Using the Roadrunner Comfort Controller
In a nutshell, here’s how it works:
ON takes you to the ON screen below
MANUAL takes you to one of two sets of manual controls
OPTION takes you to the Option screen (below)
The “ON at” time appears when if a turn-on time is set, otherwise this space will be blank.
Air blows at the Set Temperature shown
Fan turns ON and OFF automatically
WARMER raises set temperature
COOLER lowers set temperature
Sched takes you to the SCHEDULE screen where you can set times for auto turn-on and off
SPEED changes fan speed
DST turns Daylight Savings Time on/off
SLEEP turns screen blanking on/off
SETUP takes you to the Setup screen (not shown here)
Using the iPhone app
The RoadrunnerComfort iPhone app (in the app store, search for “RoadrunnerComfort”, no spaces) lets you remotely raise and lower your set temperature from anywhere within your wifi network. It also allows you to change fan speed, or control the cooler manually.
The app works much like the controller, but instead of “OPTION”, it has “SETUP”, which enables different, app-specific choices.
The Roadrunner symbol takes you to the help screen.
speed LOW (or HIGH) changes the fan speed. This button can be hidden via the Setup screen.
WARMER raises the set temperature, COOLER lowers it.
SETUP takes you to a screen where you can configure controls and perform installation

Tips & Tricks
The Leave the Roadrunner Comfort (RRC) ON and it will ramp up as the morning warms and wind down as the evening cools.
The fan will sometimes turn ON or OFF for just a minute or two. This is normal.
The sensor clipped to the vent uses a battery that will last years. When it needs changing (but with time left to get a replacement), a message will flash on the cooler display (battery type may vary).
Sometimes the RRC needs a reset to keep working properly. The RESET button is on the side of the wall unit. It’s always OK to reset RRC, it remembers ALL settings and restarts promptly.
Once a minute, this message appears while RRC reads the temperature from the sensor at the vent. While this shows, touches are ignored (sorry).
There are two different screens for operating the RRC manually. Touch the title “MANUAL” to switch between them.
