I have just purchased a property which has a vulcan-bonaire summer breeze system with the control panel located upstairs, with ducts throughout the house. I presume this is a cooling and heating unit but i am unable to take it off its heating setting and there doesn't appear to be a manual anywhere. How can i turn the cool setting on?

Re: Vulcan-Bonaire : summer breeze
This unit is a cooling unit only. I don't know what switch you are looking at but I don't think it's for the evap. cooler(swamp cooler). I am in the Phoenix, Arizona area and it's very common to have a evap. cooler and a seperate heat/cool system as on the hottest days the evap. cooler doesn't cool enough. I hope this helps. Please give me a positive rating. Thank you.

has the system air filters been serviced lately
is the system circulation fab been cleaned to allow full air circulation of the system
call in a technician to check for vermin infestation preventing the system from working properly
I was able to fix my Pyrox ducted gas heater (flashing between HC01 and F08 by pressing the reset button on the main PCB located in the main heating unit.
The reset button is located next to a set of indicator led's. It's easy to get to by just removing the covering shroud.

i had a similar problem, and a six inch duct and inline booster fan didnt help, the room was just to far away from the furnace and ac. to save energy, i use an oil rad in the winter, and a portable ac in the summer, it works great.my house is a back split, so its a common problem. in the summer, all downstairs dampers should be closed to push the cold air upstairs ,as it will come back down anyway and the basement is cooler as it is. so if you have 4 flores, you close the bottom 2. bungalow you close the basement
pretty vague, but i'll give it a shot. i assume that your upper and lower floors are heated by the same unit. of course if your not sure you better check to see if there is a second t stat for up stairs in case there is a second unit that heats it. there may also be a zoning system that seals off upstairs ducts unless the zone stat for that area is calling for heat. so look for a second stat upstairs if you think it may be zoned. now to you original question. lets assume the unit is not zoned and only one unit heats both. then you may have a mechanical damper in the ductwork ,usually located close to the indoor blower that shifts to force more air upstairs in summer and more air downstairs in winter, these can usually be shifted as needed to control air to upper lower and are usually marked upstairs dornstairs etc. if you have no dampers etc, then you have reason to suspect the ductwork has come apart or been crushed before it gets upstairs. you'll have to go up or under the house etc and try to find duct problems.good luck
