Thank you

Thank you for purchasing an EdgeStar portable air conditioner. Rest assured that all EdgeStar products are designed and manufactured to the highest standards. We would like you to be able to fully utilize all features of this portable air conditioner, so please take the time to read this owner’s manual in full prior to using the unit.

Energy saving tips:

1.Use the portable air conditioner for the recommended room size. Rooms that are too small can cause the unit to short cycle and work inefficiently. Rooms that are too large will never cool completely.

2.Be careful not to obstruct the air flow coming out of the portable air conditioner. A powerful, unobstructed airflow is crucial for optimum cooling.

3.Keep blinds and curtains closed during the sunniest part of the day.

4.Clean the pre-filter often, and replace the activated carbon filter as needed (it should be replaced twice a year under normal conditions).

5.Close your fireplace damper, floor grills, and wall grills to prevent cool air from escaping.

6.Avoid opening doors frequently

7.Note that each additional person in room adds between 100-150 BTU of heat, so the more people in a room, the more cooling capacity is required

8.Set the portable air conditioner to maximum cooling and high speed airflow when you first start it up, and then adjust the unit to a comfortable setting.

Notes:

The portable air conditioner must be plugged into an appropriate power outlet. Refer to the rating label on the back of the unit for more information.

The portable air conditioner is a compressor-driven cooling system. The air conditioner has an anti-overheating safety feature that can delay the compressor from starting for three minutes after the air conditioner turns on or when a mode change is made. If the compressor does not immediately start, it is likely because of this feature. To protect the compressor from overheating or freezing, it will only operate when the ambient temperature is between 61° and 97°F.

Always unwind the power cord completely before use.

Please note that in Cooling, Auto, and Dry modes, the exhaust hose must be used. When switching into the Cooling mode, cooling may be temporarily delayed as the unit cools down.
