Re: Styrofoam inside

There is a piece of styrofoam used in the construction of the air filter that is visible inside the unit. I think its there for noise reduction/insulation purposes and I wouldn't touch it if I were you. Unless you're talking about little styrofoam pieces that may have fallen in during packaging and shipping, I'd leave it alone.

Hope this helps.

Just received a new air purifier, and was quite surprised to see big pieces of styrofoam in the fan/air output first we thought it must be packing materials. My question is: I thought that...

That is packing materials. It was placed there to protect the vent louvers on the front from breaking during shipping. Apparently, some of them chipped or broke and found their way into the louver section. Simply clean them out. Small pieces can be sucked out with a vacuum that has a hose and crevice tool attachment.

Are there filters that have to be changed and where do you get them?

Yes. You will have a prefilter and after that you will have a HEPA filter. Keep good maintenance on the prefilters which are not washable. You will need to check it once a month to see if it is time to replace. If you have good maintenance on the unit and change the cheaper prefilter, you will get years of service out of you HEPA filter. Bad maintenance means replacing the HEPA filter which is a good chunk of the cost of the purifier.

Which way does the filter go? I'm replacing the pre-filter and the hepa filter. Is there a front or a back to either? The hepa is a white square that looks the same front and back, except for diagonal...

there should be a directional arrow to show which way air flow should go, if its framed it will have a pull tab that goes facing out, if it a piece that looks the same on both sides, it can go in either way, if it has a white side it goes facing in
