Temperature says it is -32 degrees outside when it is + 32 degrees


Really? waah...waah. My car doesn't even have a temp gage. It's a good car. Don't worry about it. Use the weather app on your phone.

Lasko 5141 - I set the temp to hold @ 68 degrees at night but it seems to ignore the setting and gets into the high 70's. This is with the rotation switch on if that makes a difference. Any Help ? Thanks


Remember it is always colder at the floor level, the heater is pretty close to temp when it is above 40 degrees outside, but as the temperature gets colder outside so does the temperature at the floor level in your house because heat rises.

I use my house furnace thermostat mounted half way up the wall as a guide, When the temp outside is in the teens, I have seen as much difference between the floor temp on the heater and the wall to be 4-6 degrees different. So this means as the tempurature outside drops you need to regulate the thermostat on the heater downward to compensate for the colder floor temperatures.

I have never used central ac before - how do I set it? If it is on 75 will that cool the house? If I want it cooler, do I put it lower? like 65?


As to your question 'will 75 cool the house?' The answer is 'yes' - if the outside temperature is low enough. Typically speaking you can expect your central AC to cool a properly insulated house to a down to a temperature of about 20-25 degrees lower than the outside temperature. For example - if the outside temp is 95 degrees. You could expect to get your house down to 70-75 degrees. If the outside temp is 110 degrees then you could only expect to get the house to 85 or 90 degrees.

So .. as you can see - your 'inside' temp will be directly affected by the 'outside' temperature.

As to the operation of central air; it is very simple.

I would suggest that you not pay 'too much attention' to what you have the thermostat set on. A comfortable temperature - is a personal thing - so - I would set it somewhere - say 72 and see how I (and others in the house) was handling that setting.

If you want it 'cooler' just 'notch' it down a degree or two - if you need it a little warmer - turn it up a degree or two. Do this "fine adjusting" till you have the temperature setting you are comfortable with.

Usually the more you can leave your thermostat alone the better off you will be from a comfort position and an electrical useage standpoint. Obviously, the higher you have your thermostat set the 'less' it will cost you on your electric bill.

How high you set the temperature is a balance you have to come to based on how comfortable you want to be - matched with how much you want to hold down the electric bill.

hope this helps

I have a 2 1/2 ton unit. If the outside temperature is 95 degrees. What should I expect from my unit in cooling my house.


If properly charged your unit should perform fine, having a dirty condensor at that temperature can cause problems not easily recognized.

A well insulated house should be able to maintain a 20 degree temperature difference whether its summer
or winter. No Mechanical cooling or heating involved
for at least 6-8hrs if not more.

If it never cools when it is 95 degrees outside the ambient outside temperature is not the problem.
At 95 degree out side air you should be seeing inside discharge air temperatures betwenn 48-55 degrees.

It is the load in the house that determines how long the unit will run at 95 degress.

Outside temperature reading on my 2009 Chevy Silverado truck is always 4-8 degrees lower than the actual outside temperature.


the outside temperature sensor on vehicles takes the temperature of the air about 2-3 inches off the ground, that close to the ground it might be a couple degrees colder than the temperature on the thermometer you have mounted in the window of your house.

Indoor temp is 5 degrees colder than display reads on digital thermostat


Where are you measuring the indoor temperature?
To compare it to the thermostat temperature you have to measure both temperatures at thermostat.
The thermostat will only control the temperature at the thermostat, not any where else in the room.
The room temperature depending on insulation in walls and ceiling and distance from outside wall and outside temperature, can be as high as 10° difference from outside wall to inside wall of house.
The lower the outside temperature, the greater the room difference in heating. The higher the outside temperature the greater the room difference in cooling.

The freezer section of my refrigerator flucuates in temperature. It can go from 0 degrees to 4 - 6 degrees. What causes this?


The length and frequency of the defrost cycle is determined by the control-board computer. It depends on the time of the doors being open, outside temperature, temperature and amount of food inside.

others have said that it is 'normal' for theirs to go up or down 15 degrees.

What is the difference between 8 and -9


Hello,
8-(-9)=8+9= 17.

Suppose you have a temperature of -9 degrees outside and 8 (in fact +8) degrees in you home. What is the difference of temperature between the inside and the outside.
Starting from the -9 deg mark, you move up the scale counting the number of degree marks until you reach +8 degrees.
Each time you see a degree mark you add one
-9 Does not count, it is the starting point.
-8 Count 1
-7 2
-6 3
-5 4
-4 5
-3 6
-2 7
-1 8
0 9
+1 10
+2 11
..


+8 17

Hope it helps.
