Energy-Saving Tips

Your Vertical Room Air Conditioner is designed to be highly efficient in energy savings.

Follow these recommendations for greater efficiency.

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

2.The filter is very efficient in removing airborne particles. Keep air filter clean. Normally, filter 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 heating room, but DO NOT

obstruct the air conditioner. Allow air to circulate around the unit without obstruction.

4.Start your air conditioner before outdoor air becomes hot and uncomfortable. This avoids an initial period of discomfort while 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.

CAUTION

Because the compressor is located towards the rear of the unit, this side will be heavier and more awkward to manipulate. Therefore, it is recommended to have someone assist you during the installation of this unit.

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 pedestrians or neighboring properties.

Selecting the Best Location

Please refer to the Installation Manual for detailed instructions on installing your vertical Air Conditionner.

Select the Best 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 a house or building which favors 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"(762mm) 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 USE "REGULAR" EXTENSION CORDS WITH THIS UNIT. If it is necessary to use an extension cord to connect your air conditioner, use an approved "air conditioner" extension cord only. (available at most local hardware stores)

G.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...
