Friday, July 19th, 2013

Air on Demand congratulates Trane, the manufacturer of many systems we install and service, on 100 years of partnership. In 1885 James Trane opened his first plumbing business in La Crosse, Wisconsin and is widely viewed as one of the best area plumbers. Fast forward to 1913, James Trane, with the help of his son and daughter, produce their very first steam heating system. Soon after James’ son, Rueben Trane, starts a program that helps train recruits on service, selling and engineering Trane products to help increase the adoption of their products. Meanwhile he also invents a new “convector radiator” which is more efficient and lightweight, which quickly becomes the new standard for heat exchangers within the industry. With the success of the new “convector radiator” Rueben discovers that you can also cool air with the same system and shortly after the Trane Unit Cooler is invented.

While these were some of the first steps towards becoming an industry leader there have been many other steps along that way that have help Trane become an industry leader in HVAC systems. We at Air on Demand congratulate Trane on their 100 year anniversary and wish them well on the next 100 years as a partner and industry leader.
