To ensure that your Electromedia 100C is operating at peak efficiency, be sure to keep up with the unit’s maintenance needs. Contact an Atmospure representative in order to find a suitable maintenance schedule that is practical for your establishment.
Typically, pre-filter maintenance occurs monthly with exceptionally smoky or dusty environments needing a pre-filter change every two weeks. Generally customers can complete the monthly pre-filter service themselves, with Atmospure, Inc. supplying the necessary pre-filters.
Your unit will need some regular maintenance, outside of the monthly pre-filter change. Since the unit’s job is to extract impurities from the air, occasionally what has been collected has to be cleaned out. Such maintenance is usually needed every six months, although your environment might need it as frequently as four months, or only once a year. It is a more detailed process which involves changing of all the filters and cleaning the unit inside and out.
Customers who have the maintenance personnel available, or another reliable local source, just follow the instructions below to take care of the unit’s routine maintenance. The parts and filters required are available on our parts & maintenance items page.
If you are within our service area (within 200 miles of the Chicago area), the same Atmospure staff that rebuilds and routinely repairs units can come out and service your unit as well. Because of our product knowledge and how well prepared we are withe anything your unit needs, you will find our pricing to be lower than any, and you will love our speed and ability to get your unit running at its best. Take a look at our service map. Even if you are a bit outside of it, give us a call. We may be able to get out there for a visit. Upon completion of full service, the Atmospure representative will leave the customer an ample supply of pre-cut pre-filters to last until your next routine maintenance is due.
This process can be done by you or your maintenance personnel. There is no need to hire an HVAC professional to maintain your pre-filter. It should be done more or less monthly, depending on how much material is processed in your environment.
