How long does the exercise mode run?
Vee 
from California 
May 03, 2020
Answer
The 7.5kW unit will exercise for 12 minutes once a week. I personally would recommend going to the 10kW unit since you can select Weekly/Bi-Weekly/Monthly exercise options, and the unit only runs 5 minutes which is more fuel efficient.
