If your VRF ducted unit is located indoors, easily increase the External Static Pressure (ESP) in the app. Tap again to apply.
Adjust the room temperature sensing
When needed, select the thermistor sensor as reference for room temperature and improve accuracy with temperature calibration.
Prevent excessive setpoints
Add some min/max limits to the set temperature, so occupants won’t misuse the air conditioning.
