With push-buttons controls and a bright, multi-color display panel, this air conditioner couldn't be easier to operate. Control functions include: mode selction, temperature control, fan speed control, swinging louvers, sleep mode, and auto mode that cool and dehumidifies as needed.
How Often Will I Need to Empty Water From the AC?
During air conditioning and dehumidying modes, the Soleus KY3-100 will extract moisture from the air - as much as 55 pints per day! Most of this moisture will be used to cool internal components, and then exhausted outside through the vent hose. In most conditions, you'll never have to empty water from the unit.
How Much Does this Unit Dehumidify?
Sometimes, in high humidity conditions, water extracted from the air cannot be evaporated quickly enough by the system, and condensate will collect in the 1.5 liter emergency holding tank. When this tank fills, the unit will automatically shut down to prevent overflow and an alarm will sound. To empty, simply pull the drain plug at the back of the unit and allow it to empty into the included drain pan. Or, for continuous operation in high humidity, install the included drainage hose. There's never any messy bucket to manage.
