OPERATING YOUR UNIT
BEFORE SERVICING OR PERFORMING MAINTENANCE ON YOUR UNIT:
The operation of your unit is controlled by the Infinityr UI. You
simply program the UI and it maintains the indoor temperature at the
level you select. See UI manual for detailed instructions.
1. TURN OFF GAS SUPPLY TO YOUR UNIT.
2. TURN OFF ELECTRICAL POWER TO YOUR UNIT.
To better protect your investment and to eliminate unnecessary service calls, familiarize yourself with the following facts:
!
Step 1—Cooling Mode
CAUTION
CUT HAZARD
Failure to follow this caution may result in personal injury.
With the SYSTEM control set to COOL, your unit will run in cooling mode until the indoor temperature is lowered to the level you
have selected. On extremely hot days, your unit will run for longer
periods at a time and have shorter “off” periods than on moderate
days.
When removing access panels or performing maintenance
functions inside your unit, be aware of sharp sheet metal parts
and screws. Although special care is taken to reduce sharp
edges to a minimum, be extremely careful when handling
parts or reaching into the unit.
Step 2—Hybrid Heating Mode
Air Filters
The air filter(s) should be checked every 3 or 4 weeks and changed
or cleaned whenever it becomes dirty. Dirty filters produce excessive stress on the blower motor and can cause the motor to overheat
and shut down.
This unit must have air filters in place before it can be operated.
These filters can be located in one of at least two places. In many applications, the installer will provide return air filter grilles mounted
on the wall or ceiling of the conditioned structure. In the instance of
filter grilles, the filters can simply be removed from the grille and replaced.
The other typical application is an accessory filter rack installed inside the unit itself. The following information is given to assist in
changing filters used in these internal filter racks.
Table 1 indicates the correct filter size for your unit. Refer to Fig. 2
to access filters installed in the accessory filter rack.
Table 1—Air Filters Located Inside Unit
(For Replacement Purposes)
Your HYBRID HEAT system combines the strengths of two heating sources; an electric heat pump and a gas furnace. A HYBRID
HEAT system provides more control over your monthly energy
bills by allowing you to choose the most economical method of
heating. As conditions change, the system automatically switches
between the two sources to maintain greater efficiency than with a
single--source heating system.
With the UI control set to HEAT, your unit will normally operate the
electric heat pump until the room temperature is raised to the level
you have selected. If the demand for heat cannot be met by the electric heat pump, your UI control will automatically switch to gas heat
until the call for heat is satisfied.
On colder days, your system may automatically switch to gas heat
as the primary heating source to maximize the overall system efficiency and maintain your comfort level.
When your heat pump needs additional heat to keep you comfortable, your thermostat will turn on the supplemental gas heat.

To replace or inspect filters in accessory filter rack (See Fig. 2):
1. Remove the filter access panel using a 5/16--in. nut driver.
2. Remove the filter(s) by pulling it out of the unit. If the filter(s)
is dirty, clean or replace with a new one.
When installing the new filter(s), note the direction of the airflow arrows on the filter frame.
If you have difficulty locating your air filter(s) or have questions
concerning proper filter maintenance, contact your dealer for instructions. When replacing filters, always use the same size and type
of filter that was supplied originally by the installer.
This section discusses maintenance that should be performed on
your system. Most maintenance should be performed by your dealer. You, as the owner, may wish to handle some minor maintenance
for your new unit.
Routine Maintenance
All routine maintenance should be handled by skilled, experienced
personnel. Your dealer can help you establish a standard procedure.
To assure proper functioning of the unit, flow of condenser air must
not be obstructed from reaching the unit. Clearance from the top of
the unit is 48 in. (1219 mm). Clearance of at least 36 in. (914 mm)
is required on sides except the power entry side (42 in.[1067 mm]
clearance) and the duct side (12 in. [305 mm] minimum clearance).
