Thinking About Air Conditioning? If You're Gonna Do It, Do It Right.

Residential air conditioners can be bad for the environment if they are overused, but also because they can leak ozone-depleting refrigerants if they are installed or disposed of improperly. But as global warming takes its toll, more and more of us are expected to resort to air conditioning to make our living conditions tolerable during more frequent and more intense summer heat waves. In Quebec, the demand for residential air conditioners is expected to rise by 20 per cent between now and 2020 and by 105 per cent by 2050, according to Quebec's professional organization for certified air conditioner installers, the Corporation des entreprises de traitement de l'air et du froid. That organization is calling on consumers to be careful where they buy their air conditioners and to whom they entrust their installation."Consumers should be prudent and ensure that these appliances are installed and function properly. An air conditioner that is poorly installed can leak refrigerant and will perform badly," said Robert Thiverge, president of CETAF, in a recent news release.Because refrigerants are odorless and colourless, it is hard for residents to know if their conditioner is leaking. Wall models sold in big box stores are apparently at highest risk for leakage. There are strict standards for air conditioner installation and Quebec's building code requires that only certified professionals install them. Consumers are encouraged to ask to see a license before allowing anyone to install an air conditioner in their home.For more information, contact CETAF at 514-735-1131 or by e-mail at

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.

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
