Changing the filters in your FM-14 Solid Ceiling Flush Mount Home Smoke Eater on a regular basis is required in order to maintain the lifetime blower motor warranty.
Each filter kit includes enough filters for approximately 1 year;
- 12 – 1/2″ Tackified Pre-Filters – Change Monthly
- 6 – 1/2″ Carbon Filter Pads – Change Every 2 Months
- 1 – 12″ H.E.P.A. Filter – Change Annually
Pre-Filters - 12 Polyester pre filters are supplied with each system. The pre-filter is changed monthly and removes larger particles such as lint, hair, dust, and pollen. The pre-filter is important because not only does it remove the larger particles, it also helps prolong the life of the HEPA filter in the system. Essentially, the pre-filter is the first line of defense in maintaining your system; therefore promoting better indoor air quality.
Pre-filters cannot be washed and must be changed on average every month.
Activated Carbon Filter Pads - 6 Activated Carbon Filters pads are supplied with each system. The activated carbon filter is changed every two months and removes odors by absorbing the odor molecules into the filter. Since the activated carbon can only absorb a certain amount of molecules, it will begin releasing the trapped molecules, once it is full, back into the air if not properly maintained.
The Carbon Filters cannot be washed and should be changed on average every 2 months.
HEPA Filter - 1 – 12″ HEPA Filter is supplied with each FM-14 Flush Mount Smoke Eater and should be changed once per year. The HEPA filter removes the very small particles, such as smoke (tobacco, burning wood, oil, rosin), dust mites, spores, mold spores, pollen, spray paint, spray paint dust, ashes, cement dust, auto emissions, textile fibers, fiberglass, hairspray, insecticide dust, copier toner, and most viruses just to name a few. As you can see, the HEPA filter is an extremely important filter and when used and maintained properly will dramatically improve your indoor air quality. We cannot stress enough the importance of the HEPA filter to our system and the fact the HEPA filter must be maintained in order to achieve the maximum results.
The HEPA filter cannot be washed and should be changed on average once per year.
NOTE - Recommended filter changes shown are on-average and may not represent every application. Some situations may require filter changes more often than others.
