n Installation
Prior to operation
Prior to Operation
Preparing for operation
1. Contact an installation specialist for installation.
2. Use a dedicated circuit.
1. Being exposed to direct airflow for an extended period of time could be hazardous to your health.
Do not expose occupants, pets, or plants to direct airflow for extended periods of time.
2. Due to the possibility of oxygen deficiency, ventilate the room when used together with stoves or
other heating devices.
3. Do not use this air conditioner for non-specified special purposes (e.g. preserving precision devices, food, pets, plants, and art objects). Such usage could damage the items.
Cleaning and maintenance
1. Do not touch the metal parts of the unit when removing the filter. Injuries can occur when handling
sharp metal edges.
2. Do not use water to clean inside the air conditioner. Exposure to water can destroy the insulation,
leading to possible electric shock.
3. When cleaning the unit, first make sure that the power and breaker are turned off. The fan rotates
at a very high speed during operation. There is a possibility of injury if the unitʼs power is accidentally triggered on while cleaning inner parts of the unit.
For repair and maintenance, contact your authorized service dealer.

Helpful information
The air filters and your electiric bill.
If the air filters become clogged with dust, the
cooling capacity will drop, and 6% of the electricity
used to operate the air conditioner will be wasted.
Operation Tips
Do not overcool the room.
Keep blinds or curtains
Keep the room temperature
This is not good for the health
and wastes electricity.
Do not let direct sunshine
enter the room when the air
conditioner is in operation.
Adjust the vertical and horizontal airflow direction to ensure a uniform temperature in
the room.
Make sure that the doors
and windows are shut tight.
Clean the air filter regularly.
Ventilate the room occasionally.
Avoid opening doors and windows as much as possible to
keep the cool air in the room.
Blockages in the air filter reduce the airflow and lower
cooling and dehumidifying effects. Clean at least once
every two weeks.
Since windows are kept
closed, it is a good idea to
open them and ventilate the
room now and then.
