The noise level is the amplitude level of the undesired background noise. The low noise level indicates that the device is quiet.
Heating capacity is measured in British Thermal Units (BTU). It is a measure of a heating system's ability to add thermal energy to an area, under standard conditions. The higher the BTU, the more powerful the AC, which means it will be able to heat a larger space.
The sleep mode feature allows you to set a time for the air conditioner to automatically adjust to pleasant sleeping conditions. The device slowly increases temperature during the night to match the metabolism of the user.
The device has a special filter which combats odours, allergens, bacteria and viruses.
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
Reverse cycle air conditioning extracts heat from the outside air, even on mid-winter nights, and transfers it inside. Inverter technology provides not only high-speed cooling but also heating with extra energy savings compared to non-inverter models.
Function that allows you to control when the device will shut off to help reduce costs.
With this function, there’s no unpleasant odour when the device starts up.
With a manual thermostat you have a range of temperature settings (usally low, middle and high) to choose from. These are usually cheap and easy to use, though they offer less precision.
