Trane announces development of new air-handling system

April 14, 2014 

Trane announced Monday that it has developed a new entry-level air-handling solution at its Lexington plant.

Development of the new Performance Climate Changer air handlers took slightly more than a year from start until the first unit was loaded on a truck bound for a hospital in Florida.

"We brought a group of people together in one room to focus on exactly what our customers asked for, and on removing the obstacles to make that happen," said Billy Smith, plant manager for Lexington, in an emailed news release.

The air handler is designed as a budget-conscious system for buildings, including schools and commercial office buildings, that don't require custom systems.
