An Easy Guide on How to Use Air Conditioner Timers

Blog

When it comes to operating the ac remote most of us understand operating modes such as cool, heat, swing modes, fan speeds, and so on.

One other extremely important mode on an air conditioner remote is the timer. Air con timers are what makes cold mornings more bearable, and hot afternoons a breeze.

Aircon timers ensure you are warm and cosy in the morning and nice and cool at home after work. There’s just one problem: how on earth do you use an air conditioner timer? 

In this post, we’ll show you how to set times using an ac remote control for Mitsubishi Electric AC systems including split system reverse cycle air conditioners and wall mounted split systems (Avanti series, Avanti PLUS series and Bronte series).

How to set up your air conditioning SLEEP TIMER

What is the difference between sleep and timer in ac?

Since our bodies can handle less cooling when we’re sleeping, sleep mode is perfect for setting a timer to set your ac unit to turn off on those hot summer nights for a more comfortable sleep.

The difference between sleep and timer is that sleep mode regulates cold temperatures in increments by automatically adjusting the temperature to 0.5 to 1 degree per hour.

Wireless ac remote

  1. Press the SLEEP button on the bottom of the remote control.
  2. Continue to press the SLEEP button until it shows the correct amount of time you’d like the unit to run before turning off.

For example: if you would like the air conditioner to turn off after 2 hours, press the button until ‘2H’ is displayed.

What about universal remote controls?

Universal remotes work with just about every ac system, however not all functions might be compatible with your air conditioning system. Some air conditioning units may not have the capability to run every mode available on a universal remote.

To ensure you get the best out of your air conditioning system, we always recommend using the standard ac remote provided by the original manufacturer.
