Best Answer

Dry Mode is a function that will reduce the humidity in the room. In this mode, as the air passes through the air conditioner the humidity will condense on the evaporator so that the air comes out drier. Reducing the humidity makes you feel cooler and more comfortable. Dry mode uses less power than cool mode.

Do I have to shut the windows when I use the dry mode on the air conditioner?

No, you don't have to shut the window, but If by "dry mode" you mean "dehumidify" I would think "yes" - close your windows. Assuming it is more humid outside than inside, leaving your windows open would make running in dry mode non-effective. You would be drying the air inside only to have more humid air come right in the window. A waste of electricity and wear on your unit. I can't see any reason to leave windows open unless your unit is only running on "Fan" to circulate the air.
