I posted a quiery here recently about a Fedders window unit, that I had cleaned up a good bit, and installed. http://hvac-talk.com/vbb/showthread....473&p=13943811 You guys did answer my question, enough to where I could finally figure it out, and I thank you for that. The settings turned out to be (CC) TOP-OFF (to the left) 1st-low fan, 2nd-low cool, 3rd-med cool, 4th-high cool, 5th-high fan, Top-OFF. It is working very well, although I only use it when it seems totally necessary, and only then until it doesn't.
I have another question, if you guys don't mind. At what setting is it the most efficient? The lower settings as you'll know produce the lower temps(at the discharge), I've seen it down in the 50's, BUT, the higher settings(although not producing as low of temps) cast it farther.
Does the compressor turn at the same rate, use the same amount of juice, produce the same amount of "cool", on low fan, as it does on high fan??(it seems to sound the same on both settings?
If you are not familiar with my first post(above link), you'll see it has pics of the unit label, the compressor label, and fan label too. It is rated at 7500 btu and 9.5 amp, and i suppose that is an "on high" rate?
Any idea what the low cool, med cool settings will be drawing? and at which setting I can achieve the most "cool" per kwh?
I sincerely appreciate your expertise, and any helpful suggestions
