My Roommates Think Leaving the Air Conditioning ON All Day Will Use Up LESS Energy Than Leaving It O

Unfortunately there are not really any 'scientific' studies on this. Most of what you will find on the internet are articles with writers opinions. I can understand the argument of letting it run all day will use more energy. Every time the unit turns on it pulls in rush current which is roughly 4 to 5 times as much as the rated full load amperage. This only occurs for a few short seconds when it initailly energizes and is negligable. However I actually agree with the argument to let it run all day based on the build up of heat that occurs if it is off all day. It is not just the house air that is becoming hot and stiff. The interior walls, furniture, cabinets, insulation in the exterior walls, carpet, flooring, etc are all becoming saturated with heat. Pretty much all of those items are made of materials that are some what of an insulator. If you leave the unit off all day once you do get home and turn it on not only is it trying to remove heat form the air, the heat in all of the above stated items has to be removed for it to maintain a normal setpoint. If the unwanted heat was never absorbed into those items in the first place by maintaining a specific set point then it wo not have to run as long overall. It will remove the heat from the air before it has a chance to be absorbed into the materials around the house. One thing that I can get on board with is that you invest in a programable thermostat so that you can set an 'un-occupied' time. Raise this setpoint a few degrees and program it to turn on roughly 30 minutes before anyone gets home. Additionally try to find one with a programable proportional band. What that means is that whatever set point you program you will also set a differential of say 5 degrees. So with a set point of 70' and proportional of 5' it wo not come on until it reaches 75' and it will run until it reaches 70'. This will prevent the short cycling and allow the unit to have longer run times. This will be a benefit to decreasing the number of ON/OFF cycles helping to prolong the life of the equipment and reduce the frequency that unit draws in rush current.

1. My air conditioning will not turn off. The temp is set at 75 the thermostat reads 77

6. how hard is it to replace air conditioning belt on 1998 honda civic?

There should be a diagram of the routing of the belt, the hardest part is getting your hand in to go around the pulleys. If there are two replace both. Pick up a Haynes repair manual it comes in handy

7. How do I know if my outdoor air conditioning unit needs to be replaced, or if it's just the fan motor?

You have someone that knows what they are doing LOOK at the unit
