Yes, either start the engines or use ground power to warm the cabin.

The original cooling system was electric but with an update we got the correct engine driven a/c compressors so for cooling you'd need to start 1 and 4.

I start 3 & 4 before loading passengers. Once the cabin temp is OK then
I load them and continue my check list while they are loading.

Once loading is complete I shut down the GPU and start 2 & 1.
