IAQ Trane HVAC Indoor Air Quality Products

IAQ Trane HVAC, An Integral Component in the Trane Air Conditioning Product Line

Winter! It’s a great time to take a look at the IAQ Trane HVAC product line of systems designed to manage home indoor air quality. Winter! It’s a time when Arizona homeowners spend more time inside. Winter! It’s also a time when we must recognize that indoor comfort is more than mere temperature management.

Whole-home Trane air filtration systems address comfort, humidity, and the growing demand for clean air and a healthier home environment. Problem is: no-one, including Arizona homeowners, appreciates high-pressure air conditioning sales tactics. Even if the need for quality indoor air is a prevalent condition within the home, American Cooling and Heating technicians are trained to be cautious in the presentation of IAQ technology.

Some Arizona residents don’t care about the current trend in IAQ products. And that is fine. We don’t push for sales. But, if a homeowner has an interest in maintaining a healthier home environment, the techs at ACH are here to share information on the various Trane HVAC IAQ products available to your Arizona home.

At your convenience, please request additional information on installation of advanced IAQ Trane HVAC products.

Consumer Trane Indoor Air Quality Product Awareness

Face it: Consumer awareness of current IAQ air conditioning technology often lacks full understanding. This makes consumer clean air education a primary concern, but only if and when you as the Arizona homeowner express a genuine interest in a healthier home environment. Installing a whole-home clear air system into a household that comes complete with two indoor cats, a Labrador retriever, and no concern for allergic reactions is not cost-efficient. Although the air cleaning system would do its job, the overabundance of what amounts to industrial-strength particulate matter would result in continuous system clogging.

Installing IAQ Trane HVAC products stands under the expectation that the homeowner will work with the system, that the Arizona homeowner recognizes a problem and that he or she purposes to find a reliable solution. Clean air products are designed to perform specific functions, and most often those functions best suit a home where clean-and-tidy includes the elimination of excessive indoor pollutants. This says nothing bad about pets, smoking, or any other particular home condition. It merely acknowledges that quality indoor air can only be achieved when the homeowner also accepts the need for certain changes in their indoors lifestyle.

As a professional Arizona air conditioning installation company, American Cooling and Heating works to ensure that homeowners understand industry standard clean air terminology such as antimicrobial, cfm, HEPA, MERV, and VOC (volatile organic compound). However, our A/C techs are trained to avoid pronouncing opinions based upon visual judgments of the home. This does not mean that your ACH HVAC representative ignores signs of allergies and/or trouble-symptoms associated with the home air conditioning units. But it does mean that we want satisfied customers who buy from need and desire rather than hard-sell tactics.

If you have a need, and if you have an interest, and if your Arizona home environmental conditions make sense for installing IAQ Trane HVAC products, the techs here at American Cooling and Heating have the knowledge, the equipment and the installation skill that is necessary to ensure that your Arizona house gets properly equipped for clean air and a healthier home environment.

Six Common Air Pollutants

National Ambient Air Quality standards cover six frequent air pollutants that appear routinely across the United States (1). These “criteria pollutants,”

  1. Lead
  2. Carbon monoxide
  3. Ground-level ozone
  4. Particle pollution
  5. Nitrogen oxides
  6. AND Sulfur oxides.

Contaminate indoor air quality, hinder the reality of a healthier home environment, and sometimes cause direct property damage. Most widespread of the six: particle pollutions and ground-level ozone. Every home has some measure of clear air contamination, but when limits of pollution exceed the NAAQ primary standards, your Arizona home may be in need of an installed Trane HVAC IAQ solution.

A Fair Heat Pump Comparison of Trane Vs Goodman

Trane heat pump or Goodman heat pumpTrane XL20i Versus Goodman DSXC18 – Like System Vs. Like System

When comparing heat pumps and other air conditioning equipment one against the other, Arizona homeowners deserve real facts that offer frank product comparison data. No one wants to read a biased A/C battle report wherein one manufacturer is favored over the other merely because the installer has better connections with that specific heat pump manufacturer. Serious buyers look for a price-balanced honest report that details which HVAC system can best suit a given home environment, housing structure, and the buyer’s budget.

This report offers Phoenix A/C buyers an accurate side-by-side Trane to Goodman heat pump comparison of similar models with similar features. We do not purpose to promote the cheapest model air conditioning system over the one with the most bells and whistles. Neither do we devalue the benefits of choosing a performance and convenience enhanced Arizona home heating and cooling product.

The following units are of similar quality and features. Perhaps this information will enable you to make an informed decision for your Phoenix regional home air conditioning purchase, replacement or upgrade.

Trane XL20i Versus Goodman DSXC18 – Choosing the Right Phoenix HVAC Contractor

From compressor work on a 1936 Chrysler Airtemp to servicing the environmental control system of an Airbus 380 commercial aircraft, workmanship is the core component for effective and reliable component installation and product repair. Hire a lousy A/C technician and your equipment may never function effectively. Get on an Airbus 380 that was serviced by a tech who lacks understanding of the A3XX ECS four-stage air cycle system, and you can expect some very unhappy results.

Likewise is the efficiency and reliability of your home Arizona HVAC equipment. Hire a half-trained heat pump installer and you can forget about brand name. Incorrectly installed heating and cooling equipment will not function efficiency or effectively. Furthermore, an incorrectly installed system may actually fail prematurely, forcing you to spend unnecessary dollars due to an early system replacement.

Quality HVAC contractors offer:

· Free Estimates
· 24-Hour Service
· Trained and Skilled Technicians
· Lifetime Warranty on Workmanship
· Support and Sales of All Brands of Air Conditioning and Heating Systems
· Broad Choice In Equipment and Equipment Options
· Evidence of Bonded, Insured and Licensed Qualifications

Trane XL20i Versus Goodman DSXC18 – The ComparisonService Division in Gilbert AZ

Let’s start by taking a gander at the HVAC buying experience. It’s much like buying a car wherein some salesmen tend to jockey for your business by leaving out small details of the final product. Likewise in the A/C business, buyers can select anything from a bare-bones heat pump with minimum performance to a unit that comes complete with an optional electronic air cleaner, a “smart” thermostat system, and a whole home humidifier. And for most homeowners, the salesman holds the key to efficiency at a reasonable price.

Furthermore, if you go for an energy-rated system while failing to correctly smart-match the air handler to the condenser, you can end up with less than you deserve. So when pricing your Phoenix air conditioning system, get the facts on paper, the model numbers in detail with all options listed, and exact features that will be included in your system. Don’t save two hundred dollars on the low-bidder while getting shafted on the thermostat control system.

Point-By-Point Comparison of Goodman DSXC18 versus Trane XL20i.

External Communication provides system support for remote access to your air conditioning controls via dial-up modem. Both the Trane XL20i and the Goodman DSXC18 support this optional feature.

Humidity Control enables the fan on a heat pump or condensing unit to operate at a reduced speed. This feature helps the evaporator coil remove a greater amount of humidity from your home. The XL20i offers this feature via the Trane Comfort R™ controller. The DSXC18 comes back with Goodman’s equally effective counterpart. For functionality, both units require that the condenser and the air handler install as a matched pair.

Two-Stage Cooling is offered with either system. The Trane XL20i ships with twin Trane Dual Climatuff® Compressors whereas the Goodman DSXC18 performs the same task via a single compressor running in a two-stage mode.

Charge Assist enables your technician to better ensure that your Phoenix home heat pump is right-charged for the most efficient performance. This feature is unique to the XL20i and may actually help the tech keep your system operating more efficiently.

Multi-Stage Fan enables more efficient operation of the system condenser fan motor and the system blower motor. Both Trane and Goodman offer compatible multi-stage fan/variable speed condenser and ECM blower motor controls.

Condenser Coil Construction comes in the Goodman as copper with aluminum fins whereas Trane includes the Two-row Spine Fin™ all aluminum system. Although either system is efficient, some techs favor all aluminum whereas other techs favor copper with aluminum fins.

SEER Ratings are defined in both systems as Energy Star, reaping up to 20 SEER for the Trane XL20i and up to 18 on the Goodman DSXC18. Ask your ACH tech to better define any further SEER differences in the units.

Enhanced Diagnostics can help an A/C technician more quickly identify an existing problem. However just as with the computer system in an automobile, an HVAC enhanced diagnostics system has limitations. Goodman lists this feature as a unique-to-Goodman value. However, as an Arizona homeowner you should focus more on the skills of the tech and less on the diagnostics features of the system.

System Warranties differ only slightly between the two units. Both Trane and Goodman offer a 10-year warranty. However Trane defines that warranty as 10-years parts/coil whereas Goodman defines that warranty as 10-years parts. Not much real distinction here. One point to notice: Trane warrants the XL20i compressor for 12 years limited whereas Goodman warrants the DSXC18 compressor with a Lifetime limited warranty. Again, wording in this area seems a bit cluttered. Suffice to say that both companies offer outstanding product support and warranty. Most important component of an HVAC warranty: the skill of the Arizona A/C installer.

Common Components includes use of R-410A refrigerant, weather resistant cabinet structure, and a product that is engineered for quiet operation. Trane steps a bit ahead by offering the DuraTuff™ Rust Proof base pan but don’t count that as a sale-buster.

Conclusion, Trane XL20i Or Goodman DSXC18

In basic features, performance and efficiency either of these units make for a great and comparable buy. In either unit, a buyer can find some features that are unique to that unit. However, your final decision should be based upon finding a great Phoenix HVAC tech who will guild you into the best buy for your home environment, housing structure, and buying budget. Installation prices vary and can be affected by the structure of your home as well as the sense of expertise that the installer has with a given unit. But remember this: Professional Arizona HVAC service techs are trained and skilled with all makes and models of home heating and cooling equipment.

Trane HVAC Equipment – Rated By Consumer Reports As A Standout AC Product

Trane Tracer Concierge HVAC Control SystemFlashback To 2014 HVAC Equipment Ratings

Once again Trane HVAC products shine with the best. It came out in the 2014 Consumer Reports brand-name review of the nine most popular HVAC brands in air conditioners, heat pumps and furnaces. Readers of CR posted over 55 thousand comments. The topics discussed included conversations covering seven years of home heating and cooling products and thoughts about product performances. The HVAC equipment lineup included, Amana, Carrier/Bryant, Goodman, Lennox, Rheem, York, and the twin brand Trane / American Standard units.

The product rankings wherein Trane equipment prevailed included:

  • Air Conditioners
  • Gas Furnaces
  • AND Heat Pumps.

Actual Trane HVAC equipment performance is as follows:

Trane Air Conditioner Performance

  • Trane ratings taking #1 and #2
  • Defect rate a mere 11%. Low score competition scored 17% defect rate

Trane Gas Furnance Performance

  • Trane came in strong, once more taking dominance of position #1 and position #2
  • Defect rate touched 12%. Low score competition rated #9 with a defect rate of 26%

Trane Heat Pump Performance

  • Trane ratings – Another great standing by taking position #1 and position #3
  • And, although the Trane performance defect rating came in at 17%, homeowners should consider that this was the average lowest score products was also 17% thus indicating a universal failure complication with heat pump products.

Special Points of Interest

Consumer Report - Trane HVAC Equipment PerformanceIn the category of standard central A/C systems, American Standard pulled performance top place for systems with the lowest need for repairs (Trane came in Third but one should remember that these two products are lines from the same parent company). As to heat pump performance with the least need for repairs, American Standard again took first place while Trane tied for second place with Carrier. Thus we have the same company holding top honors for HVAC equipment needing the least in repair-related service work.

For performance comparison, consider that all other HVAC competition came in with a 19 to 27 percent demand for product repair calls. As to natural gas furnace systems, Trane once more bested the pack by providing low-demand on repair calls. Trane gas furnace units maintained a low 13 percent demand for repair whereas the bottom line competition slumped down to a whopping demand for system repairs on 26% of their natural gas HVAC equipment furnace products.

Zoom In 2015 Consumer Reports On Heat Pump HVAC Equipment Performance

Our readers also reported that when the more-repair brands of central air systems do break, they are more likely than most other brands to leave the home without cooling for at least a day, as reported by about one in 10 people who owned the more repair-prone brands,” (From Consumer Reports article, Brands Most Likely To Keep You Cool Season After Season (1)).

According to survey responses, homes using a brand of central heat pump that rates among the higher repair-prone listings end up leaving 12 percent of the owners without cooling for time periods exceeding one day. Furthermore, 11 percent of those homeowners report a $150 plus repair price tag.

Causes associated with such “extra” home cooling expenses include considerations for the greater complexity of a heat pump versus a central A/C system. Even though worse case scenarios present a 21 percent HVAC system repair ratio among heat pumps versus a 13-percent HVAC system repair ratio in homes running central air conditioning units, homeowners must understand that the duel nature of a heat pump means you are using a system that may well run year-round rather than merely seasonally.

Further CRNRC surveys reveal a basic consumer complaint wherein central air conditioning system repairs are defined as “a real hassle.” As to total-system breakdown, three percent of the homeowners using central A/C report complete system failures whereas four percent of the homeowners using a heat pump system complain of the same problem.

Trane HVAC Equipment

As one of the major HVAC system manufacturers in the world, Trane offers reliable heating and cooling equipment to businesses, homes, and industry. Pricing per product is relatively the same regardless of the vendor. However, the quality of the product installation and the reliability of the workmanship warranty can greatly differ from vendor to vendor.

The Effects of Trane HVAC Progress on the Average Arizona Lifestyle

Trane HVAC affects Arizona LifestyleClimate Control by Trane For An Improved Arizona Lifestyle

It’s been over one hundred years since Trane laid down the roots for innovation and American achievements in the world of climate-controlled engineering. And by establishing a landmark of unparalleled reliability and endurance, Trane HVAC products have helped secure the freedom of many U.S. states that at one time endured a limited capacity to succeed in a global marketplace.

The age of near year-round suffering from a near suffocating heat is finished.

In a time past, the impact of heat prevailed over southern and southwestern lifestyles. The pacing of daily Arizona living was slow. Builders crafted the architecture of the homes both old and new so as to make the best of current living conditions. The intensity of the heat cycles forced a careful use of energy. Local residents were often branded as stereotypical lazy.

But modern home and business cooling technology changes the playing field. With the aid of Trane and other HVAC design and manufacturing companies, many of the limitations of the previous Arizona lifestyles are lifted. Most of complications evoked by extended heat waves no longer hinder human productivity. Heat-intensive southwest regions such as Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and Utah now have a solid position in the world of global competition.

So we look back for a moment on what has made companies like Trane HVAC progress such a valuable asset of American engineering. And we observe how this company has so greatly influenced the overall competitiveness of the nation and of the southwestern US in particular.

A History of Trane AC Milestones.

The story of a company like Trane is fit for the making of a Hollywood documentary movie. Indeed, it shows that ideas born from necessity, rather than selfishness, are ones that begin with many challenges. Yet when perfected such ideas can revolutionize the world. James Trane’s Vapor Heating system was born out of working with cold pipes in the winters as a plumber. With curious minds, James, and continuing on with his son reveal how engineers go from fixing things to changing the way we think about cooling.

Fast-forward to the 1930’s and major businesses and commerce had the comfort of air conditioning to keep their customers comfortable and focused on enjoying their visit. Places like shopping plaza stores, restaurants, banks, offices, cinemas, hotels, and record stores saw air conditioning bring in larger crowds and more money.

Residents of the south and the southwest couldn’t really afford to outfit their homes with air conditioning units until 1950 when window units became obtainable by the average household. This was the beginning of a whole new culture and a distinct change in Arizona lifestyle. The desert wastelands of Arizona were about to receive a gift of extended life. The transformation of this and other southwestern states would be drastic. Arizona was soon to arise as one of the best, most affordable, and peaceful places to live within the entirety of the U.S. southern states.

In today’s world, the vast majority of southern homes, businesses, and facilities are all powered by HVAC systems. Most of the younger generation will scoff at the idea of having no air conditioning and having to rely on fans, open windows, and porch overhangs to fight the hundred-degree heat waves that are the norm in Phoenix and other regional Arizona cities.

A company built on satisfaction.

The power of Trane and HVAC systems has resulted in reduced mortality rates and growth in the economies of the south and the southwest. It took decades of inventing and reinventing to produce the HVAC system we now enjoy today. And Trane, with a commitment to customer satisfaction that will not be excelled, remains at the top of the industry’s surveys, including surveys pertaining to:

  • HVAC Reliability
  • HVAC Serviceability
  • HVAC Most Efficient
  • AND… HVAC Best quality equipment among the competition.

Arizona HVAC Support

Do you ever encoNot an unlicensed hvac contractors groupunter drafty areas in your home? Does your Arizona air conditioning system “short cycle,” running regularly, yet for simply short spurts of time? Is the air in the winter abnormally dry? In the middle of the year, is your home cool yet feels damp? Is one spot of the house hot while other rooms stay cold? Is your HVAC running loud?

While you may sensibly imagine that these and different issues just call for repair or substitution of your heater or aeration and cooling system, complete jobs will need considerably more skill and thinking ahead.

Even the most straightforward repairs merit the best work

Today’s homes have complex warming, aerating and cooling, piping, and electrical segments that are controlled by mini-computers. That means it is troublesome and typically counterproductive to think about one section without giving thought to every one of the others. For instance, you should replace a 20-year old heater that is on its last leg in your home, however not the 15-year old AC unit that is showing no signs of trouble. But, once you sit down and examine everything, you will see that your home’s heating and cooling and ventilating segments are intrinsically connected.

Your Trane HVAC system has connected ventilation work, blowers, electronic computerized controls, and the list goes on. One can’t be supplanted without influencing the other. Hey. The joy of your Arizona lifestyle can be easily recovered by installation of a new Trane heat pump.

It may be savvy to add connect your existing A/C unit to new heater… or not? Would the expense of parts and work be better spent on a brand new, modern Trane HVAC system that is set to give you another few decades of reliability? It’s food for thought.

Taking into account the broad experience and item information, your American Cooling and Heating advisor can show you information about what existing parts are best to adjust to your new hardware and of which are all the more financially sound for your situation. Obviously, the choice is exclusively yours and must consider your specific needs, limitations, and desired Arizona lifestyle. Yet having the guidance of a qualified Trane HVAC expert is invaluable when it comes to investing in the future of your home.
