Can I use my chiller outdoors?

The chiller was designed to perform in ambient temperatures from 65 - 85ºF (room temperature). It will still perform above 85ºF, but less efficiently. High humidity environments also makes it difficult for the chillers to shed the heat as well, and could cause corrosion in the chiller - possibly even electrical shorts. This will be true of all chiller compressors, not just the TECO chillers. Using the chiller outdoors will violate the terms of the warranty.
