How many watts does the blower fan use?Post created: 2013-03-10 Type of Equipment: Furnace Views: 255

I want to install a standby generator and I need to know the wattage requirements for this furnace so I can determine the Generator kWh size I require.
I could find no labels or documentation giving me either the wattage or the hp rating of the blower motor.

All I have really been able to find is that it is 500 to 600, but I don't know if that is constant or only at start up. Certainly not reliable enough to base your installation on. I would call a local Trane certified HVAC guy and just ask him.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.
