Davidson, N.C., (December 7, 2022) – Trane Residential and American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning have announced the national launch of Link, their award-winning communication technology, designed to simplify installation, commissioning, and remote monitoring of variable speed HVAC systems. Following a successful regional roll out in spring 2022, independent Trane and American Standard dealers can now sell and install Link nationwide.“Link is a new revolutionary technology that will change the way technicians and homeowners think about their HVAC system,” says Jason Bingham, president of Trane Residential HVAC and Supply. “Through Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections,
Link technology was designed to provide technicians with a plug-and-play experience. Link technology assists with installation accuracy through automated HVAC system configuration, charging and testing. Integrated into Trane and American Standard’s new line of variable speed systems, Link technology connects the units through a centralized brain and alerts technicians of any equipment faults. Should an equipment fault be identified, Link provides technicians with a full description and list of potential causes.
Sources report that the benefits of the technology extend beyond installation. Once a homeowner opts into the diagnostics program, technicians can also remotely monitor the system; receive alerts from any faults; as well as view, edit, and adjust thermostat settings as necessary. This saves time for both the technician and homeowner, as every issue may not require a home visit. If a home visit is necessary, the technician can arrive onsite with the parts needed to repair the system.
Link currently offers connectivity to a line of Trane and American Standard variable speed units that include:
- Trane XV20i and American Standard Platinum 18 heat pumps and air conditioners;
- Trane and American Standard TAMX air handlers;
- Trane and American Standard S8V2-C Furnaces.
- Corresponding Link-enabled smart thermostat and system controller;
- Accessories – SmartChargeTM Solenoid Kit, Air Handler Pressure Transducer Kit, etc.
HVAC technicians can ensure a speedier setup as Link technology allows the technician to use a Bluetooth mesh connection and the Diagnostics Mobile App on their phone or tablet to self-identify the equipment and walk them through the installation. Another benefit of Link is that it can be remotely controlled, and all software updates take place automatically over Wi-Fi as well as with Link-integrated air handlers and smart thermostats.
