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
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
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
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) .
Ductless split air conditioning units are the very best thing for some situations. Of course they can be installed in the place of most any central air conditioning unit. They also are a very good alternative to window air conditioning units. I will explore the use of these units more closely and look at how they can be used effectively. One of the many problems encountered by the professional is when they are asked to install central air conditioning in an older home that was never designed with air conditioning as even a possibility. The walls may be very thick stone. Often they have very little or no insulation. The floor structures may be rough cut lumber. The joists spacing may be random. Walls and ceilings are plaster and lathe. Basically everything is stacked against any type of ducted central air conditioning. Many log style homes also are not very easy to get any kind of ducted central air conditioning installed. The open ceilings and the bare log wall design does not allow for any kind of ducting. I'm sure there are other situations. These are the ones that I have come across most frequently. If you have a home or building that falls into one of these categories you may want to investigate installing a ductless air conditioner. This type of air conditioner can be installed in almost any home or building. The small indoor unit can be attached to the wall with a few screws. Most of the units only require that a three inch hole be bored through the outside wall. In new installations the units can be placed on inside walls with some fore thought and planning. For installation in older homes or homes that are already built you will want to plan the units to be on the outside walls. The outdoor condenser units can be placed up to one hundred feet away from the indoor units. One outdoor unit can be used for many indoor units. Up to four indoor units can be attached to the same outdoor condenser. Some very advanced electronics will control the operation of the condenser and compressor to supply the refrigerant to the indoor air handler units that are running at the time. With variable speed technology the compressor and the condenser fan will only run as fast as needed. This technology has become very efficient in the last few years. You do not have to give up any efficiency with these ductless split units. Another advantage to these mini split air conditioners is that they can be controlled to run only in the rooms that you actually need air conditioning in. If you are not going to be in a room you can shut down the unit. The units also have timers that can be set to turn the air conditioning on or off at preset times. If you are not going to be home all day the air conditioning can be setback or turned off. The timer will turn on the air conditioning so that you return to a cool house. Central air conditioning is very hard to zone effectively. Also with large central air conditioning systems the outdoor compressor will be running at full capacity even though only a few rooms amy be calling for cooling. There are some central air conditioning systems that are do some staging and variable speed technology. These are not as efficient or as effective as the ductless split technology. Ductless split heatpumps are another great idea to look at. For a few dollars more you can also very easily have heat from your air conditioning mini split. Then especially in the mild spring and fall weather you can have some very efficient heat with out starting up that big monster of a furnace or boiler in the basement. In southern climates the heatpump version of the ductless split system may provide enough heat year around. Ductless split air conditioning is definitely something that can solve many problems for some homeowners. Add to that the many advantages of these units and you will find that they are worth every penny that you will invest into them. As with any project like this make sure that you screen your contractor. These units are not for do it yourself people. There are many things that need to be done correctly for these units to work properly and efficiently. A refrigeration license is also required to install these air conditioners. By doing a little research and hiring the right person you will enjoy many years of trouble free service from your new ductless mini split system.
Doesn't matter how hot it was when installed, there still should have been proper start up performed. That means running unit thru all cycles and checking charge. If it was installed this summer then installer should warranty service to return and complete install properly.
Due to the many different questions I see about Air Conditioning, I am including this overview to help us better understand each other for trouble shooting. A basic air conditioning system has a Thermostat, Air Handler or Furnace Fan and a Condensing unit. In a split system, the condensing unit (Condenser) is separate from the furnace and usually in the back yard. When working properly, it blows hot air. It connects to the cooling part of the system by 2 copper lines. One large line and 1 small line. The part that cools the house is the "Evaporator" and is usually on top of the furnace inside the square metal box (Plenum). When the Air Conditioner is running, the large copper line should be cold and the smaller line should be warm. Common signs of low refrigerant are that both lines are the same temperature and/or frost or ice has built up on the large line at the condenser. The thermostat will normally display room temperature on till it is touched to change the setting. It could have a "Span" setting as well as times and temperatures. The operating "span" of MOST residential thermostats is 40 to 90 degrees. That means you can set it as low as 40 degrees and no higher than 90 degrees. It probably has a fan switch also. When in the "ON" position, the fan will run constantly, 24 / 7, but the condenser will still cycle on and off as needed to keep the house at set point. If you have a suggestion to include in this paragraph, please let me know.
Please read the above paragraph and see if we can narrow the possibilities. How long does it stay off? Does it restart by itself? Does it blow any cold air while running? Thank you. Roger
This unit is use in motels etc. Check the ouside coil ( conderser) from the inside (discharge fan ) for dirt. Most of these units are floor level . This can cause a unit to short cycle ( cold air is at the floor) .
Check the radiator for dirt, and check if the radiator fan is functioning. Do you notice any wetness or ice build up on the outside copper pipes. If so, suggest calling a refrig. tech. to add gas. The gas used is R22 on most aircons.
