Efficiency and efficiency of air conditioner heating
Efficiency is indicated in the passport, it is displayed in percent. Also the EER and COP values are written in the document.
EER shows the cooling efficiency of the space and COP is the average of heating and cooling efficiency. Usually EER is less than COP because in the process of operation the compressor reproduces warm air and increases the temperature of freon. These criteria are used to establish the heat efficiency of the appliance.
In the certificate of air conditioner the following indicators are shown:
According to the data, at consumption of 1 kilowatt of electric energy a split-system will give 2.5 kilowatt of cold air and 2.8 kilowatt of heat. But these values often change depending on the temperature difference between the apartment and the outdoors. The higher the range, the lower the values. The colder it is outside, the less efficient the air conditioner, it heats the apartment worse.
To increase the efficiency of the air conditioner for heat, follow the steps below:
- Watch for formation of ice on the outdoor unit.
- Use a special winter set for the system.
- Perform preventive cleaning of the device from dust, clogs, dirt. They affect the deterioration of operation.
- When installing the outdoor unit of the air conditioner to choose an area protected from moisture and wind.
If it is freezing outside it is more efficient to use other heating devices.
Why do you need a universal remote control for air conditioner?
Today no one will be surprised by a modern air conditioning system installed in the house, which is able to cool and heat the air in the room to the desired temperature. Almost all modern climatic equipment has a self-diagnostic function which notifies the owner of possible malfunctions of the equipment.
In addition, any home split system can adjust the direction and strength of airflow, and the most “advanced” models, the dehumidification function and automatic selection of the most comfortable microclimate. And as a rule all the control of this miracle of climate technics takes place with the help of wireless IR remote control, which regularly has the disgusting property to get lost, to break, to become a toy for kids and the most awful thing. dinner for our four-legged friends.
It is often rather difficult to obtain a new one, especially for outdated models of climate control equipment. In order to find them on sale you need a lot of time and sometimes even money, because the original split-system’s control device can cost up to 5 ths.
Inexpensive and rather qualitative universal remotes for a conditioner were invented by the masters from Celestial Empire.
What one needs to do to switch on the split system without remote control
If the remote controller is lost or malfunctioning, you can turn on the air conditioner with the power button on its indoor unit. In this case it is not possible to control the settings. The unit will operate according to the previously programmed parameters.
It is possible to control the operation of some modern models of air conditioners with the help of built-in Wi-Fi module. In this case it is required to connect split-system to wireless router via hot-spot.
convenient variant can be control of the system by phone. You will need an IR sensor on your smartphone and the appropriate software.

Instructions for setting up the universal remote control
Regardless of the model all multipurpose devices are adjusted according to the same principle which consists in entering necessary code into the memory of the remote control. Ideally, the remote control is supplied with a manual with a table of codes for the different models of air-conditioning equipment. Remote control setting can be performed in two modes: automatic and manual.
Automatic mode is particularly convenient if you do not know what model your conditioner belongs to, or if its name simply is not in the table of codes. In any case, the first thing you will need to do is carefully study the instructions that come with the remote control.
Setting up the remote control in manual mode
Some remote controls can be adjusted only in manual mode, which may take about 2 hours.
After you have studied the instruction, you will have to program the conditioner by yourself, manually choosing the codes, which are written in the point of your climatic equipment manufacturer.
For each manufacturer of air conditioner about 6 different codes are presented which you have to enter manually for tuning of universal device
Insert batteries into the remote control and turn it on by pressing the corresponding button. Then the basic operation modes of your climatic equipment should light up on it. You should also find the name of your technique beforehand in order to enter the corresponding code for the setting of the remote control.
Press “Select” button, and then enter the first code from the table after the name of the brand. In this case, you will have to use the number buttons on the remote control to enter the code. Press “Select” again and confirm by pressing “ОК” button.
Then you need to check all operation modes of your conditioner with the new remote control. If the basic functions do not work, try entering the following code from the table. You will probably need to repeat this action several times until you find the necessary code.
Automatic remote control setting mode
If there is no code for your split-system in the table below, you should set the unit in automatic mode.
This way differs from previous one only that you will not have to enter all codes manually.
Before buying a universal remote control, you must make sure that, in addition to the manual mode, it supports automatic code search
Point the remote control at the appliance in such a way that it can receive all its commands. Press the “Select” button for 30 seconds. During this time, the unit will switch to automatic code search mode, sending commands and scanning all possible codes beginning from 0001.
Configuring Remote Control Air Conditioning to Cold. Heat
After the remote control starts to operate the air conditioner you will hear a distinctive signal coming from the climate equipment. To stop the process of code scanning, press any button on the remote control, and then use the remote control to check if all air conditioner commands work.
If remote control operates your conditioner only partially and does not switch between its operation modes, you should repeat the process of code search. You will have to do it exactly until the remote control operates the split-system correctly.
Remote control stops working after setting a code
Even after finding correct code we can face a situation when remote control stops working fully. First of all, you should check whether the conditioner is connected to the network.
If the air conditioner is plugged in and there has been no power failure, it is important to check if the code you set has been tripped.
Such situation can arise because of the elementary failure in the electric network, which appeared against the background of its overload with other electrical appliances in your house
If the remote control works, try again to set the autodetect code or enter it yourself. And only in that case if the remote control and conditioner do not react, the problem can consist in a breakage of climatic equipment.
