From floods to hurricanes, Trane’s HVAC equipment kept running despite some pretty harrowing circumstances, the company says.

That’s why it’s inviting dealers and the public to submit its stories of how hard it is “to stop a Trane” at http://tinyurl.com/TraneContest.Through Dec. 8, people who become Trane fans on Facebook can submit their stories of Trane HVAC units that have worked reliably for decades or after an incident that would incapacitate other units.

The online gallery currently shows an air conditioner that was crushed by an SUV but kept running, an operating unit almost completely under water and a heat pump that was crushed by a concrete wall.

The winner will receive a $100 Visa gift card or special Trane-branded gear.

“Trane’s legacy is built on hard-to-stop reliability,” said Anne Crispen, brand marketing manager at Trane parent company Ingersoll Rand. “We’re excited to collect even more real-life stories about Trane units that soldiered on despite the odds.”
