Electrical Specifications
1. All wiring must comply with local and national
electrical codes and must be installed by a
qualified electrician. If you have any questions
regarding the following instructions, contact a
qualified electrician.
2. Check available power supply and resolve any
wiring problems BEFORE installing and
operating this unit.
3. This 115V air conditioner uses 10.1 or less
(depending on model) nameplate amps and may
be used in any properly wired, general purpose
household receptacle. See Table 1 for
specifications for individual branch circuit.
4. For your safety and protection, this unit is
grounded through the power cord plug when
plugged into a matching wall outlet. If
you are not sure whether your wall outlet is
properly grounded, please consult a
qualified electrician.
5. The wall outlet (3-pin) must match the plug (3pin) on the service cord supplied with the unit.
DO NOT use plug adapters. See Table 2 for
receptacle and fuse information. DO NOT USE
UNIT. If it is necessary to use an extension cord
to connect your air conditioner, use an approved
"air conditioner" extension cord only. (available at
most local hardware stores)
6. The rating plate on the unit contains electrical

Energy-Saving Tips
Your Room Air Conditioner is designed to be
highly efficient in energy savings.
Follow these recommendations for greater efficiency.
4. Start your air conditioner before outdoor air
becomes hot and uncomfortable. This avoids an
initial period of discomfort while unit is cooling
off the room.
1. Select thermostat setting that suits your
comfort needs and leave thermostat at that
chosen setting.
2. The filter is very efficient in removing airborne
particles. Keep air filter clean. Normally, filter
should be cleaned every 2 weeks. More
frequent cleaning may be necessary depending
on indoor air quality.
5. When outdoor temperatures are cool enough,
use HIGH or LOW FAN only. This circulates
indoor air, providing some cooling comfort, and
utilizes less electricity than when operating on a
cooling setting.
3. Use drapes, curtains, or shades to keep
direct sunlight from heating room, but DO NOT
obstruct the air conditioner. Allow air to circulate
around the unit without obstruction.
