ZoneAire is portable, so is there really any “installation”?
While ZoneAire doesn’t require traditional installation, there are some important things you need to know before you operate the unit:
- To operate ZoneAire in air conditioning/cooling mode, it must be vented to the outside through a window or other opening. ZoneAire ships with a window installation kit that fits horizontal and vertical windows up to 46" wide. This is the piece through which you’ll vent the unit’s hoses to the outside.
- You do not need to vent ZoneAire to the outside to operate it in dehumidification or fan mode.
Do I need a special outlet to run ZoneAire?
No, the unit plugs into a regular 115V outlet.
Is ZoneAire easy to maneuver?
The unit has ergonomic handles and casters built in. You don’t have to lift it; simply roll and guide the unit from room to room.
Is there a continuous-drainage option?
Yes, you can attach a ½" hose to the rear of the unit and run it through a drain for continuous drainage.
