When installing the air conditioner semi-permanently, it is recommended to leave a door slightly open (at least 10mm) to guarantee correct ventilation. • Protect the room from direct exposure to the sun by partially closing curtains and/or blinds. This will assist in the appliance running economically. • Never rest objects of any kind on the air conditioner. • Do not obstruct the air intake and outlet. Leave the grilles free of obstruction. • Make sure there are no heat sources in the room. • Never use the appliance in rooms with high humidity (for example, laundry or bathroom). • Never use the appliance outdoors. This appliance is for indoor use only. • Make sure the air conditioner is standing on a level surface. WATER DRAINAGE METHOD This air conditioner is equipped with mist technology, which re-uses the drained water. This reduces the need to empty the internal tank.
