficient comfort by running their compressors at the exact speed needed to keep homes at the ideal temperature, no matter what the conditions. This newest addition to Trane’s catalog of innovations – including more than 1,500 patents – will be showcased to dealers, industry professionals and media at the Comfortech 2013 trade show on Sept.18-20 in Philadelphia.

Conventional heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems operate much like a car engine in stopand- go traffic; they constantly start and stop until the targeted temperature is reached. In comparison, Trane Tru- Comfort variable speed technology uses the same efficiencies as a vehicle at highway speeds while on cruise control. Featuring a ComfortLink II communicating control board with refrigerant cooled inverter, it consistently optimizes its run speed, often at lower outputs, to provide continuous comfort within a half degree of the targeted temperature. This eliminates uncomfortable temperature swings and provides energy-efficient, quiet operation.

“Trane TruComfort represents our commitment to innovation. It provides homeowners with unstoppable comfort and value,” said Tim Storm, Trane outdoor product marketing manager. “We’re pleased to be unveiling it to the world at Comfortech, one of the industry’s finest shows.”
