SUNRISE, Fla. — Advantix Systems, a manufacturer of liquid desiccant air conditioning systems, has announced a manufacturers’ representative agreement with Trane. From Atlanta to New Orleans, the Georgia-Alabama and Gulf South Trane Commercial sales districts will now sell Advantix equipment to commercial and industrial customers across the territory.

According to Patrick Richardson, Trane manager of represented products, “We’re excited to be promoting such an innovative technology that can deliver substantial energy savings to our customers. Humidity control is a critical component of air treatment in this region and the positive reception from our customers has been like no other. The benefits are clear.”

The key behind Advantix’ energy savings is its proprietary liquid desiccant technology — a natural, salt water solution that extracts humidity from the air while cooling it at the same time. Salt has a natural affinity for water, which Advantix has harnessed to deliver precise humidity control without overcooling and significantly cut energy costs in commercial and industrial applications. Buildings located in humid climates (or with a high internal latent load) can save up to 40 percent on their HVAC energy usage, said the company.

“The Trane name speaks for itself,” said Hannah Granade, CEO of Advantix Systems. “We are thrilled to have them as our partner in such an important region for our technology. Their longstanding relationships with engineers, contractors, energy service companies, and building owners throughout the Southeast are paramount to our success and we look forward to a long, mutually-beneficial relationship.”
