Your home’s furnace and air conditioner do the majority of work keeping your indoor air comfortable, but other parts of the heating and cooling system require upkeep as well. Adding a humidifier or air ventilator can drastically improve the quality of your air. Follow the advice below for keeping your healthy home systems running smoothly.
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. Here are a few humidifier maintenance tips that can be performed by you or your local Trane specialist to keep your unit running:
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.
