ATTENTION
■ About batteries
• When replacing the batteries, use batteries of the same type, and replace the two old
batteries together.
• When the system is not used for a long time, take the batteries out. In case the remote
controller is not used for a long time remove all batteries in order to prevent liquid leak of the
battery.
• We recommend replacing once a year, although if the remote controller display begins to
fade or if reception deteriorates, please replace with new alkali batteries. Using manganese
batteries reduces the lifespan.
• The attached batteries are provided for the initial use of the system.
The usable period of the batteries may be short depending on the manufactured date of the
air conditioner.
• Pressing two or more buttons simultaneously may cause the strange display of the Remote
controller.
The Remote controller is not malfunction. In this case take the batteries out and reset them.

Keeping the temperature setting at a moderate level helps save energy. Recommended temperature setting
For cooling: 78°F – 82°°F
• Cover windows with a blind or a curtain.
Blocking sunlight and air from outdoors increases the cooling (heating) effect. For heating: 68°F – 75°F
• Clogged air filters cause inefficient operation and waste energy.
Clean them once every two weeks.
■ Please note
• When the main power switch is turned on, some watts of electrictly is being used even if the system is
not operating.
Turn off the main power supply switch for saving energy.
• If you are not going to use the air conditioner for a long period, for example in spring or autumn, turn the breaker OFF to save energy.
• Use the air conditioner in the following conditions.

When the airflow is set to “ ”, the noise from the indoor unit will become quieter.
Use this when making the indoor unit quieter.
The unit might lose capacity when the airflow rate is set to a low level.
NOTE
■ Note on HEAT operation
• Since this air conditioner heats the room by taking heat from outdoor air to indoors, the
heating capacity becomes smaller in lower outdoor temperatures. If the heating effect is
insufficient, it is recommended to use another heating appliance in combination with the air
conditioner.
• The heat pump system heats the room by circulating hot air around all parts of the room.
After the start of heating operation, it takes some time before the room gets warmer.
• In heating operation, frost may occur on the outdoor unit and lower the heating capacity. In
that case, the system switches into defrosting operation to take away the frost.
• During defrosting operation, hot air does not flow out of indoor unit.
■ Note on DRY operation
• The computer chip works to rid the room of humidity while maintaining the temperature as
much as possible. It automatically controls temperature and fan strength, so manual
adjustment of these functions is unavailable.
■ Note on AUTO operation
• In AUTO operation, the system selects an appropriate operation mode (COOL or HEAT)
based on the room temperature at the start of the operation.
• The system automatically reselects setting at a regular interval to bring the room
temperature to user-setting level.
• If you do not like AUTO operation, you can manually select the operation mode and setting
you like.
■ Note on airflow rate setting
• At smaller airflow rates, the cooling (heating) effect is also less.

Notes on flap angle
• When “SWING button” is selected, the flaps swinging
range depends on the operation mode. (See the figure.)
In COOL or DRY mode
Three-Dimensional (3-D) Airflow
• Using three-dimensional airflow circulates cold air,
which tends to collected at the bottom of the room,
and hot air, which tends to collect near the ceiling,
throughout the room, preventing areas of cold and hot
developing.
■ ATTENTION
• Always use a remote controller to adjust the flaps
angle. If you attempt to move it forcibly with hand
when it is swinging, the mechanism may be broken.
• Be careful when adjusting the louvers. Inside the air
outlet, fan is rotating at a high speed and may cause
bodily injury if fan comes in contact with fingers.
