Who Is Trane®? Here is a Quick History.
Founded in La Crosse, WI, and incorporated in 1913, Trane® has over 130 years of experience in heating and air conditioning systems. James Trane, an immigrant from Norway, opened his own plumbing shop in 1885, and immediately set out to invent a low-pressure heating system for the home. Aided by his mechanical engineer son, Reuben, they developed the Trane Vapor Heating System. The new heating system was being manufactured by 1910, and just three years later, the Trane Company was incorporated.
Since the beginning, Trane® has been an innovator in HVAC technology. In 1923, that reputation was cemented when Reuben Trane’s invention of the convector (flat panel with fins) radiator to replace the bulky cast iron radiator. In 1931, Trane® went live with an air conditioning system designed for large commercial buildings, the first of its kind.
Since those heady early days, Trane® has continued a trend toward building the best home and commercial air conditioning systems on the market. Currently, Trane® provides air conditioning for many important locations around the world, including the St. Louis Arch in Missouri, the Washington Monument in DC, and the Kremlin in Moscow.
What Sets Trane® Apart from the Other AC Manufacturers?
Unlike most AC system makers, who source their parts from an outside vendor, Trane® manufactures their own parts. Additionally, they are always evolving HVAC research in their testing facility here in Tyler, Texas. All Trane® systems are tested in every possible worst-case scenario, from running them encased in ice, in blistering heat, even partially submerged in water. When a Trane® air conditioner fails a test, the unit is re-engineered and tested until it is good enough for your home.
Trane® holds more than 1,500 patents for various heating and cooling products like their Hyperion™ Air Handlers, that use refrigerator-styled insulation for improved efficiency. The ComfortLink™ II system allows for remote digital communication with heating and cooling control via your smartphone or tablet.

For the last six years, Trane® has been recognized by LifeStory Research as America’s Most Trusted HVAC System. Popular Mechanics called the ComfortLink™ control system one of the year’s Most Transformative Products in 2002 upon its introduction.
