Can You Turn an Air Conditioner on It's Side and Use It Lengthwise??

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!!! The oil in the com presser needs to be level . Surely it's a bummer that the A/C wont fit in the window unless ya stand it up. Trust me..if you want that A/C to work...Do not turn it on it's side. Good Luck!

1. Can I run my window unit air conditioner in the winter? (live in texas, rarely drops below 32 at night))?

You can run it all you want, wont hurt any, it would however be better if you could just open window up but thats just commonsense

2. how do you stop an air conditioner from icing up?

Mine does the same thing! At night only though. I was wondering this same thing! I fall asleep and it's fine and when I wake not blowing much air out and it is warm air....and i am burning up! Sorry I can not help but thanks for posting this question! I hope someone knows the answer! After reading the previous answer.....what if you only have 2 settings? Cool and Fan? It is too hot for fan......So, what if it's on cool? How can we stop it from freezing?

3. i put freon in my cars air conditioner but it still wont work can anyone help?

you could have a failed clutch a failed low pressure switch, a failed compressor clutch, a blown fuse to that system. i would take it back and have them fix it

4. Should I cover or protect the air conditioner (AC) unit during winter?

I noticed some of my neighbors, here in Florida, have a light weight screen covering their air conditioner units outside. Is this necessary?

5. Why don't my car radio and air conditioner work?

they prettty much answered it, its most likely a fuse, but itd be cheaper to get it checked at a cheap car audio guy im sure hed charge a lot less

6. Can you recharge your air conditioner, or does it have to be done by a professional.?


7. Why is my Air Conditioner turning on, then immediately turning off?

The trip of the outside unit is due to ( start / run ) relay out of order

8. Why does an air conditioner sometimes take so much time to cool a room?

In one word "capacity".Capacity" in relation to air conditioners is a measure of how fast they can transfer heat from inside the room to outside.Every room presents a "heat load" This is a combination of:The size of the roomThe temperature difference between inside the room versus outside the roomThe type of insulation / insulating materials between the room and outside the roomThe orientation of the room with respect to the sunThe number and type of windows and window dressings (awnings / curtains etc)The number of occupantsOther sources of heat including lights, devices such as televisions, computersAs your air conditioner extracts heat from the room, additional heat is being added to the room both from outside the room and from sources of heat within the room.If your room is eventually cooling down but takes a long time, that suggests that the capacity of the air conditioner is greater than the heat load, but not by much. In other words, you have little spare capacity.Your options to improve the situation are:Reduce the room's heat load. Things like covering windows with external shade, internal thermal curtains, better ceiling insulation etc. Ensure that the air conditioner is able to run effectively, with as much capacity as possible. Things like ensuring the indoor units filters are clean, ensuring both the indoor and outdoor coils are clean, checking that indoor and outdoor fans are all operational.If you have done everything possible to reduce the heat load and maximise the effectiveness of your air conditioner and it still takes too long to cool your room, another option is to turn it on earlier, so there is less heat to remove from the room, or leave it on at a higher setpoint, again to reduce the amount of heat the air conditioner has to remove before you feel comfortable. The last option is to replace your air conditioner with a unit with a greater cooling capacity. Obviously this is the most expensive option. It is also the reason why when choosing an air conditioner in the first place, getting the correct capacity is so important. Professionals will perform a heat load calculation to work out the capacity of cooling required. As you can see, getting this right is very important to avoid these sorts of situations from occurring in the first place.Why does an air conditioner sometimes take so much time to cool a room?.

Saving a Bundle on Air Conditioning
Heating and cooling costs make up 56 percent of the energy bill of the typical American household. And, now that we're in the heat of summer, it's a good time to think about reducing the amount we spend on our air conditioners, to save some cold, hard cash.On The Early Show Tuesday, consumer correspondent Susan Koeppen shared energy efficiency pointers to help your bottom line. Koeppen's words of wisdom!:CENTRAL AIR Trending News Google Cloud Outage Missing Connecticut Mom Virginia Beach Shooting Protester Interrupts Harris Even if your unit is only 10 years old, you may save 20 - 40 percent of your cooling energy costs by replacing it with a newer, more efficient model.Proper sizing and installation are key elements in determining air conditioner efficiency. Too large a unit won't adequately remove humidity. Too small a unit won't be able to attain a comfortable temperature on the hottest days. Improper unit location, lack of insulation, and improper duct installation can greatly diminish efficiency.If you have a central air unit, make sure the condenser is located in a shady spot and has room to dispose of the heated air it removes from your house. Don't crowd it with shrubs or anything else. When buying a central air conditioning system, make sure the SEER number (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) is 13 or better (14 in warmer climates). The higher the SEER number, the more efficient the system, and as we know, a less efficient system will cost you more to run (get this: upgrading from SEER 9 to SEER 13, power consumption is reduced by 30 percent. It's claimed that this can result in an energy savings valued at up to $300 per year.Also, (and this goes for window units too), perform regular maintenance on your air conditioning unit. Replace the filter monthly during the cooling season, and have a professional service your system at the beginning of each cooling season.Finally, check with your state to see if it has any incentive programs for you to buy a more efficient unit.WINDOW UNITS It's all about finding an EnergyStar unit (which means that it's at least 10 percent more energy efficient than the minimum federal government standards).You'll then want to figure out what size AC you need -- that is, how many BTUs you need, and that's pretty easy to figure out. According to the Department of Energy, you'll need about 20 BTUs per square foot of a room. If you get something smaller, you're not going to be able to cool the room appropriately, and you're going to strain the heck out of your AC; if you get an AC that's too big, you're going to be wasting energy and throw money right out the window.GET A CEILING FANUtilize fans as much as possible. If the temperature is just slightly uncomfortable, consider using an oscillating fan, or ceiling fan if you have one. Just a slight breeze or circulation caused by fans can make it feel a few degrees cooler. Even the most power-hungry fan costs less than $10 a month to use if you keep it on 12 hours a day. Good fans make it possible for you to raise your thermostat setting and save on air-conditioning costs. Ceiling fans will push air down toward the floor, circulating the air in your house and helping to cool it more efficiently than running the air conditioner by itself. INSTALL A PROGRAMMABLE THERMOSTATThis varies the temperature according to when you're home, and can help you save 10 - 20 percent on your energy bill. Set it for a lower temperature when you're home. If you'll be gone for more than a few hours, it makes sense to set the air conditioning at a higher temperature while you're gone. Use a programmable thermostat that adjusts your air conditioner's setting automatically. That enables you to stop cooling things down so much when nobody's home for long stretches of time, or at night when it's cooler outside. You can program the thermostat to increase the comfort level in your home shortly before you wake up or return home from work.The Early Show's resident veteriinarian, Dr. Debbye Turner, says it's OK to turn the AC off when your pet is home alone. She says that, if your pet is perfectly healthy, you can let the temperature reach up to 80 degrees, but if your dog is a little sicker or has breathing problems, you'll want to lower that to keep him or her healthy and safe. CLOSE DRAPES OR SHADES ON THE SUNNY SIDE OF YOUR HOUSETypically, the most sunny parts of your house are the south and west; the sun has intense warming effects, and when it's allowed to enter a window without the heat being able to escape, it will act like a greenhouse. Keep as much direct sunlight out as possible to keep your home a few degrees cooler. TURN OFF THE LIGHTS WHEN THEY'RE NOT IN USE AND CLOSE DOORS leading TO UNUSED ROOMSStandard incandescent bulbs generate a good deal of heat. Having lights on when it's not necessary just increases the temperature in the house. Consider switching to CFL bulbs, which run cool, and also consume less electricity. SEAL UP AIR LEAKS IN YOUR HOUSEJust as cold air can find its way into your house in the winter, hot air does the same thing during the summer. Caulk or seal places where utilities come into your home (plumbing, electricity, dryer vents, etc.). Fill gaps around chimneys, and weather-strip around drafty windows and doors.MMVIII, CBS Interactive Inc. All Rights Reserved
