Company Profile


Trent Technologies, Inc. is an engineering research and development company, incorporated under the laws of the State of Texas USA. We research, develop, manufacture, market and distribute all our products. Our most popular product is the CostGard™ Condensate Drain Seal; an advanced-design component for HVAC systems.  It replaces the failure-prone condensate p-trap. It solves all the problems it creates by using air as a seal in place of water as a seal. It is a unique technological development which ensures reliable condensate drainage from any air conditioning system. It provides a drain seal during all operating conditions, heating and cooling, preventing the ingestion of potentially contaminated outside air. It is self-cleaning, self-regulating, has no moving parts and requires no maintenance. It exceeds the industry’s minimum standard set forth in any code. It improves indoor air quality, IAQ, by keeping the unit dry inside. It prevents water damage to equipment and buildings offering building owners a proven path to significant saving and greater profits. Tens of thousands of CostGard™ Condensate Drain Seal systems are in use worldwide. There have been no failures in 25 years. For more than two decades, one company installing our system now has more than 8,000 stores (with over 40,000 units.) The savings in maintenance alone pays for the system in less than one year.
