- Enter your model number to make sure this fits.
- Ion Generator: Air ionizer improves indoor air quality (IAQ) by generating hydrogen oxygen ions that eliminate biological contaminants that threat your health, such as viruses, bacteria and mold.
- Carbon Filter: is made of active carbon and electrostatic fiber that eliminates certain kinds of odors such as cigarette smoke, pet odors, other unpleasant odors and deactivates harmful chemical gases. Electrostatic fiber filter traps small particles such as dust and pet fur from the air stream to prevent allergic reactions.
- Self-Cleaning: The unit operates at low fan speed and the condensate water washes away the dust from the evaporator golden, hydrophilic fins, then air dries the evaporator. The whole process cleans the indoor unit coil and prevents the breeding of bacteria and mildew growth.
- Economy / Sleep Operation: In this function the temperature increases (cooling) or decreases (heating) automatically by 2º F per hour for two hours then stays steady for the next 5 hours, and after that it will switch off. This feature can maintain the most comfortable temperature and save more energy.
- Follow Me: When activated the remote control built-in temperature sensor can sense its surrounding temperature and transmit the signal back to the indoor unit at 3 minute intervals and can adjust the airflow volume and temperature accordingly to provide maximum comfort and save energy at the same time.

Inverter Technology A DC Inverter Air Conditioner cools and heats even when the outside temperature falls to 5º F (-15º C). Klimaire DC Inverter Air Conditioners use the ultimate cooling and heating technology of the HVAC field. Different frequencies supplied to the compressor will result in different running speeds. WHAT IS A DC INVERTER? In a DC Inverter Air Conditioner the Alternating Current (AC) is converted to Direct Current (DC) then the Direct Current is converted back to Alternating Current at any required voltage and frequency. As known, the current supplied through the wall outlet has a fixed frequency which is 60 Hertz. Different frequencies supplied to the compressor will result in it running at different speeds. Klimaire Inverter control systems use Pulse Amplitude Modulation (PAM) that is the most advanced and energy efficient method of inverting current. DC inverter air conditioners use special compressors, which speed can be changed by increasing or decreasing the frequency of the supplied power. Unlike conventional split Air Conditioners/Heat Pumps which cycle between on and off repeatedly to maintain the room temperature at a desired level, causing the compressor to draw a tremendous quantity of energy each time is starts up; the DC Inverter control system will monitor the room temperature and adjust the compressor speed automatically allowing for continuous environment comfort. · Ionizer - The air ionizer improves indoor air quality (IAQ) producing active hydrogen oxygen ions that eliminate bacteria, viruses, and other harmful agents in the conditioned air. Anions are always found in the forest or near waterfall; these can stimulate blood circulation and help to prevent some respiratory illnesses so improving the lung function. Coverage Area: Up to 1400 sq. ft.

However, once installed, this thing is no less than fantastic. It will cool our entire 1300 sq. ft. downstairs with 10 ft. ceilings from 95 degrees to 76 degrees and to 55% humidity in about 30-40 minutes. Even our second floor, after about an hour has its temperature and humidity reduced to livable levels though we did not expect that.
As far as heating goes, we will find that out this winter...and I will update this review then. It is supposed to be efficient down to 5 degrees.
Last night the temperature dipped to 14 degrees F. The unit warmed the entire downstairs....worked perfectly. According to the specs, this unit draws 38 volts DC (DC inverter technology) of electricity and uses 400 watts connected to a 220 volt circuit. We shall see when we get our energy bills. I will update again when the temperature drops into the single digits.
Regardless of the instruction manual, I just raised this Klimaire unit's rating to 5 stars. It exceeds the performance we were expecting.
Temperature in our area last night was officially 10 degrees F. At our home, it reached 6 degrees. The unit is producing heat at an adequate rate to still keep our kitchen and downstairs comfortable.
The unit itself isn’t bad. I was happy to see how it was built. While not known as top of the line, such as the universally-liked and more expensive Mitsubishi, it did seem like it would do the job. It came perfectly packed and mounted on a pallet. No problems here.
Installing the unit was actually fun. We poured a small concrete pad, ran new 220V lines, flared the line set, mounted the outside unit and hung the inside unit. We pumped down the unit with a Robinaire vacuum pump for two hours and verified no vacuum leaks for 50 minutes. Opened the compressor valves as instructed, added the recommended amount of additional R410A for the slightly longer line set and powered up the unit. It ran smooth and quiet. Exit air was in the low 40’s F. with even lower temperatures near the evaporator coils. It was a perfect installation done with care at every step, to NEC code and by a licensed and experienced AC person. All seemed well. We were happy.
Then our luck changed. About 6-8 weeks later the system had greatly reduced cooling. Pressures were low. We had a leak. This usually isn’t the end of the world. It could be a bad flare fitting or something else easily fixed. After two days with an electronic leak detector and other leak testing, a leak was found in an evaporator copper pipe on the wall hanging unit. We could detect it, maybe even fix it but its in a very hard place to access. I decided to call the seller of this unit, “Heat and Cool” in Doral Fl. (also known as “Universal Environmental Products”) and change out the entire inside unit.
I guess this is where I got tripped up. I was naive in thinking this vendor would stand behind their sale, have parts, return phone calls, etc. NONE of that happened. I wasn’t even trying to get it replaced under warranty.
I persisted. Eventually talking to almost everyone that had a phone in the company. No customer service reps answer the phone. NONE. No call was ever returned. It wasn’t just me. It was like this from the first call. This company has a “F” with the Better Business Bureau. The only way to get to talk to anyone is to call sales (they do answer) and have them get you to a direct internal extension. Even then, 99% of the time the rep is not there and you leave a message. NONE were ever returned. Their focus is 100% sales and 0% post sales support. If it breaks and repair is not feasible, you buy another complete unit and hope for the best.
I have fixed a lot of AC units, mostly in cars but have worked on home units from the 70’s on I am licensed but AC is not my day job, just for my family and friends. This is the first mini-Split I have worked on. I will get it repaired but most likely not with the help of this vendor.
We purchased the unit through Sears and paiid to have it installed. A total of $1500. It worked one season, that is it. The company would not honor its warrenty, after many calls and attempts to talk to someone. Sears would not honor the warrenty. Many, many , many calls and messages and no responses. Even the Better Business Bureau could not get the maker of the unit to respond.
So who do you go to. No one really cares. That is the sadest part. They sell a product that is garbage hardware and no one really cares. Where is the pride in their company?
So we bought a window unit to use while we fought with these people and finally decided to pay for a new split unit once again. Now another $2000. NEVER BUY KLIMAIRE PRODUCTS. Tell you friends too and we are also done with SEARS, it's a pityful situation. BTW, Sears just sells stuff that they do not make, so they won't take resonsibility for it. So tired of being on the losing end of things.
