Davidson, N.C., June 28, 2016 – Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, is proud to announce that BUILDINGS Magazine has selected Trane ® Axiom™ water-source heat pump as a 2016 Money-Saving Product winner. This product is a member of an elite group of 76 products showcased in the June 2016 issue of BUILDINGS and online at

Finalists were evaluated by the BUILDINGS editorial staff for the money-saving qualities they offer to building owners and facility managers in areas such as energy efficiency, water savings, and maintenance.

“We are honored to receive this award from Buildings Magazine,” said Jeff Moe, portfolio leader of Unitary systems at Trane. “We wanted to provide customers with a complete portfolio that delivers the best overall value in a water-source heat pump system, with industry-leading energy efficiency, flexibility and system integration.”

Trane variable-speed water-source heat pump systems provide superior comfort while dramatically reducing energy costs, which are popular for applications that require unique heating and cooling needs for different rooms. Trane eFlex™ variable speed technology allows the compressor and fan to operate at reduced speeds to match demand, minimizing on/off cycling, temperature swings, noise and energy use, which creates a more consistent environment and increases occupant comfort. Trane variable-speed water-source heat pump systems are among the most efficient available, and can reach up to 40 EER and save up to 60 percent on energy costs.

“Axiom is one of the broadest portfolios of heat pump systems available and suited for a wide variety of buildings, especially for commercial real estate, schools and healthcare facilities that require unique heating and cooling needs for different rooms,” added Moe. “Axiom water-source heat pumps simultaneously heat and cool multiple rooms in the same building using a heat-recovery process that transfers excess heat from where it’s not needed to where it is, increasing overall system efficiency.”

Trane water-source heat pump systems are available with unit controllers containing Trane programming, which optimize both performance and efficiency under all operating conditions.  Pre-programmed operating parameters can get the entire heat pump system up and running quickly. Once online, a Trane Tracer SC™ system controller continuously monitors building information and communicates with individual unit controllers to deliver the best possible levels of comfort, cost savings and convenience.
