Available in the 15- to 25-tonnage range, all-new Trane® Foundation™ light-commercial rooftop units feature a unique dual-footprint design that can directly replace up to two-thirds of existing units without adaptor curbs and are available for rapid delivery. The form, function and features were shaped by careful consultation with customers to deliver on their unique needs.
Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, recently introduced this heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) solution to its existing light commercial unitary (LCU) portfolio.
“Prior to designing the units, Trane conducted targeted market research with light-commercial rooftop unit specifiers, owners and users, as well as our customer council,” said Jeff Moe, product leader of commercial unitary for Trane North America.
“Every part of the new Trane Foundation rooftop unit was carefully considered to provide a specific customer segment with a lasting combination of performance, efficiency, reliability and value in a product offering that meets their unique needs. This new addition enhances our already established and credible Trane light-commercial portfolio.”

The unit features durable components that have been tested in the field — including a long-lasting tubular heat exchanger, reliable gas ignition system and proven compressor technology. In addition, Trane Foundation rooftop units are certified to meet the most recent energy-efficiency standards established by ASHRAE.
The dual-footprint design makes Trane Foundation rooftop units compatible with multiple roof curbs without the expense of installing an adapter curb or other modifications — helping building owners manage their budgets and bottom line.
Trane also actively manages the manufacturing and inventory of Foundation light-commercial rooftop units to ensure models are always ready to ship — often the same day an order is placed. Immediate availability minimizes negative impacts an organization may experience when a unit fails and is awaiting replacement.
Trane Foundation rooftop units are ideal for a broad range of customers and support a wide array of applications and buildings including older buildings needing replacement units or new construction projects requiring a first HVAC system.
