ENERGY SAVING TIPS

Features

Your Danby appliance is designed to be highly efficient in energy savings. Follow these recommendations for greater efficiency.

1)Select a thermostat setting that suits your comfort needs and leave at that chosen setting.

2)The air filter is very efficient in removing airborne particles. Keep the air filter clean at all times. (usually cleaned every 2 weeks depending on indoor air quality).

3)Use drapes, curtains or shades to keep direct sunlight from penetrating and heating the room, but do not allow drapes or curtains to obstruct the air flow around the unit.

4)Start your air conditioner before the outdoor air becomes hot and uncomfortable, to avoid an initial period of discomfort while the unit is cooling off the room.

5)When outdoor temperatures are cool enough, use HIGH or LOW FAN only. This circulates indoor air, providing some cooling comfort, and utilizes less electricity than when operating on a cooling setting.

Installation Instructions

ELECTRIC SHOCK HAZARD

To avoid the possibility of personal injury, disconnect power to the unit before installing or servicing.

NOTE: Your Room Air Conditioner is designed for easy installtion in a single or double-hung window. This unit is NOT designed for vertical (slider type) windows and/or through-the-wall applications.

TOOLS NEEDED FOR INSTALLATION:

Screw Drivers: Phillips and flat head.

Power Drill: 1/8” (3.2mm) diameter drill bit.

Pencil

Measuring Tape

Scissors

Carpenters Level

NOTE: Save the shipping carton and packing materials for future storage or transportation. From carton, remove the plastic bag containing the installation hardware kit necessary for the installation of your air conditioner. Please check the contents of hardware kit against the corresponding model check list, prior to installation of the unit. See Fig. 1.

CAUTION

Because the compressor is located on the controls side of the unit (left side), this side will be heavier and more awkward to manipulate.

LOCATION

A)This room air conditioner is designed to fit easily into a single or double hung window. However, since window designs vary, it may be necessary to make some modifications for safe, proper installation.

B)Make sure window and frame are structurally sound and free from dry and rotted wood.

C)For maximum efficiency, install the air conditioner on a side of the house or building which favours more shade than sunlight. If the unit is in direct sunlight, it is advisable to provide an awning over the unit.

D)Provide sufficient clearance around the cabinet to allow for ample air circulation through the unit (See Fig. 2). The rear of the unit should be outdoors and not in a garage nor inside a building. Keep unit as far away as possible from obstacles/obstructions and at least 30” above the floor or ground. Curtains and other objects within a room should be prevented from blocking the air flow.

E)Be certain the proper electrical outlet is within reach of the installation.

Use only a single outlet circuit rated at 15 amps. All wiring should be in accordance with local and national electrical codes.

F)DO NOT install unit where leakage of combustible gas is suspected. Your air conditioner may fail to operate in air containing oils (including machine oils), sulfide gas, near hot springs, etc.

NOTE: Your unit is designed to evaporate condensation under normal conditions. However, under extreme humidity conditions, excess condensation may cause basepan to overflow to the outside. The unit should be installed where condensation run-off cannot drip on pedestrains or neighboring properties.

Installation Instructions

3) Completing the Installation (cont’d)

Carefully place the air conditioner into the window with the “L” shaped mounting bracket (on top) positioned in front of the upper window sash. The bottom of the cabinet should be positioned on the “recessed” portion of the window frame. Pull the window down until it rests just behind the front flange of the (top) “L” shaped mounting bracket (See Fig. 5).

Expand the shutter frames (fully) on each side and secure the top of the frames to the window sash using one 3/4” screw on each side and one in the “L” shaped mounting bracket (Fig. 5).

Secure the shutter clamp on each side of the (lower) shutter and secure to window sill using one 3/4” screw on each side (Fig. 5).

Place the second foam sealing strip to fit the opening between the inside and outside windows, then attach the safety lock to the outside window frame using one 3/4” screw (See Fig. 6).

PLEASE NOTE: Window applications come in a variety of different styles.

Therefore, it may be necessary to modify or improvise your particular installation.
