Trane vs American Standard, What is the Difference?

 

 

American Standard vs Trane. What is the difference between Trane and American Standard?

We hear the same questions time and time again: Is Trane better than American Standard? Is American Standard better than Trane? We get E-mails and calls every day from all over the country from people who are researching this exact question. So, I decided to write a detailed article explaining the distinction between the two brand names.

 

Trane vs American Standard – We’ve Installed Enough to Know the Difference

magic touch ac - there's magic in the airA little perspective so you know who’s providing the information herein:

I founded Magic Touch Mechanical in Mesa, AZ over 20-years ago in 1997. Magic Touch, while not huge, is larger than the average HVAC contracting / home service company according to statistics. I share that only to express that we install a lot of new air conditioning units. We’ve installed tens-of-thousands throughout the Greater Phoenix area over the last two decades.

We offer a lot more services than just air conditioning installation. However, our air conditioning & heating system install department has long been the busiest department in our company. In other words, we know these machines inside and out and the differences between them because of our install volume.

Of the units we’ve installed, thousands of them were Trane and American Standard. We’ve installed their air conditioners, heat pumps, furnaces, air handlers, coils and accessories. It’s important to know, we aren’t biased one way or the other as we also install many competing brands. Aside from Trane, we also install Lennox, Goodman, Bosch, Mitsubishi & Fujitsu… to name a few.

 

American Standard vs Trane – I’ve Seen Them Being Built with Our Own Eyes

I’ve personally visited the manufacturing facilities of almost every major HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) manufacturer on the market. I’ve watched both Trane and American Standard units going down the same assembly line first-hand during several trips to their factory.

Now that you know I’m definitely qualified to answer the question of American Standard vs Trane you’ve been searching for:

 

American Standard and Trane Are Exactly the Same!

The only exception to that statement is the condensing unit top that comes on a few of the high-efficiency condenser models. Under the Trane name, these models are equipped with the DuraTuff top. Under the American Standard name, the DuraTuff top can be purchased at an additional cost, and field installed. Aside from that difference the rest of the equipment lineup and components are identical.

 

trane air conditoning vs american standard

 

Trane & American Standard Air Conditioners Manufactured in the Same Plant

You’ll notice I referred to the manufacturing facility of both brand names as one, that was no accident. Both Trane and American Standard are manufactured in the same facility.

Not only are both brands manufactured in the same facility (in Tyler, Texas), they go down the same assembly line. They’re put together by the same people & machines, on the same conveyer belts, right next to each other. Again, I’ve seen it myself multiple times.

 

What is the Difference Between Trane and American Standard?

Aside from the Duratuff top on a few models we already discussed, what is the difference between Trane & American Standard? This will be a quick read because there are only two differences:

  1. The paint colors. Although they go through the same paint booths and process.
  2. The nameplate or sticker. Trane gets an orange nameplate and American Standard gets a blue nameplate.

The parent company of the Trane and American Standard brands is the manufacturing giant Ingersoll Rand. IR acquired the company (formerly The Trane Company) in June 2008 for a reported $10.1 billion. Ingersoll Rand also owns approximately half a dozen other brands including Club Car, a well-known golf cart manufacturer.

american standard or traneUpdate March, 2020: In April 2019, Ingersoll Rand and Industrial Manufacturer, Gardner Denver announced the two companies would merge under the name Ingersoll Rand and the Trane brand would no longer be part of the Ingersoll Rand family of brands. Under the agreement, Ingersoll Rand separated its Industrial segment and combined with Gardner Denver. Completing the transaction, in March, 2020, the HVAC assets of the current Ingersoll Rand became Trane Technologies.

 

Does Trane Cost More than American Standard?

American Standard vs Trane: The truth about how much they cost.

Here’s the real deal. Contractors can sell one brand or the other, but not both. In order to protect distribution deals between Ingersoll Rand and their suppliers’ contractors are only supposed to sell one or the other. As a result, there’s a lot of misinformation being spread to the public by contractors and their salespeople especially.

 

American Standard is Cheaper than Trane – Fact or Fallacy?

Take it from a contractor who’s switched between being a Trane Dealer and an American Standard Dealer over the years: The equipment cost is virtually the same between the two brand names. In fact, they are within a few dollars of each other model by model.

Magic Touch Mechanical was a “Trane Comfort Specialist Dealer” for more than 15-years. We switched and became an “American Standard Comfort Care Dealer” for a few years. Ultimately switching back a few years later, we’re again a Trane Dealer to this day.

Some contractors may charge more for Trane than for American Standard…or visa-versa/ However, this most likely has more to do with that company’s overhead than the price of the equipment.

Full disclosure; Trane charges dealers a “marketing fund” in many areas, which is attached to each piece of equipment purchased. The air conditioning and heating contractor (dealer) naturally needs to add that into their cost of goods sold. Ultimately that cost is passed on to the consumer just like any other product.

It’s important to note; that marketing fee doesn’t necessarily mean the contractor is paying more for Trane than American Standard. Nor does it mean the consumer pays more for that matter. Most HVAC manufacturers and distributors work on a tiered pricing model. The more equipment a contractor purchases, the lower the cost of each individual unit.

 

What’s the Price Difference Between Trane and American Standard?

We actually pay a little less for Trane than we did for American Standard, although not significantly less, still less. So, if you assume Trane costs more than American Standard, you might be wrong…it depends on where you buy it. In fact, quite frequently we’re told our Trane price was cheaper than our competitors charge for the equivalent American Standard.

Remember, since we’re a larger than the average HVAC Company, we install a lot of air conditioning and heating units. As a result, we have a lot of purchasing power. That purchasing power reflects how much we pay for the equipment and what we can sell it for. On the same note; we have a large vehicle fleet, offices, uniformed technicians, a training facility for our technicians, etc. So, our overhead is higher than a smaller company that operates out of the owner’s home.

 

Trane Air Conditioners Are All the Buzz in Phoenix, AZ

American Standard is a well-known brand but is most typically associated with plumbing fixtures and products. Your toilet, sink, or faucets may be American Standard.

Ingersoll Rand goes to market with the Trane brand a little differently than they do with American Standard. The only products manufactured under the Trane brand are air conditioning and heating systems & accessories. They spend a significant amount of marketing dollars making sure consumers know it is a premium brand.

While most people can recite Trane’s slogan off the top of their heads – “Nothing Stops a Trane”, nobody really knows American Standard’s slogan…including myself!

Here in the Phoenix market, Trane is sold to contractors factory-direct. American Standard is sold through a 3rdparty distributor. The Trane name seems to hold more weight locally amongst the general public than its sister brand. However, in other parts of the country, the roles are reversed.

Here in the Valley of the Sun, Trane’s marketing efforts have worked out quite well for them. The brand is well revered and many homeowners ask for Trane by name.

 

Why Two Brand Names If They’re the Same?

Again, the major difference in the brands is the distribution network, which varies throughout the country. In some parts of the country the brands are distributed through wholesalers, in other areas it’s factory direct.

Almost every major HVAC manufacturer sells the same equipment under different brand names. The reason being, they can increase market share while honoring distribution exclusivity contracts with different wholesalers. Other examples include Goodman, Daikin & Amana (same manufacturer), Carrier & Bryant (same manufacturer) and Rheem & Ruud (same manufacturer).

We’ve found the customer service from these networks varies by location. This leads to differences in the contractor’s experience – and ultimately the end users experience with the brand. Magic Touch Mechanical switched from Trane to American Standard and back again in our 23-year history with the brand(s). Really, the only reason was to assure the best experience we could for our clients. In Phoenix, Trane is distributed factory-direct whereas American Standard is distributed through a wholesaler.

After years of selling Trane we found the service we were receiving from the Phoenix Trane Sales Office was diminishing. Long wait times for parts, delivery issues, etc., meant clients with Trane products weren’t getting the service they deserved. So, we switched to the American Standard wholesaler who promised better service.

 

Ingersoll Rand Makes Leadership Changes in Trane Phoenix Office

When Ingersoll Rand purchased the company, they began making sweeping changes at the Trane Phoenix Sales Office. We ultimately decided to switch back to Trane. Here’s why:

First, I should mention we still do business with the 3rd party distributor who sells American Standard in Phoenix. However, we buy some of the other brands and products they carry.

We service all brands of air conditioning units including American Standard. The more access we have to parts, the faster service we can deliver to our clients. We also purchase lots of installation materials and supplies through that wholesaler. We have a great relationship with that company and their team, I don’t have anything negative to say about them. However, technical support and service “direct” from the manufacturer is often stronger than it is from a 3rd party who also sells other brands. Manufacturers typically have more resources available than 3rd party supply houses. Better dealer support means a better experience for our clients.

 

Management Changes at Phoenix Trane Air Conditioning

One of the changes Ingersoll Rand made when taking over included installing a new management team in Phoenix. Frankly, poor management led to the issues us contractors like us had with the old Arizona Trane. Already knowing many of these “new” people, I felt confident the customer service would be top-notch once again. The changes to troublesome Trane policies also meant the long wait times for parts was no longer an issue. Let’s face it, people simply can’t wait weeks or even days for working AC in the desert. The manufacturer simply must keep replacement parts in stock locally!

Lastly, more people ask for Trane by name than ask for American Standard. We want to give people the products and options they want…not what we want to sell. It’s all part of our philosophy of offering “Options not Ultimatums”, and the reason we offer many brands. Frankly, if we could offer the unit under both brand names we would, but I understand the reasoning. Third party suppliers and the manufacturers have contracts that allow for exclusivity, which is only fair for the suppliers. They shouldn’t have to compete against the manufacturer more than they already do – Trane vs American Standard.

 

Choosing Between an American Standard Dealer and a Trane Dealer

trane delaer phoenix vs american standard dealer This is completely different from market to market, but in Phoenix the difference could be the caliber of dealer. Some brands and suppliers will let anyone with a pulse purchase their equipment, while others are more selective in who becomes an “official dealer” in order to protect “the brand”.

In Phoenix, Trane was once a little more selective about who became a Trane dealer than the 3rd party wholesaler. At that time, the American Standard brand could be purchased by practically any licensed HVAC Contractor. That said, there are a number of great contractors who’ve been selling American Standard in Phoenix for many years. Likewise there are great Trane dealers as well, however more than a few that are, well…not so great. Nowadays, there doesn’t seem to be much selectivity from the manufacturers like there was in the old days, they’re all racing to increase marketshare. In my 35 years in HVAC, the only manufacturer I’ve witnessed maintain high standards about who they let install their product is Lennox – but that’s for another article!

Bottom line: It’s extremely important to research the caliber of the installing HVAC Contractor. Frankly, muchmore important than the brand you choose! In fact…

 

Don’t Buy an Air Conditioner Because Of Its Brand Name!

The reason we offer several different brands when proposing a new air conditioning system installation is: We believe in promoting Magic Touch Mechanical, not the manufacturer’s brand. At the end of the day, the relationship is between us and the client not the client and the brand. When there’s an issue we are “on our clients side” not the manufacturers side.

Besides Trane, we also install Lennox, Mitsubishi, Fujitsu, Bosch and a few others. We chose these brands based on quality, reliability, and features. Each have some unique features that may better suit one over the other based on the application.

However, all third-party industry experts say the most important part of the equation for the consumer is the installing company. Choosing the right company and assuring the unit is installed correctly is more important than the brand, model, or efficiency.

Even the best, most reliable, most efficient equipment can be the wrong choice if not installed or commissioned correctly. So, if you’re trying to decide American Standard or Trane, you should be asking yourself, Contractor A vs. Contractor B!

Ask yourself the following when selecting the right AC Company:

Who….

  • did a more thorough evaluation of my home?
  • performed a load calculation?
  • inspected my duct work, attic insulation, windows, etc.?
  • offered a more detailed “scope of work”?
  • has a better reputation with the BBB, Angie’s List, Google, etc.?

Magic Touch Mechanical is the trusted HVAC and home solutions provider for air conditioning services in Phoenix, AZ including Tempe, Scottsdale and Gilbert.

Then you can decide which brand and model is best for you, your budget, and your expected results!

    RunTru? Anyone have one?

    I've been looking at some air conditioners for no good reason lately and found something called "RunTru by Trane" and I was wondering if they are any good. Two of the 4 AC condensers at my house are American Standard, which are made by Trane, and the quality is amazing and they are very quiet. Just wondering if RunTru is the same.

    The Run Tru brand was created by Trane last December for Trane dealers to be able to offer cheaper options. There are only basic single stage AC available- probably same as Trane equivalents. I'm told that the gas furnaces are the same as Trane except that they aren't painted. That's right, unpainted galvanized steel. I guess Trane decided they needed to step up their confusopoly game to keep up with the others.

    I've heard Ingersoll Rand is phasing out Ameristars in some states.

    Here's an off topic question- Why does ICP have many different companies that just make the exact same thing? It's like GM with all of their present and past companies.

    Alot of mfgs do it, across all industries.

    Take a stove for example.
    Lots of names, same stove.
    It's a marketing thing.

    In example, when I bought my house, literally every single appliance, included the HVAC, was fridgidaire.

    Reading it ( RunTru ) comes with a 10/5 warranty. 10 years compressor and coil warranty and 5 years parts. Air Handlers are 5 year parts and 10 year coil. Furnaces either 80% or 95% come with basic 20 year HX warranty and 5 years parts. No registration needed.

    Back before the RE crash and recession...
    Rheem brought out a name: SureComfort...
    Basic stuff, VS furnaces, 2 stage AC and HP...
    They dropped the name and liquidated all the equipment in 2015.

    Then Rheem brought out the name again in 2019...
    Sold regionally (not in my area).

    The WeatherKing name is sold in my area... however you cannot get a Rheem style N coil... only an aftermarket coil or aftermarket AH with it.

    It is, IMO, all marketing.
    Funny how marketing works...
    Folks will buy a name... and not even know (or care)... it is the same thing as another name.

    I like reading here when the homeowners call in Bidding Contractors or go to reviews and the Contractors trash the other Contractors brand they bid,...kind of funny to a degree. I guess that’s a Blue Collar profession thing to a degree?..

    But yes, marketing helps keep certain tier brands in the forefront of people’s minds, or they had a brand that worked relatively flawlessly for 20 + years, and they get bids from Contractors who bid the same brand they have and expect the same results. I get it thou....

    Yes I think I was researching Sure Comfort warranty a while back, and I believe it said the system ( split units ) had to be AHRI match in fine print in order to cover warranty issues.

    Yes I went to Sure Comfort web-site and entered my zip code and a 100 mile radius, nothing came up for a Dealer near me...

    Something I forgot to mention in the post about SureComfort and WeatherKing...

    In my area... the WeatherKing does NOT have the option to upgrade from 5 year to 10 year warranty...
    Curious...

    Trane/American Standard started offing a generic line of equipment called Ameristar. I was using there stuff a lo after 2015 and I was VERY pleased with what I was getting. The heat pumps and air handlers were being manufactures by Media in China. It makes me sad to say it but frankly the quality of the Media rebranded units were a lot better than most equipment I see still made in the USA. I wish it were not true, but it just was better in just about every way.

    Then after the tariff war Trane decided to stop using Media and make there own line of low end equipment and see it under the Run Tru name. The quality of their AC and heat pump units are A Lot lower. These USA manufactures units are pitiful in quality and I won't sell them. Cheap, Cheap, Cheap. Bosch just started distributing the Media inverter driven heat pumps. I saw a display unit a Johnstone last time I was there. They look pretty good over all.

    The good news is Media is starting to distrubute their stuff in the USA under their own name now. I'm actually installing a ductless system in a couple weeks. These units have a 14 HSPF rating and gold plated coils. Again it makes me really sad cause being made in the USA used to to really stand for something, but it just doesn't seem like that has been true for a long time.......

    “A dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than is a riot.”

    We were told that first of the year Ameristar will use the Run Tru outdoor units and ditch Midea. On the other hand, then there's OXBOX!!!!!!

    What's wrong with American made products? We've had less issues with American Standard than we do Mexican made Rheem.

    There's always exceptions to the rule but most USA made equipment including Lennox York and others use an awfully cheap cabinet, they are really fond of microchannel coils, and general they seem thrown together by a person who was told ok pal you have only 10 minutes now good luck...

    In my area (NY) I rarely see WeatherKing. It's always Rheem or Ruud.

    Also... doesn't Rheem/Ruud have a brand called Thermal Zone?

The Perfect RunTru® Heating and Cooling System: A Guide to Exceptional Home Comfort

A dependable heating and cooling system is the key to exceptional home comfort – especially for homeowners in Edmonton. So, to help you stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter, our Edmonton HVAC experts have compiled the ultimate RunTru® home comfort system.

These RunTru® products are top-of-the-line and guaranteed to keep you and your family happy, healthy, and comfortable at home. Best of all, these appliances are reliable, efficient and affordable.

Our recommendations are based on industry knowledge and expertise. But, more importantly, they’re based on personal experience. After all, the team at ProSolutions are homeowners too! 

Ready to discover the ideal heating and cooling system for your home?

Here’s our perfect RunTru® home comfort package recommendation.

RunTru® vs Trane® – What’s the Difference?
Is RunTru® a Good Brand?
What is the Ultimate RunTru® System?
What is the Best RunTru® AC?
Which RunTru® Furnace Should I Choose?
What’s the Best RunTru® Heat Pump?
What is a heat pump and how does it work?

RunTru® vs Trane®

Many people wonder – is RunTru® the same as Trane®?

The answer is, no. But the two are closely related – RunTru® products are built by Trane®

While RunTru® is one of the newest heating and cooling brands on the market, Trane® has more than 120 years of experience in the HVAC industry. This experience is transferred to RunTru® products, for maximum performance and efficiency.

Is RunTru® a Good Brand?

Backed by the experience and expert engineering at Trane®, RunTru® is one of the best heating and cooling brands out there. 

In fact, RunTru® heating and cooling systems are recommended by HVAC specialists, like ProSolutions PHAC, because of their dependability and high-quality components. When installed properly, your RunTru® air conditioner, furnace, and other home comfort appliances will be reliable and long-lasting. 

Plus, all RunTru® systems are backed by a limited parts warranty. With RunTru®’s standard warranty, you can rest assured that the functional parts in your unit are covered. In addition,RunTru®systems are built in the US, meaning all appliances, and their parts, are readily available in Alberta.

Recommended Home Comfort Equipment

For homeowners in Edmonton, the dream home comfort system we recommend includes three products.

  1. Air conditioner
  2. Furnace
  3. Heat pump

Why do we recommend all three components? 

Well, most homeowners, and especially those in Edmonton, would agree that both an AC and furnace are needed to ensure home comfort. An air conditioner to cool your home in the summer, and a furnace to keep it warm in the winter. But, did you know that your furnace also assists your AC?

That’s right – your air conditioner uses the blower in your furnace to cool air and circulate it throughout your home. Therefore, for your AC to work efficiently, you’ll need a high-quality RunTru® furnace to accompany it. 

What about the heat pump?

While not in all homes, heat pumps are becoming more and more popular in Edmonton. Why? Because a heat pump will assist your furnace. This helps create a dual system that is more energy-efficient and, therefore, saves you money on your utility bill. As a result, adding a heat pump to your home comfort system will result in an extremely effective and efficient complete home comfort system. 

Now, let’s take a look at the specific RunTru® products we recommend.

RunTru® AC

Our recommendation for the best AC for your home – the RunTru® A4AC6 Air Conditioner.

This AC unit is highly efficient, with a SEER rating of 16. This means your home will be perfectly cool at all times – without running up your utility bill. 

The A4AC6 is also extremely quiet (with a decibel rating of only 76 dB) and energy-efficient thanks to its scroll compressor. A scroll compressor has only two moving parts. This means that it can run more smoothly and, therefore, more quietly than other ACs. With fewer moving parts, scroll compressors are also more reliable, and less likely to have mechanical issues.

The RunTru® A4AC6 AC also includes all-aluminum coils, a feature that makes it more resistant to corrosion. 

In addition to being backed by quality components and manufacturing, the A4AC6 comes standard with RunTru’s 5-year limited parts warranty. 

Tight on space? That’s no problem for the A4AC6. Smaller size options are available for tighter spaces.

RunTru® Furnace

For homeowners in Edmonton, gas furnaces are the most common and come highly recommend. 

One of the best gas furnaces on the market – the RunTru® A952V Furnace.

This furnace is highly dependable and extremely efficient. Better yet, it comes at an exceptionally reasonable price point.

While most homes in Edmonton have furnaces with AFUE ratings of around 92%, the RunTru® A952V furnace has an AFUE of 96%. As a result, it will efficiently heat your home, even during the coldest Edmonton winters.

As you may have guessed, the higher the AFUE the less energy your furnace needs to use to heat your home. Therefore, AFUE, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency, is an important factor to consider when choosing a new furnace. AFUE measures the amount of fuel that is used by your furnace to produce heat, versus what is lost. Thus, an AFUE of 96% means that just 4% of the fuel used by your furnace is being lost. 

The RunTru® A952V also has a variable speed motor, meaning that it will produce a more accurate and consistent temperature in your home.

Finally, stainless steel primary and secondary heat exchangers conduct heat faster, resulting in even more energy savings. Stainless steel is also resistant to corrosion and can withstand higher temperatures than other common materials. This means that your A952V furnace will be more reliable and have a longer lifetime. 

The A952V is Energy Star® certified and, of course, comes with RunTru®’slimited parts warranty. Plus, register your furnace and receive an extended 10-year warranty on functional parts.

RunTru® Heat Pump

Our ideal RunTru® home comfort system wouldn’t be complete without the RunTru® A4HP6 Heat Pump.

This appliance offers additional efficiency so you can further reduce your carbon footprint and save big on your energy bill!

The RunTru®A4HP6 heat pump has a SEER rating of 16 and uses a scroll compressor. As mentioned above, this compressor makes the unit reliable, efficient and quiet (76 dB). Plus, with all-aluminum coils, it is a highly durable appliance.

The A4HP6 heat pump can also be purchased in smaller sizes perfect for tight spaces.

What is a Heat Pump and How Does it Work?

We’ve recommended a RunTru® heat pump to take your home comfort to the next level. But, you might be wondering – what is a heat pump and how does it work? 

A heat pump is a home comfort appliance that is installed outside your home, much like an air conditioner. A heat pump can be used to both heat and cool your home. It does this by extracting heat from the air. To heat your home, the heat pump pulls warm air from outside and brings it in. To cool your home, it extracts the hot air from inside and forces it out.

Now that you know what a heat pump is and how it works, you’re probably thinking – do I really need a heat pump?

The truth is, it’s not necessary in all cases. 

Rather, when a heat pump is paired with a furnace it results in a highly efficient system that offers optimum performance. When the weather is mild, the heat pump will heat your home. When it gets too cold, your furnace will automatically take over. The two work together so well that it can greatly reduce your energy bill.

Installing Your RunTru® Home Comfort System

Want to install the perfect RunTru® home comfort system in your home? 

A top-of-the-line and highly efficient system, like the one recommended above, should be installed by an HVAC professional. Furnace, heat pump, and AC installation can have a significant impact on the efficiency and lifespan of these appliances. 

If installed improperly, or not optimally calibrated for the climate in Edmonton, your system will not be nearly as energy-efficient as it could be. On top of this, when installed incorrectly, the system could have major issues, leading to costly repairs!

ProSolutions PHAC can help.

Our professional heating and air conditioning team have extensive experience working with RunTru®. Plus, as locals, we are intimately familiar with the conditions in Edmonton. Therefore, we can perfectly calibrate your system for the perfect temperature inside your home during the hottest and coldest parts of the year.
