When the winter cold arrives, we begin to wonder if our air conditioning equipment will also be useful when temperatures start to drop. With the hot-cold equipment, we have the great advantage of being able to use our air conditioning equipment throughout the year.
How should we use it correctly?
To begin we must know that the air conditioning used as heating implies another configuration at the time of use. If we have the equipment in summer mode, that is, in cold we must modify it to make use of the heat pump that the equipment carries. Since if we raise the degrees in “Cold Mode” we will not get the heat pump that our team has integrated, start working .. Otherwise, not only will you not be able to heat your stay, but you will also be wasting this incredible functionality.
To activate this heat pump, we must change the “Mode” on the remote control and choose the “Heat Mode” generally represented by the Sun symbol.
Once the equipment is in this heat mode, other configurations can be made to optimize its operation.
– It regulates the temperature, it is recommended to use it between 20 and 22ºC throughout the day, and between 16 and 18ºC at night, with this we will be able to make more efficient use of the air conditioning unit.
– It modifies the position of the deflector or leja of the unit, since the hot air is less heavy than the cold, reason why it tends to raise and to remain in the high part of the stay. Therefore, placing the deflector vertically or downwards, we contribute to the hot air being distributed throughout the room.
What are the advantages of having an air conditioner with a heat pump?
- Useful equipment all year round: They offer cooling in summer and heating in winter.
- They provide a great energy saving: The use of heat pump equipment with Inverter technology and energy efficiency can reduce energy consumption by up to 30% compared to traditional heating systems.
- They guarantee a clean and quality air: Thanks to special filters that eliminate particles and bacteria, viruses, microbes, etc … in the air.
- No CO2 emissions: These heat pump systems do not produce direct CO2 emissions.
- Simple maintenance: simply clean once and per year as described in the manual.
