â¢ Other Questions
Can the aluminum fins of a outdoor central air conditioner be replaced?
It is not economically practical to try to replace the fins. They are press fitted onto the copper piping during the assembly process.
The coil itself can be replaced but it is an expensive undertaking. Depending on the age and condition of your unit, it may be wiser to consider replacing the condensor unit entirely. A small amount of fin lose will not appreciably hurt the unit, but it does decrease the amount of heat transfer that takes place and it increases the energy used.
You may also want to consider putting a chicken wire barrier around the unit to prevent the dog from repeating the unwanted behavior.

What is the tube covered in black foam that comes out of a central air conditioner? and to add to what has been said, if there is moisture dripping it means humid air is condensing on the cold refrigerant line. That is an indication the compressor is working.
There may be ice blocking the coils inside the unit where the blower is, the fan unit inside the garage or closet in the house or wherever. The moisture condenses on the coils then freezes preventing air from blowing through and becoming cool. You didn't say this was happening but just in case
Is our central air conditioner working properly?
One other thing that can mess up a program is if the Humidistat is set too high. If your house has one it will be separate from the thermostat. The best setting is to set it at it's lowest setting which is just immediately after turning it on and backing it down to just before turning the dial off.
Another thing you can look at is one of a couple of capacitors might have gone bad. Its just a matter of finding which one. They can cause the problems you are experiencing now.
Contact your builder and/or the contractor who installed the Unit and stand on his eyelids until he or they fix it!
Should I get my central air conditioner serviced now, or wait until next spring?
You can wait till fall.
if you have a window type then i believe you can do it yourself, all you need is nice water supply, brush, detergent and poly-bags to wrap electrical parts. or for time being till fall comes keep the intake filter clean and then get it services. You might get some video on youtube to service a/c its easy thing.
Wattage for small central air?
OMG your roomie is a huge dumbasss. Tell him that when he sets the thing down to 55F it WILL NOT cool faster or colder.
That setting only lengthens run time and places a huge load on the system. Here's what you can do: without him watching, take the cover off the thermostat, then the midbase. The sub-base should still be screwed to the wall.
use a very small screw and screw it in the small slot so that the thermostat cannot be set below,. say, 65F. Either that or your roomie gets to pay the power bill from now on.

my central air conditioner will not come on, what do i do?
When did you turn it on initially?
Was it really cold outside? If it was, you may have fried the compressor. Call an HVAC contractor to look at it.
However, go outside and see if there is a shutoff box. It would be a box between the outside unit and the house on the electrical line. Open this up and make sure that the shut-off is intact.
If you are missing the plug, it won't work.
Are Tempstar central air units any good? My installer is recommending a R2A3 unit.
that unit is a 13 seer. It's not the best on the market but it's not the worst either. remember.
the best AC money can buy is worthless if it's not sized and installed properly. You have to look at the installers just as much as the product, if not more.
what's wrong with my (central) air conditioner?
Sounds like it's low on freon, however if it's low on freon then you have a leak somewhere because those systems are not just suppose to go low. Your best bet is to call a local company and have a service guy come out. They can tell you more then any of us on here.
We have central air conditioner, do we need dehumidifier.
I live in South Carolina - this summer has been very humid and I think more rain than usual. When I walk in my house it smells of mold or wet old dog like smell.
I have a master's in cleaning (LOL) so it's not that. .I am thinking I need a de-humidifier.
Our house has a crawl space but everything seems dry underneath.any suggestions/help? Thank you in advance :-)
About central air conditioner?
Heat pumps do very well in Southern California. The only things you really need to weigh are 1. The initial installation cost, and 2.
The price difference in paying for the electric to run the heat pump, or the gas to run the furnace. That just requires a little homework. Either way, you'll get a very efficient unit compared to your 30 year old antique.
P.S. check with the Gas & Electric companies in your area for possible rebates.
That might also factor in to your decision. Good luck.
Why won't my Air conditioner won't turn on?
The coolant may have leaked and the device may be fitted with some sort of cutout. You need to take it apart and look for clues. Do you have an operator's manual?
If you're not confident/competant in this field it would be best to have the appliance serviced under a maintenance contract and to have it serviced each year.
i just built a new home with forced air have returns in all rooms except basement?
25 years in HVAC and have never seen or heard of returns in every room.
If you have supply air in the basement then just leave the basement door open or put a register in the door as a return. This is assuming your furnace is upstairs. If the furnace is in the basement, splice a return on to one of the return ducts
My central air conditioner outside unit fan is not working.

is it bad to run an air conditioner continuous?
Two things. 1.
If you have a small thermometer - place it 1/2 way into an outlet register, closest to the top of the furnace/air handler. It should read 45 to 52 degrees. If it does not - shut the unit off for 30 minutes but leave the fan in the ON position.
2. Then start the outside unit again, (lower the stat 3 degrees) and watch the thermometer again. If there is a big difference, (if it shows colder when you restart the outside unit) then the unit may be low on freon and it is icing up from running too long on low freon?
My air conditioner isnt working properly?
Wrong section. This place is only about maintenance and repairs for automobiles.
However, I would guess that the compressor in your AC is stuck and either needs to be replaced or to have an add-on capacitor installed to help get it started. You're just going to have to call a repairman, as messing around inside a home air conditioner can be dangerous if you touch the wrong wires.
who knows about air conditioners?
I'm in Florida and my house MIGHT get to 70 at night if I ran the unit non-stop, and the unit is brand new. Personally I don't see the need to make any house colder than 75. It's just a waste of energy.
Have the A/C checked by a tech. Check your filter. Check all potential sources of air leaks.
See how much insulation your house has. Are there rooms where you can shut off air flow to increase cool air to the rest of the house?
Power Bill: Which costs more to run/use for 30 days?
The central air conditioner will cost many times more to operate than the ceiling fan - about 1 to 2 cents per hour for the fan, compared to at least 20 cents per hour for the air conditioning system, depending on its size (btu's or tons_ and its SEER (efficiency rating). The idea of the ceiling fan is to keep the air moving, thus evening the temperature throughout the area, minimizing the variation in temperature between the a/c cycling off, on, off, and to provide a more comfortable feeling at a somewhat higher temperature. So, use both.
Use the ceiling fan(s) to reduce the need for the a/c, then raise the a/c temperature as high as you can and still be comfortable.
I have a house without an attic. Is there a kind of central air conditioner I can install?
hello, i have worked in the a/c field for 4 years. went to school for another 2. so there is always alternatives.
you can install window a/c units in each room that needs a/c. every 400 to 500 sq. ft.
is 1 ton of cooling which is 12,000 btu/h. you need to look on the boxes that the window units come and and they will say how many btu/h they can handle. if u need more info just go to home depot and ask some one in the hvac/plumbing department for help
When is the cheapest time to get an air conditioner installed?
Get at least 3 quotes and let them know you are checking prices and value for what they are offering. Negotiate. you know.
"I see the value but "xyz" is cheaper and I'm on a limited budget. Are you aware of any rebates? Don't jump at the first quote given and ask if there is another way you might be able to save.
i. e. We paid cash on a $3,500.
00 quote and got a $500. 00 discount. Do you offer interest free financing like Home Depot and Lowe's?
Most definitely don't do business with a company who has a bad reputation
My central air conditioner seems to cycle on and off a lot.
No, it is not incorrect. I artwork interior the seventh circle of hell.
The a/c is desperate at seventy 4 ranges and whilst it particularly is ninety 8 ranges exterior with 89% humidity, it particularly is warmer than hell interior the workplace. I sweat like a hog on a each and daily foundation. God forbid I placed on something it is not a hundred% cotton because of the fact i would be depressing all day.
i might extremely freeze my ya-ya's off and function my nips poking suitable out of my blouse any day of the week. Are you adult males hiring?
Plug on air conditioner melted and burned black.
Can we replace the plug/cord- or trash the whole unit?
The unit is defective if it trips the breaker, and draws so much current as to overheat its cord or plug. You're lucky you didn't have a house fire.
Repeated tripping of breakers is a serious warning! Buy a new air conditioner, and make sure that the old one is never put into use again. By the way, air conditioners must be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way that does not allow the refrigerant to escape into the atmosphere.
