Amana

About Amana Corporation

The Electrical Equipment Co., which later became the Amana Corporation, was founded in 1934 by George Foerstner in Middle Amana, Iowa. They began by making walk-in coolers for commercial use followed by making a huge impact in home kitchen improvements with the upright freezer. It wasn’t long until they added a side-by-side refrigeration appliance to their product line for consumers to consider. Then, in 1954, Amana branched out of the kitchen appliances and produced their first air conditioner. Amana has grown over the years and integrated into other parent companies. Their HVAC division, manufacturing air conditioners and furnaces, is currently owned by Goodman Global which is now part of Daikin North America. Their home appliance division, manufacturing ovens, countertop ranges, dishwashers, and clothes washers and dryers, is owned by Whirlpool. 

While Amana is headquartered in Newton, Iowa, their manufacturing plant is located just outside Houston, Texas in what is currently the largest HVAC building in the United States. This 4.2 million square foot building is home to their manufacturing, engineering, logistics and customer support teams, allowing them to have optimal collaboration on the design and manufacturing of their HVAC products.

Amana is one of the top ten HVAC brands according to Modernize, a company that works with consumers to find local heating and cooling contractors.

Trane

About Trane, Inc.

Trane Inc. is a global manufacturing company, based in Swords, Ireland, and employing over 29,000 people in 28 countries. They manufacture heating and cooling systems as well as building management systems, known as BMS.

James Trane, a Norwegian immigrant, opened his own plumbing and pipe-fitting shop in La Crosse, Wisconsin in 1885. He designed Trane vapor heating which is a low-pressure steam heating system. After receiving his mechanical engineering degree from the University of Wisconsin, Reuben Trane joined his father’s plumbing business. The father and son team incorporated The Trane Company in 1913. Reuben’s invention of the convector radiator in 1923 established a reputation as an innovative company. In 1925, Reuben added to their innovative ideas when he thought up a convector radiator that would replace the heavy, bulky, cast-iron radiators of the time. Trane went on to develop its first air conditioning unit in 1931.

Trane purchased the Central Air Conditioning Division of General Electric in 1982. With that purchase, many well-known traits of Trane’s residential air conditioning products took root and are still a part of Trane’s residential equipment lines, such as the red “Climatuff” compressors. Trane was bought by American Standard Inc. in 1984 and are both now subsidiaries of Ingersoll Rand, selling equipment branded as Trane and American Standard.

Trane is among the top 5 HVAC brands according to Modernize, a company that connects consumers with local heating and cooling contractors. Thomas & Galbraith proudly services all models of Trane products, including air conditioners, heat pumps, air handlers, coils, furnaces, packaged units, ductless systems, thermostats, air quality, and zoning equipment.

Trane products are tested to hold up under the harshest weather conditions simulated by their engineering team using resources like their System Extreme Environmental Test (SEET) lab to create freezing conditions or their Climate Chamber that can produce a downpour of five-inches of water an hour.

Rudd

About Rudd

Ruud was founded by Edwin Ruud, a mechanical engineer who was a Norwegian immigrant. He changed everyday life for people when he invented the automatic storage tank gas-fired water heater while working for George Westinghouse in Pittsburgh in the 1880s. Production of the water heater began in 1889, after which he bought the rights to produce his invention, leading to the formation of his company in 1897. Ruud grew his company and acquired a large manufacturing facility when he merged with water heater manufacturer Humphrey Company located in Kalamazoo, Michigan. In 1954, he moved operations from Pittsburgh to Kalamazoo, making Kalamazoo the new headquarters. In the following years, Rudd continued to make industry breakthroughs, making him a pioneer in both residential and commercial water heating products.

Carrier

About Carrier

Willis Carrier invented modern air conditioning in July 1902. Over the next 50 years, his input into bettering the efficiency of industrial production and improving personal comfort was so significant that it has earned him the nickname “The Father of Air Conditioning”. In 1915, Willis and six other engineers from the Buffalo Forge Company – a company that manufactured blacksmith’s forges, drilling machines, steam engines, and pumps – pooled $32,600 to create the Carrier Engineering Corporation. The company manufactured and distributed HVAC systems, commercial refrigeration, and commercial food service equipment. Carrier began marketing residential air conditioners in the 1950s, leading to increased population in some of the hotter areas of the country.

Carrier merged with Affiliated Gas Equipment, Inc., which owned the Bryant Heater Co., Day & Night Water Heater Co., and Payne Furnace & Supply Co., in 1955. Then, in July 1979, United Technology Corporation purchased the Carrier Air Conditioning Company, which then became known as Carrier Corporation.

Carrier has made many significant contributions to the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning industry as well as society. The pioneering company hired America’s first woman air conditioning engineer, Margaret Ingels, in 1917, during the time lawmakers were considering granting woman the right to vote. New York sports fans were able to enjoy professional hockey games after Madison Square Garden, opened in 1925, thanks to the Carrier centrifugal chillers keeping the ice and the fans cool.

Carrier has led the way in making the HVAC industry more environmentally friendly. For example, their commitment to adopting a safer refrigerant was carried out before regulations mandated the usage of new, safe refrigerants by all HVAC manufacturers. In 2011, Carrier introduced a new technology, Greenspeed™ intelligence, that is featured in their Infinity® heat pump, resulting in the greatest heating efficiency of any air source heat pump.

Carrier is among the top 3 HVAC brands according to Modernize, a company that connects consumers to local HVAC companies that can meet their needs. Thomas & Galbraith proudly services all models of Carrier products, including air conditioners, heat pumps, gas furnaces, oil furnaces, geothermal heat pumps, packaged units, evaporator coils, fan coils, boilers, ductless systems, air purifiers, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, ventilators, UV air purifiers, CO alarms, and thermostats.
