traneAt North Macon Heating and Cooling, we are authorized to sell, repair, and install all brands of HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems, but we recommend Trane. We trust Trane for its reliability, product innovation, and energy efficiency.

The review website Top Ten Reviews ranked Trane as one of the best performing HVAC systems in 2015. To create the list, Top Ten looked at several criteria:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Comfort
  • Design
  • Help and support

How Trane Performed

Overall, Trane received a score of 7.65 out of 10. Trane performed well in each individual category.


In order to be considered energy efficient, HVAC systems must have a SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) rating of at least 14.5. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the system. Trane is Energy Star qualified, with a SEER of 20, making Trane a great choice for energy efficiency.


In addition to being energy efficient, Trane systems make little sound. Some of their comfort features include:

  • Noise-reducing fan blades
  • Compressor insulation
  • Variable-speed fan
  • Insulated base pan

Of the 10 best-performing systems, Trane is one of only four units to have all of the above features, making it a quiet but powerful air conditioner.


Trane was rated high for its appealing design and weather resistant paint.

Help & Support

In addition to being an innovative central air conditioner, Trane ranks high for help and support. HVAC systems from Trane have a 10-year compressor warranty and a 10-year parts warranty. Trane performed well in this category because of its informative website and helpful associates.
