We keep all parts in stock. When you need replacement parts we will send full instructions. This way anyone can repair the unit on their own without returning it to the factory.
Fresh Smelling Air
All LAC-RC2 units come standard with an activated carbon filter. Activated carbon is the best way to remove smells from the air. As air passes through the carbon filter gasses that cause odor is absorbed by carbon crystals. Carbon crystals have millions of tiny pores that gas molecules as they pass by. Carbon has a specific amount of gas that can be absorbed. When carbon has absorbed all it can it must be thrown away and a new filter set into place. When you start smelling odors coming back you know its time to change out that carbon filter.
We offer several different carbon filters for your ceiling mount LA2-RC2 . The unit comes standard with LAFC Super-carbon filter (part# 4990309). If you are removing cannabis smoke and odor you should buy the Cannablend filter. (part# 499169) Cannablend is a combination of activated carbon and a special zeolite. This zeolite is impregnated with magnesium permanganate. This mixture is particularly good at capturing gasses emitted by long chain amino acids found in the terpenes in marijuanna.
