Note: CR-2500 and CR-7000 operate the same unless specified.

Start-up—Prime Unit First:

First please turn on the unit and set to lowest
possible Cooling or Automatic setting. Let unit
run for 10 minutes and shut off. Let unit sit idle
for 3-5 minutes and restart. Make sure on
restart to have the lowest temperature set and
let run for an additional 10 minutes. This will
distribute the A/C oil to all the necessary areas
for proper function and allow the compressor
to run at its optimum for long life and
maximum efficiency.


Once unit is primed, you no longer use AUTO
mode. Set unit to either COOL, HEAT or FAN
mode. Then set desired temperature.

Operating Functions of your Climate Right


Your climate unit is designed to condition the
climate of your air in three ways: Cooling
(A/C), Heating and Fan Only.The unit will
operate in only one mode at a time. These
modes should be set manually. There are two
(low/high) fan speeds.

If the OUTSIDE Temperature falls below the set
temperature in some instances the CPU will
turn off the fan.

When it’s required again the CPU will turn the
fan back on. This is normal operation to save
energy. While operating the cool mode it is
normal for the unit to produce “condensation”
or water must drain out the bottom. If this


Upon first use, it is necessary to go through initial set up. This is
a start up procedure to “prime” the unit for normal operation.
This is done for the A/C (Cooling Mode) only and is required
for first start and all first season starts with Cooling Mode.
Failure to do this voids warranty.

Turn unit on. Unit defaults to AUTO mode and senses the
ambient air temperature and internally programs whether the
coolingor heating mode should be the default. After initial
power up, DO NOT USE AUTO MODE. Set the unit manually to
either COOL (in hot weather) or HEAT (in cold weather) 
Then set desired temp.

Operation, cont...

climate unit will be usedindoors it is a must
that a separate drain pan (NOT INCLUDED) be
installed under the unit. Please take this into
consideration when mounting or installing the
unit. Your ClimateRight™ may produce large
amounts of condensation depending on
humidity levels.  (Note: Drain mouth location
differs on each  model).


You may set the timer to control how long
your Climate Right™ runs. The Time Display
shows the number of hours remaining until unit
shuts off. When the unit is operating, you can
set the OFF time by adjusting the number of
hours of operation (using “Up” and “Down”
button). When the unit is turned off, you can
START time within a range of 1 to 24 hours from
when you set it.


Your Climate Right™ climate control unit
should be a low maintenance product and
not require much attention if used in normal
environments. However, over time with normal
usage there are two (2) things that may need
to be addressed. 


If used in the inlet and outlet pipes 

they will get dirty over time. Please remove 
and clean as desired.


On the right side of the unit 

there is the condenser. If you notice the 
cooling ability of

the unit degrading or if the fins

of the condenser become dirty they will need to 
be cleaned. Compressed air should be used to 
gently blow the unit out.


Failure to property care for your Climate Right™
unit as mentioned above will result in the Warranty
to be voided.


Climate Right™ can be used in a variety of ways.
The possibilities are endless. We have many
customers who currently use the unit for climate
conditioning of dog houses, boat cabins, toll
booths, tents, tear drop trailers, personal cooling in
hot or cold environments, electronic equipment,
cabanas, small wine cellars, cigar storage rooms
and many more! Climate Right™ was designed
using the best components such as Toshiba® and
Hitachi® compressors and brass piping to ensure
whatever your use, it will condition your climate
efficiently, reliably and quietly!

ClimateRight™ FAQ—
Models #CR-2500 and #CR-7000

©Revised August 2011 – Tacom Limited

What is Climate Right™? 

Climate Right™ is a

portable, electrical, outdoor small enclosure air
conditioner, heater and humidity control system –
all in one. There are two (2) models, but both
operate on the same general principals.
ClimateRight™ is designed to be connected to
outdoor enclosures with a two-hose air
intake/outflow accessory kit (included). Simply set
the unit outside an outdoor small enclosed
structure, install the 2 hoses into the structure using
our simple Accessory Kit, turn on, set it to your
desired heat or cool mode and temperature, 
and enjoy!

What types of enclosures does Climate Right™
work with?

It depends on the CUBIC FOOTAGE

of your enclosure:


Any outdoor enclosure 5-350 cubic feet

like pet houses, small work  sheds, tear drop trailers,
toll booths, tents, or any small outdoor installations
or enclosures.


Any outdoor installations or enclosures

350-1,200 cubic feet such as sheds, garages, job
site trailers, outdoor recreation or work spaces, etc.
This unit is also ideal to spot cool or heat
economically and effectively.

What is the difference between CR-2500 and

The main difference is the btu power. CR-

2500 is rated for small enclosures 5-350 cubic feet.
CR-7000 is rated for enclosures 350-1,200 cubic feet.
Multiply the approximate L’ x W’ x H’ of your
enclosed space and then select the proper model
based on this. Be sure not to assume bigger is
better! Performance and satisfaction depends on
selecting the proper unit for the size of the space.

How Do I Install Climate Right™?

Using our

Accessory Kit. It is a 2-Hose System for air intake and
air outflow. (See “Figure 1 – Climate Right™
Cooling/Heating Process.”) We include an
Assembly Kit for pet houses, or many outdoor
enclosures. Note that the Assembly Kit is designed
to work on most wooden pet houses. The air
intake/outflow system depends on having an inlet
hole and outlet hole that fits the coupler/hose
system. Your application may not be a wood pet
house. In this cases, you will need to seek
professional installation advice and possible special

tools and fittings to optimize your application for
the unit. (We are working on a new accessory kits!)


Climate Right™ can be used in a

wide variety of applications, with varying degrees
of beginning ambient temperature, enclosure sizes,
insulation, humidity, etc. Therefore, the intent of the
unit is to improve the conditions generally. In all
cases, the climate will markedly improve. However,
we cannot guarantee or warrant your space will
heat or cool to the exact set temperature. Fan
speeds two temperatures (low/high)

Can I leave Climate Right™ OUTDOORS?


The electrical work is enclosed and safe from the
elements. The unit is specially designed to operate
outdoors in the elements.

Can I use Climate Right™ INDOORS?

Yes. You

just should make sure there is a venting system
for heat to escape using cooling mode. Ideally, use
the 2-Hose system (air intake and outflow to
properly “replenish” acclimatized air).

How Does Climate Right™ actually heat and

There are two ports located on the front of

the unit. On port #1 (lower), air is drawn into and
sent to the inside of the unit where it is either
heated or cooled. Then the air is forced by fan
back out port #2 (higher), into the structure to be
climate controlled. No heating elements or cooling
elements (evaporator) are exposed to the outside.
Both elements are contained within sealed cases
located on the inside of the unit. This unit is not set
up like a space heater and will not pose any sort of
fire hazard if tipped over. (See “Figure 1 – Climate
Right™ Cooling/Heating Process”).

What is the temperature range for heating and

Climate Right™ can be set to heat or

cool from 61-87 degrees Fahrenheit. Climate
Right™ can be set to heat mode, or cool mode.
Do not use AUTO mode as this mode is a default
setting during setup. Acclimatized temperatures
vary depending on ambient air temperature and
size of enclosure.

ClimateRight™ FAQ—, cont...
Models #CR-2500 and #CR-7000


Let Climate Right™ run for

about 48 hours continuously for peak performance.
Do not expect Climate Right™ to work in
minutes, or even a few hours. It may take this
amount of time to optimize your climate.

Can Climate Right™ be left on continuously?

Yes. You can use Climate Right™ continuously to
help maintain temperature and humidity, or “spot”
heat or cool while within an enclosure for shorter

What comes included with Climate Right™?


the current time, the unit comes with a kit that
contains two hoses, one hole saw, two couplers,
two clamps, one mesh filer for return hose, and
eight screws (optimal for dog and cat house cut
out and assembly). Instructions and Warranty are
also enclosed in the box. This kit can be used for
any other wooden structure like an outdoor shed.

Why is Climate Right™ better for small spaces?

The CR-2500 unit runs with a smaller compressor
than almost all bigger units on the market, and
thus is not “overkill” with too much cold or too
much hot. It optimizes the small climate space,
with the bonus of very little energy consumption.
The CR-7000 is a bit more capacity (btu) and blow
force. Carefully select the unit based on size of
enclosure (see What Types of Enclosures Work
with Climate Right™).

Who makes Climate Right™?

We manufacture in

a state of the art manufacturing facility in China
specializing in OEM electronic heating and cooling
products, supplying both small and very large
corporations. We use only first quality components
such as Toshiba and Hitachi compressors, and
brass piping.

How much energy does Climate Right™ use?

See specifications. This unit is considered a very
low energy consumption electronic device.

Is there a Warranty?

Yes. It is included in the

box, and posted on our web site.

How long does it take to ship? 

Orders are normally

shipped within two business days of receipt
via either Fed-Ex or UPS ground. Expedited shipping
will cost more, you must contact Tacom or
your authorized dealer.

Where can Climate Right™ be used?


possibilities are nearly endless: outdoor dog and
cat houses, tents, attics, small work spaces like job
site trailers, garden sheds, garage work areas,
tear drop trailers, boat cabins, temporary outdoor
small military installations, toll booths, parking
attendant houses, to name a few. Share with us
your ideas!

Besides heating and cooling, does Climate
Right™ improve air quality? 

Yes. The unit

dehumidifies and cleans the air naturally. Filtration
devices provide active control of air quality and
help to eliminate airborne contaminants.

How does the thermostat work?

How long should the Climate Right™ last?


unit is rated for NEMA R-12 insulated enclosure.
The unit should last 5-10 years under normal
operating conditions.

Is Climate Right™ Safe for Pets? 

Yes. Note that

a suitable ideal temperature for pets in the outside

General Systems Diagnosis:

1. The unit does not power on. Check to see if unit is plugged in 

to normal wall 110/120v wall socket. Consult Troubleshooting 
telephone number below. This problem cannot be troubleshot 
by email. (It is likely that a connection on the internal control 
panel has become loose and will require careful guidance for 
safety reasons). Do not attempt to remove the unit casing 
and fix. 

2. Fans are running but unit not cooling or heating. Consult 

Troubleshooting telephone number or email, whichever you 
prefer, below. This problem would likely be a capacitor or 
compressor issue, which would need to be handled by our 
qualified troubleshooting team.

3. Excessive vibration or noise. Consult Troubleshooting telephone number or email, whichever 

you prefer, below. This problem would likely be loose screws, or a loose compressor fitting, 
which would need to be handled by our qualified troubleshooting team.

4. Excessive noise coming from fan. Consult Troubleshooting telephone number or email, 

whichever you prefer, below. This problem would likely be a fan that has been "jolted" or 
"knocked loose" during shipping, which would need to be handled by our qualified 
troubleshooting team.

5. Cooling or heating function decreased. Check filter or condenser fins on the unit. Make sure

filters and condenser fins are clean and free of debris or particles.

6. Display does not show temperature. Consult Troubleshooting telephone number or email, 

whichever you prefer, below. This problem would likely be control board or thermostat issue, 
which would need to be handled by our qualified troubleshooting team.

7. Fault codes:

Fault E01: Indoor temperature sensor fault, wiring or sensor.
Fault E02: Evaporator temperature sensor fault, wiring or sensor.

Consult Troubleshooting telephone number or email, whichever you prefer, below.

8. Hose assembly problems. Insure you have all parts listed in Assembly section. Follow the 

directions very carefully. (We have many calls about people trying to put hose OVER the 
coupler. It goes INSIDE the coupler. Also, the mesh filter is located inside one of the hoses).

Troubleshooting, cont...

9. Unit "overcools" or "overheats". Check recommended enclosure sizes for the unit. This can be

found in the Operation section. Climate Right is not responsible, and does not warrant, 
miscalculations of your enclosure cubic footage, and mistakes made in selection of unit. CR-
2500 works for 5-350 cubic foot enclosures. CR-7000 works for 350-1,200 cubic foot 
enclosures. This is meant to be an approximate guide and may vary case by case.
