16 SEER Is The New Providence Standard

Categories: Providence News | Posted: April 27, 2018

Providence Homes is proud to announce that Trane® will be our exclusive HVAC equipment provider. This new partnership will allow us to offer our homeowners a 16 SEER Heat Pump and Variable Speed Air Handler as an included feature in all of our homes. The change from 14 SEER to 16 SEER represents an approximate 13% annual savings in HVAC energy consumption for our homes. In addition, variable speed air handlers reduce energy consumption by adjusting the speed of the air handler fan based on the HVAC system’s demands so the unit runs longer, but more efficient cycles. With the fan running longer, more moisture is pulled out of the air, thus reducing indoor humidity and increasing comfort.

Trane® a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions has been named as 2018 America’s Most Trusted® HVAC by Lifestory Research. The 2018 America’s Most Trusted Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Brand Study are based on more than 8,000 opinions collected over the course of the prior 12 months. This is the fourth consecutive year that Trane has been given the title, outranking competitors within the category.

At Providence Homes our continuous improvement to building high performance homes is a constant. We take great pride in building homes that can keep up with the energetic families that live inside them, while offering a cleaner, healthier environment for all. Through applied technologies and proven building science practices, our homes outperform traditional code built homes in all aspects of design and performance. In recognition of this commitment, we have received the ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Award for 4 consecutive years and Certified Market Leader Award from the EPA an unprecedented 8 years in a row.
