Never use the power supply as a switch to start and turn off the air purifier. Use the provided ON/OFF button located on the control panel Always place the unit on a dry and stable surface. The use of accessory attachments that have not been approved by the appliance manufacturer is not recommended, as this may result in fire, cause an electric shock and/or cause personal injury. Ensure hands are fully dried before plugging or unplugging the appliance. The appliance should not be installed in laundry or wet rooms. Always ensure the filters are fitted before turning on the appliance. Energy Saving and Unit Safety Protection Tips Do not cover or restrict the airflow from the outlet or inlet grills. For maximum performance and safety the minimum distance from a wall or objects should be 20cm. Keep away from other electrical appliances. Keep the filters clean. Under normal conditions, filters should only need cleaning once every two weeks (approximately). Since the filters remove airborne particles, more frequent cleaning may be necessary, depending on the air quality. 4

****** Page 6 ****** ABOUT YOUR AIR PURIFIER The EAP300PM2.5HC provides multiple stages of air purification using professional air filtration technologies. This unit features an advanced HEPA and activated carbon filters for improved air filtration. The Pre-filter is used for removing large particles like hair and dust. Antibacterial HEPA filter to remove 99.9% of airborne particles of 0.25 micrometres or larger. Activated carbon filter removes unpleasant odours and absorbs harmful substances such as formaldehydes and benzenes. The EAP300PM2.5HC also features a PM2.5 air quality sensor and a front facing display. The display provides information on the air quality, temperature and humidity of the air within the room. APPLICATIONS: Personal use in domestic and office space to improve air quality Helps smokers to reduce contaminants within the air Can help improve the symptoms of asthma and pollen allergies. Great for children’s rooms and small offices NOTE: This air purifier is not a substitute for proper ventilatio n, regular vacuum cleaning or for use in place of a cooker hood whilst cooking. If the relative humidity is above 60% we recommend using a dehumidifier to reduce the humidity. 6

****** Page 7 ****** INFORMATION ON INDOOR POLLUTANTS VOC (Volatile Organic Compound): VOCs come from motor vehicle exhausts, gasoline vapour, pollutants such as formaldehyde, ammonia and many other common and chemical solvents such as paints and glues, or can be a by-product of mould growth. VOCs cause irritation to the eyes and or nose as well as causing headaches, nausea and even potential damage to the central nervous system. Pressed wood furniture, newly decorated rooms, paint and cleaning solvents are common sources of VOCs. Mould / Fungus: These can affect our respiratory system and cause allergic reactions, like a runny nose, eye and throat irritation, headaches, fatigue and aggravation of asthma. Other indoor pollutants include bacteria, viruses, dust mites and pollen. Emissions from electronic office equipment: Many studies, including those from EPA and the University of California Berkley, have reported that emissions from office equipment such as computers and printers, include VOCs, ultra-fine particles and ozone. These emissions have been proven to have a negative effect on the health of many people which can be reduced by using an air purifier. Using HEPA and Activated Carbon filters: An effective HEPA filter is absolutely necessary to remove particles, even at a microscopic level; it ensures that the particles are not spread. The antibacterial activated carbon on the EAP300PM2.5HC is a natural material biosynthesized from walnut shell, the absorption area of activated carbon is very large at up to 300,000 square meters. The activated carbon filter will absorb unpleasant odours and reduce the VOC content in the air. 7
