Question about Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

Thermastat I have dial type thermastat that sticks out from the wall 1-2 inches. It is located smack dab in the middle of a main wall in my living room, it is an eye sore. Is it alright to cover it with something as long as there is room behind what I cover it with? Or will this cause problems. Right now we are not using heat or air, and what I have hanging there is a metal art piece. Or what other options do I have? Thanks Dana

Hello Dana. Will covering a thermostat affect its performance? Yes, almost certainly - it needs a clear flow of air to it so that it can constantly monitor the room temp. It really depends on how much it's covered by whatever you plan to place in front of it. I guess your options are: (1) move the thermostat (obvious, I know!). Cost will depend on how easy it is to re-route the cable. (2) fit a flush-fitting and more attractive unit - check out the 'Heatmiser' for an example (3) cover it and see what happens! It won't actually harm the unit (well, it shouldn't...), but will probably make the temp swings more obvious before the thermostat 'clicks in'.

Unless you damage the thermostat in someway, covering it is a non issue. Because it is an electrical device you will still want to have easy access to it, so don't do anything too permanent! OPTIONAL: I recommend that you disconnect this device at the power source (usually its own breaker/fuse) just to be safe.

Living room with a colorful and old-fashioned fireplace or retrofit TV cabinet. In addition, the carpet of colorful rectangle filling compared to the living room adds a lot of modern feeling. Tobacco basket, licorice fork, folding beds decorated on the wall, gave the entire living room into a rural sense. Built-in bookcases used for storage, sofa platform for display decorations, and leather sofas will make the living room look full business sense.

How do I gain access to the fan which is located on the inside of the unit of a split aircon, the unit which resides inside the house. Need to pull this part out off the unit to clean it. Thanks


is this a split system on your wall or a cassette(a square unit in the middle of the room) like in the picture? units on the wall are very annoying to get out and if you do you will probably brake it. best to just turn of the unit and whip and spin whip and spin with a long brush or stick with a cloth on it.cassette units you unclip middle filter plastic panel then theres a fan use a shifter to undo ?

My car dosent like to start. It fires up and then dies


Sounds like you have heat soak. Is it not wanting to turn over when it is warmed up? If so then it is your starter.

The fuel filter is smack dab in the middle underneath the car. Mine was under a heat shield for the exaust. The fuel pump is in the tank and is only accessible by dropping the tank.

You would have to completely take the Mirror out or Mylar backing and being careful not to damage anything, trying to move and reassemble when you get at the new location.
