Method of Installation
Before installation, be sure to check the installation area for the air
conditioner, and installation method of the drain hose.
Checkpoints prior to installation
1 Check the cabinet and front grille of the unit for any harmful defects
such as scratches.
2 Be sure to check the power supply.
- Refer to the specifications on the label attached to the unit.
Installation Conditions
1 As the unit is heavy, the wall or window of the installation area should
have sufficient strength and durability for operation of the air conditioner,
and for prevention of any vibration or noise.
If it is weak, reinforcement work should be performed separately.
2 It is advisable to install the air conditioner in the north or west side to
prevent the effect of direct sunlight.
When installing it in the south or east side due to unavoidable
circumstances, it is advisable to install the sunshade to prevent the
direct sunlight.
In this case, take care not to cause any hindrance to the flow of outside air.
3 When installing the air conditioner, be sure to obtain sufficient space on
the rear side of the unit for smooth flow of air.
When operating the air conditioner in closed areas such as inner building
with cooling operation, and result in trouble with the unit.
See the illustration below.

Method of Installation(Cont.)
Installation of the Drain Tube
Fix the drain tube as shown in the figure.
There are two ways to handle the condensing water.Please
make your choice according to your needs.
Block the drainage hole on one side of the unit base with
a rubber stopper so as to let the condensing water flow out
from the rear drainage hole of the unit. (as shown in Figure 2-1).
a) When this method is adopted, the condensing water in
the base plate cannot be drained completely. The remaining
water may improve the heat dispersing effect of the unit,
but with louder noise. (Figure 2-2).
b) Installation of drainage tube: Install the sealing ring to
the drainage tube and align the tube with the rear drainage
for 90 degrees and then clamp it firmly (Figure 2-2).
The condensing water flows out from the drainage hole
at the base plate of the unit
a) When this method is adopted, the condensing water in
the base plate can be drained completely, which helps to
prevent from rusting. There will be no noise of water
splashing. But the air conditioner has to be raised to a
certain height in installing so that the water containing plate
can be placed between the base of the unit and the
supporting platform.
b) Installation of the water containing plate: Use a rubber
stopper to block the drainage hole at the rear of the unit
and place in the water containing plate (Figure 2-3).
If the air conditioner has accessory seal ,please install the seal
as shown in the figure
