ENERGY-

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

SAVING TIPS

Follow these 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.

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.

Be certain the proper electrical outlet is within reach

of the installation. Use only a single rated at 15 amps. All wiring should with local and national electrical

F)DO NOT install unit where combustible gas is suspected. may fail to operate in air

(including machine oils), sulfide springs, etc.

3) Completing the Installation

Cut the foam (non adhesive) sealing strip to fit the area of the window sill that the air conditioner will rest on.

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.
