Most split systems have similar performance specifications. Almost all such devices function normally if the temperature is not higher than 25 degrees above zero and not lower than 5 degrees below zero. If the temperature is below the minimum threshold, the oil used for lubrication freezes and the air conditioner stops working and may even break. If the temperature is above the maximum value of +25 degrees, then the system is threatened with overheating, which is also able to disable it. It is important to consider these threshold values when operating the device; you should also understand
Before setting the air conditioner to the heating mode, you need to make sure that its operating temperature is within the operating limits, otherwise the system may fail. Undoubtedly, different companies - manufacturers (for example, LG, Samsung or General) produce many different models, but nevertheless there is a certain universal model for switching on heating:
- It is necessary to turn on the device (power button, signed as “On”).
- Then press the “Heat” key, which means “heat”.
- If this button is not present, other options may be present: “Mode”, or any other buttons under which icons such as “sun”, “drop”, “fan”, “snow” are drawn. If none of these buttons are present, this means that the system is not able to heat.
- If the “Mode” button is present, you need to press it several times until the “sun” or the signature “Heat” is displayed.
- Using the switching arrows or the “+/-” buttons, you need to set the comfortable temperature.
After carrying out this entire procedure, the fan will turn on, and after five (maximum ten) minutes, warm air will be formed, heated to a temperature set previously by the user. Some remote control models can be configured differently - it is recommended that you read the instructions before setting up.
To turn on the air conditioner for heating mode, it is not always necessary to use a remote control. On any split system there is an external panel (sometimes hidden by a protective screen), the buttons of which duplicate the keys of the remote control. This is done for situations when the remote control is lost, broken or far away. Using the panel, you can set the system to heating mode in the same way.
What to do if the heating does not turn on?
There are two main options: either the setting was incorrect, or there is a breakdown in the device itself. It is recommended to turn off the air conditioner and repeat all the steps again. If after ten minutes there is no heat from the device, there is a breakdown. The most common malfunction is the lack of freon necessary for the functioning of the heating system. In this situation, it is necessary to take the air conditioner for repair, or call qualified specialists home, especially if the device is under warranty.
In addition, a situation is possible when the air conditioner is turned on at temperatures incompatible with its normal functioning. It should be noted that some manufacturing companies produce additional modifications that expand the range of operating temperatures from -30 to +30 degrees Celsius.
