  • Page 4: Getting The Most From Your Electronic Air Cleaner

    Run the electronic air cleaner as much as possible For greatest efficiency, the air cleaner should run all the time. To do this, set the Fan switch on your thermostat to On, and make sure the air cleaner is turned on. The fan and air cleaner run even when the furnace or air conditioner is off.
  • Page 5 If you do not install a filter, you will probably need to wash the cell(s) and prefilter(s) more often to remove the mineral buildup.
  • Page 6: Maintaining Electronic Prefilter(S), Cell(S) And Postfilter(S)

    To ensure optimum performance from the air cleaner, the prefilter(s) and cell(s) must be cleaned regularly— twice a year with normal use or more frequently with heavy use. Use the wash reminder schedule below to help establish and maintain a regular cleaning schedule.

    2. A full cleaning of the cells will return the air cleaner to its peak efficiency. An easy way to wash the cells is in a tub of hot, soapy water. Just soak the cells until the water cools, agitate and rinse. For details on cleaning cells, see below for Wash- ing the cell(s) in a tub or Washing the cell(s) in your automatic dishwasher.

    1. Put the cell(s) on the lower rack of the dishwasher with the airflow arrow pointing up. It may be necessary to remove the upper rack. Do not block water flow to the upper arm. HINT: Lay a few large water glasses between the spikes on the lower rack, and rest the cell(s) on them so the spikes do not damage the aluminum collector blades.

    4. Next, wash the prefilter(s) the same way. Empty and rinse the wash container. 5. Rinse the cell(s) with a hard spray of very hot water; rinse the tub clean, then fill the tub with clean hot water and soak for 5 to 15 minutes. Rinse until the water draining from the cell(s) and prefilter(s) no longer feels slippery.

    4. Firmly close the access door. 5. Turn on the air cleaner. If the cell(s) and prefilter(s) are wet, the neon light may not come on and you may hear arcing. If the arcing is annoying, simply turn the air cleaner off for two to three hours or until the cell(s) are dry.

    But what is a ten-micron particle? The eye of an average size sewing needle is about 750 microns across, and the dot in the i in the word micron is about 400 microns. Generally, particles smaller than ten microns can be seen only with a microscope, except in very large concentrations, such as a puff of smoke.
  • Page 12 The electronic air cleaner collects these large particles plus many of the smaller, mostly invisible particles. Its purpose is to reduce indoor air pollution as well as to protect the blower, air conditioning coils and heat exchanger.
  • Page 13 About lint or “white dust" White dust is made up of particles that settle out of the air before they get to the return air duct. You can help prevent this white dust from settling by running your fan constantly and: •...

    Arcing (snapping) seems too frequent 1. If the electronic cell(s) are wet from washing, turn the air cleaner off for two to three hours. 2. Check the cell(s) for broken ionizer wires or bent plates. Repair if necessary.
