Question about Sharp CV-P09FX Air Conditioner
Jusr purchased a new Sharp portable stand-alone model. When the unit is actively cooling; no problem..lots of cool air coming from the unit. But, when the condensor cycles off, the unit blows luke warm air into the room. I'm never convinced the room temperature is reaching the desired temperature, and when I open the door, the air in the hallway, which is being cooled by just a fan, feels cooler. The room is a small bedroom and the blinds are dark and closed (this is our kids room.) Thanks!
It sounds as if warm outside air is being drawn back into the room when the unit is not actively cooling. Portable units depend on room air to carry the heat outside, & therefore will not work properly if the room is too airtight. Provide a makeup air passage by leaving the door slightly open, & see if this helps. Use a room thermometer to see if your desired temperature is being reached. Note that if the wind is strong & coming from the wrong direction, it may not be possible to prevent warm air drawback.
