Trane Air Conditioners Company Profile

Home air conditioning at it best

Trane Air Conditioners

Trane air conditioners are known for their good energy efficiency ratings but they do tend to be quite expensive compared to Carrier models of equal quality.

Trane was established by a Norwegian by the name of James Trane. He arrived in the USA in 1864 and after settling in La Crosse, Wisconsin, managed to find work as a steamfitter and plumber. He opened his own store in 1885 and soon gained a reputation for being the best plumber in the area. When his son, Rueben, graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in engineering he began working for his father’s company which then began its progression toward global recognition.

The first Trane air conditioners were produced in 1931 using a similar coil system to the convector radiator. By expanding on its range of air conditioners the small company grew into what is now one of today’s largest specializing in climate control products – home and commercial. Trane made a number of advances during the WWII period when it utilized its technologies to make a variety of different products for the military.

Of these products the aircraft intercooler was the one that really boosted the company’s reputation. This was due to the cooler being much smaller and lighter than previous heat exchangers but still operated at the same efficiency. This new model was used in the Lunar Rover of the Apollo 15 mission in 1971.

Trane then expanded into unit air conditioners which significantly improved sales. These new smaller systems became very popular due the fact that they were quicker and cheaper to install than others as well as being far more suitable for smaller, residential buildings. This opened up a whole new marketing niche which boosted the company into the global arena.
