It is required that the fan be turned off when no demand for cooling or heating is needed.
Enter the configuration mode of the room controller. Refer to page 19 of the SE7300 Series Installation Guide for the procedure to enter the configuration mode.
In configuration mode, there is a parameter 'AutoFan'. The default mode for this parameter is 'AS'. In order for the fan to stop when there is no demand, the mode should be set to 'AS AD'.
- AS (Default) = Auto Speed during occupied periods. Fan is always on during occupied periods. Low, medium and high speeds operate on temperature offset from set point.
AS AD = Auto Speed / Auto Demand during occupied periods.- Medium and high speeds operate on temperature offset from set point. Low speed operates on demand and will shut down when no demand is present.
On the room controller, select the fan mode parameter from the home screen. The fan mode must be set to Smart in order for the fan output to function as expected. In Smart mode the fan will turn off when there is no demand for cooling or heating.
