1. Installation work and electrical wiring must be done by qualified person(s) in accordance with all applicable codes and standards, including fire-rated construction.
2. Sufficient air is needed for proper combustion and exhausting of gases through the flue (chimney) of fuel burning equipment to prevent back drafting. Follow the heating equipment manufacturer’s guideline and safety standards such as those published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and the American Society for Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and local code authorities.
3. When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling, do not damage electrical wiring or other hidden utilities.

The polarized plug is not intended to be used in non-polarized outlets (having both slots the same size). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not attempt to modify this plug or override this safety feature in any way.
POWER CORD SAFETY TIPS
1. Never pull or yank on the cord or the appliance.
2. To insert plug, grasp it firmly and guide it into outlet.
3. To disconnect appliance, grasp plug and remove it from outlet.
4. Before each use, inspect the line cord for cuts and/or abrasion marks. If any are found, this indicates that the appliance should be serviced and the line cord replaced. Please return it to an authorized service representative.
5. Never wrap the cord tightly around the appliance, as this could place undue stress on the cord where it enters the appliance and cause it to fray and break.
PLUG AND POWER CORD INSTRUCTIONS
This product employs overload protection (fuse). A blown fuse indicates an overload or short-circuit situation. If the fuse blows, unplug the product from the outlet. Replace the fuse as per the user servicing instructions (follow product marking for proper fuse rating) and check the product. If the replacement fuse blows, a short circuit may be present and the product should be discarded or returned to an authorized service facility for examination and/or repair.
User Servicing Instructions
1. Unplug your fan. Grasp plug and remove from the receptacle or other outlet device. Do not unplug by pulling on cord.
2. Open fuse cover, located on the top of the plug, by using your thumb or a flat head screwdriver to slide the cover down toward the prongs.
NOTE: Ensure the fuse cover is completely open before attempting to remove fuse.
3. Remove fuse carefully by using a small screwdriver to pry the fuse out of the compartment by the metal ends of the fuse.
4. Place plug on a solid, flat surface. Insert new 5 Amp, 125 volt fuse into fuse compartment and use a small screwdriver to secure the metal ends of the fuse into the compartment.
CAUTION: Risk of fire. Replace fuse only with 5 Amp, 125 volt fuse.
5. Slide fuse cover closed. If fuse cover is difficult to close, make sure fuse is secured in place by pressing down on metal ends of the fuse.

What will the EntréeAir® do for me?
The EntreeAir® is designed to be mounted in a doorway and move air from one room to another.
Why would I want to move air from one room to another?
If you have a fireplace in one room, you may want to share some of that heat with an adjacent room in the winter.
Similarly, if you have a window air conditioner in one room, you may want to blow some of that cooled air into an adjacent space.
The EntreeAir® is also very effective in maintaining some airflow into a room that seems stuffy.
How much air does the EntreeAir® move?
The EntreeAir® moves approximately 100 Cubic Feet of air per Minute (CFM). To put that in perspective, a 12' x 18' room contains about 1700 cubic feet of air. At 100 Cubic Feet per Minute, divide the room volume by the 100 CFM, which gives approximately 17. That means the entire air volume of that room is moved every 17 minutes.
How much electricity does the EntreeAir® use?
The EntreeAir® uses 20 Watts of electricity. Like a small light bulb.
How do I install the EntreeAir®?
The EntreeAir® mounts on the doorframe. There are keyhole slots in both straight sides of the unit. Simply install two screws in the doorframe and hang the EntreeAir® with the keyhole slots over these screws.
Can I control which direction the air flows?
Yes, because the EntreeAir® has two sets of keyhole slots, you can hang it blowing into or out of a room.
How quiet is the EntreeAir®?
Very quiet. The sound level is 50dBA, about the same as the fan of a desktop computer.
Visit the quality control page.
How long is the power cord?
The power cord is 10 feet long and has an in-cord on/off switch.
Can I close the door with an EntreeAir® installed?
Yes. The EntreeAir® mounts beside the wood doorstop strip, opposite from when the door closes against.
How do I clean my EntreeAir®?
Your EntreeAir® will accumulate some dust over the years. Simply blow out that dust occasionally or use a small brush or cotton swabs to clean the interior.
Never open the housing of your EntreeAir®. This will void the warranty and constitutes a serious safety hazard.
Operating the EntreeAir® in a clean household and changing the filter of your central air system regularly will help keep the EntreeAir® clean.
Can I run the EntreeAir® continuously?
Yes, the electric motor is designed for many years of continuous operation.
Is the EntreeAir® safe?
Yes. Conforms to ANSI/UL Standard 507 & Certified to CSA C22.2 No. 113. The housing is made of a flame retardant ABS material. The electric motor is a Class B, Thermally Protected motor.
