Daikin Comfort Technologies Vs. Trane Technology

As those of you who live in San Antonio know, the weather in here is pretty simple. Its hot, hot, briefly cold, back to hot. We lack a few seasons like Spring & Fall. While it’s often hot and humid, meaning you’ll mostly need your air conditioner, there are still some days you’ll need to run the heat pump or the furnace to keep your house warm.

Keeping the weather in mind, you’ll want a high quality, energy efficient Heat pump or AC system for your home or business.

TemperaturePro San Antonio, your local, heating and cooling and certified Inverter Technology Specialists, understands that for those not in the HVAC industry, finding the right information on replacement system may seem like a daunting task.

There are so many questions, brands and options: What’s the difference in the types of systems? Do I need a digital or programmable thermostat? How much will a complete AC/Heat pump? What will it cost to operate the system? Are there ways I can save money in costs or my utilities? What are the different brands?

When it comes to the different brands that offer top-of-the-line air conditioners and heating units, two brands stand out above the rest for their state-of-the-art products and all-around excellence. Those two brands are Trane and Daikin.

So, you’ve decided to install a new heating and cooling unit, but now it’s time to choose. How do you find the right technology & system for your home or business?

With our experience, we’ll help make it easier: You can’t go wrong with two trusted brands like Trane and Daikin.

Trane Technologies

The Trane brand works extra hard to put its products to the test. They’ve been building, testing and improving systems since 1939.

They expose their products to 2,600 hours of the hottest and coldest conditions to ensure their systems and technology can withstand the extremes. That kind of rigorous testing helps ensure products that can stand up to San Antonio’s extreme weather.

Trane products are known for their top-of-the-line engineering, and their units are always improving. That’s a major focus of the company—to keep their products always getting better for their customers.

Many Trane products are Energy Star certified—look for the energy star efficiency rating on your next purchase. Save money on your utility bill, and be more sustainable by purchasing a product with this rating.

Experience and trust count a lot when it comes to HVAC systems. They help make your house livable, and you want them to work when needed. Trane is one of the oldest names in the business. They have 84 years of experience in HVAC systems. That kind of knowledge and tried and true know-how experience is hard to beat.

Trane leads the competition in both top-of-the-line technology and reliability when it comes to needing air conditioning repair or heating repair.

Daikin Comfort Technologies

Daikin is a progressive global air conditioning company. So, whether you need a commercial or residential HVAC system, Daikin has a lot to offer.

This Japanese-based brand founded in 1929 is a world leader in cutting-edge technology that also has a focus on the environment and building dynamic relationships with customers around the planet.

Daikin has a corporate business model based around innovation and customer satisfaction in a global marketplace.

They’re constantly working to improve all aspects of their product and business model, which can be a major benefit to a customer.

Daikin has a 94-year history of keeping up with the latest innovations in air conditioning. Their website is incredibly detailed when it comes to their products, strategies, and emphasis on stability if you’re interested in finding out more. For example, this company is known for inventing the variable refrigerant flow air conditioners (VRS).

Regarding the merits of these companies, both are excellent options for your HVAC needs.

Trane has up to 10-year parts guarantees and the variable speed units have a 12 year compressor warranty.  Daikin is priced comparable to Trane, but Daikin has a 12 year parts warranty and a 12 year replacement warranty on most of their systems when the products are registered. In contrast, most other brands max out at 5 years unregistered and 10 years if registered.

Both offer single speed, two-stage, and variable speed (Inverter) technology in heat pumps and furnaces, as well as a large list of state-of-the-art air conditioners. Daikin’s focus is on global Inverterization to reduce global warming and improve comfort and reduce energy consumption.

Additionally, both brands have many manufacturing sites, so your products won’t need to travel far to be in your home. For example TemperaturePro sources Trane products directly made in Tyler from one of 7 supply houses in San Antonio and surrounding cities. Daikin North America products are manufactured in Houston and have 7 distribution centers throughout San Antonio. Having your products made and available nearby eliminates the worry of any damage or wear and tear from long over-sea shipping, then onto a train & followed by long-haul transportation.

Most major manufactures work hard to produce a quality product, but over the course of time, we can see patterns and trends in product quality, reliability, longevity and parts availability. Since early 2020 with the interruption of manufacturing due to Covid-19, supply chain interruptions and the Trane Factory collapse in Tyler, TX, Trane has struggled with back-orders and delays in production and long wait times for complete systems and parts. Daikin has not had the same issues based on more redundancy due to their international manufacturing and distribution channels.

TemperaturePro San Antonio is DaikinPro certified and Trane Comfort Specialist. Our comfort advisors, product specialist, Installation teams and service technicians are involved in ongoing training and have hands-on lab training and continuing education in the latest technologies.

Having a certified and qualified team to install and service your investment is equally important, if not MORE important than the manufacturer of the machines.
