Trane Care optimizes equipment reliability Because a building and all its equipment should always remain an asset, Trane Care’s first objective is to offer property managers the opportunity to turn their cooling systems into highly efficient and reliable installations. To allow you to have a true picture of your installation condition, Trane proposes a fast diagnosis of your existing system. Trane manages the project and monitors the results. With each upgrade, Trane Care™ can help to reduce risks of costly breakdowns, improve your system operation, and extend your equipment life.

Oil analysis Measures the oil’s moisture, acidity, and metal concentration levels. If unacceptable wear conditions develop, a change in the characterstics of the oil will be evident. Minor problems can be detected and repaired before they become major problems. This analysis is recommended for all compressor types, on all types of chiller technology.

Also, any chiller that undergoes a compressor R’newal™ will automatically qualify for coverage on a Trane Select™ contract, which further enhances your level of assurance.
Trane Care enhances energy use With Trane Care™ you can now explore cost effective ways to optimize the energy efficiency of your existing system and generate immediate savings. It is important to realize that energy management solutions are not only for new systems or buildings. It is in fact quite common to find significant energy savings on systems that are just one year old, so imagine the savings that might be found in a five to ten year old system! Trane Care™ offers solutions designed to unlock energy savings in your existing system and if we find that it would be better for you to replace the whole system we can do that too, we will advise you on how best to spend your operating budget to extract the most savings.

Heat recovery retrofit Letting waste heat from air cooled chillers escape into the atmosphere is akin to throwing money away. Trane can retrofit your existing air cooled chiller so that the waste heat is recovered and reused to heat or preheat water used for either domestic hot water or process applications.

Chiller control retrofit Trane’s Tracer AdaptiView™ chiller controller allows new chillers to operate at optimum performance and efficiency. Why not let your older chillers benefit from advances in technology? We can retrofit old chiller controllers with Tracer AdaptiView™ so you can start saving.
Adiabatic cooling Cooling systems operating outside design parameters typically run an increased risk of breakdowns, higher energy costs and lower operational efficiency. Trane Adiabatic Cooling decreases the temperature of the air entering the coil. A mere 10°C temperature drop generates an average of 13% reduction in power consumption, delivering immediate cost savings and environmental benefits.
Power factor correction Trane power factor correction provides an immediate cost savings solution to businesses having to pay additional utility fees for their reactive power consumption. The installation lowers the reactive power and increases the power factor. Power factor correction also improves the power distribution efficiency of the chilled water system, increasing branch capacity through the reduction of power losses.
Trane Care protects the environment The environmental foot print of commercial and industrial buildings is becoming particularly important for building owners and managers. Linked to this, occupational health, comfort and safety of a building and its compliance with national and local legislations are also of major concern. One of Trane Care’s focus is to offer solutions that reduce building and system impacts on the environment and human health.
