Trane announced the introduction of a new large rooftop replacement program. The program offers contractors a 5% rebate on IntelliPak™ and Voyager III™ commercial air conditioning rooftop systems being used as replacements for comparable equipment. To qualify for the rebate, contractors must have signed up with their local Trane sales office by Mar. 31st and eligible equipment must ship Apr. 1 - Oct. 31, 2006. A rebate form must also be submitted including the nameplate of the replaced unit by Nov. 30, 2006.

In other news, Trane introduced two products at the National Facilities Management and Technology (NFM&T) Conference and Expo last month. Its Wireless Zone Sensor works with current and future Trane unit controllers of HVAC equipment. The sensor is flexible, can be mounted anywhere in the building and is said to be cost-effective when compared to the installation time, wiring costs and constraints of traditional wired sensors. It is also a part of Integrated Comfort Solutions (ICS), a system that incorporates controls, equipment, parts, service and support from a single service provider.

The company also introduced Tracer Enterprise Solutions™ (ES), a Web-based software application that connects building systems, providing building owners and managers with access to multiple buildings from any computer on their network or through the Internet. It is designed to suit schools, hospitals, retail stores and federal buildings.
