Best Way to Put in A14000BTU Air Conditioner?

I have storm windows that interfere with my air conditioner so I have to use a pair of 2 x 4"s. One is between the window and storm window, and the other is on the window sill. My AC sits on the 2 x 4's. Reading the instructions that come with the AC is important. You want to make sure that the AC is leaning out the window a slight bit instead of perfectly level because water drains out of the unit. Basically though you just set the AC in the window and slide the top window down to the top of the AC. The top of the window setting on the AC is the main thing. Then, screw in a little bracket to secure the window. If you do not have a bracket, just run a screw into the window so it can not slide up. The other thing is a 140000 BTU AC may have a plug that will not plug into a wall socket. They usually have oversized plugs that require a different socket. An electrician will have to install that on a circuit breaker with no other uses (a dedicated circuit). When I bought my AC, I first looked at the plug to make sure that it would plug into a standard outlet. They are usually 5000 BTU units or maybe 6000. You have to look at the plug and see what it has. Good luck

1. No AC and it's 95 out! HELP my air conditioner stopped working?

here are the possible problems...1 dirty a-coil and its freezing over 2 low on freon and unit is freezing over..3 bad compressor.4 bad capacitor for compressor(shiny oval thing with wires connected to the top of it) 5 wires burnt off where they connect to compressor...since you said the outside units fan was running this means your thermostat is good and you have power. ..if the inside unit is not freezing up then that only leaves the compressor not running...check the a-coil and make sure it is not froze over

2. Air Conditioner Dripping Water on Carpet Please Help!?

the above is correct a pluged drain line will cause leaking.so will a ice build up on the coil that can come from resticted air flow like a durty filter if there is any ice on the unit or a lack of air comming out then shut the unit off it may take up to a day to stop driping.check for a filter all units have them .some types of ac are water coils inwitch case a leak in the coil will do that all the time running or not.

3. How can I determine if my houses air conditioner or attic insulation is making me sick?

It's black mold poisoning There are a number of blood test that test for the effects of the mold toxin on certain systems of the body. LOOK ON THE DIAGNOSIS PAGE TO FIND TESTING THAT YOU NEED TO HAVE DONE TO DETERMINE IF YOU HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO TOXIC MOLD. Since mold toxins are the cause of this syndrome, effective treatment is geared toward removal of mold toxins.

4. does air conditioner portable cool room down to around 70-75?

It will. You can save on your bill by putting the temperature on 76 or above. Place a fan to blow the air around and that will help. Keep the sun out.

5. what size air conditioner do I need?

Your exsisting unit is probably is large enough. However, moving the air to other areas of the house is going to require fans to move the air. Cold air does not move as easy as warm air. Try it!.

6. What are the dangers of running an air conditioner without the condensation floater safety switch?

If he is willing to take the responsibility of it getting damaged by telling you to run it anyway, then do not be concerned with the consequences. He told you to run it that way. He's prolly the person who unplugged the freakin switch to begin with. Just run it till it dies. --------------- Dan has a point that I did not think of right away. Most of the time the drains clog from excessive algae growth. Pouring bleach down the little drain may help get rid of the algae.

My Home Central Air Conditioner Is Not Cooling My Home Enough,what's the Poblem?
After you replace the filter, make sure all your louvers are wide open. Then go outside and thoroughly clean the condenser, It may not look dirty, but it is. If you can access the evaporator, clean that too. Finally, close the curtains and roll down the shades1. Is a 6 year old 19 SEER Central air conditioner still considered energy efficient or is it time to upgrade?A six year old system should be in great working order. If it has been well maintained and it has not suffered environmental abuse then, it should last 9-14 more years. 19 SEER is in the top 2/3 of available efficiency today. Conversely, in 5 years time who's to say though.Typically manufactures warrant parts for up to 10 years from date of install. These warranties do require registration of the product with the manufacture (something a majority of contractor fail to do, ultimately it is the homeowners responsibility). If you have purchased the home recently, in some cases the warranty is transferable to the new owner (call the installing contractor to find out).As with any mechanical piece of equipment it is always a good idea to protect your investment by having a certified HVAC professional maintain the equipment at least annually.Example of extreme damage most likely due to an animal urinating on a condenser coil. This kind of damage is not covered by warranty, and would necessitate replacement of at the very least the outdoor unit.Hope this helps.Is a 6 year old 19 SEER Central air conditioner still considered energy efficient or is it time to upgrade?Is A 6 year old 19 SEER Central air conditioner still considered energy efficient or is it time to upgrade?2. Sears wants about $7000 to replace a central air conditioner in Connecticut?Sir, Sears has the biggest markup there is. period. You can get down to almost half that with three bids.3. Which Central Air Conditioner should I go with? Is the 16 Seer worth the extra $1800?I would stick to the Trane unit. The units can only become so efficient and after that, the change becomes so minimal it does not make sense to go higher. I believe our AC increases our bill $30 a month when we run it. Even if you run it for every month, it will take almost 8 years for it to pay for itself. Trane is a more common name and service people should be more comfortable working with them if you ever need. See if Trane offers a higher SEER value, I am sure they do. If it is more sensible than $1800, I would think about it. By the way, are these installed prices? Is it only the condenser portion or do you need a new A Coil as well?4. Which is cheaper to run on a central air conditioner system? Just the system or with both the system and fan.The fan switch is for running the fan continuous. Regardless if the heat or cooling is switched on. If your heating or cooling is uneven throughout the house it might be an advantage to run the fan continuously to circulate better, or if you have allergies and have the better filters it would help keep the air cleaner. Otherwise it will be more expensive to heat and cool with it on because of the electrical consumption of the fan.5. my central air conditioner started leaking water from a plastic hose outside the house. whats up with that?My central air unit leaks when the temperature outside the house is close to the temperature inside the house. Typically at around 72 degrees, which is what we keep the house temperature at. I am not sure if the unit leaks outside, it probably does, but it definitely leaks inside the house from the 2 hoses which go into the basement floor (to a sump I guess). This is an old house, but I've only lived here for a few months, so I do not know all the Idiosyncrasies of the AC unit. It did freeze over once and stopped generating cool air. I would really appreciate your insight on this as it differs slightly than the original question.6. Comfort Maker Central Air Conditioner - what do you think of this brand? Is it Crap or Good?Who makes this model. Sometimes name brand manufacturers make cheaper models and use other brand names. They are usually lower quality low end models
Sharp May Sell Copier, Air Conditioner Businesses: Media
TOKYO (Reuters) - Sharp Corp ( 6753.T ) may sell its copier and air-conditioner businesses, Japanese media including the Nikkei business daily reported on Friday, as shrinking piles of cash prompt the company to consider restructuring its non-core assets.Sharp, which makes screens for Apple Inc's ( AAPL.O ) iPad and iPhone, needs to refinance as much as 360 billion yen ($4.54 billion) of short-term commercial paper and will need a further 200 billion yen in September next year to cover a maturing convertible bond.Desperate for funds to refinance looming debt rollovers, Sharp is seeking more than 100 billion yen for its key solar panel plant in Sakai, western Japan, as part of an asset sale, local media said on Thursday.Sharp may also sell its buildings in Tokyo as well as television assembly plants in Poland, Malaysia, Mexico and Poland, a company source told Reuters this week.Kyocera Corp ( 6971.T ), Daiwa House Industry Co ( 1925.T ) and Daikin Industries Ltd ( 6367.T ) are among the companies that have reportedly expressed interest in buying the copier and air-conditioner businesses, the Nikkei reported.Sharp has also signed contracts with two overseas consulting firms to help it determine which assets to sell, the Nikkei added.The maker of Aquos TVs will also sell its 0.6 percent stake in Japanese camera maker Olympus Corp ( 7733.T ) and is leaning towards disposing of its 9.8 percent interest in lithium ion battery joint venture Eliiy Power Co, the Nikkei reported.Sharp said in a statement on Friday that it is considering various options to improve operations and did not comment further on the reports.Shares of Sharp were unchanged at 175 yen, versus a 0.2 percent rise in the Nikkei 225 average .N225 in early Tokyo trade. ($1 = 79.2650 Japanese yen)
Air Conditioner Leaking in Attic?
I assume that your compressor is outside and your condenser is in the attic. The compressor pumps cold air to the condenser. The fan moves your household air over the condenser where the warm air hits the cold condenser. That causes the moisture in your air to condense and fall into your drain pan. The water in that drain pan is piped to the outside where it drains. The cold air pipe coming from your compressor will cause moisture to condense on it if not properly insulated. Make sure that pipe is fully covered to avoid premature condensation on the inlet pipe. Also make sure that all the condensate falling off your condenser is going into the drip pan. After that, you need to insure that the drip pan is draining properly to the outside. Pretty mechanical, just check one step at a time.1. 4 Bricks Needed for Air Conditioner in Window?Walmart sells bricks as does any of your hardware or home improvement stores2. air conditioner fan runs constantly in auto?i bet your indoor fan relay is shot. OR the t-stat could be shorted out. i think the indoor fan relay is shot. it's stuck closed so that anytime the unit is on, the relay is closed and the fan comes on. (cheap fix. = 3. How do you clean an old air conditioner?could desire to you spray it down sturdy with Lysol Disinfectant Spray? enable it dry in the previous turning it on returned. basically a speedy, effortless & low priced theory! different than that, which you ought to to purchase a sparkling A/C unit. If it extremely is a window kind. they are presently particularly low priced. you will discover one for under a $a hundred.004. what's wrong with my air conditioner?Depending on what the smell was (i.e. burnt rubber) it could be a burned fan belt. If the unit turns on, I do not think it is electrical connection problem. It could also be a bad relay to the fan (i.e. the compressor is creating conditioned refrigerant but the fan wo not switch on so the unit turns off). Regardless, if the air conditioner is new it is probably still covered under warranty (generally parts and labor are included, free of charge, for a year, but I would check with the manufacturer).5. Air conditioner in the house and electricity bill.....?You are right the longer it tuns the more it cost. If you turn down the thermostat the longer the unit will run and therefore it will run longer. It does not go faster if you turn the temp down to cool to that temp but it does run longer. You are charged by the KW or how many watts you use for energy. One hour is one hour so it does not matter unless you have a high, low medium setting for the fan then you may see a little difference. But it is a matter of how long it tuns, you are right. Good luck :)6. sensitive to cold air conditioner?When I started displaying these symptoms I called some friends of mine who were medical researchers. Their answer was this: Buy a saline nasal spray and use it twice a day - religiously. Once when you wake up and before you go to sleep. Okay, I thought this was too easy to fix anything. Let me tell you - it is amazing. Apparently it keeps your sinus cavities cleaned out and moist so the sinus trouble can not develop. It is a very inexpensive fix if it works for you. And, my sensitivity to cold diminished. I still do not like being cold and will usually have a sweater with me but nothing like it used to be. I've told many people about this and they've all reported significant improvement. Give it a try and see how it works for you.7. Problem with house air conditioner?Is it central or window unit? Is the fan running(on evaporator and condensor if central)? Is the compressor running?Are the fins clean (air flow)? Is the power to it on(check breakers)?
4 Easy Rules for Portable Air Conditioner Maintenance
Unlike the conventional central and window air conditioner, portable air conditioners can fit perfectly wherever you'll need them. They don't require any ducting or installation and they are virtually flexible that can be situated anywhere.Because portable cooling units can be independently operated, targeting specific areas can easily be achieved. In order to keep your portable unit efficient and functional for a very long time, the following rules should always be observed.Rule #1 Every air conditioner requires a good ventilation to function properly, either through walls or windows. As for your quiet portable air conditioner, be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions regarding its proper ventilation as not all portable air conditioners share the same ventilation requirement.Your portable cooling unit usually comes with a free venting kit or an option of buying one as part of its package. This kit includes a window kit for different window size and shape, it also includes a hose. Be sure the window you intend to install for your portable air conditioner fits perfectly with your available kit.Rule #2 Water Tray Removals. Every portable air conditioner has its unique way in dealing with accumulated condensates. As some portable air conditioners offer convenient water tray removal, others are built with continuous drainage hose or also known as dual exhaust hoses.If your unit comes with a tray, always make sure to empty it according to your manufacturers recommended frequency.Otherwise, your quiet portable air conditioner might dysfunction, automatically shutting down or its tray could spill out. Portable AC units have built-in tray, better check this part early while choosing in order to avoid any confusion.Rule#3 Availability of Electricity. This is very important. Make sure that the energy you supply for your air conditioner is adequate that meets its required standard. Insufficient supply of energy will not only blow its fuse off, it can also destroy the whole cooling unit.Avoid using extension cords for your quiet portable air conditioner as much as possible too as cords could get overloaded. Electrical cords are also risky that presents fire hazard.Rule #4 Exhaust Hose. The exhaust hose is important in order to keep your portable cooling unit functional so make sure to keep this part straight while its venting system is being used.It is generally okay to shorten exhaust hose upon installation, but do not add any additional length. By following these safety rules you should be well on your way in enjoying a cool summer.
Portable Air Conditioner Leaks. No Manual?
well untill you figure out where the water tank is or that is missing you need to catch the water. they make water as you know . so just get a big plastic tub and set the AC in the tub to hold the water. you may be missing the drain tray.1. Is heating feature in an air conditioner bad?The biggest difference between them is that reversible AC has an extra 4-way valve to reverse the flow. That's not a very fragile component. The seller might be either talking from his personal experience that's particular to one make or series, or he might be simply employing FUD in order to convince you into purchasing item with higher profit margin for him (most likely imho). On the other hand, it's quite easy to ruin the unit by keeping it on as outside temp falls too low. The heating is designed to be only an accessory method ran occasionally on chilly summer days and not to replace a furnace in the winter (that's what big heat pumps are for). He might be simply trying to avoid future problems with careless customers who fail to adhere to manual2. Air conditioner leaking water?It is normal and supposed to. It is condensation which drips from the condenser into a tray under it which then drains from a hole in the corner of the tray. Make sure it stays clear of sediment so that it will not clog it up! ,' )3. Why is my window air conditioner?set the temperature away from "auto"4. Would it be possible to create an air conditioner that is powered by heat?Technically yes: if you can generate electricity using your heat source (or rather, heat differential), then you can use that electricity to power a refrigeration unit. Just make sure that your heat-to-power conversion is happening outside the thing you want to refrigerate.Practically, on a large scale, this is no different from a power station converting heat from fuel into electricity. On a small scale, you would use a small Sterling engine or TEC to generate the electricity. The system would likely be 5. Return air for a 5 ton air conditioner unit?first why are you installing a five ton unit....after doing a heat calucation you will find it equals to one ton for every 750 sq ft .unless you have a lot of windows or glass doors facing southwest. then you would reduce this to 700 sq ft per ton.......so if you have a 3000 sq ft house you would only need four tons of air conditioning. or four and a half if you have a lot of southwesterly facing windows and glass doors. ...you measure duct work by sq ft . ..so you would only have half of what you need ..for round duct you figure sq ft by multiplying the radius or half of the diameter squared times pi. this will give you square feet..then add all of the sq ft from each duct for total sq ft. .if you dont need 5 tons get a smaller unit6. Air Conditioner now with new furnace - Later - Or Not at all?might desire to you be a touch extra imprecise? swap the thermostat to relax, pull the temperature set element to a element under the ambient temperature, and viola! -if the interior fan is working, and the outdoors condenser unit & compressor is working, then if the clear out is sparkling, the evaporator & condenser coils are sparkling, there is adequate refrigerant in the gadget, and your shape is a minimum of a few insulated and potential effective, then your gadget might desire to do its interest. If none of those situations are met, call a qualified, useful tech. BTW: aircon is not lots the cooling,.... its working the air during the evaporator and confident, pulling some warmth, the foremost purpose of a gadget is to tug the moisture out of it. (cooling the air to under its dew element) Dry air is delicate air....the cooling is an advantage
Air Conditioning Efficiency - Is Higher Efficiency Worth the Extra Cost?
Air conditioning is not just a luxury item for many houses anymore. When building a new house it is often included without question. There are so many options when it comes to central air in a house. The air conditioner BTU is a big thing to consider. The efficiency of the air conditioner is also a big factor to look at. Many new home builders will include a builder model AC unit in the price of the house. If the homeowner wants to have a better, higher efficiency unit, they have to pay extra for that. How much extra should they pay and still come out with a good deal?There are a few things to check out when upgrading the air conditioning unit. When buying the higher efficiency model it will usually include things like high and low pressure cutout switches in the outdoor condenser unit. This can be very valuable and save the compressor from going bad if there is a problem.That could be worth the extra cost right there. Also with a higher efficiency unit, the indoor air handler will include a higher efficiency blower motor. The ECM motors will run much more efficient then a regular motor. The efficiency is even greater if the motor is run at low speeds much of the time.The most confusing issue with any air conditioning is the SEER rating that the US Government uses to rate air conditioning units. The simplest formula I can use to explain this is that the SEER rating compares the cooling BTU's that are made by the unit per unit (KW) of electricity used. Usually expressed as BTU's/Kilowatt of electric. Of course the more BTU's produce per kilowatt of electric consumed the better off you are.To arrive at a usage number you would have to figure up the number of hours per year that you may be running the air conditioning unit. That can be done by taking the degree day information provided by the weather service for your area and through some fairly complex formula's coming up with usage for your house. I suggest that it may be much easier to just figure how many days you will be running the air conditioner and how many hours a day it might actually run. The specifications provided by the manufacturer of the unit you will use show the electrical usage of the unit. Take the watts per hour consumed by the unit, times the hours run time, divide by 1000 and you will have the kilowatt hour of electric that the unit will consume. Now take that and times it by the number of days a year the unit will run. Then figure that times the cost of the electric per kilowatt hour from your electric company.If with these numbers you find that your pay back will be five years or less than I would for sure go with the higher efficiency unit. Keep in mind also that in some states the electricity costs are going to go up by 50% or more in the next few years. You may want to run the numbers at those higher electricity costs. The farther south you live, the more days you will use your air conditioning unit. Therefore it will be more beneficial to get a higher efficiency unit the farther south you live.Heat Pump units often are rated much higher in efficiency that straight air conditioning units. Especially in the mid to southern climates in may pay to look at a heat pump unit. I will try to address that in the future. Heat Pumps will be a whole separate subject.So to wrap up the thoughts on air conditioning efficiency. As electric prices rise the cost of the higher efficiency units will be much more practical. Higher efficiency air conditioners have more safety controls built into them. You can do some figuring and find out how much more you can spend for a higher efficiency unit and still get your money back in saved electricity. There are many good, better, best options out there. Ask your contractor to quote the prices for the different efficiency units available. If you do not ask usually the prices will be the down and dirty lowest price he can find unit. That rarely is a good thing. If your contractor does not want to quote prices on higher efficiency units, then find one that will. You will not regret it.
Exhausted Uber Driver Left Baby Girl to Die in Roasting Car After 24-hour Shift
An Uber driver left his five-month-old daughter to die in a roasting car after he finished a 24-hour shift.Michael Thigpen, 34, was sentenced to ten years in prison in Logan County, Kentucky on Thursday after he made, what the judge called, 'probably the saddest guilty plea I've ever taken.'Thigpen's infant daughter, Emma, died of hyperthermia on June 10, 2016 after she and her two young siblings were left in a van parked outside their father's house.Prosecutors said Thigpen had been awake for 24 hours while driving a shift for Uber in his van. Afterwards, he took his wife to work before driving home and falling asleep with his children still in the vehicle.Authorities responded to the trailer park where Thigpen lived and found the three children unresponsive in the trailer, the reported.Thigpen originally told police that his kids had been sleeping in a room in the trailer when the air conditioner lost power, causing the room's temperature to increase to a dangerous level, which prosecutors later found to be a lie.In a second interview, Thigpen confessed to leaving the children in the van.'The worst aspect of it is that Mr. Thigpen did not tell the truth immediately when he found he left the children in the car,' said Judge Tyler Gill during the sentencing hearing.'This is a perplexing situation and probably the saddest guilty plea I've ever taken.'A man who said he was Thigpen's father at the sentencing hearing said that it has been 'a few rough years' for the family, according to the Bowling Green Daily News.Thigpen pleaded guilty to a count of second-degree manslaughter and two counts of first-degree assault.'The nature of this offense call out for this sentence,' Gill said.We've got to protect our children, you can't live by accident....(Thigpen) shouldn't have been left with these kids after being up for 24 hours. This was just a tragedy waiting to happen.;
8 Spring Home Maintenance Projects That Will Save You Money
When we talk about money-saving home maintenance projects, we often focus on winter. After all, heating a home is expensive, and we'll do whatever we can to reduce the winter bills.But many projects better suited for warmer weather can save you money, too. Here are eight projects to tackle this spring:1. Clean the refrigerator and air conditioner coils. Your fridge and air conditioner work in nearly the same way -- by exchanging heat through a system of coils. When those coils are dirty and dusty, they can't exchange heat as efficiently, so the system has to run harder and longer to have the same cooling effect.Luckily, cleaning these coils is simple. Just take a vacuum hose to the coils on the back of your fridge. For an outside air conditioner unit, you'll need to disassemble the casing (making sure the power to the unit is off first), and clean using canned air and/or a stiff brush and spray bottle.2. Schedule routine heating, ventilation and air conditioning maintenance. Yes, it costs money to get an HVAC professional to look over your system. But routine maintenance costs much less than major fixes down the road. So call and schedule your HVAC maintenance now. To save even more, check websites such as Groupon, Amazon Local and Angie's List for deals with local HVAC companies.3. Inspect and repair your roof. Spring is the time to get out on the roof to check for ice, hail or water damage from winter. Repairing minor damage can be a quick do-it-yourself fix, and staying on top of your roof's condition (no pun intended) can save you money by avoiding water damage later on.4. Clean gutters. This can be a Saturday-long spring chore for many, but it's important, especially if you live in an area with April showers.Water doesn't properly pass through clogged gutters. And that means more water gets near the foundation of your home. This may not cause immediate problems, but over time, too much water near the foundation can cause damage and weakening, which are expensive problems to fix later.5. Clean the dryer vent. Just like your refrigerator doesn't work properly with dusty coils, your dryer is less efficient with a lint-filled vent. Even if you clean the lint trap before every load of laundry, you'll still get some lint in the vent hose, which builds up over time.To clean the vent, just remove the vent hose from the back of the dryer and vacuum it well. Then, remove the vent cover on the outside of your home, and vacuum it from that side, too.6. Check the washing machine hoses. Over time, washing machine hoses can crack, which can cause leaks. Sometimes, these inconspicuous leaks go on for weeks or months unnoticed, usually because the washer is pushed back into a corner. This can cause mold problems, water damage and more.So while you've got the dryer pulled out to clean the vent, pull out the washer, too. Check that the hoses are still flexible, and they show no signs of cracking. If they do look worn or cracked, just replace them. It's an easy fix!7. Re-caulk windows and doors. You might have caulked your doors and windows before the winter chill set in. Unfortunately, even the best caulk can harden, crack and shrink when it's cold outside.So check your windows and doors, and replace as needed. Keeping the hot air out during the summer is just as important as keeping it in during the winter.8. Plant trees in strategic locations. As you think about landscaping this spring, consider planting a new tree or two. Mother Nature will certainly thank you, and your heating and cooling bills might, too.If your house gets hit with a lot of sun during the day -- which causes the inside to heat up -- plant a fast-growing deciduous tree or two on the west, east or northwest side of your home for cooling shade.And if you noticed wind whistling through the cracks of your home over the winter, an evergreen windbreak on the windiest side of your home might do the trick and block the wind.Before you plant, make sure you understand how large a tree will grow when it reaches maturity, so you avoid potential costly issues from a tree planted too close to your home.

How to Save Money on a Portable Air Conditioning Unit
Before we go into any detail about saving money on a portable air conditioning unit, you need to ask yourself whether you need a portable air conditioner in the first place. If you are not always in your room or office and are always moving around, then a portable air conditioner will be useful to you.If you really need to get a portable air conditioner, then there are many ways to save money on it. Now let us discuss them in more details:1.Choose the right brand. There are many brands offering portable air conditioners. Portable conditioners from premium brands will definitely cost more than the other brands. It is just like buying a Mercedes car. So if you find a lesser known brand which is offering 30% cheaper, do not be discouraged to buy it.2.Do not be influenced by the sales pitch. Once you have done your research and decided on which brand to buy, don't change your mind. Do not be influenced by what the salesman says. Do your research and make sure that you get the right deal.3.Choose the right type of unit. Portable air conditioners have different specifications. A unit with higher specs will cost more than the others. Therefore, it is important to find out what you really need and ignore all the advanced specifications.4.Shop at the right place. This is important as shopping at the right place will prevent you from paying unnecessary fees. Some shops have items that cost a lot more than the others. Larger chain stores sell more expensive items because they need to cover their employment cost, rental and maintenance cost. You can get the same item at a much cheaper rate if you take your time to visit other stores. So do your research to make sure that you know what you are paying for. Internet is a great place to do your research. Visit forums and blogs to read about the best places to buy portable air conditioners.Before you buy from any store, make sure that the store is reputable and is willing to honor returns if the unit is faulty. Most portable units come with a warranty, so remember to check this out with the provider. Also, ask to test the portable unit on the spot so as to ensure that it is working fine before you bring it home.
I Am Trying to Determine What Size Central Air Conditioner I Need for My Home?
answer is very simple, multiply the area with the height of the rooms and divide that by 1000. in your case it will be 3265 * 10 ( assuming 10 feet height of the room ) comes out to 32650 divide this by 1000 it comes out to 32 ton for the whole house not 3 to 3,5 ton. 3 ton ac is suitable for 300 square feet room only. Install AC room wise following the above calculation and you will benefit in this. Read more on calculations in the following link1. Central Air conditioner VS window air conditioners.?Window units are good for enclosed spaces where the cold air can be retained. If you have them installed in an open floor plan, the compressors will run almost 24/7 because the thermostat will almost never see the room temperature lowered to its setting. Window units are noisy as the circulating fan and most likely the compressor in your situation will run 24/7. Yes, today's window units are more efficient, but not as efficient as central units. Window units have SEERS around 10. And they may not have the volume of airflow you might need. A 2 ton window unit needs 240vac. So if you are going to rely on 120 vac, you wo not get enough capacity as these units have lower BTU capacity. So they will run 24/7 and you will be seeing a high electric bill. A 2 ton window unit from Frigidaire runs 2.6kw or about 26c per hr at 10c per kw (includes the compressor and fan load). You might do just as good with two units and a fan or two.2. Comfort Maker Central Air Conditioner - what do you think of this brand? Is it Crap or Good?I am not familiar with the name either. There are "assemblers" who look for a good buy on over run production on say, copeland compressors, fasco motors, and so on. They match them all together and make a unit of them. Now consider that Trane or Carrier engineer their units and make their own compressors and coils3. what's wrong with my (central) air conditioner?The bushings interior the motor are drying out.close the ability off,take the panel off and spray wd-40 on the decrease component to the shaft and manually spin it.placed the panel back on and initiate it up and you are able to nicely be waiting to purchase some extra time till finally you replace the motor. good success. incredibly saturate it with wd-40 and it will in all threat paintings4. My central air conditioner is pouring water out the bottom when the unit is on and cooling...?Your AC has a main drain, which usually is plumbed into the drain system of the house, and by code there should be also a pan under the unit, with a pipe from the pan going to the outside of the house. The main drain will clog up with goopy low life like algae or slime mold, and it will stop condensate from being able to go down the drain. Now the unit overflows into the secondary, which is the pan and pipe.
