Question about Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

My appartment does not have cenral AC/heat, it has a GE cooling/heater unit in each room. You can set up low heat or high heat but it continues runing on until you manually stop it when is to hot. Is there a way to set up this units for temperature autocontrol on/off?

    thank you this information is helpful. However, I have experienced that if leave the unit on for a long period, such as at night, the temperature in the room keeps rising no matter what setting I am using, even "low heat". I tried and the room temperature can increase up to 8-9 degrees in two hours. So, I have to get up and turn off the unit manually. I was wondering if this could be avoided by installing something such as an automatic temperature control to the unit? a thermostat that would keep the room temperature constant to a set degree? Thank you.

    Unfortunatelly no. We have tree rooms and a GE unit in each room, but no wall thermostats.

The unit runs all the time because of the fan (ventilation motor)-but it is not working on cooling or heating all the time - The ventilation motor pushes the air from the room through the machine and when the termostat is reading that you set it up for cooler air or warm air it will turn on the air conditioning part or the heating part of the machine-it is very good system actually

    unless you have a thermostat installed in a nearby room it is possible to install a thermostat 

    do you have a thermostat anywhere on the walls in the nearby rooms?

I have a older Carrier heat pump, model 38YKC060. Does anyone know how cold it will continue to work at?


Heat pumps are of little or no value at temps around 40 degrees or below. And if you use the strips it will cost a small fortune if you have relatively high electric rates as most folks do.

I need to know if a mercury thermostat is bad will it allow the ac to come on but not the heater


need to know what thermostat you are referring to
the coolant thermostat has no connection to the ac system
if it is the ac thermostat the it maintains the cabin temperature by activating the ac compressor as required
if you are referring to climate control then that controls the heater flow to keep the ac temperature at a set temperature with the ac compressor operating all the time
so as an answer to you question , check the climate control module

My thermostat is set on 68 degrees and it shows room temperature is 68, but the furnace still kickson, Honeywell said it has a 1 degree difference. so what's the problem then?


Yes there is a one degree tolerance, in fact my heater just kicked on and it is set to 67 and the inside temperature reads 67. It is also a Honeywell.

Cooloing is not coming down from room temperature


The unit needs service. Call a technician! You can:
Check your air filters
Clean outdoor coil by turning off all power at breakers and tstat, clean o.d. coil with water hose
Inspect indoor coil (if you can) for build up or debris
Other than that? May be low on freon. A service tech will cost $ BUT not having the unit service will cost more due to electrical consumption and excessive run times shortening the life of the system.

Only recently my portable heller air conditioner is oosing out buckets of water each night. does it mean it finished and needs replacement,


Portable air conditioners cool the air, and in so doing, dehumidify the air. The "buckets" of water are coming from the humid air in your environment, so you need to do things that will reduce humidity, of be prepared to empty the condensate receptacle fairly often.

Using a small room, closing doors and windows to the room you want cooled, avoiding cooking or heating water, reducing the frequency of people walking into/out of the room and limiting the number of people in the room will all help in reducing, and keeping low, the ambient humidity.

How do I fix my electric heater


  • sounds like the sensor or bulb that tells it to start the blower is defective/ im not familiar with your unit but this seems the most logical answer most furnace will not turn the blower on right away usually 90 seconds after the ignition but will also run longer to exhume any dangerous carbon monoxide. Electricic heaters are different. What type of unit do you have

Why can't I lower my honeywell 8500 below 67 on cool?


With a two story house you have to be aware that cold air flows downwards so any cold air coming from an ac unit will flow downstairs( normally down the stairway) so unless you can close off the down stairs then the up stairs unit will be cooling downstairs as well. Ac units have a thermostat located in the air intake and it cools until the cold air has risen to that point. In effect the space above the ac unit will be hotter than the floor. Knowing how they work ,you can see that the upstairs unit will never reach the set temperature because the cold air is continually heating from the house and will never get to the top thermostat.
So your solutions are
1-- fit controls that restrict the cold air from leaving the upper floor (Doors)
2--don't run the upper ac unit unless you are living up there (waste of money
)3 place an ac in each upper room and keep the room door closed
