MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE 13 Do not overcool the room. This is not good for the health and wastes electricity. Keep blinds or curtains closed. Do not let direct sunshine enter the room when the air conditioner is in cooling operation. Make sure that the doors and windows are shut tight. Avoid opening doors and windows as much as possible to keep the air conditioned air in the room. Ventilate the room occasionally. Since windows are kept closed, it is a good idea to open them and ventilate the room from time to time. Filter The units shipped without a filter and is the responsibility of the installer to secure a filter in the return air ductwork. Filter must always be used and must be kept clean. When filters become dirt laden, insufficient air will be delivered by the blower, decreasing your units efficiency and increasing operating costs and wear-and-tear on the units and controls. Filters should be checked monthly especially since the unit may be used for both heating and cooling When the air conditioner is not going.... When it is not going to be used for a long time. - Operate the air conditioner on Air circulation mode for 2 to 3 hours. This will dry out the internal parts. - Turn off the circuit breaker. ! CAUTION Turn off the circuit breaker when the air conditioner is not going to be used for a long time. Dirt may collect and may cause a fire. When the air conditioner is to be used again. - Check that the air inlet and outlet of the indoor/outdoor unit are not blocked.
