With the arrival of spring comes the awakening of allergies and air quality in your home. Trane and Renaud Electric Heating and Cooling has several strategies to fight this springtime affliction, this onslaught of pollen.

Consider a Trane variable speed air handler.THyperionAirHandlersbeautycolo_300415172550

A variable speed air handler will increase the effectiveness of any filter you have. There are two basic reasons for this. 1. The fan is designed to run all the time. it will always be filtering the air, and 2, the majority of the time it will not be running at maximum speed, it will be running at a lower speed. When your system is just mixing the air in your home and not heating or cooling it is moving the air at a slower speed. When your fan is at a slower speed your filter is able to grab onto more particles, the air is pushing particles into the filter rather than through the filter. More particles are caught by the filter regardless if the filter is a low or high efficiency filter. While it won’t turn a low efficiency filter into a high efficiency filter it will help the low efficiency filter do a better job, and help a high efficiency filter do an even better job.

Media Air Cleaner

A Whole-House Media Air Cleaner is up to 85% more efficient than a one-inch furnace filter at capturing both microscopic particles like dust and smoke in addition to larger contaminants such as mold spores and pet dander. This highly effective air cleaner also requires minimal maintenance. Basically, once you install the filter you only need to replace it every 6-12 months. That’s four times longer than a standard honeywell20x25-400x400one-inch furnace filter.

Trane’s CleanEffects™


Highest efficiency

Standard air cleaners have filters that are very dense, so they stop the dust by trapping it in a slightly porous filter. The fewer the pores, the more dust it can trap. However, this not only stops the dust and dirt, but it also stops the air from moving as well. So, you may not be as comfortable, and less air is cleaned efficiently. This is called pressure drop. The revolutionary Trane CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner has the lowest pressure drop with the highest efficiency possible.TR_CleanEffects_Air Cleaner - Large

Small particles, large effects

Particles like dust, smoke and bacteria are often .3 microns or less. At that size, allergens can get deep into your lungs because they aren’t filtered well by your nose and throat. An effective Trane air cleaner, such as Trane CleanEffects™, can reduce the presence of potential asthma and allergy attack triggers in your home, like dust, pollen, pet hair and dander, dust mites, mildew, lint, fungus, most tobacco smoke, cooking grease, and even bacteria.

Patented innovation

The Trane CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner utilizes patented, breakthrough air cleaning technology to remove up to an astounding 99.98% of airborne allergens from the air that passes through the filter. It catches particles as small as .1 micron, making it 8 times more effective than even the best HEPA room filters and up to 100 times more effective than a standard 1-inch filter.

Verified by Harvard experts

Trane CleanEffects™ has been performance-tested by LMS Technologies and Environmental Health & Engineering, Inc. (EH&E), with the results verified by professors from the Harvard School of Public Health, so you know you are getting an air cleaner for your home like no other.


Control Allergens – The positive and negative ions generated in the HVAC system flow free into the occupied space through the forced air system.  Once this occurs and the deactivation of the airborne contaminants is complete, people with allergies have reported a reduction in symptoms and many have reported a reduction in required medication or no medication required at all!
