What Is the Ideal SEER Rating for Heating/air Conditioning Unit for a 3,600 Sq.' House?

I actually work for an HVAC company. In the past we would sell a 10 SEER however, most of the companies have gotten rid of the 10 SEER because it is not as energy effeciant. You should get a whole bunch of different estimates and pick the brains of the people who come out to you since this is going to be a huge purchase. Chances are you are going to want a 13 SEER and if you can add an energy saver package on it. Although it may cost you an extra grand over the coarse of the 10 years the unit should last you you will save more than that in your energy bills. Also try to go with a company that offers an 10-20 year warantee from the manufacturer on the compressor and/or heat exchanger. Also remember that this is considered a Capital Improvement on your home. Some companies will charge tax to un-knowing people and pocket that extra cash. You should get a certificate of capital improvement to take off on your taxes next year. Good luck

1. Why is it bad to run the air conditioning constantly rather than intermittently for the same amount of time?

There is an evaprator in your funace that removes heat from the air and takes it outside (thats what an airconditioner does) If that evaporator stay cold for extended periods of time, the moisture in the air will freeze and cover the evaporator with ice. When this happens, air will not circulate and cool the house, if the house does not cool, the thermostat will keep the AC running, keeping the ice frozen....I am sure you see the cycle. All you need to do is set your thernmostat at a reasonable temp and let it do the work.

2. My central air conditioning fan doesnt run?

sounds like either the fan died or the relay died

3. Is my landlord obligated to install Air Conditioning in NY?

I believe there has to be heat provided, but not AC. You are lucky your landlord is willing to put anything towards the cost- he does not have to. Most LL would say you should've done your due diligence and you would be out of luck.

4. Where can I find an inexpensive Mercedes air conditioning hose?

Talk about giving you a wallet flush, Damn!...if you paid for a repair that did not fix the problem, bring it back and demand they refund the $$$ or fix it. Sounds like they are just guessing... Based on what you said...best to find a reputable repair shop that employs experienced techs instead of parts replacers.

7. How Much Does a Central Air Conditioning Repair Cost in AZ?

Wondering how much it costs to repair a central air conditioner in Arizona? The average cost to repair a central air conditioner in the Phoenix area is $350. But this is one question where the average does not give you an accurate idea of what you will actually pay. Why's that, you ask? Well, there are multiple factors that determine an air conditioner repair cost. These cost factors include... The type of repair you need The type of warranty you have The condition of your AC Let's explore those cost factors in more detail. Cost factor #1: The type of repair you need When you take your car to a mechanic, you know there's a wide range of repairs your car might need, from a simple oil change to a complex transmission fix. It's the same with air conditioners: some repairs are easy to fix and inexpensive; others are complicated and pricey. So you can see why looking at an average cost is not very helpful. There are some repairs that only cost $75-$200 and there are others that exceed $1,000. To give you a better idea of what things cost, we've listed some common air conditioner repairs with their associated expense: Some of these AC repairs are pretty pricey, right? Well, luckily, some of those parts and sometimes labor is covered under your warranty... Cost factor #2: The type of warranty you have A valid warranty will reduce the amount of money you will pay for an AC repair. Most major-brand air conditioners come with a 10-year manufacturer warranty that covers essential parts like: The compressor (one of the most expensive parts on an AC) In addition to manufacturer parts warranties, your a/c contractor probably offers a labor warranty as well. For example, if your AC was installed less than a year ago, there's a good chance that the company that installed it will repair or replace a faulty part at little or no charge. However, warranties need to be valid for you to claim the benefits. What makes an HVAC warranty invalid? They will be able to look up the manufacturer warranty and inspect your system to help you gauge if you are warranty is still valid. They will also be able to inform you if you qualify for a labor warranty. If you are curious about what your manufacturer parts warranty covers, you can visit the manufacturer's website and look up the corresponding warranty to your AC model. Cost factor #3: The condition of your AC How old is your air conditioner? Has it been well-cared for? Ask yourself those questions when you face an AC repair. Here's why: if your air conditioner is 10-12 years old, it's nearing the end of its life. So it may be more cost-effective in the long run to replace it instead of just repairing it. Your HVAC contractor will help you determine whether to replace or repair your AC, so that's why it's important to choose a trustworthy contractor. Who you choose to repair your AC greatly influences what you will end up paying for a repair. First, you should become familiar with how your contractor charges for their services. Here are some terms to be familiar with: Service call charge: This is what you will pay just to have a professional visit your home and inspect your system. Service call charges usually range anywhere from $50-$150 . Most times if you do need a repair, the company will not charge you for a service call charge, if you are purchasing their suggested repair. Flat-rate pricing vs. hourly pricing: Some contractors price their repairs based on the whole project cost (flat-rate); others charge by the hour parts (hourly pricing). Knowing a contractor's pricing method up front can give you a good estimate of what you will pay for the project. Most importantly, you will want to choose a quality contractor. A good AC repair company will do commendable work, which will make your AC last longer and run efficiently. So how can you tell if a contractor is good? Good contractors will satisfy their customers. You can read customer service reviews on websites like Better Business Bureau (BBB), Review Buzz, Facebook, Google and Yelp. Need a trustworthy AC contractor in the Phoenix metro area?

And for $20, why not replace it. Of course, disconnect the condenser before working on it. You probably have a dual capacitor, short out the terminals with each other to dissipate any stored charge. They can pack a punch. Check an appliance parts store or even places like Home Depot if you need one today. Just match the values.4. Is central air conditioning more efficient than window units?Central air conditioning is overall more efficient than a window unit. The main benefits are a more efficient fan, a more efficient chiller compressor, and more advanced energy-saving features. You really should not have more than 10% duct losses in a typical office building. There are also several different kinds of central air conditioning. Full fresh air AC is not very efficient, however when used as a displacement ventilation system with economisers it can be extremely efficient. Then you have fan coils or chilled beams, where a small amount of unconditioned air is supplied to a room equipped to a fan coil or chilled beam which uses chilled water to deliver cooling, and the air is either passively or actively moved around in the room, that also can be really efficient. You also have mixed-mode AC where the chiller is only used in peak cooling cases, otherwise people are free to open windows to passively cool down rooms. Finally you also have night ventilation, where you use the cool night air to completely chill down the building and rely on the structure's thermal inertia to maintain that temperature well into the day.None of these energy-saving features are possible with window units. Is central air conditioning more efficient than window units?5. How do I get rid of foul odor in vehicle air conditioning?air freshiinger6. home Air Conditioning prob, no one is able to repair my air conditioning and they are giving ridiculous prices?$80 for 2 hrs is not bad as many companies charge a $75 diagnostics charge that only includes 1 hr. If it was low on refrigerant (would explain the not cooling well) then there is a leak. The days of just topping the unit off are over as we now know that R-22 depletes the stratospheric level of the ozone and a leak needs to be repaired. I would imagine that after 2hrs time all the easy find leaks were over and needed to do a more thou leak testing. More and more companies are turning to flat rate billing. Which would explain the $500 leach search. In most of the flat rate leak search prices it is including a pump down or recovery of the refrigerant with only a trace gases left then pressurized with high pressure nitrogen then leach searched with a special electronic leak detector. this price usually includes a guarantee, nitrogen, solder and isolation if required, filter dryer, basic leak repair and refrigerant recharge. Most likely he cannot give you a price for complete repair because he has not pinpointed the leak yet and depending on where that leak is major minor or weather to its repairable or replacement part would be answered after the leak was found. For example a leaking flair fitting would be considered minor, leak in fin-tube of the evaporator coil would most likely be a replacement part. I am not trying to defend the guy as I would have to see the bill and be there to evaluate the system myself but just an in site to how the industry is now operating. It is suppose to simplify so you will know how much you are going to have to pay for each step or level of diagnosis compared to somebody just working and paying by the hour. it makes even playing field if a tech is slow or fast you will pay the agreed price weather it takes an hr or a week to find that leak. Also I am hoping you paid the service fee because many company's today are using a black list for customers known for not paying and sharing that information between them. Remember when its hot outside the companies are busy and charge more when demand is high, best time of year to have system serviced is spring and fall before its hot or cold to have it checked and find problems before they start at the "off time" of year when they are not as busy. Keep in mind that companies that have full page phone book adds are generally more expensive as some of those adds can cost $30,000 per year. That is a lot fo overhead they have to overcome. Check with the Better Business Beau, and ask around your area for who your friends or neighbors recommend. I recommend using a company that employs N.A.T.E. generally the leak would have to he on the high side of the systems and generally at a low point to show up, example small leak at the bottom of condensing coil show large oil spots where a leak at the evaporator coil may show nothing at all and be a large leak. Furthermore Freon is a brand name registered trademark of Dupont Refrigerant is what the systems use more specifically R-22 for residential older systems and R410A for newer systems. The system does not use compressor oil. it uses refrigerant oil specifically for R-22 systems use a mineral oil or Alkylbenzene and R410a systems use Polyol Ester (POE)
