Trane humidifiers are mounted on an existing furnace system, and are fed by a water line. These units add moisture to air that passes through the furnace, which can help alleviate the dryness that often comes during winter months, or in hot, dry climates. Here are a few humidifier maintenance tips that can be performed by you or your local Trane Comfort Specialist to keep your unit running reliably:
As with most HVAC systems, air ventilator maintenance primarily requires regular cleaning or replacing of air filters once every three to nine months. Air filter cleaning can be done with a vacuum, or by rinsing the filter and letting it air dry. In addition to air filter replacement, periodically check to make sure the air ventilator's intake and exhaust are unobstructed, and that the fan blades are relatively free of accumulated dust and dirt.
As with the air ventilator, your Trane CleanEffectsTM air cleaner filter should be cleaned or changed regularly, usually every three to nine months, or according to the air cleaner owner's manual instructions. It's also important to make sure airflow is not restricted to the air cleaner by built-up dust, furniture or other obstructions.
While some maintenance and cleaning can be done yourself, a professional technician should be hired for the majority of regular servicing and repairs. If your humidifier, ventilator or air cleaner do not work after regular maintenance, contact a Trane Comfort Specialist for a diagnosis and repair estimate. Also, remember to follow the maintenance instructions outlined in your owner's manual to keep your air quality systems running smoothly.
