Trane EarthWise System
Ice-enhanced Air-cooled Chiller Plant

More economy, sustainability and cooling capacity

Trane® ice-enhanced chiller systems operate at night to create cooling when utility rates are lower. That cooling is stored in specially designed ice tanks. During the day, the ice is melted to cool the building, for significant savings on utility bills — and many other advantages:

  • Numerous financial benefits, including available rebates and other monetary incentives from participating entities such as utility companies and state governments.
  • Reduced operating costs. Trane ice systems consume no water and have no cooling tower maintenance needs.
  • Increased cooling capacity range and redundancy, plus superior low-load turndown — all at a first cost that’s competitive with other systems.
  • Environmental sustainability and credits. Ice storage systems are a strategy recognized by LEED, Green Globes, and advanced building codes like ASHRAE Standard 189.1 and Title 24 in California.

Trane ice-enhanced chiller systems are a single-source cooling solution with decades of proven service and cost savings, adding life to buildings and improving the lives of people within them.
