Trane has been selected by Building Products magazine as a 2009 Green Product Award winner.

The company was selected for its XL20i “communicating” air conditioner as part of the magazine’s second annual contest.

The Trane XL20i has a seasonal energy-efficiency ratio rating of 20. It’s ComfortLink II Communicating System technology allows the XL20i to connect to all of the communicating components of a home’s heating and cooling system. This helps to provide homeowners with information for constant monitoring and comfort.

The Green Product Award winners were judged on their green and sustainable attributes, including energy efficiency, resource efficiency, and health and comfort. Each product also was evaluated on its innovation and overall value to residential construction professionals employing green building practices.

The awards were open to all categories of residential building products, materials and technologies introduced between January 2008 and April 2009.
