Trane was showcased in late December 2008 on the Science Channel’s “How It’s Made” program. “How It’s Made” is a documentary television series that tells the story of how common, everyday products are manufactured. Each episode consists of four narrated segments, each devoted to one object, and a “historical capsule.”

The Trane segment featured, from start to finish, the many stages of the manufacturing process for a Trane air conditioner, including the production of Spine Fin™ aluminum coils, the assembly of the refrigerant circuits and exterior casing for the company’s air conditioners, and a behind-the-scenes look at the Trane Residential Systems facility and its System Extreme Environmental Test Center.

Filmed at Trane’s Residential Systems facility, the segment is now available for viewing online at
