Customer Question

Hi Phil, we have just moved into a house with a pc-2h2 ducted system that doesn't seem to be cool enough. I have found an installation manual but is there an instruction manual somewhere that is easy to understand? We are not sure what the settings should be other than high fan, cool and 20* (still not cool enough). Also, could you please tell us what the day/night switch does?

That is *only the thermostat.... the thermostat controls the much larger refrigerator sized system with a fan and compressors in it. It is something like the steering wheel in a car. If the car doesn't run it is not a steering wheel issue, but an issue with the motor.

The determination of the unit that this thermostat controls being the correct size or not, and adequate ducting or not, or if it has enough refrigerant in it or not. etc etc..

If you can send me pictures of *that unit, both the big part inside the home, about the size of a dishwasher, and the unit that sits outside the house, about the same size, I can be a lot more specific.

Use the paper clip icon at the right end of your tool bar above, or the 'attach files' link to the left of your 'send' button to attach the pictures.

We can go from there.
