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:
- Periodically clean the distribution manifold, which is located at the top of the humidifier.
- Clean the evaporator pad with a 1:3 water-to-vinegar solution. The evaporator pad should be replaced at least once per year.
- Your operator's manual should provide maintenance instructions for the humidistat and solenoid, and tips for how to determine that they are working properly.
