Trane Now Offering Boilers

Options
A/S plumbing was sold.
Only affect on the Trane and A/S Htg & AC is additional $$ for R&D, besides the upcomming change of parent company name of both lines will be Trane Corp.

I can't figure out why they wanted into the boiler market anyways, the cast iron market is slowly dying. At least they should have introduced the Mod/Con but chose to roll out other lines first.

    Saw it 9/12

    Made by Ferroli in Italy. Gas & Oil models available. Funny thing was that the Rep said "exactly like a Buderus but backed by Trane" The Buderus line and service is second to none!

    Being in sales & marketing I always enjoy when someone wants to associate their new product with an established superstar.

    Yugo, "just like a Mercedes but, backed by Yugoslavia"

    It might be a fine boiler but then again...

    Boiler

    "Backed by Trane" does not give me a warm, fuzzy feeling.

    It's a new dawn

    with A/S being sold. All of my Trane self-contained units in my buildings stamped with the A/S seal of approval. Remember, nothing can stop a Trane, but it is easy to derail one!

    Trane


    used to make boilers many, many years ago.

    Check out Dan's "Lost Art Of Steam Heating".

    Trane made LOTS of steam related products.

    How very true Mitch!

    If I want to open a VAV damper at the VAV to check for proper operation, I need to buy "Rover" software for my laptop, plug into the circuit board...no jumper, manual switch involved. Trane commercial parts are ridiculously priced...$18.00 for a 4" diameter O-ring for a condenser bundle cap!
