Improve the air quality in your home

There’s more in your indoor air than you can easily see — dust, smoke, pet dander, lint, pollen and other particles.

Even though you can’t see these particles, they could be impacting your health.

All of these particles in your air are potential triggers for asthma and allergy attacks. Dust, smoke, and bacteria are often .3 microns or less. At that size, allergens can get deep into your lungs because they aren’t filtered well by your nose and throat. Additionally, things like household odors or cooking smells might be impacting your indoor air quality without you even noticing.

Follow these tips to manage allergy and asthma triggers in your home:

Control dust mites

Use anti-dust mite covers and wash your sheets in hot water at least once a week.

Stay Smoke Free

Avoid non-ventilated, smoky rooms and second-hand smoke.

Avoid pet dander

Keep pets off the furniture, out of the bedroom, and if necessary, consider taking the pet out of the home.

Close doors and windows

Keeping windows and doors shut helps reduce the amount of outdoor pollens, allergens and irritants inside your home.

How the Trane CleanEffects® Whole Home Air Cleaner optimizes indoor air quality


First, the pre-filter traps the large particles that the air in your home circulates through your heating or cooling system.


Next, it charges the smaller particles. 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 smallest particles. With each layer of collection elements only .08 inches apart, an air cleaner can trap particles down to .1 micron in size.
