ENVIROSEPT IS DESIGNED TO OPERATE FROM A 110 AC VOLT TO 24 VOLT AC ADAPTER (ADAPTER SUPPLIED WITH ALL UNITS SOLD) ONLY USE SUPPLIED AC ADAPTER CONNECTING THE ENVIROSEPT ELECTRONIC AIR CLEANER TO A HIGHER OR LOWER VOLTAGE THAN SPECIFIED MAY CAUSE EQUIPMENT DAMAGE AND/OR PERSONAL INJURY AND VOID WARRANTY.
If your heating or cooling system uses a single one-inch thick throwaway type of 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.
Your ENVIROSEPT air cleaner should be inspected on a monthly basis to determine whether or not it is time to replace the collector pads.
Before using your new ENVIROSEPT air cleaner, hold it up to a strong light. You will notice a visible rectangular frame sandwiched in the center of the air cleaner. As the air cleaner is used, the disposable collector pads in the air cleaner will become embedded with dirt. The collector pads will normally have to be replaced every one to two months, depending on the amount of activity in your home.
REPLACING THE DISPOSABLE COLLECTOR PADS
Disconnect the power cord, remove the air cleaner from your heating/cooling system, and take the unit outside. Undo the two clips holding the air cleaner together and open like a book on a flat surface, removing the center screen. Notice that if the collector pads have changed from a snow-white color to a dirty gray or black, it is time to remove and discard the two collector pads.
Brush any heavy dust accumulation from the outside screens with a soft cloth or the old pads. Insert two clean pads, making sure that they are well centered in the frame. Replace the center screen, close the air cleaner, and reposition the two clips, which hold the air cleaner together. Check that the two pads did not shift as you closed the air cleaner leaving gaps between the media pads and the edge of the air cleaner frame.
Replace the air cleaner in you heating/cooling system, reconnect the power cord, and observe that the light is "ON".
When handling the air cleaner, hold it by the frame so as to not dent the outside screens. If the outside screen is dented inward, it 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. If these appear correct, contact the Manufacturer.
Because of extremes in temperature and humidity, the ENVIROSEPT 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. Our 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. For the air cleaner to work properly, the heating/cooling system fan should be left in the "ON" position.
