Windchaser PACR10 Operating Instructions

Windchaser manufactures fans, heaters, dehumidifiers, air cleaners and similar comfort-control items for home use. The PACR10 is one of the company's portable air conditioners. The unit is also known as the PACR10000, referring to its 10,000 BTU per hour cooling capacity. Before you use your PACR10, you must set up the unit so it vents to the outdoors.
