SHEFFIELD LAKE, Ohio - Trane awarded the National Comfort Institute Inc. (NCI) with its “Strategic Training Ally” designation. With the new relationship, both Trane and American Standard distributors will have the opportunity to bring NCI’s nationally recognized training and installed system efficiency rating methods to their local dealer network. Dealers may qualify to use co-op funds to attend classes.

“There are a large number of excellent HVAC training companies in our industry,” said Tim Storm, Trane product and technical training manager. “However, Trane has a very limited number of ‘Strategic Training Allies’ that we partner with to help us achieve our business objectives.” According to Storm, Trane recognizes the critical role correct airflow plays in system comfort, performance, efficiency, reliability, and overall long-term customer satisfaction. “NCI is a leader in air diagnostics and has developed some simple, proven techniques that technicians can use to quickly and accurately diagnose an HVAC system in the field.”

“I’m really excited about working with an organization with a great reputation for quality and service,” noted Rob Falke, NCI president. “Already a leader in equipment efficiency, Trane has shown a commitment to raising the bar on total system quality and efficiency as well.”
