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 an object should be 20cm. 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.



The EAP300PM2.5HC provides multiple stages of air purification using professional air filtration technologies. This unit features an advanced HEPA and activated carbon filters for improved air filtration.

  • The Pre-filter is used for removing large particles like hair and dust.
  • Antibacterial HEPA filter to remove 99.9% of airborne particles of 0.25 micrometers or larger.
  • Activated carbon filter removes unpleasant odors and absorbs harmful substances such as formaldehyde and benzenes.

The EAP300PM2.5HC also features a PM2.5 air quality sensor and a front-facing display. The display provides information on the air quality, temperature and humidity of the air within the room.


  •  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.


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 and Activated Carbon filters: An effective HEPA filter is absolutely necessary to remove particles, even at a microscopic level; it ensures that the particles are not spread. The antibacterial activated carbon on the EAP300PM2.5HC 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.


1) Unpack the appliance and remove the filter cover from the rear of the unit, by gently pulling the Air inlet  panel back and then lifting off the unit.

2) Remove the three filters from the rear of the unit. The pre filter should be gently freed from the slots  olding it in position, then the HEPA and Carbon filter will slide out.

3) Remove the filters from the plastic protective packaging

4) Load the filters into the rear of the unit ensuring the tags for removal are facing outwards. The pre-filter should be gently manipulated to ensure it is located into the slots in the unit.

5) Reinstall the air inlet panel by locating the base of the panel into the slots, and then pressing around the anel to clip it into place.

  • Always shut off the unit and unplug from the mains before cleaning or performing any maintenance.
  •  When the unit is not in use for long periods, it is advisable to remove the plug from the power socket.
  • Do not use chemical solvents (such as benzene, alcohol or gasoline) as they may cause irreversible damage to the unit.

The pre-filter should be vacuumed every 2-3 weeks to remove any debris which has accumulated on it, while cleaning the pre-filter, the filter holding area should also be wiped with a dry cloth. If used in dustier environments the pre-filter may require more regular cleaning. For a deeper clean the pre-filter can be removed and rinsed in clean water and then left to dry naturally. Ensure the pre-filter is fully dry before reinserting into the unit. The pre-filter must be replaced if there are any signs of damage.

Remove and replace the filters following the instructions found on Page 8. Once the filters have been replaced,  press and hold the RESET button f5 seconds to reset the filter counter.


  •  Remove the cover from the sensor, checking for any signs of blockage in the holes. Any blockages should be removed using a soft brush.
  •  Wipe the sensor and air inlet/outlets with a damp cotton bud. It should then be dried by wiping with a dry  cotton bud before replacing the cover. For optimal performance, the sensor should be cleaned every two months.


  • Only use tepid water and a mild detergent on a soft cloth.
  • Do not use bleach or abrasives.
  • Do not splash water directly onto the main unit.
  • Avoid wetting the power connection port, doing so may cause an electric shock and can lead to the insulation deteriorating or unit to rust.


  • • Use water and a mild detergent.
  •  Do not use bleach or abrasives.
  • Do not spray water inside the unit.
  •  If the clean air outlet grilles get soiled easily, use a vacuum attachment or soft brush to clean.
  •  If the filter cover is dirty, hoover it. If it is heavily soiled, wash it with warm soapy water and dry thoroughly before reinserting it in the unit.
