Window Kit and Exhaust Hose Installation Instructions
Preparations for Installing the Window Kit
You must vent your portable air conditioner when running it in cooling mode. Your unit includes a
window exhaust kit that can be used to vent the unit out of a window.
Before you begin, make sure that you have all the parts necessary for installation and that a
location is picked.
Window Kit Parts list:

If you have multiple windows, choose one that is near an electrical outlet that will be able to provide
sufficient power to your unit. See the power requirements listed on the product label printed on the
side, or on the back of your portable air conditioner.
Note: You may need to contact your electrician if your room’s circuit is not able to power your
unit.
Your window kit can be installed in a horizontal or vertical sliding window as shown in the following
images and instructions. Follow the instructions for your desired window kit installation.
3
Installation Preparation
Before you begin, make sure that you have all the parts necessary for installation and that you
have selected a suitable location.
Location
When choosing a location, please keep in mind:
 The air conditioner should be placed on a firm, level location in order to minimize noise and
vibration. Your appliance has casters to aid in placement. Use caution when rolling on
carpet and do not attempt to roll the unit over any objects as this may result in the unit
tipping over.
 Never place any obstacles around the air inlet or outlet of the unit.
 Allow at least 12” of space from the wall for efficient performance.

Window Slider Kit Preparation



Your window slider kit has been designed to fit most standard vertical and horizontal window
applications.
If the window opening is less than the minimum length of the window slider kit, you may trim
the slider panel B. (Trim side farthest from exhaust port.)
Slide Panel A inside panel B and adjust to correct width. To secure the panels together, press
the Window Slider Kit ‘Bolt’ into the appropriate slot on the edge of Panel A.
4
Installation in a Double Hung Sash Window
Step 1: Cut the foam seal to the proper length and attach it to the window sill, and window frame
as shown in the image to the left. Your window kit includes four (4) adhesive backed foam strips for
this step, two that are short and two that are longer.
Note: If desired, you may choose to attach the adhesive foam seal to the window slider kit instead
of the window sill and frame.
Step 2: Attach the window slider kit to the window sill. Adjust the length of the window slider kit
according to the width of the window. Use the winder slider “bolt” to secure the slider to the correct
width. Open the window sash and place the window slider kit on the window sill then close the
window sash securely against window slider kit.
Note: If needed, you may trim the adjustable window kit if the width of the window is less than
26 1/2.”
Step 3: Cut the foam seal to an appropriate length and seal the open gap between the top window
sash and outer window sash.
5
Step 4: If desired, secure the security bracket to the window frame. When installed properly, the
bracket will prevent the window sash from being opened.
Installation in a Sliding Sash Window
Step 1: Cut the foam seal to the proper length and attach it to the window sill, and window frame
as shown in the image to the left. Your window kit includes four (4) adhesive backed foam strips for
this step, two that are short and two that are longer.
Note: If desired, you may choose to attach the adhesive foam seal to the window slider kit instead
of the window sill and frame.
Step 2: Attach the window slider kit to the window sill. Adjust the length of the window slider kit
according to the width of the window. Use the winder slider “bolt” to secure the slider to the
correct width. Open the window sash and place the window slider kit on the window sill then
close the window sash securely against window slider kit.
Note: If needed, you may trim the adjustable window kit if the width of the window is less than
26 1/2.”
6
Step 3: Cut the foam seal to an appropriate length and seal the open gap between the top
window sash and outer window sash.
Step 4: If desired, secure the security bracket to the window frame. When installed properly, the
bracket will prevent the window sash from being opened.
Connecting the Exhaust Hose
Step 1: Connect Adapters to Exhaust Hose
To connect the Window Exhaust Adapter (a) to the Exhaust Hose (b), simply extend the open
end of the flexible exhaust hose so that you can thread the adapter into place. Rotate the
adapter until it is tightened securely. Repeat this process for Hose Adapter (c) and tighten
securely.
7
Step 2: Place the Unit in the Installation Location
Roll the unit towards the location where the window kit has been installed. Please ensure that the
unit is at least 12 inches from the wall to ensure proper ventilation.
Step 3: Connect the Exhaust Hose to the unit
Align the hooks on the Hose Adapter (c) to the Exhaust Air Outlet on the back of the unit. Slide the
hose downward and into place.
Step 4: Connect the Exhaust Hose to the Window Kit
Push the Window Exhaust Adapter which has been attached to the Exhaust Hose through the
window kit hole and rotate until it is secure.
After you have installed the exhaust hose and window kit, you can plug in your portable air
conditioner and power it on.
8
Notes About the Exhaust Hose
Your portable air conditioner is designed to exhaust condensed water that is collected from the air.
This water, in either gaseous or droplet form, will be expelled out of the exhaust port of the unit.
Please take this into account when deciding how to vent it.
1. The exhaust hose supplied with the portable air conditioner can be extended up to
approximately 48 inches; however, for maximum efficiency, use the shortest length
possible.
2. Try to prevent any kinks or bends in the exhaust hose. Kinks or bends may trap exhaust
air which can radiate heat into the room or potentially cause the portable air conditioner to
overheat and shut itself off.
3. The exhaust hose supplied with the portable air conditioner has been specifically designed for
this air conditioner. Do not lengthen the hose by adding additional hoses or attachments. Do
not replace it with any other hose.
Do not lengthen the
exhaust hose by adding
additional hoses or
attachments.
Warning: Longer hoses are not recommended.
The exhaust hose must be installed or removed in accordance with the usage modes:
A: You must install the exhaust hose if the unit is in Cooling Mode for proper functionality.
B: In Dehumidify Mode and Fan Mode, the unit can operate with or without the exhaust hose
attached. If you choose to operate the unit without the exhaust hose in these modes the air
conditioner will be more portable. However, because the exhaust hose removes hot air and
moisture from the room, more cooling will occur in Dehumidify Mode if the exhaust hose is
attached.
Note: The exhaust hose may be adjusted according to your installation requirements. However, it
is recommended to keep the exhaust hose length at its shortest allowable length for the best
airflow efficiency.
9
Draining the Unit
When the portable air conditioner is in cooling mode, or dehumidify mode, it will remove moisture
from the air. The condensed water from the air will be collected in an internal reservoir and will be
evaporated and exhausted out of the exhaust hose. However, in very humid conditions, the internal
reservoir may fill completely. This causes the air conditioner to turn off and display the “P1” code to
avoid overflowing the internal reservoir. The fan will continue to operate.
Continuous Drain
During dehumidifying mode, remove the upper drain plug from the back of the unit. Attach the drain
hose to the continuous drain outlet and route the end of the drain hose to a suitable drainage port.
Manual Drain
During cooling mode, once the water level of the bottom tray reaches capacity the unit will beep
several times and the digital display on the control panel will read “P1” to indicate the water must be
manually drained. Carefully move the unit to a drain location and remove the bottom drain plug and
connect the drain hose to the drain outlet. The portable air conditioner will now drain through the
drain hose. Please note that this unit has no drain pump; all water will drain with gravity only, i.e.,
only “downhill.”
Once the unit is fully drained reinstall the bottom drain plug and restart the machine until the “P1”
code disappears. If the error repeats call for service.

Issue
Possible Cause
Solution
My air conditioner is not cooling
at all.
The unit is not operating in
cooling mode.
Set the unit to operate in
cooling mode, and lower the
set temperature.
The compressor is not on.
The compressor may take up
to 3 minutes to turn on, or
longer if it is too warm.
Lower the room temperature
to be below 90°F.
Clean the filters.
The ambient temperature is
too high.
The filter may be dusty or
blocked.
The exhaust port is blocked.
My air conditioner blows cold
air, but does not lower the room
temperature.
The unit is not vented.
The area of the room is too
large.
There are open windows and
doors.
There are too many heat
sources.
The room / garage may be
inadequately insulated.
The ambient temperature is
too high.
Direct sunlight is heating the
room.
The filter may be dusty or
blocked.
The condenser coils are dirty.
The air intake or exhaust ports
are obstructed.
Remove any obstructions in
the exhaust hose and port.
The unit must be vented.
(See Installation pg. 4)
Minimize the size of the area
to be cooled, i.e. adding a
drop ceiling. Use more than
one unit to cool the area, or
use a larger unit.
Close any open doors and
windows.
Remove or shut off additional
heat sources such as radio
equipment, servers, etc.
Properly insulate the room for
cooling, i.e. using fiberglass.
The unit may not work if the
room temperature is above
90°F.
Close curtains or pull down
blinds, and minimize the
direct sunlight into the room.
Clean the filter and replace it
if needed.
Carefully vacuum the coils
clean.
Remove anything blocking
the ports.
Note: If the ambient temperature is above 90°F the unit may not blow cold air.
Tip: Run the unit before it is needed. For example, run the unit in the morning before the area
gets hot, and continue to run the unit all day long in order to maintain a low temperature.

New Portable Air Conditioner BTU’s
You may notice that the cooling capacities (in British Thermal Units or BTU’s) labeled on
portable air conditioners (PAC’s) are now lower than on models produced prior to October 1,
2017. This is because the labeling on new productions of PAC’s must follow a new federal test
standard that was established by the Department of Energy: 10 CFR 430, subpart B, appendix
CC.
The SACC rating shown on your new PAC is a result of this new standard. Models manufactured
before 2017 were tested under a different standard (ASHRAE) that produced a higher cooling
capacity output. While the SACC BTU’s are lower than the previous ASHRAE BTU’s, the
construction and cooling capacity of this model(s) remains unchanged. Both the SACC and
ASHRAE ratings are included for consumer comparison.
What is SACC?
SACC, or the Seasonally Adjusted Cooling Capacity, is a rating in BTU/hour that represents the
weighted average performance of a PAC in a number of test conditions, some of which may be
more extreme than the average use case, which is then adjusted to account for the effect of
infiltration air and duct heat transfer. The factors included in the SACC calculation are why the
ratings appear lower, even though the model(s) has not changed.
