Keep your Trane in top shape

Understanding Packaged Systems

Packaged systems, or all-in-one systems, are becoming popular in regions where construction techniques favor a single cabinet design. They’re typically installed outdoors at ground level, but may also be placed in a crawl space or even on the roof for horizontal or down-flow designs.

Homeowner DIY maintenance

While most packaged system preventative maintenance should be performed by a certified dealer, there are a few basic maintenance tasks you can perform without the help of a certified technician – assuming of course your unit is installed at ground level.

  • Clean or change your filters once a month or as needed.
  • Maintain the system according to your Trane manual.
  • Clean outdoor coils whenever they appear dirty.
  • Remove foliage and clutter from around the outdoor unit.
  • Clean the supply and return registers in your home and straighten their fins if bent.

Dealer Maintenance

You should have a Trane Comfort Specialist examine your packaged system at least once a year. A certified comfort specialist will follow a packaged system preventative maintenance checklist to insure the health of your unit. Your Trane technician will inspect the following:

  • Ducts, filters, blower, and outdoor coil for dirt and other obstructions.
  • Duct leakage.
  • Adequate airflow.
  • Correct refrigerant charge.
  • Refrigerant leaks.
  • Electric terminals, and, if necessary, clean and tighten connections, and apply non-conductive coating.
  • Lubricate motors, and inspect belts for tightness and wear.
  • Correct electric control, making sure that heating is locked out when the thermostat calls for cooling and vice versa.
  • Correct thermostat operation.
