and about 50% relative humidity.
An air conditioner removes moisture and heat from the room where it is located. One advantage
of portable air conditioning units over fitted models is that they can be moved from one room to
another in the home or even transferred between different buildings.
The hot air in your room is passed through a coil
cooled by refrigerant gas, losing excess
heat and moisture before being
discharged again into the room.
In single unit models (Pinguino), a
small part of this air is used to
cool the refrigerant gas before, hot and moist air is being
discharged outside.
In suitcase models, the circuit is cooled using the air
outside.
ECO by Pinguino is the
latest generation of ecological air conditioners. Pinguino does not contain
gases dangerous to the
earth's
ozone
(CFC/HCFC).

In addition,
thanks to the extreme efficiency of the appliance, not only
does it save you money on your
electric bills, but it saves the environment by not negatively contributing to

HOW TO USE THE AIRCONDITIONER WITH WATER
These air conditioners can use both air and water to cool the condenser (the hot part) of the air
conditioner.
To utilise the full potential of your air conditioner, the tank 8 needs to be filled with water. The water
is used. To increase the cooling power and reduce the noise level and energy consumption of the air
conditioner. The water that is used in then expelled from the machine as water vapour through the
exhaust hose 16 (it does not go into room).
Always use clean top water (which doesn’t contain salts). As a rule the water will usually last about 8
hours however this depends on the conditions within the room, such as temperature, humidity, insulation and aspect and number of people. In turbo mode the water will also be used more quickly.
You may also use the airconditioner on air cooling only (without filling the water tank . If you only require the lower cooling power.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION (U.K. ONLY)
A) If your appliance comes fitted with a plug, it will incorporate a 13 Amp fuse. If it does not fit your socket, the plug should
be cut off from the mains lead, and on appropriate plug fitted, as below. warning: Very carefully dispose of the cut off
plug after removing the fuse: do not insert in a 13 Amp socket elsewhere in the house as this could cause a shock hazard.
With alternative plugs not incorporating a fuse, the circuit must be protected by a 15 Amp fuse. If the plug is a mouldedon type, the fuse cover must be re-fitted when changing the fuse using a 13 Amp Asta approved fuse to BS 1362. In the
event of losing the fuse cover, the plug must NOT be used until a replacement fuse cover can be obtained from your nearest electrical dealer. The colour of the correct replacement fuse cover is that as marked on the base of the plug.
B) If your appliance is not fitted with a plug, please follow the instructins provided below:
WARNING - THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED
