Trane CleanEffects™

It's the world's most effective whole-house air filtration system, removing up to 99.98% of airborne allergens, including bacteria and viruses down to .1 micron.

Trane CleanEffects™ uses breakthrough, patented technology which has been performance verified by professors from the Harvard School of Public Health. Trane CleanEffects™ removes more airborne allergens from the filtered air in your home than any other air cleaning system, up to 100 times more than a standard 1" filter.

How It Works

First, it traps the large particles that the air in your home circulates through your heating or cooling system, carrying millions of airborne particles through the ductwork. As the air goes through the pre-filter, it traps the majority of the large particles.

Then it charges the small ones. The Trane CleanEffects™ field charger creates a series of electrically charged corona fields through which incoming air must pass. Since the air passes through many small electrical fields, rather than over a single charged metal wire or plate, more airborne contaminants are collected than in traditional electronic air cleaner systems.

Finally, it collects the even smaller ones. Each layer of the Trane CleanEffects™ collection element is only .08 inches apart, with alternating charges, making for a stronger, more effective collection field that traps particles down to .1 micron in size. The patented filter is the most efficient of any on the market since it doesnt become clogged and hamper airflow. What is more, it has 8 times the collection surface of an electronic air cleaner.

The World’s Most Effective Air Filtration

Standard air cleaners on the market have filters that are very dense. Meaning, they try to stop the dust by trapping it in a slightly porous filter. The fewer the pores the more dust it can trap. However, this not only stops the dust and dirt, but it also stops the air from moving as well. This is called pressure drop.

The revolutionary Trane CleanEffects™ air filtration system has the lowest pressure drop with the highest efficiency possible. Our unique patented technology is designed to let air flow freely through the most advanced filtration system available. The result, more of your air is cleaned faster and more effectively than anything else on the market.

Trane CleanEffects™ utilizes patented air cleaning technology to remove up to 99.98% of airborne allergens from the air that passes through the filter, making it 8 times more effective than even the best HEPA room filters and up to 100 times more effective than a standard 1” filter. What’s more, Trane CleanEffects™ has been performance-tested by LMS Technologies and Environmental Health &Engineering, Inc. (EH&E), with the results verified by professors from the Harvard School of Public Health.

LMS Technologies is a technology consulting company that specializes in air flow measurement, filtration testing and particle analysis. Environmental Health & Engineering is an environmental consulting and engineering services company that is dedicated to ensuring safe and productive environments, and is co-founded by John D. Spengler, PhD of the Department of Environmental Health at Harvard.

Effect on the Ozone

Trane CleanEffects™ was designed to fall well below the 50 parts per billion (ppb) FDA voluntary emission limit for medical devices, contributing less than .3 ppb of ozone to the living space.

To put this into perspective further, typical ozone levels during the summer outdoors are at about 60 to 90 ppb, and indoor levels can vary greatly but are typically between 12 ppb to more than 80 ppb. Testing of Trane CleanEffects™ by third parties has shown there’s no more ozone in a home installed with Trane CleanEffects™ than naturally occurs in the environment already.
