How Do I Interpret a Central Air Conditioner Label?

To add to this answer, air conditioners, motors and welders follow different rules than what is considered conventional. The MCA (minimum circuit ampacity) is what you size your wire by. The maximum/minimum fuse or breaker is what you can size your overcurrent (fuses or circuit breakers) by. So this unit, having a 19A MCA, can be wired with #12cu wire, and must be fused or breakered at 25 or 30A. YES, I AM saying you can put #12 wire on a 30A breaker.

1. Trying to diagnose my moms central air conditioner problem!?

those guy are idiots you need your condenser fan replaced and maybe the dual cap also clean the condenser coils fans run on 220 your better off replacing but times are tuff about $300 plus refrigerant gl

2. My central air conditioner outside unit fan is not running. Please help.?

The first thing to check on an outside unit that has stopped operating, is the breaker supplying power to it. It 'should' have its own switch/breaker right there beside it, mounted to the side of the home. You can also check the circuit box, where the feed connects in it. If both of those are good, then the motor may have quit on the unit, or one of the switches gone bad. A service call would be in order at that point. Good Luck

3. My central air conditioner is pouring water out the bottom when the unit is on and cooling...?

All i will tell you is that it's a 3 1/2 ton unit. Unless it's high efficiency the amp draw on the compressor and condenser fan motor should be practically all different 3 1/2 ton models

4. Central Air Conditioner stopped working?

Maybe your Thermostat is not working properly, therefore it shut off the main unit but wo not turn it back on after it warms up inside again

5. How much $$ should a new home central air conditioner (4 tons) cost - installed? And how long should it last?

Price is going to determine which part of the country you live in, quality of the unit and how "greedy" the HVAC company is. My Top model 14 seer 4 ton unit in WI is about 2200.00 and you should be able to get anywhere from 15 years out of it. Call around get estimates and do your research

6. Why does the central air conditioner coil and fins in my furnace leak water to the floor?

Could be the condesate drain pan is cracked, or if it's an older unit, the metal drain pan is rusted through. The dissimilar metals react & rust out the pan. I've seen this many times. Sometimes you can get a replacement pan, but usually you are forced to replace the entire evaporator coil which has the pan integrated onto it. The upside is that the new style pans are plastic, so they will never rust. Access the coil & pour water in the pan & observe where it goes. If you see it running down through the pan & not the drain, time to call a licensed pro, as the refrigerant must be removed from the system to replace the coil, definately not a DIY project! Hope this was helpful, good luck!!

7. Would a central air conditioner system with a motor of 1/8 horsepower be sufficient enough to cool our 600 sq?

AC units are rated in either BTU or Tonnage. For your area 1 1/2 ton or 18,000 BTU should do the job. Generally size air conditioners 400 square feet per 1 Ton of a/c in a moderate to warm climate. In cooling terms, 1 "ton" equals 12,000 BTU. A thumbs down, the information is 100% acurate. Over 30 yrs experience in HVAC, residential, commercial, and industrial.

8. How often should I have my home central Air Conditioner recharged with refrigerant?

Never, unless it developes a leak. You can test the efficiency of your system by doing the following test. You will need 2 good thermometers. Tape 1 across the return air grill. Tape #2 across a room vent. Run A/C for at least 30 mins. You should see a 15 to 20 degree drop in temp. between the return air grill and room vent temps. on a good operating system. For example: Return air temp is 95 degrees- Room vent should be 75 to 80 degrees. This probably does not sound like much of drop to alot of people but it is correct.

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
