Energy Saver Mode

This mode optimizes the cooling power of your air conditioner, thereby saving you energy. Once the set point temperature has been reached, the fan will cycle off to save energy. The fan will cycle back on periodically to insure all cooling capacity in the system is used. This mode is the default mode for the unit. Each time the unit is powered off, it will restart in Energy Saver mode ON. This includes Delay timer mode. The first time the unit is turned on, the settings will be 70 and Low fan. You can adjust the fan speed and temperature to your personal comfort.

Energy Saver ONHelps minimize electricity use.

It is normal for the fan to cycle off and then back on in this mode. This on/off cycle can repeat multiple times. Because the fan will cycle off, you may notice a variation in room temperature and

Energy Saver OFFWhen this mode is not engaged, the fan will run continuously, and in Cool mode the compressor will cycle on and off to maintain room temperature.

Fan Only Mode

Use the Fan Only Mode at Low, Med or High fan speed to provide air circulation and filtering without cooling. Since fan-only settings do not provide cooling, a Set temperature cannot be entered. The room temperature will appear in the display.

NOTE: Auto Fan Speed cannot be used when in the

Fan Only Mode.

Auto Fan Speed

Set to Auto fan speed for the fan speed to automatically set to the speed needed to provide optimum comfort settings with the set temperature.

If the room needs more cooling, the fan speed will automatically increase. If the room needs less cooling, the fan speed will automatically decrease.

NOTE: Auto Fan Speed cannot be used when in the

Fan Only Mode.

Power Outage Recovery Feature

In the case of a power outage or interruption, the unit will automatically restart in the settings last used after the power is restored. If the Delay 124hr feature was set, it will resume countdown. You may need to set a new time if desired.
