Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I got a Blue Way KYD35 portable airconditioner. Wondering if I need to keep the lids behind the unit open or closed. If I open them hot air blows up into the room defeating the airconditioning. I cannot close the lids either because am not letting the hot air go out. Is there something missing in the unit like a duct that takes the hot air away?? Thanks for the help in advance.

Yes, hopefully it has 2 of them, 1 for removing air from outdoors rather than ejecting indoor air to the outdoors, again fighting itself in the process due to infiltration of outdoor air to compensate for the amount being ejected to the outdoors.
The old style portables were designed this way and were not optimal as they pull in warm air as they reject the hot air from condensing the refrigerant gas to a liquid.
With 2 hoses only outdoor air is used to condense the refrigerant and this same air is rejected back outdoors thereby avoiding the negative pressure created by the old single hose design.
You need to install the hose/hoses/ducts to reject the hot air outdoors at minimum.

SOURCE: Cool air when running; warm air when compressor is off.

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.

SOURCE: AC doesn't blow cold air

Threr are suppose to be two sounds comming from the window unit. One, the fan sound and the compressor sounds, (this compresses the refrigerants aove room temperatures (around 240*) & send it to the back coils and remove it to room temperatures and send it to the front coils which if enough freon, it will cool to at least 40*. Turn the thermostat all the way up or down while its off and see if you hear a clicking noise which tells you the thermostat is working which that what calls for cool. If it started loosing cools little by little, then you have a leak, and leaked all the freon out! If it stopped cooling all of once, then your compressor is not kicking in.

SOURCE: wont no water to empty or drain

Either the unit is really dirty or it is low on refrigerant. A unit tha is low on refrigerant will start off cold and withing a few minutes, start warming up. If you aren't seeing any water its because of one or both causes listed.

SOURCE: Calculation of CFM discharge from an opening of a duct collar

There's a thumb rule in A/C air distribution. At 1 TR load, the air supply is about 400 CFM and the ideal diffuser size is 16" x 16" with an effective flow area of about 70%. Branch duct size for this outlet should be around 12" x 12".

there can be several situations going on from the capacitor powering the compressor giong bad or even the unit being low on charge and going off on high temp first thing i would do is check the air filter and then see if there are any batteries inside your thermostat and replace them if those are both ok i would recommend calling a contractor that specializes in your brand of airconditioner

Chest freezer lid


Vacuum is caused by contraction of air. If your temperatures are being maintained the difference in how easily the lid opens and closes is not a point to worry about. If the lid wont shut after it is opened you do have a problem. If the lid is staying open at one corner try, with the lid open give it a slight twist pulling on the corner that is not closing fully. This action should spring the lid back to its original sealing position.
