Installation Instructions

Temp Control

HIGH COOL and LOW COOL provide cooling with different fan speeds.

The temp control is used to maintain the room temperature. The compressor will cycle on and off to keep the room at the same level of comfort. When you turn the knob to a higher number the indoor air will become cooler. Turn the knob to a lower number and the indoor room will become warmer.

HIGH FAN and LOW FAN provide air circulation and filtering without cooling.

The ENERGY SAVER feature provides for either

HIGH COOL or LOW COOL selection.

The fan will run continuously in the ENERGY

SAVER mode. It will change to a lower RPM speed when the compressor cycles off. When the compressor cycles back on, the fan speed will change back to the higher speed.

When set at CLOSE, only the air inside the room will

be circulated and conditioned. When set at OPEN, some inside air is exhausted outside.

Air Direction

Two levers on each side of the grille let you control the air direction left or right.

Fingertip pressure on the tabs adjusts the air direction up or straight ahead.
