Many people choose to use portable air conditioning units because they are easier to install than traditional window units. However, many window styles and layouts do not permit the installation of window units. Therefore, if you have decided to install your new portable air conditioner, you should pay attention to the installation instructions. Follow these instructions to get the most out of your unit. If you don’t understand any of them, contact a professional installer. In some cases, you may even be required to rent a tool to complete the work.
You must remember to drain the water from the portable AC every time you finish using it. If you don’t drain the water, the unit may not work properly. This is why you should keep a hose connected to the portable AC and a drainage receptacle nearby. However, not all portable ACs come with this accessory, so you may need to purchase one separately. To avoid a potential injury, it is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for proper installation.
Place the portable AC near a window or an electrical outlet. Make sure that the hose doesn’t block the window or cause tripping hazards. If necessary, use duct tape to secure the hose. Once you have placed the portable AC in the proper location, connect the window exhaust connector. Once the vent hose is connected, turn on the power and check that the cooling function is functioning. You can also press the “TEST” button on the portable air conditioner to see whether it works properly. If it doesn’t, press the “RESET” button to reconnect the unit to the power source.
