Re: Air Conditioning

An air conditioner of this type always has standing water sitting in the base-tray of the machine as it's running. They're designed to work that way. However, if the unit leans slightly in toward the inside of your house, then the water in the tray can be deeper than it should and/or add extra humidity to the inside air. These units are designed to be installed so that they lean slightly to the _outside_ of the window or wall-hole where they are mounted. This way the standing water drains off to the ground outside and isn't so deep that it gets hit by the fan. Check the mounting of this unit to make sure it leans slightly toward the outside. Also verify that any notch or drain hole on the outside end of the unit, intended to guide draining water, is not clogged with debris (which could also cause the standing water in the unit to be at too high a level). Doing these things will make sure that the water in the base-tray of the unit won't get caught up in the fan and sprayed everywhere. And, in case you need it, the Users Manual is available for download at this URL: --> Hope this helps! ;)

Save cost with some precautions

Precautions to be taken in air conditioners and to save cost.

These are some useful precautions to be taken in air conditioners (A/C).Improper refrigerant charge can damage your compressor, which is the heart of your air conditioning system; this is an expensive air conditioner repair. Systems improperly charged will cause increased electric bills because this will reduce the efficiency of your air conditioning system. The proper refrigerant charge will provide longer equipment life, lower your utility bills and reduce the need for air conditioning service.
A dirty condenser coil (outside unit) will reduce your air conditioning systems ability to remove and reject heat from your home. This will cause your system to run longer and increase your electric bills. The benefit of a clean condenser coil is proper heat rejection, reduced run time and lower energy bills. A dirty air conditioning condenser can lead to system failure and the need for you air conditioner to be repaired, dirt and house dust that escapes through your air conditioning filter can cling to the cold moist coil. This will restrict the air flow through the coil reducing your air conditioning system of performance and capacity. Maintaining the evaporator coil will ensure that proper air flow is delivered to all areas of your home, increase comfort levels, provide a cleaner healthier indoor environment. Inspecting and changing your air filter on a monthly basis will help prevent air conditioner repairs.
As your air conditioning system removes heat from your home, humidity is extracted from the air. The condensation created by warmer air passing over a cold coil must be drained from your system. This is done through a condensate drain line. The drain must be checked and cleared of algae build up or foreign particles clogging the drain, which could cause water damage to the ceiling or floors of your home. By keeping your air conditioner drain line clear you will reduce the need for air conditioning service and overflow problems which can result in water damage. Proper draining will also aid in maintaining indoor humidity levels.
Cause of air flow
Dirty blower wheels can affect the air flow to your home; limit your air conditioning system's capacity and your comfort. It can also spread dust particles which irritate sinus and allergies. A clean blower wheel and fan motor will provide maximum air flow, improved comfort levels and proper cooling. Most of air conditioner repairs are caused by dirt and the lack of maintenance.
Cause of electrical panel
Your thermostat should be properly calibrated. This will ensure accurate temperature control and operating cycle. This will save you on operating cost and assure your comfort level. Moving parts in need of lubrication can cause increased electrical consumption and air conditioner repairs. This is due to additional power required to overcome the resistance in motors and drive shafts that are not lubricated. Proper system lubrication will offer smooth motor and shaft operation, extended part life and less air conditioner repairs. The electrical components on your air conditioning system should be inspected regularly for signs of wear. Faulty electrical components can lead to very expensive air conditioning repairs. A thorough inspection will reduce the need for air conditioner service if the faulty or worn parts are replaced when found.
Carrying this tips help reduce the amount of air conditioner repairs you will encounter over your air conditioning systems lifespan. If you are in need of air conditioner service make sure the company you choose is licensed and insured to do the required repair work (warranty) .

I just purchased The same air it continues to leak,the water has destroyed my there a specific way I am suppose to drain it...I purchased it on Craigslist

Without more information you are out of luck on a complete answer. Normally a window AC (I am assuming a window unit) needs to be tilted a bit to the back so the water will run outside not inside. With two units doing that I am fairly confident that by tilting it to the back just enough for the water to go to the back your problems will be solved but about the carpet get a professional to clean it.

most home air conditioners go as low as 18 c but this low setting achieves nothing but a high power bill
the purpose of air conditioning ( air conditioning -- to condition the air) is to remove the humidity ( water vapour ) form the air and allow the body to perspire more freely and so is by the evaporation of the perspiration of the body water that cools the body
this evaporation is hastened by the fact that the water vapour in the air is very low due to the air conditioner operation of conditioning the air
Now knowing this fact it is obvious that all the windows and door should be kept closed ( to remove the humidity from the room /house and so a setting of 25-26 c is sufficient to keep you cool
because the temperature difference between outside air and room air is low the air conditioner cycles less frequently and costs less to run
if the room setting is at minimum and the atmospheric temp is high then the air conditioner is running virtually all the time
so instead of asking what is the minimum temp you should be asking what is the optimum temp run to be conformable and to save on power costs

Does this air conditioner need water

Air conditioners don't need water. if it is runnibng properly and blowing cold air it will produce water on the condensing coil. Look at the coil. If you see a lot of ice, turn the unit off and wait until the ice melts. If the ice returns it is probably low on freon. This must be taken care of by a licensed air conditioning tecnician.

Air conditioner not cooling

This is a tell tale sign that your condenser coil on the rear of your upper unit is dirty. You need to get up on the roof and remove the shroud from the unit. Gently spray into the condenser with a water hose until the water that is coming out is clean. This is a good procedure to do once or twice a year to help the efficiency of your unit.

Hope this helps.

Daikin air conditioner leakin water at a fast rate

You should have access to the condensate drain from the outside. You can use compressed air to unclog the unit. If you can, try accessing the drain from the source outward but be careful, you can blow debris everywhere. Make sure you have something to catch it so it doesn't spray everywhere. If you don't have access to compressed air, you can use a small plumbing snake to work you way up the pipe. Hope this answers your question.
