Making the Switch: A Guide to Transitioning Your Climate Control from Cooling to Heating

April 23, 2023

As the seasons change and the temperatures drop in Auckland, it's important to make sure that your climate control system is ready to keep you warm and cozy during the colder months. And who better to guide you through the process than air conditioning expert, Simpson CC?

First and foremost, it's important to remember that transitioning from cooling to heating isn't just a matter of flipping a switch. There are a few key steps you need to take to ensure that your air conditioning unit is properly prepared for the change.

Step one: Clean and maintain your unit. Before you switch from cooling to heating, it's important to give your air conditioning unit a thorough cleaning and make sure that it's in good working order. This will not only improve the efficiency of your system, but it will also prevent any potential issues from arising during the transition.

Step two: Check your thermostat settings. Make sure that your thermostat is set to "heat" mode and that the temperature is set to your desired level. This may seem like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised how many people forget to switch their thermostat settings and end up freezing in the middle of the night!

Step three: Be patient. It can take a little time for your air conditioning unit to transition from cooling to heating, so don't expect instant results. Give your system a few hours to adjust to the new settings before you start cranking up the heat.

And now for Simpson CC's top tips for a smooth climate control transition:

  • Don't wait until the last minute to switch from cooling to heating. Ideally, you should make the switch a few weeks before the temperature starts to drop to ensure that your unit is properly prepared.
  • Don't forget to change your air filters. A dirty air filter can reduce the efficiency of your system and cause problems during the transition.
  • Do schedule a maintenance check with a professional air conditioning technician. They can make sure that your unit is in good working order and address any potential issues before they become major problems.

By following these simple steps and Simpson CC's expert advice, you'll be able to make a smooth transition from cooling to heating and keep your home or business comfortable all year round.
