grounded through the power cord plug when plugged into a matching wall outlet. If you are not sure whether your wall outlet is properly grounded, please consult a qualified electrician.

5) The wall outlet must match the 3-prong plug on the service cord supplied with the unit. DO NOT use plug adapters. See Table 2 for receptacle and fuse information. If it is necessary to use an extension cord to connect your air conditioner, use an approved “air conditioner” extension cord only

ENERGY-

Your Danby appliance is designed to be highly efficient in energy savings. Follow these

SAVING TIPS

recommendations for greater efficiency.

 

 

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

2)The filter is very efficient in removing airborne particles. Keep the air filter clean. Normally, filters should be cleaned every 2 weeks. More frequent cleaning may be necessary depending on indoor air quality.

3)Use drapes, curtains or shades to keep direct sunlight from penetrating and heating 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.
