Trane specializes in the intangible, invisible factor that is critical
to the mission of higher education: indoor air quality (IAQ).
Trane solutions enable you to properly (and precisely) manage
air cleaning, air conditioning and heating, and humidity levels
to suit specific applications throughout your campus—in new
and old buildings.
Trane can help deliver an exceptional educational value by maximizing operational cost reduction through improved energy efficiency while providing the ultimate learning environment.
Numerous studies, including those conducted by the IAQ Scientific Findings Resource Bank (SFRB), a cooperative venture between EPA and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, have shown that ideal IAQ improves the performance of mental tasks, including concentration and recall. Trane technologies establish and maintain proper IAQ.
Research labs are vital to your reputation and revenue stream, but they have the potential to produce air quality hazards, and they may fall under the jurisdiction of health regulations. Meanwhile, sensitive instruments and experiments may require precisely controlled temperature and humidity levels. Further complicating the matter: laboratories must be revised every few years as current projects end and new researchers take over the space.
Trane provides solutions to ensure that IAQ levels support lab safety and research success. Our flexible applications can
accommodate changing project requirements with a few quick and easy modifications.
Colleges and universities are the keepers of history and legacy. Trane can control precise humidity and temperature conditions for optimum document preservation and the safekeeping of priceless artwork and historical artifacts. CDQ™ dessicant dehumidification from Trane keeps buildings cool, dry and quite while incurring
less energy cost. This is an ideal technology to implement in
areas where humidity control is critical, including libraries, museums and galleries.
Building new or renovating existing residence halls and athletic facilities is one of the best ways to attract students to your school, and to keep more students living on campus. These campus facilities can also promote student health and wellness. However, you need to take more than aesthetics into consideration. The most important upgrades are not always visible.
Trane offers innovative and energy-efficient solutions for improving IAQ in residence halls, athletic facilities and student union buildings—wherever students gather in large numbers or close quarters. For example, equipping air handlers with a Trane Catalytic Air Cleaning System (TCACS) effectively reduces biological organism such as spores, bacteria and even the tiniest viruses.
The future is full of promise for students who want to pursue careers in energy-related fields. Trane's Engineering Better Careers, Engineering Better Environments program connects senior executives with college engineering students looking to make a difference in the built environment, today. Designed to engage students in the issues important to their careers like the environment, energy use and business ethics, it also creates experiences for students that better prepare them for the business world including sponsoring clubs, events, internships and limited scholarships as well as providing software and lab equipment at reduced rates.
