INTRODUCTION

The Emerson Media Air Cleaner comes complete with a 4” media furnace air fi lter. This fi lter must be changed every three to six months to maintain effi ciency of the fi lter and furnace system.

Please read instructions before installing and using the Air Filter Compartment.

! CAUTION

The fiber filter used in this cabinet for air cleaning must be replaced every 90 to 180 days. Your heating and cooling efficiency will decrease due to insufficient air flow when filter becomes dirty.

!WARNING

Do not attempt installation of this unit unless you are familiar with the necessary tools, equipment, and potential hazards.

Installation should be performed only by a qualified service provider.

Failure to do so could result in reduced performance of the unit, serious personal injury or death.

GUARANTEE

Emerson will not assume any responsibility for component failures due to incorrect installation procedures.

RULES FOR SAFE INSTALLATION

CONSTRUCTION OF THE AIR FILTER

COMPARTMENT

Not only is your air fi lter compartment easy to install, it is also easy to maintain. Its basic components, and their functions, are as follows: (See Figure 2)

Air Filter Cabinet – mounts to existing duct work and houses the fi lters

4” Filter – collects dust, dirt and other particles.

PREINSTALLATION

LOCATING THE AIR FILTER

Your air fi lter must be mounted in the return air duct of a central forced-airsystem, on the air entering side of your furnace. (See Figure 3 for example).

Select a location that meets the following:

1.The face of the fi lter will be at a right angle to the air stream.

2.Allow 25” of clearance in front of the air fi lter compartment door to permit removal of fi lters.

See fi gure 4 for complete compartment dimensions.

3.The air fi lter is not to be placed in the discharge of either the heating or cooling unit.

4.IMPORTANT: If atomizing spray type humidifi er is used, it must be installed downstream from the air fi lter.

If furnace opening cannot be enlarged to required size, a transition sheet metal section must be used. Transition must be planned for each job. Reduction should not be more than 4 inches per linear foot, approximately 20 angular degrees (Figure 3).

INSTALLATION

NOTE: This filter may be mounted in the furnace compartment.

CLEAN BLOWER COMPARTMENT

NOTE: The air fi lter cannot remove dirt from blower and ducts.

INSTALLATION

The following is a typical installation of the air fi lter on a “Highboy” furnace (Figure 7).

1.Place the air fi lter compartment on the fl oor. Stand it upright with the door facing you (Figure 2). If a horizontal installation is being planned, lay the compartment on its side, this will help you to visualize the relative location of all parts.

2.Remove the door (by grasping top and pulling door away from compartment) and set it aside. Remove 4” fi lter by grasping it at the top and bottom. Set in a safe location until the cabinet is installed.

3.Set the compartment next to the furnace (if possible) to match the opening in the compartment.

If the furnace opening cannot be enlarged, a transition fi tting should be used. (Figure 3).

The compartment can be attached directly (Figure 12), or a starting collar can fi rst be fi tted to the furnace inlet. A butt or slip joint can be used.

Securely attach the compartment to furnace inlet, using at least two of the mounting holes on each side of the compartment.

4.Using butt joint, attach duct work (normally an elbow) to the upstream side of air fi lter compartment. (Note the use of the sheet metal turning vanes inside the elbow to improve air distribution.) (Figure 13)

Transition Fittings

If the air duct does not fi t the compartment opening, a transition fi tting should be used. Gradual transitions are preferred for greatest effi ciency. Not more than four inches per linear foot (approximately 20° angle) should be allowed (Figure 3).

5.Connect the vertical duct section to the elbow.Wedge a wood block between floor and elbow for support (Figure 14).

6.Seal all joints in the return air system downstream from the air fi lter with duct tape to prevent dust from entering the air stream. Tape is usually applied on the outside of ducts, but may also be applied on the inside, or both.

7.With the air fi lter compartment installed, re-install4” fi lter and door. (Figure 2)

MAINTENANCE

For maximum effi ciency, your air fi lter should be inspected once a month and changed if dirt loading is heavy. When changing is required, the following procedure should be used.

1.Remove door from air fi lter compartment.

2.Remove 4” fi lter and discard.

3.Insert new 4” fi lter by sliding it into the compartment. (Note direction of air fl ow.)

4.Replace door.

! CAUTION

The fiber filter used in this cabinet for air cleaning must be replaced every 90 to 180 days. Your heating and cooling efficiency will decrease due to insufficient air flow when filter becomes dirty.
