So, you managed to purchase and install an air conditioner in your apartment or office. If the window is overcast in the off-season, and besides, your air conditioner is equipped with a heating function, then why not treat yourself to warm air? In many models, it is possible to supply warm air at a given speed.
But here’s the problem. You can’t turn on the heat mode in any way, and the instructions were lost during transportation. Do not despair! In this article, we will tell you in detail how to turn on air conditioners for heat and how to properly operate the remote control.

Recommendations for using the remote control
Turning on the air conditioner for heating is still half the job. In order for the device to serve you faithfully, you need to use the remote control correctly. Otherwise, you will have to manage the operating modes while standing on a stool under the wall unit of the air conditioner.
First of all, put new batteries in the remote control. They are usually included, but if you do not have them, you should not take out the batteries from other devices and insert them into the remote control. Buy new batteries and use them.
Treat the remote control carefully, do not drop it on the floor or other hard surfaces, do not fill it with water or other liquids. Do not try to adjust the air conditioner to heat while you are at the other end of the room or even in the next room. Come closer to the device, point the remote control at the wall unit and adjust it this way.
In many modern devices, the operating modes of the air conditioner for cold and heating are provided. The heating mode on air conditioners is especially useful in early autumn or late spring, when it is still cold outside, but there is no heating.
