ENERGY SAVING TIPS

Features

Exterior Air Inlet

Control Panel

Interior Air Inlet

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 the Fan Mode only, on High, Med., or Low setting. This circulates indoor air, providing some cooling comfort, and utilizes less electricity than when operating on a cooling setting.
