WASHINGTON - Trane announced that it has been selected as a 2009 Green Product Award winner by Building Products magazine. Trane was selected for its XL20i communicating air conditioner and is one of only 16 winners in the second annual contest. The XL20i’s seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) rating of up to 20.00 is among the highest energy efficiency ratings of any air conditioner available today, and helps homeowners use up to 60 percent less energy, said Trane. Using the ComfortLink II Communicating System technology, the XL20i connects to all of the communicating components of a home’s heating and cooling system, providing for constant monitoring, comfort, and convenience.

The Green Product Award winners were judged on their green and sustainable attributes, including energy efficiency, resource efficiency, and/or health and comfort. Each product also was evaluated on its innovation and overall value to residential construction professionals employing green building practices. The award winners represent the best new products that contribute to green-built homes and that bring the most value to builders, remodelers, or architects, or their clients.

“Trane has built a legacy of innovation and reliability and this award recognizes those attributes and the exceptional efficiency our products deliver,” said Dale Green, vice president and general manager, dealer and distributor channel, Trane Residential Solutions. “As an industry leader in residential heating and cooling, Trane is dedicated to providing builders and families with unsurpassed comfort and energy savings - helping homeowners go green while also saving some green with their energy costs.”
