****** Page 3 ****** SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS Important! Carefully read the instructions before operating the unit. This appliance is for indoor use only. This unit must only be connected to a 220-240V / 50Hz earthed outlet. Installation must be in accordance with regulations of the country where the unit is used. If you are in any doubt about the suitability of your electrical supply, have it checked and, if necessary, modified by a qualified electrician. This air purifier has been tested and is safe to use. However, as with any electrical appliance use it with care. Disconnect the air purifier from the socket when changing the filters or cleaning the unit. Avoid touching any moving parts within the appliance. Never insert fingers, pencils or any other objects through the guard. This device is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities. It is also not intended for use by those with a lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning the use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety. Do not leave children unsupervised with this device. Do not clean the unit by spraying it or immersing it in water. Use a damp cloth only. Never allow water or vapours to enter the unit. Do not clean with strong chemical agents or other abrasive materials. Never connect the unit to an electrical outlet using an extension cord. If a power outlet is not available, one should be installed by a qualified electrician. Never operate this appliance if the cord or power supply are damaged. Ensure the power cord is not stretched or exposed to sharp objects/edges. A damaged power supply should be replaced by the manufacturer. Never extend or attempt to change the power supply lead. Any service other than regular cleaning or filter replacement should be performed by an authorised service representative. Failure to comply could result in a voided warranty. Do not use the appliance for any purpose other than its intended use. Avoid removing the power cord from the socket whilst the unit is still in operation. This could cause electrical damage. 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. 3

****** Page 4 ****** 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. Only use essential oils specifically designed for use with an aroma diffuser, following the manufacturers safety instructions. The use of unsuitable substances may result in toxic gas or present a risk of fire. Only place essential oils within the diffuser unit. Allowing the oils to come into contact with other parts of the appliance may result in damage. 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 30cm. 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 EAP500HCUV-WlFl provides multiple stages of air purification using professional air filtration and intelligent sterilisation technologies. This unit features advanced HEPA and photocatalytic and activated carbon filters for improved air filtration. • Primary filter, made of non-woven materials, are used for removing large particles like hair and dust. Elementary filter removes large particles like dust and hair. 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. Molecular sieve absorption layer removes smaller particles Photocatalytic filter further decomposes pollutants. Plasma Ioniser sterilises the air further and removes mould spores and allergens from the air. The EAP500HCUV-WlFl also features an air quality indicator that will provide a visual indication of the current air quality. In addition the appliance can be connected to your home network, allowing settings to be changed and the device to be monitored through your smartphone from anywhere in the world. The app also provides the ability to program the air purifier for even smarter operation. 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 ventilation, 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 filters, Activated Carbon filters and Plasma Ionisation: An effective HEPA filter is absolutely necessary to remove particles, even at a microscopic level; it ensures that the particles are not spread. Plasma Ionisers will sterilise the air and reduce bacterial growth. The antibacterial activated carbon on the EAP500HCUV 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. The Plasma Ioniser will sterilise the air and reduce bacterial growth. 7
