Instructions to Air Conditioner Card(冷氣卡使用須知)

1.      The air conditioner is working now.  Any students who have not received the dorm air conditioner remote control may claim it from the Dorm Staff.  The market price of the air conditioner remote control is NT$500.  In the case of loss or damage, please compensate it at the same price.  Please purchase the battery of the remote control, which is a consumable, on your own.

3.     Please use the air conditioner fairly according to the following steps:

(1)   Please insert the air conditioner card into the position at 2/3 of the electrical meter.  After the meter senses the card, the monitor will display “CHECKING”;

(2)   When the monitor displays two lines of numbers, the first line shows the amount and the second line shows the impulse/kwh.  If the impulse/kwh is at least 1600 impulse/kwh above, it means “Normal”;

(3)   Turn on the air conditioner remote control, and then the air conditioner starts operating with charge.

(2)      Power-consuming when standby;
