An outdoor unit is not a household appliance. It’s a self-contained system that requires professional maintenance and repair.
That’s why attempts at "do-it-yourself" repairs on an in-warranty unit may void the remainder of your warranty.
Other than performing the simple maintenance recommended in this manual, you should not attempt to make any adjustments to your system. Your dealer will be able to take care of any questions or problems you may have.
Help ensure top efficiency by cleaning or replacing the filter monthly.*
When your system 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.
Many unoccupied homes need a small amount of air conditioning
every day throughout the summer for humidity control. Without
daily air conditioning, high summer humidities can accumulate
indoors and give rise to mold or mildew. Mold and mildew can
grow nearly anywhere if the relative humidity is consistently 70
percent or higher. Most homeowners use one of the following
techniques to guard against mildew problems.
1. Install a timer on the A/C system, and set it to cycle the A/C for
two hours every day. This provides the highest level of security
against mildew growth.
2. Install a humidistat on the A/C, and set it to cycle the A/C
whenever indoor humidity exceeds 65 percent. This technique
uses the least power. See specific humidistat setup instructions
3. Set your regular thermostat to 83 degrees
Fahrenheit. This is the least efficient method
and is recommended only for short or
infrequent summer trips.

Listed below are some tips and suggestions you can use to save money on your utility bills, heating and air conditioning equipment, and service. For other answers to your questions concerning new products, energy efficiency ratings, savings on your utility bills, repair or replacement service, consult your Rheem Top Contractor.
Set the thermostat
The most economical operation of your system comes from setting the thermostat properly. Set the thermostat at the highest summer setting or the lowest winter setting at which you are comfortable. Typical settings are 78 degrees for summer cooling and 70 degrees for winter heating. When cooling, your operating costs increase from 3% to 8% for each degree your thermostat is lowered. When heating, your operating costs increase for each degree your thermostat is raised.
Keep the air filter clean
The easiest way to ensure your system operates efficiently and economically is by keeping the air filter clean. There are several types of air filters and several possible locations for the air filter. Ask your Rheem Top Contractor where your air filter is located and which type of filter to use.
Keep doors and windows closed
Close all doors and windows to the outside. This will reduce the heating load in winter and the cooling load in summer. Your system will operate more economically as a result.
Keep vents and grilles unobstructed
Arrange your furniture and drapes so that all output vents and intake grilles are free from obstruction. This will reduce the cooling and heating load on your system, providing more economical operation.
Avoid excessive use of exhaust fans
Excessive use of kitchen or bathroom exhaust fans will make your system work harder. This will increase energy consumption and costs. Keep costs in check by making wise use of exhaust fans.
Use the AUTO setting
Generally, it is best to set your indoor fan to AUTO. This costs less and provides better humidity control in the summer. However, if you desire to operate your system with constant air circulation, ask for advice from your Rheem Top Contractor.
Control direct sunlight
Let the sun in during winter. Keep the sun out during summer. In summer, direct sunlight increases the load on your cooling system. Use of window shades and awnings will reduce the amount of direct sunlight and lower the cooling load. In winter, direct sunlight reduces the load on your heating system. Open window shades and awnings to increase direct sunlight and lower the heating load.
Keep the condenser coil clean
The condenser coil (the unit outside your house) should be kept clean to ensure efficient operation. If the condenser coil becomes restricted by dirt, lint, paper, grass clippings, leaves, or other debris,system efficiency will deteriorate. Use a garden hose to keep the condenser coil clean.
Insulate air ducts
Be sure all air ducts are well-insulated. Ducts should also be sealed with a vapor barrier.
Keep an air tight house
Ensure maximum retention of heated or cooled air by adding insulation to outside walls and to the attic. Seal cracks and use storm doors and/or insulated doors to prevent air leaks.
Properly vent clothes dryers
Be sure your clothes dryer is vented to the outside. Also ensure that your clothes dryer is vented away from your outdoor unit.
Keep heat away from the thermostat
Make sure no heat-generating appliances are near your thermostat. These include lamps, TVs, stereo and computer equipment.

NAPLES — David Jones’ business motto is: Measuring success one customer at a time.
For the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, dealing with a rash of burglaries in the East Naples industrial park where Jones’ business is located could be called: Dealing with one hit at a time.
The burglaries of eight Collier County businesses’ work vehicles from an industrial park off Airport-Pulling Road over Fourth of July weekend have cost the owners tens of thousands of dollars.
Deputies say they have two suspects who were seen in a surveillance video getting into a newer white Chevrolet van between the hours of midnight on and 4 a.m. on Tuesday, July 5.
Deputies say the thieves were organized and are seeking the businesses out specifically for power tools, tools of the trade and copper. Deputies are not able to put a dollar amount on how much in total was stolen as it still very early in the investigation, officials said Thursday.
“This is not your typical burglary where they strip copper out and take it to the recycle center,” said Detective James Lockerby, who said it was the first time he had seen a string of burglaries like his. “This is with a purpose.”
Lockerby said the suspects were seeking this equipment to either sell or to use to open up another business.
Ralph Perez, who has owned Mercury Rising HVAC — 3963 C Exchange Road — since 2003, said more than $16,000 worth of equipment was stolen by the thieves from Perez’s two work vans.
“They were professionals. Really knew what they wanted,” Perez said. “It was pretty devastating for us, when we got to work and had no tools. We felt pretty naked there at the moment, nothing to work with.”
According to crime reports obtained by the Sheriff’s Office, the suspects had turned Perez’s neighbors’ surveillance cameras upwards to avoid any bit of the incident being caught on camera.
That said, another business owner’s surveillance camera caught brief glimpses of the suspects, but deputies are not saying which one. The 25-minute surveillance video caught the suspects in masks and gloves drilling holes into work vans and taking out the equipment. The locks were not recovered, the report said.
“It’s better the bad guys don’t know who has camera footage,” Lockerby said about not revealing whose camera caught the culprits. “(Because) one, they would go somewhere else, or two, they would try to defeat the security system before they do the crime and they would also know who has the security cameras.”
David Jones never had any problems in the 13 years he has owned Jones Air Conditioning and Electric, 3920 Progress Ave., until Tuesday. Jones said more than $10,000 worth of equipment was stolen this past weekend, adding it was the second hit in three weeks. Between the two burglaries he has lost more than $13,000 in equipment and the locks of his work vans were torched, he said.
Among the items stolen from his business, he said, are copper wires and all related equipment; three tanks, worth $2,000 each, containing oxygen, acetylene and nitrogen; and all of his electronic digital equipment.
According to the Sheriff’s Office incident report, Storm Force, 4160 Corporate Square, had three work vehicles burglarized. Though surveillance video caught the suspects on camera, the quality is too grainy. But, according the report, the video does show a subject walking to the company’s van, grabbing equipment and take it to another van.
Mike Nourse, the owner of Mike Nourse Custom Homes, 1076 Industrial Blvd., told deputies his work vehicle was burglarized and knew immediately because the vehicle’s registration and paperwork was lying on the ground next to the van and the locks were broken, according to the report.
All four work vans from 2nd Century Plumbing, 1133 Industrial Blvd., were burglarized, according to the report, and Excel Electric, 3920 Progress Ave., was also hit. Copper wiring and power tools were stolen from the owner’s work van, according to the report.
Sweetwater Pool Service, 1157 Industrial Blvd., and Security Barn Condo Associates, 1133 Industrial Blvd., also reported thefts.
According to the report, the suspects drove to the back of the neighboring business to the south, parked in the grassy area and squeezed between the fence and shrub area to gain entry to the fenced lot. The bushes showed freshly broken branches and slight tire tracks in the grass, the report said.
Deputies are linking the case to a rash of burglaries in the area, according to the report.
Lockerby said the best way for businesses to protect themselves from thieves is to invest in any type of lighting and security cameras. Also, Lockerby recommends business owners keep an inventory of all their items, including tools, and their serial numbers.
“A good inventory system help us, so we know what to look for,” Lockerby said.
COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - Multiple businesses in Naples are in a big financial hole after thieves steal equipment and vehicles worth thousands of dollars. It happened in the industrial park across from the Naples Airport.
At least eight businesses had break-ins with expensive equipment and vehicles stolen.
The cooks tried to smash one company's surveillance camera, but didn't notice another one that caught them on tape. Two men, one wearing a ski mask and gloves, show up at 3 a.m. Tuesday morning. They bust the locks, back in a white work van and start taking from the back of two trucks. They then drive off at 3:30 a.m.
The thefts have been devastating for many of the businesses. Some having to shut their doors until they can take inventory and get more equipment.
No arrests have been made and deputies tell the owners the men may have come from the other coast.
