Installation

AIRCOSAVER_InstallationAIRCOSAVER installation is simple and takes approximately 15-30 minutes (depending on local situations). A detailed step-by-step installation manual is provided with each AIRCOSAVER.

The AIRCOSAVER is designed to be installed into existing systems as an after market fit (retrofit). The AIRCOSAVER is NOT a DIY (do-it-yourself) solution. It should be installed by a qualified A/C technician or electrician.

For which systems is the AIRCOSAVER suitable?

An AIRCOSAVER is suitable for most residential and light commercial DX (direct expansion) AC systems, e.g. window units, wall-mounted units, single splits and small packaged units.

AIRCOSAVER energy saver introWhere should you NOT install an AIRCOSAVER? The standard AIRCOSAVER is NOT suitable for

  • chilled water systems,
  • evaporative cooling systems,
  • inverter type split systems and
  • multi split systems.
  • Also, some Mitsubishi models (e.g. the Mr. Slim range) are NOT suitable for installation due to extensive built-in monitoring functions which can cause problems under some operating conditions.

Installation step-by-step

For clarity’s sake the images below illustrate the installation of an AIRCOSAVER into a small window unit. However, the installation steps are basically the same for many other types of aircon units. The AIRCOSAVER is suited for a wide range of air conditioning types such as single-split systems, packaged units or small central aircon units. In our „Support“ section your will find extended installation and demo guidelines.
