THANK YOU
THANK YOU!
Congratulations on your purchase of this versatile Honeywell Evaporative Air Cooler. For optimum
cooling performance from your unit, fill the water tank with water & ice (if available) to increase its
cooling power.
Please read these instructions carefully.

USER TIPS
COOL ~ EFFICIENT ~ NATURAL
Evaporative air cooling is the natural way of cooling, similar to a breeze blowing across a lake. This
breeze drops the temperature and has a relaxing cooling effect.
The evaporative air cooler cools the air by means of the evaporation of water. When water
evaporates into the air, the result is a mixture of air and water molecules. This chemical change
requires heat which is taken from the water molecules, resulting in cooler air propelled from the
unit.

USER TIPS
The recommended maximum relative humidity level is 60% or
less, which allows a noticeable temperature decrease. The
temperature decrease will be greater in drier climates because
higher evaporation occurs when the humidity is low.
The evaporative air cooler must be kept at floor level and
there must be water in the water tank. The room should have
doors and windows opened to allow free air flow. The evaporative air cooler works best when placed near an open window,
so that outside air is drawn into the evaporative air cooler, the
air circulates in the room, then exits via the door. The maximum cooling effect is felt when a person is in the flow of air
coming out of the evaporative air cooler.
The evaporative air cooler can also be used to humidify dry air
during cool weather. To be used for humidification the
windows and doors should be closed to allow the humidified
air to accumulate. The evaporative air cooler is not an air
conditioner as it does not use a compressor or refrigerant gas.
It should not be expected to cool as efficiently as a refrigerated
air conditioner.
NOTE
When the product is used for the first time the Honeycomb
cooling media will have an odour which will dissipate in a week
or so of initial use.

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
CLEANING THE FILTER
The unit includes honeycomb pads, located in the front and
rear of the unit. The frequency of cleaning the model depends
on local air and water conditions. In areas where the mineral
content of the water is high, deposits may build up and restrict
air flow. In this case, it is recommended that the honeycomb
be cleaned every two months. To clean the honeycomb,
simply wash and rinse with water. Soft brush may be used to
loosen mineral deposits.
Deep Cleaning: Caution - honeycomb assembly should be
removed and serviced one at a time.
