I would begin by inspecting and repairing the flashing around each vent. Generally you can use a caulk gun with a tube of roof cement for this quick repair.

Air Flow-Life of Equipment


One very important DIY maintenance detail we may forget, or totally ignore, is our air filters, fan, dryer vents, and many other items needing good air flow. Most of us are pretty good about changing air filters in our furnace. The dryer vent can really cause a lot of damage. So not only do we want to clean the obvious lint trap, we need to inspect the hose, and follow it to the outside of the house. Moisture traps the dust inside the pipe and outside vent. Air conditioning/Heat wall units gather a lot of dust as well as window AC units. When you see air intakes, there is usually a filter that will need regular cleaning. Some are reusable you can vacuum, or wash with soap and water. If you do the later, make sure the filter is totally dry before replacing. Every 6 months I move my Fridge away from the wall and vacuum the dust behind where the compressor is so it will run nice and smooth. The big jobs, like cleaning the dryer vent to the outside, is more of a yearly job where as others are monthly, or 3 months. Even your hair dryer has a place where the fan runs, that can get totally clogged. An old toothbrush usually takes care of that. Never put water in anything like a hair dryer, you could damage it. I hope this little tip helps you to remember Air Flow, is so important to all of your items that need a good steady stream of air

WHAT IS THE SQUARE FOOTAGE OF A 14 BY 70 MOBILE HOME.


Hi Sharee:
The square footage is 14 times 70 equals 980 square feet.
That would be the Floor Area.
Air conditioners sometimes need to know the building volume so if you have 8 ft ceilings you would multiple 980 by 8 to get 7,840 CUBIC FEET.
Air exchange is typically are rated at cubic feet per minute and required as "specified Air Changes per Hour.
An example for your trailer would be 1/2 air change per hour required per building code. 7,840 times 1/2 equals 3920 cubic feet per hour. Divide that by 60 to get 65 cubic feet per minute.
That would be the minimum air change capacity for your air conditioner if it was also providing required ventilation.

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.

I think I have it covered above. Let me know if you need something more specific. Thank you. Roger

Poor air movement


mcdevito75 here, You say the fans are recessed into the ceiling are the fan blades blowing the air into this recess instead of outward. Also if your porch is an open porch the fans are competeing with the outside air and temerature. The only other thig to try is to lower thefans another foot.

Wet line on the ceiling between 2 vents


You have a clogged condensate drain line and the condensate is now being syphoned up by the blower and coming out the duct work.
Find where the condensate drain exits the house and you can back flush it gently with a garden hose. Then clean out the condensate pan and pour a mixture of warm water and baking soda into the pan down the drain.
