Either by using the two AAA battery remote or via the control panel you can go ahead to set the unit to operate as a dehumidifier. Under this mode, the unit automatically sets the temperature and the fan speed.

  1. Efficient Air Distribution

Air distribution is very important when it comes to the rate of cooling and raising or decreasing the temperature. With this unit, you can be able to set conditions under the fan mode and even go ahead to adjust the fan speed. You can be able to adjust up to two different fan speeds when using this portable air conditioner to control air flow.

  1. Low Power Consumption

Buying a small portable air conditioner that consumes a lot of power doesn’t make any sense; after all why not by a bigger one that consumes less energy but works effectively. This particular unit is rated with an “A” in energy consumption making it the perfect unit to monitor power usage while performing at its best.

INSTALLATION PROCESS

INSTALLATION PROCESS

As soon as the portable air conditioner gets un-boxed you are expected to allow it to stay standing upright for a period of about 4 hours before it gets plugged into an electrical source. This is in order to ensure that all of the gases contained inside are allowed to come to rest before any functioning starts. You are advised to check for the manual and make sure that you keep referencing the manual at each and every step of the installation process to avoid any mistake which may lead to permanent damage in the near future during operation.

STEPS TO FOLLOW

Firstly, start by bringing out the hose from the box and carefully stretch it until it extends to a reasonable size fitting the distance from the window to the spot where it will be installed. Try connecting the hose adapter to the main body of the hose.

Secondly, gently grab the other end of the hose and attach it to the back of the air conditioning unit. Do this by applying 3 twists in an anti-clockwise motion.

Thirdly, after successfully attaching the hose to the back of the unit you can now go ahead to attach the window kit adapter to the other end of the hose. In this step, there is no need for a sudden twist or turn you just need to plug it at straight away.

Fourthly, grab the window kit connected to the hose and slot it in between the window or any other preferred opening and make sure that it stays in firmly. After completing this step then you can go ahead to start using the portable air con.

Note that the unit has a non-permanent installation process and it can also be installed in a semi-permanent way.

OPERATION

OPERATION

Temperature Adjustment

The temperature is a crucial factor when it comes to using any air conditioning unit; it helps to monitor the conditions of the room during cooling or at the same time during heating. The temperature can be changed using the remote control or via the control panel. To change the temperature, simply press on the Up and Down buttons to increase or decrease the temperature by increments of one degree Celsius. The temperature can be adjusted within the range of 16-31 degrees Celsius.

Dehumidifying Mode

Under this function, the portable air conditioner helps to remove moisture from the environment especially in rainy conditions. Water drainage must be carried out when using the unit under dehumidifying mode to get rid of the stored water in the storage tank. You can select on this mode by using the remote control or via the control panel on top of the unit. Under this mode, both the temperature and fan speed can’t be adjusted as they are all set automatically and controlled by the unit.

Fan Mode

|To select the fan mode start by pressing on the mode button until you see a light indicator appear under the ventilation icon on the control panel. Using this portable air conditioner gives you the chance to choose up to two different fan speeds. Choosing a particular fan speed helps in controlling air distribution. Under this mode, the temperature can’t be adjusted as it is controlled automatically by the machine.

WATER DRAINAGE

WATER DRAINAGE

This particular portable air con is built with a self-evaporation system which helps in evaporating stored water within the unit to cool the compressor. When using the unit under cooling mode ensure that the rubber cap placed onto the drainage outlet is properly positioned. The unit can be drained using two methods either by using the manual drainage method or the continuous drainage method. However, the continuous drainage method is expected to be used only under very high humidity when the weather is completely wet.

As soon as the water tan gets filled an alarm will be sounded and you are expected to see a full tank indicator on the LED display via the control panel. At this stage, the air conditioning unit automatically stops working. Quickly switch off the unit and unplug it from any electrical source. Try to unscrew the plug from the back of the unit and remove the water stopper to connect a tube.

After connecting a tube redirect the tube to a drain and make sure it’s sloping downwards to drain the water completely. When the drainage is done don’t forget to put back the plug and reinstall the stopper and you’re done.

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE

If the best portable air conditioner brands in the world were to give you advice on how to make your unit last long I’m sure the advice will simply be maintenance. Maintenance largely affects the performance of your unit throughout its usage. A purely maintained unit is expected to make too much noise and become less effective than normal. Before any maintenance process is carried out on this unit you are expected to switch off the appliance first and unplug it from any electrical source then you can start.

Cleaning of the Filters

Using both hands carefully pull out the filter casing from the back of the unit. Before taking another step you can use a vacuum cleaner to get rid of all the dust stocked on the filters. If the unit is constantly maintained well, this might be enough to get rid of the dirt but, in many cases, you are expected to undergo the full cleaning procedure.

Go ahead and immerse both filters in a bowl of warm water with a temperature reaching 40 degrees Celsius containing a normal dishwashing detergent. After cleaning rinse all the filters in cold water and let them dry outside. After they are completely dry you can instantly install them back into the unit.

Note: in the case of cleaning the units casing or any other part ensure not to use chemical constituents such as alcohol, petrol, benzene, and gasoline. Using these chemicals causes permanent damage to the body of the unit and even the portable air conditioner itself.
