If you are using this inside your home with central air running do you have to vent it to an outside window?


Yes, it must be vented to the outside, even if you're using central AC, too. The reason being is if you don't vent it to the outside, the hot air and humidity that normally goes thru the duct and out the window, will stay in the house and your Central AC will have to run longer and harder to overcome this rise in heat and humidity. In addition, the room that the portable AC is in, will get extremely hot & humid.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

The unit works as of right now...but there is a smell of something burning


Quite often, if you smell like a plastic burning smell, one of the capacitors is faulty, and should be checked immediately. Quite often the compressor start capacitor, will get hot and start to melt. Have it checked by qualified technician or electrician, as they are dangerous and can give a fatal shock if not experienced with handling them, even when power is shut off. $20-$30 part, and 1/2hr. labor should take care of it. The cover on roof unit, has to be removed to access the capacitors, so watch for bees, wasps, when you do so. Make sure power is off at breaker panel.

When we turn on the central air there is a strong burning smell...like burnt toast but way stronger. IS it safe to remian in the house?


Is your central air furnace or electric heat. Electric furnace sometimes have electric strip sequencer stick in the closed positions leaving on one strip of the electric heat. Get a service tech as soon as possible to check this out. Any smells from a central unit need to be teken care of promptly. TURN OFF unit you have it checked for your safety. Rus

Fan running constantly in the house


Check t-stat and make sure fan is set to "Auto", that might be why fan is running all the time, or it could be a fan relay that is stuck closed. It sounds like you A/C is over charged or you have a bad high pressure switch, this was a common problem with this manufacture especially in the heat mode.

Fan is still running in house constantly


Check your wall thermostat to make sure the "fan" switch is in the "auto" position. If it is set at the "on" position, the indoor fan WILL run continuously. Not really enough info as to what type of split system you have. Gas? Electric? Heat pump? Oil? Wood? Newspapers? See what I mean? Is it variable speed? Do you have a "special" thermostat for certain operations? Does your system incorperate inverter technology?

Boiler bangs when hot water used


You need to install a "water hammer arrestor" they can be found at any local plumbing supply house.

If you can find one with "Shark bite" fittings already installed then there will be no need for soldering or special tools other than a tubing cutter.

Hi! I have a problem with an oil heating system! When I turn it on, it heat for 5 mins then stops. I have changed out the circulation pump as I thought that this was the problem. The pipes in the boiler...


you may have many probs... 1 a poir boiler combustion. (not boiling the water) or just warming it up so it's not hot...that would mean your temperature sensor is broken or you have probs with the actual combustion process.. This could be an unsafe situation ..i would call a heating specialist right away.

20 year old central a/c heater not working


Check your thermostat and mode selector setting, thermostat setting should be set at warmer and mode selector setting should be at low heat or hight this is applicable for manual unit.
If it is a remote control just set the remote to heat mode.
