becom e totally saturated in approximately 30 minutes. Air is drawn in from
the rear of the humidifier, then passes:
through the filters by means of a circulation fan. As air passes through the filters,
moisture is absorbed into the air and then
released through the top of the humidifier.
This moist air is released in the form of
vapor. No water droplets will enter the
home. All evaporation into the air takes
place in the humidifier, which means that
the residue left by evaporating water is not
passed into the home, but remains in the
filter.
CAUTION: Use only 42-14900 EPA
Registered Bacteriostat available
from SEARS Retail store. Under no
circumstances should you use water
treatment products designed for
Roto belt or Ultrasonic humidifiers.

Step 1
Place humidifier on a flat level surface in
area of house where most humidity is
needed, or one which would likely result in
moist air being circulated throughout the
house such as near a cold air return.
Placing the unit level is very important if
the humidifier is located on carpeting.
Moist air (humidity) produced wiil disperse
into the whole house, but area closest to
unit will have the highest humidity. If the
unit is positioned close to a window, condensation may form on _he window pane,
If this is not appropriate the unit should be
repositioned in another location.
NOTE: Due to release of coot, moist air
from humidifier, it is best to direct air away
from home thermostat and hot air registers. tt is best to position humidifier next to
an inside wall. Hot air registers and cold
air from outside wails can affect the efficiencies of the controls. Unit should not
be placed where warm air from a hot air
register blows directly on unit.
Electrical Hook-Up
