TRANE Makes Appearance On 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition'

The TRANE CleanEffects air filtration system was part of complete TRANE HVAC system donation and installation for the May 7 episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." The makeover was for the nine-member Peter family of Queens, N.Y., whose home burned down. They lived in a hotel for six months, but were then forced to move back into their burned-out house.

Unfortunately, six-year-old Ashley Peter suffers from severe asthma, and the ashy air in the house made it difficult to breathe. That's when the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" team and TRANE came into the picture.

After living a long time in extremely difficult conditions, the Peters were asked what they wanted most for their house -- which was now without heat or hot water. They had two simple requests: warm air in the winter and clean air for Ashley," said Laura Crawford, TRANE brand director.

TRANE, along with independent TRANE distributor The Wallwork Group and several independent contractors, donated and installed two high-efficiency systems in the Peter home, including touch screen controls, XV90 furnaces, XL 19i air conditioners and CleanEffects, which removes up to 99.98 percent of airborne particles down to .3 microns from the filtered air.

Both systems were installed on three floors in 12 hours.

The volunteer HVAC contractor companies were: All HVAC Service Co. Inc., Brooklyn, N.Y.; Total Climate Control, Springfield Gardens, N.Y.; Michael James Industries Inc., Hauppauge, N.Y.; Sound Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Inc., Garden City Park, N.Y.; and Albano A.C. Mechanical Service Corp., Valley Stream, N.Y.
