Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Airconditioner has weak cooling power.

I have a split system airconditioner in an average size bedroom, it has a limited abiity to cool the room. For example the normal room temp is usually about 32 deg C and the unit is only able to bring the temp down to around 27-28 degC. When I checked the unit on the outside of the house the compressor fan was running fine in comparison to other units we have in the house but, the lower hose and brass fitting on the right side of the unit was extremely cold and covered in ice. On the other units it gets cold but moisture only condenses on it. Also the metal fins behind the dust filter on the indoors section become covered in ice.
Any advice you could give me would be mucch appreciated as the trouble shooting guide at the back of the instructions was of no assistance.
Cheers.

If all the coils on the out side and inside units are clean and the fan motors are running fine it sounds like it could be low on freon

Sounds like you have poor insulation in that room or the unit is undersized for the room it is cooling. It should not get hot quickly is there is good insulation and is big enough to do the job. Since you do not mention the age of your home/room or the size of the room, I can't be more specific. The number of turns may or may not be an issue. Depends of which of the lines are taking all the turns. Are the lines insulated? If they are overly long this could take longer to cool down but not much else if the system in full of Freon. If you do not feel cold air coming out of the unit at all and the compressor is running then check the air filter. If it is the littlest bit dirty and the unit is undersized for the room then any restriction would make it even more ineffective.

I need one split ac for my bedroom. i use ac for 5 hours a day. shpould i buy a 5 start rated panasonic ac for Rs 28000 or a 2 start panasonic ac for rs 18,000. how much electricity i will save in a year


A more relevant question is what size Ac do you need to do the job correctly. A unit too small will run too long, consume more power and not cool the house effectively, so in my opinion a complete waste of money. I suggest that you ask a local contractor or equipment supplier for a equipment sizing guide. If that is not available, perhaps obtain a number of quotes for the area that you wish to air-condition and then take an average sizing from those quotes. regards Col R digitalcontrols.com.au

How to clean the filters in split airconditioners


Check on top of the indoor unit. On some models, the filter will slide out from there without having to open the cabinet. On others you will need to pull on the top front and the panel will swing down (it will be hinged) and the filter will be behind that panel.

Anybody there?


It depends on the room varables, If it has an attic, tile ceiling, what type of walls, where in the building is the room and so on? The biggest problems is all ways the power. Get a free estaimate from an A/C company. Everyone and myself needs to see the room before they give you an recomndation that can truly be applyed to your situation. But to give you some ideas, I would put a 2.5 ton - 3 ton unit just for over kill. Go with a straight cool package unit. If your company tight on cash just get a mini split system with a 30,000 BTU to 36,000 BTU cooling capacity. Cost for something thats going to last 20 years, avg. is $4,500- for the package unit and as low as $3,000 for the mini split.

Haier room air conditioner doesn't cool maximally at "Hi AC"


You should have at least 5,500 BTU's for that size room. Clean the filter. Turn it on and let it work for a few hours.

2002 Buick LeSabre Limited. Airconditioner cools


The dual air on this car has two temp control motors that are electronic. You need to have the car scaned at a dealer to see if it has a code for the left temp feed back circuit. If so you will need to replace the temp control motor for that side.Good Luck
