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.

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.
