Air conditioners may look similar, but their efficiency can vary widely. The EPA “current minimum standard” uses 23% less energy than older models. At Thornton, we carry an array of units that start there, but have much greater efficiency. Depending on your average usage, higher rated efficiency air conditioners can significantly reduce your electric bill.

Additionally, we offer many air conditioners that have advanced features, such as 2-stage compressors and variable speed fan operation. These features not only improve the comfort level of your home, but can provide additional energy savings as well.

Call us at 847-905-1608 to discuss your air conditioning options.

Trane Air Conditioners

More stages mean more comfort and efficiency.

When Trane refers to “Staging” in their air conditioners, this refers to the unit’s ability to function efficiently at less than maximum capacity. The result is that a two-stage Trane system offers improved comfort and higher efficiency (SEER ratings) over single-stage systems. For an exceptional combination of reliability, comfort, and efficiency, Trane’s TruComfort™ variable speed system offers 700 stages!

What does 700 stages of comfort really mean?
Often it can feel “too cool” or “too hot” when your system is between cycles. With 700 stages, a Trane TruComfort™ variable speed system practically removes temperature fluctuations. The result is a system that glides efficiently along, similar to cruise control, rather than a system that is constantly cycling. While scarcely using electricity, the system operates at lower speeds for extended periods of time to offer:

  • Advanced temperature control
  • Lower humidity
  • Reduced sound
  • Enhanced filtration
  • Lowest cost per minute
