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 new lg mini split that fan runs continuous on indoor unit. Customer does not like this. Is there a way to change settings or add a hard wired tstat?

there is a problem in where the unit is installed ( too high) ,the setting for the temperature is too low( recommend 25 C, the doors and windows are open or the unit is too small for the room
the thermostat is in front of the evaporator and reads the incoming air temp so hard wiring a thermostat some where else will not turn the fan off
maybe your customer should have the ac unit operation explained
of course if it is a plug in power lead , it could always be turned off at the wall or if hard wired there should be a circuit breaker in the hard wired wire

The first 3 answers were from idiots. If a person had read her problem they would understand that it is not a oven / stove, but a PTAC unit that heats and cools a room. This type of unit is what is commonly seen in hotels and motels where the individual heating / cooling system is in each room.

Where can I get a manual for my Emerson Quiet Cool Room Air Conditioner? Not sure the model, but these #s were on outside of box: 10DC93 784040B OE21M N14421, is on a little sticker on the right...

Let see if I can help. The numbers don't come up so we'll just try your information.

Exhaust - should be closed when using for Air Conditioning
Energy savings turns the fan off with the compressor when set for Air Conditioning
Fan Only means just that (no Air Conditioning)

Fan speeds Quite same as low, Norm same as medium, Super same as High
Temp settings, what the thermostat senses before cycling compressor.

My AC 1200BTU work in heating 5min. and than stopped

Check temp setting and also room sensor. Setting must be minimum 3 degree more than room temp. Check continuity for sensor. If open replace it. Check coil , air filter and heater element are cleaned.
If high amps, replace heating element. Thanks.

The unit seems to cut off prematurely and then begin the cool air cycle . It heats the room briefly and then cools it down by blowing cool air over the coils. Is this a thermostat problem ?

No I would not think so, a thermostat is only to turn the heater on and off period. Now inside the heater there are controls that set when the blower is to come on usually set at 150 degrees and another to cool down the furnace and this is usually around 130 to 120 degrees. Again these tell it when to run and when to shut down, internally they call them high and low limit controls. I would try to locate the lower limit and boost the cool down temperature up to take care of this problem.

Lg window-type ac

Most little window units are mainly for 300-500 Square foot rooms.
Should be putting around 80-105 degrees top out of those little units, Make sure that your thermostat is set for heat rather then the normal setting of cooling (Turn more towards Heat) also if you have a fan setting you may want to try lowering the fan to low speed vs high fan, which should give you more heat.
Make sure the Filter is clean as well as the coils behind the filter or it will shut down the heaters quicker due to lack of air, shutting down your T-stat and bi-metals quicker.

Good luck!

It sounds like the space is too large for the BTU capacity output of the unit.

Did the unit ever heat the space?

Have you measured the temperature of the incoming air, vs the discharged air?

And finally, based on the Model number in the heading of this thread, this unit is cooling only, no heating (it's not a heat pump).

GE Room Heat/Cool unit will not heat with heat pump

If it was me I would cnage the sensor first. Simply because it is way cheaper than the control board and these sensors are fickle as hell to begin with.
