HVAC Philly is proud to offer Trane products to our customers throughout the Philadelphia and South Jersey area. Trane is one of the industry’s best known and trusted brands with a history that reaches back over 120 years.
Trane has an ever-increasing range of products, and we’re excited to introduce you to their line of air conditioners, furnaces, and heat pumps.
Trane offers some of the most efficient air conditioners that you can purchase. You may have noticed an Energy Star label on various appliances. Energy Star is a United States government program with the mission to make the consumer public more aware of energy conservation by labeling the more efficient machines.
For a central air conditioning unit to qualify for an Energy Star designation, it has to have a minimum rating of 14.5. The rating is its Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). The higher a machine’s SEER, the less energy it uses, and the more money it will save you in the long run. HVAC Philly now installs Trane air conditioners with a SEER of up to 22.
If you have an older air conditioner from 2005 or earlier, it probably has a SEER of 10 or less. That means that the lowest-rated Energy Star model in today’s market will still function far better than your old unit. As technology has improved, so has the efficiency of air conditioners. Not only will the newer models save you money in utility bills each month, but they will also run quieter than the old units.
Everyone won’t need a super-high SEER. It depends upon several factors, including the climate where you live. The U.S. government divides the country into three regions, each with its minimum mandated SEER for air conditioners. Air conditioners in the north must have a SEER of 13, while those in the southwest and southeast require a rating of 14.
We can also install new Trane gas or oil furnaces at your home. Trane produces highly efficient furnaces. You can be confident that your Trane furnace will give you the most for your dollar.
How well a furnace saves you money is measured by its Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). The AFUE rating is an indicator of how well a furnace converts fuel, such as natural gas or oil, into usable heat. The U.S. government has set a minimum standard AFUE for new furnaces at 85. That means that a new furnace has to be able to turn at least 85% of the fuel it consumes into heat for your home.
Trane furnaces routinely surpass the government minimum and receive coveted Energy Star designations. For example, we can install a Trane furnace with an AFUE rating as high as 97.3.
Trane heat pumps also feature Climate tuff Compressors, which continuously make minor adjustments to keep your home at a set temperature. You won’t experience those uncomfortable and irritating fluctuations of your indoor climate.
Heat pumps perform double duty. They keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. For a system to work year-round, it must be well-built, reliable, and efficient.
Trane heat pumps are known for their durability. They’re also some of the most efficient heat pumps available. A heat pump’s ability to efficiently cool, like air conditioners, is indicated by its SEER rating.
Its efficiency in heating is reflected in its Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF). The HSPF is a measurement of how well a heat pump converts electricity into usable heat.
Trane offers heat pumps with SEER ratings as high as 20, which is far above the government requirement for air conditioners. And the same heat pumps exceed the government minimum HSPF mandate of 8.2. Anything above that standard is a high-efficiency heating unit. Top-of-the-line Trane heat pumps register an HSPF of 10 and even 12.
Are you ready to make your home a place of comfort and relaxation with a new heat pump, furnace, or air conditioner? Contact HVAC Philly today to learn more about Trane products and how they can help keep you cozy all year long.
