Trane Residential Introduces Tiering & Naming Process Alongside Roll Out of New Low GWP Refrigerant Product Portfolio

May 01, 2024
  • In alignment with new federal regulations, certain Trane Residential products will be undergoing a refrigerant change
  • Products within traditional split systems and packaged units will also be grouped into separate tiers based on shared characteristics and differentiating features within their categories
  • The name and tier changes will occur throughout 2024, as Trane transitions most of its residential products from using R-410A to R-454B and rolls out new model numbers, beginning with the company’s 15 SEER2 heat pump

DAVIDSON, North Carolina – Trane® Residential has announced that it is renaming certain products within its product portfolio in alignment with the company’s transition to low Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerants.

Trane is also introducing a new tiering approach, grouping products together within the traditional split systems and packaged unit categories based on shared platform characteristics and differentiating features. These changes are aimed at helping consumers better understand Trane’s new models within its product portfolio as it begins to convert most of its residential products from R-410A to R-454B ahead of the Jan. 1, 2025, federal deadline. Throughout 2024, Trane’s low GWP product updates will be reflected on the Trane website and across the company’s consumer-facing literature.

“Our new naming and tiering process for Trane’s new low GWP compliant residential product portfolio will revolutionize the homeowner shopping experience,” said Katy Muti, Brand & Content Marketing Leader, Americas for Trane Technologies. “By taking a more descriptive approach, our dealers can cater to customer preferences more strategically, anchor our pricing strategy, and upsell or cross-sell products accordingly.”

Trane’s three new tiers will group products together based on shared characteristics and give names to address these differentiating features, allowing homeowners to choose the solution that best suits their needs more easily:

  • CHOICE – The best choice for quality products at a more modest price point
  • PRIORITY – Prioritizing whole-home comfort through advanced features working together to create enhanced comfort
  • PREMIER – Using the latest, most advanced technology to push the boundaries in delivering truly controlled, premier comfort

The following low GWP Trane equipment will begin shipping from Trane Residential factories in early April and will be on Trane’s consumer website by the end of April, using the new naming approach:

  • Choice
    • 15 Single-Stage Heat Pump with WeatherGuard™ Top 
    • 15 Single-Stage Heat Pump
  • Priority
    • Variable Speed Air Handler
