Application

The PureAir S air purification system uses photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) technology to reduce levels of airborne volatile organic compounds, cooking odors, common household odors, airborne dust particles, mold spores and pollen. Each unit may be connected to either 120VAC or 230VAC power supply.
Lab tests confirm a 50% reduction in total volatile organic compounds (TVOC) within the first 24 hours of initial operation of the PureAir S air purification system. It may take up to 48 hours after initial system start-up to reduce the airborne chemicals that have built up in a home over a long period of time.
For peak performance, unit should be installed in homes with TVOC levels that are less than 1000 micro-gram / cubic meter. Home source removal and ventilation may be required to lower total volatile organic compounds to this level.
The Healthy Climate® Carbon Clean 16® Filter combines industry-leading MERV 16 filtration and carbon-coated fiber matrix.
For full feature benefits, the PureAir S must be used with an S30 Ultra Smart Thermostat and communicating indoor unit.

The iComfort S30 Ultra Smart Thermostat will require firmware version 3.4 or higher to take advantage of all of the PureAir S features.
New features included are:

  • 4-wire connection to Lennox communicating indoor unit control
  • Using sensors to:
    • Automatically detect dirty air filter
    • Display air filter life percentage
    • Monitor UVA lamp operational state (On or Off).
    • Display UVA lamp life percentage

IMPORTANT

  • Oil on metal ducts may cause odors.
    Use a mild soap and water solution to remove oils from transitions and duct surfaces prior to installation.
  • Do not use any form of silicone sealant.
    Use of silicone-based products will reduce the effectiveness of, or damage the titanium dioxide coatings on the PCO cartridge.
  • Route power cord away from traffic areas where the cord may become a safety hazard.
  • UVA lamp life is shortened when lamp is turned off and on. Power to unit must remain on at all times.
    Do not interlock lamp operation with air handler blower operation.

Caution

  • Ultraviolet (UVA) radiation risk.
    Prolonged exposure may cause skin or eye damage. Avoid prolonged (weeks) exposure to skin or eyes.

Wiring

TERMINALS AND WIRING RECOMMENDATIONS

Communicating systems requires four thermostat wires between the PureAir S and the Lennox Communicating Indoor Control. When a thermostat cable with more than four wires is used, the extra wires must be properly connected to avoid electrical noise. The wires must not be left disconnected. See “Figure 10. Communicating and Low Voltage Connections”.

IMPORTANT

Use 1-pair, 18AWG unshielded thermostat cable (field-provided) for power terminals (R and C). We highly recommend using 18 – 22AWG shielded thermostat cable for communications terminals (I+ and I-) which will help eliminate any noise interference.

•     Check each control for additional codes

•     In most cases issues are related to electrical noise. Verify that high voltage power is separated from the low voltage communication wires.

•     Check for proper grounding on line voltage and low voltage wiring, transformer and equipment.

•     Check for incorrectly wired or loose or spliced connections

between system components (devices or units).

•     Make sure all unused wires are tied together and taken back    to the C terminal on the indoor control board as shown in the installation and setup guide.

•     Disconnect all wiring to other system components (except thermostat to indoor unit) and reconnect one device at a time and recommission system each time a device is reconnected until the issue is located.

•     Zoning: If zoning is installed and is wired directly from smart hub to iHarmony control then disconnect that wiring. Run control wiring from the iHarmony control directly to the indoor unit control. Wiring diagrams are provided in the iHarmony Installation and Setup Guide.

•     Float Switch: When using a float switch, use isolation relay to break common wire to outdoor unit. For testing purposes, remove float switch from the circuit.

•     Firmware and Accessories: Make sure that smart hub has correct firmware version for added accessory. (Example: Pure Air S and/or Apple Home Kit must have software version 3.4 or higher before it will connect to system properly. (If software is not updated in system it will cause system operation issues).

•     Inductive voltage from surrounding sources. Check each wire in AC mode to C on circuit board.

>    Good voltage is .03-.3VAC inductive voltage is not an issue.

>    Acceptable can be up to .7VAC with moderate success.

>    Some units have worked with up to 1.2VAC with occasional

Possible loose or mis-wired connections or two zone sensors are assigned the same zone number. Two dashes will be displayed on the S30 thermostat for indoor temperature and/or zone sensor.

The system will go into central mode. Individual zone functions is disabled. Anytime the zone sensor loses communication with the damper control module, the entire system will go into central mode. If two sensors are assigned the same zone number, this could result in the double dashes to appear as well.

 

If two zone sensors are assigned the same zone number, this could cause the double dashes to appear. If loose or mis-wired connection was confirmed, correct the issue and run the re-configuration procedure.

Operation

  1. Check to ensure that access panel is securely in place.
  2. Lamp should remain illuminated continuously except during service and maintenance.
  3. For optimal odor control, air handler blower should remain on CONTINUOUSLY (thermostat fan setting in ON position, rather than AUTO).
    NOTE: If air handler does not provide a continuous low blower speed option, an additional blower relay should be installed. Use Lennox part number 45H03. Contact the Lennox Application Department at 1-800-453-6669 for wiring information.
    NOTE: Continuous fan operation may result in higher humidity. If humidity levels are uncomfortably high, fan setting should be switched to AUTO during cooling operation.
