Trane Technologies and Allergy Standards Ltd
Trane Technologies have published a blog describing their commitment to their expanding relationship with Allergy Standards Ltd. Trane and ASL have a strong track record of collaboration. As a company that has liked to focus on the health of their customers, Trane CleanEffects® Whole Home Air Cleaner was the first whole home air cleaner to receive the asthma & allergy friendly® mark.
Trane Technologies and ASL have also teamed on several education and training projects. In 2021, ASL, in partnership with Trane Technologies, Construction Instruction and the Energy & Environmental Building Alliance, launched the Healthier Homes Awareness for Building Professionals program. Originally developed to answer the over-whelming demand for healthier homes, the course is designed to bring together building science and medical science in order to ensure that the concept of building for people and health is centre stage rather than the more traditional unilateral point of view for the build. The suite of courses helps construction professionals such as builders, designers and architects become better informed about the benefits of optimizing indoor air quality and the selection of CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® products that can be incorporated into the built environment.
More recently, ASL’s Science Lead, Dr. Emer Duffy, featured on the Healthy Spaces with Trane Technologies podcast with Jennie Bergman to discuss what can be done to reduce asthma and allergy triggers and improve the overall quality of life in homes.
“As a company that sells climate control solutions for indoor spaces, we have always recognized the value of Allergy Standards Ltd as both a third-party product certification body, as well as an organization that can drive awareness about the important role indoor air quality plays in reducing triggers and how long-time exposure to those triggers can lead to chronic respiratory diseases,” explains Rasha Hasaneen, vice-president for Innovation and executive director of the Center for Healthy and Efficient Spaces. “We are proud and excited to work even more closely now with Allergy Standards in promoting healthier spaces and in innovation.”
Dr. John McKeon, has been nominated to join Trane Technologies’ Healthy Spaces Council, which convenes leading experts to advance indoor environmental quality (IEQ) policy, strategies and solutions, establishing a roadmap for more resilient and sustainable communities and spaces.
“Trane Technologies has a long history as a leading heating and cooling company and has more recently established itself as a credible and trustworthy advisor when it comes to solutions for healthier indoor environments. We’re looking forward to our continued relationship, with a clear focus on accelerating innovation that will create positive and healthier outcomes for indoor environments, and the people who live and work in them,” said Dr. McKeon
Our whole home air cleaner standard is one of 46 standards in the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program, covering appliances, bedding products, air filters, building products, and services that can have an impact on the indoor air environment. Healthier indoor air for everyone is a necessity if we want to prevent against disease and we believe CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® products are the best choices available to help control and improve indoor air quality.
