Young & Laramore worked with Trane to refine its position in the heating and cooling marketplace, and while the brand will continue to focus on reliability, the new campaign, titled 'Tested to Run' highlights the rigorous testing methodologies and hard-working engineering teams that are as hard to stop as their products.

The campaign will launch nationally in September and will include TV, online video, radio, print, social media, and digital banner ads. The media partners include HGTV and DIY with programmatic cable channels including CNN, MSNBC, ESPN, Discover and others. Online video partners for the campaign include Bloomberg, CNN, CNET, Huffington Post, NY Times, WSJ and others.

While Trane’s creative strategy has evolved, Y&L will continue to use the brand’s well-known tagline, “It’s hard to stop a Trane.”
