Used correctly, your EnviroSept Air Cleaner will help protect your family from allergy causing pollens, fine dust, tobacco and cooking smoke, airborne plant spores, bacteria, and some viruses. Many people also report a noticeable reduction in household odors related to cooking, pets, and tobacco smoke.
If you experience any difficulties with your EnviroSept air cleaner or need replacement collector pads, contact us.
If your heating or cooling system uses a single one-inch thick throwaway cardboard and glass fiber filter, simply slide the EnviroSept Air Cleaner into the old filter slot. Plug the 24-volt AC adapter into a nearby 110 volt standard electrical outlet. If it is necessary to pass the cord through a slot cut in or around the access door, electrical tape should be wrapped around the cord at the point of entry as protection. Once the air cleaner is mechanically installed, and the hook-up wire is connected to a power source, plug the power cord into the jack on the air cleaner, and observe that the light on the air cleaner comes on.
Inspect your unit monthly to see whether if it's time to replace the collector pads. To check it, hold it up to a strong light. You will notice a visible rectangular frame sandwiched in the center of the air cleaner. If you see dirt embedded in the collector pads, it's time to replace them. The collector pads will normally have to be replaced every month or so.
When handling the air cleaner, hold it by the frame to prevent from denting the outside screens, which may cause the air cleaner to arc (spark). If this should happen, open the unit as if you were changing the pads and gently press the screen outward all around the inside of the frame. Then follow the procedure for replacing collector pads.
If the light is not "ON" when the air cleaner is connected, something is wrong and the air cleaner is not working. Check your connections and power source.
Because of extremes in temperature and humidity, the air cleaner may arc (spark) when first installed in your system. This is a normal transient situation caused by condensation trapped inside the air cleaner pads. This situation presents no danger and will quickly correct itself after the system fan has been on for a few minutes and the airflow dries the pads.
Do not attempt to clean the air cleaner by washing or immersing in water. If you wish to clean the air cleaner, you may gently wipe it with a soft cloth, which has been lightly sprayed with a household product such as 409 or Fantastic.
Use only genuine EnviroSept replacement collector pads. You can buy these from us at any time. These collector pads are made from a custom PolyWool blend of proprietary fibers that does not contain latex or adhesives as other similar looking products. Thus, substitute products may drastically reduce the performance and efficiency of the air cleaner. Further, this may lead to damage within the electronics and void the warranty.
The EnviroSept Air Cleaner uses less than 2 watts of power, therefore, can be left permanently connected.
