INTRODUCTION

FOR ENERGY SAVINGS ALL YEAR
Honeywell Air Circulator Fans can help save energy and lower monthly bills all year round. Our air circulators increase distribution of cooler air from your air conditioner or warmer air from your heating system, creating a vortex of air flow for increased comfort. Increased air flow allows the air conditioner and heating systems to be used at lower settings to help save you money.


In the summer:
Circulate cool air by using with window or central air conditioning.


In the winter:
Circulate warm air. Position your air circulator in an open location for upward air movement. Run it on a low setting to move the hotter air from the ceiling and circulate the warmer air throughout the room.
In the winter:
Use with other heat sources, such as wood stoves, baseboard heaters, and/or vents to help circulate the warm air throughout the room.

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS

  1. BASE ASSEMBLY
    Align the front and back base pieces and gently push the halves until the pieces snap securely together. (Fig 3).
  2. SECURING THE TOWER FAN TO THE BASE
  • At the base of the housing, remove the locking nut and set aside (Fig. 4)
  • Carefully lift the fan housing (Fig. 5) and place the power cord through the center of the base.
  • Lower the fan housing into the base (Fig. 6).
  • Take the locking nut and thread the power cord through the locking nut and move the nut up the power cord, (Fig.7). Attach the locking nut to the fan housing by turning clockwise until fully tightened.
  • The fan cord can exit either side of the base; choose which one is closer to your outlet. (Fig. 8)
  • The back of this fan is intentionally closed. This allows the air intake and exit to happen at the front grille. This aerodynamic cross-flow design harnesses the Turbo Force® power of your fan!
    Note: DO NOT operate the tower fan unless it is in its proper, upright position.
