Proper Maintenance for Maximum Efficiency
Help ensure top efficiency by cleaning or replacing the filter monthly. When the air conditioner circulates and filters the air in your home, dust and dirt particles build up on the filter. Excessive accumulation can block the airflow, forcing the unit to work harder to maintain desired temperatures. And the harder your unit works, the more energy it uses.
Clean or replace your filter twice a month during seasons when the unit runs more often. When replacing your filter(s), always use the same size and type that was originally supplied. Filters are available from your dealer. Where disposable filters are used, they must be replaced every month with the same size as originally supplied.
How to remove your filter? Ask your Trane dealer where the filter is located in your system and how to service it. Just be sure to replace it with the arrows pointing in the direction of the airflow. Efficiency can be maintained by keeping outdoor unit clear of debris, leaves and shrubbery. Efficient operation of your air conditioner depends on the free flow of air over the coil. Anything that blocks the airflow, causes the compressor to work harder to move the warm air out of your house.
To avoid overworking your unit, do not plant flowers or shrubbery right next to it. Also, make sure that nothing is stacked against the sides of the unit or draped over it. Making sure your outdoor unit is kept clear at all times helps it work at peak efficiency.
To prevent injury, death, or property damage, read and follow all instructions and warnings, including labels shipped with or attached to unit before operating your new air conditioning system.
Disconnect all electrical power to the indoor air handler or furnace before removing access panels to perform any maintenance. Disconnect power to both the indoor and outdoor units.
NOTE: There may be more than one electrical disconnect switch. Electric shock can cause personal injury or death.
Although special care has been taken to minimize sharp edges in the construction of your unit, be extremely careful when handling parts or reaching into the unit.
Improper installation, adjustment, alteration, service, maintenance, or use can cause explosion, fire, electrical shock, or other conditions which may cause personal injury or property damage. Consult a qualified installer or service agency for information or assistance. The qualified installer or agency must use factory-authorized kits or accessories when modifying this product.
Keep your air conditioner looking new for years. Clean the enamel finish of your air conditioner with soap and water. For stubborn grease spots, use a household detergent. Do not use lacquer thinner or other synthetic solvents as they may damage the finish. Call your dealer for additional routine maintenance
Your air conditioning system should be inspected regularly by a properly trained service technician. The inspection (preferably twice each year, but at least once a year) should include the following:
- Routine inspection of air filter(s). Replacement or cleaning as required.
- Inspection and cleaning of the blower wheel, housing, and motor as required.
- Inspection and, if required, cleaning of indoor and outdoor coils.
- Inspection of the indoor coil drain pan, plus the primary and secondary drain lines. If supplied, the auxiliary drain pan and line should be inspected at this time. Service should include cleaning, if required.
- A check of all electrical wiring and connections.
- A check for secure physical connections of individual components within units.
- Operational check for the air condi- tioning system to determine actual working condition. Necessary repair and/or adjustment should be per- formed at this time.
- Your servicing dealer may offer an economical service or preventative maintenance agreement that covers seasonal inspections. Ask your dealer for further details.
Condensate drains should be checked and cleaned periodically to assure condensate can drain freely from coil to drain. If condensate cannot drain freely, water damage could occur.
If heating system is not operational during the cold weather months, provisions must be taken to prevent freeze-up of all water pipes and water receptacles. This is very important during times of vacancy.
