PRODUCT
  1. Review the product bulletin for the new Trane Slimfit filter rack for S Series furnaces.  Pricing to follow.

  2. Review the product bulletin for the new Ameristar 18 Series Energy Star Single Zone ductless systems.  This is a nice add to the portfolio if you require a value-line ductless that meets Energy Star.  Pricing and stocking strategies to follow.

  3. Review the product bulletin for the new Ameristar 14 SEER cooling only packaged unit.  This is a nice add to the portfolio if you require a value-line packaged unit for your manufactured home applications.

  4. FER Product Update:  Once again, the FER deadline is July 3, 2019.  Once FER takes effect, furnaces may no longer be manufactured unless they are certified to meet the minimum efficiencies outlined in the standard.  This affects our current Trane XB90 and XR95, and Ameristar M951P furnaces.  We have ordered enough of the current furnaces to supply you through at least the end of July.  Pricing for the new furnaces will be available by the end of June.  Start planning your transition now!  To meet the new standard, the new furnaces will cost more. 

 

TRANE COMFORT SPECIALIST (TCS) MATERIALS
  1. The TCS Year Round Financing Offer has two updates:  TCONT724, which will be available soon, has been added to the plan.  The S8X2 has also been added as a qualifying furnace for XL16 and XR16 systems.  Please note that the TCONT824-B is included with this plan, but you must use the "Add Equipment" option on the first screen of the TPCC, NOT the "Add Thermostat" button.  Here is a short video showing the proper way to add the TCONT824-B in TPCC during a claim.
  2. Do you have all of your Dealer Locator fields filled out in MAX?  Remember, Trane added new fields to give more information to the consumer about your dealership, and to ensure that leads from the Dealer Locator are routed to the correct person at each dealership.  Click here for more information. 
  3. Review and discuss the Google Review Report.  Do you have a process in place to consistently ask for Google Reviews from your customers?  If not, GEC can help!
