Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I have a Carrier Xarios 300 cool room air-conditioning unit that has been taken off a ute body and made into a cool room trailer. It requires to be re gassed as the hoses connecting to the car zircon has been cut. It has separate 240 power for the compressor but I want to know if the unit now can run without connecting the car zircon hoses. Basically, can this unit run as a stand alone poolroom air-con unit? Thanks Neil

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.

Have you checked the freon level in this unit? If you are low or there is a leak it could be the problem. Hope this helps.

there is a run capacitor is probably bad.
you can purchase a replacement one from slakey brothers. However the capacitor will still have a charge after the power and wires are removed. after turning off the breaker use a long bladed screw driver and ground the electrical leads to discharge the capacitor before removing. take it with you to the supply house along with the model and serial number of the condensing unit.

It is true that it is a sealed unit and should never need charged with freon unless a leak has developed. Most service techs will tell you that they cannot be recharged because you do have to break into the sealed system with a solder in valve or a line tap. They hold such a small amount of freon that finding and fixing the leak can be next to impossible and time consuming. Make sure that the inside and outside coils are clean. The outside fins can be brushed with a semi-soft brush like a toilet brush and then washed out with water. Make sure your power is off first. If the coils are dirty it will act just like it does if the refrigerant is low. 75 to 80 percent of air conditioner service calls are solved by cleaning the outside condenser coil. Brush up and down and do not put so much water pressure on it that the cooling fins start bending.

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM TEMPERATURE OF COOLING


most home air conditioners go as low as 18 c but this low setting achieves nothing but a high power bill
the purpose of air conditioning ( air conditioning -- to condition the air) is to remove the humidity ( water vapour ) form the air and allow the body to perspire more freely and so is by the evaporation of the perspiration of the body water that cools the body
this evaporation is hastened by the fact that the water vapour in the air is very low due to the air conditioner operation of conditioning the air
Now knowing this fact it is obvious that all the windows and door should be kept closed ( to remove the humidity from the room /house and so a setting of 25-26 c is sufficient to keep you cool
because the temperature difference between outside air and room air is low the air conditioner cycles less frequently and costs less to run
if the room setting is at minimum and the atmospheric temp is high then the air conditioner is running virtually all the time
so instead of asking what is the minimum temp you should be asking what is the optimum temp run to be conformable and to save on power costs

Portable Air Conditioning great portable air cooling


Portable air conditioning offers you the convenience of mobility. All you have to do is roll the portable air conditioner to the room in which it's needed. Install an exhaust hose out a window or other opening (everything you need is provided) and turn it on. The installation process for these units is very simple. These portable air conditioning units are built small enough to be very mobile and are supplied with wheels for easy movement. A portable air conditioner will also work very well in apartment situations where you will often find a window unit is unacceptable.

Portable air conditioners are very unique in that they are portable and can be easily moved to different locations in your home or business. They can be a highly effective way to either help out an existing HVAC system in one room or cool a single room entirely. They are also one of the best ways to cool a room or area without having to install a window mounted unit.

These air conditioners use a compressor and Freon to cool just like normal air conditioning. They are very effective in cooling rooms and to keep the humidity low. Like normal air conditioners portable units extract hot air that must be vented. That is why they need to have the exhaust hose to the outside. These units can cool air as well as air conditioning done with window air conditioners. However they do not require installation like conventional window air conditioners this makes them very convenient for seniors or physically challenged people. Most portable air conditioners are supplied with a window kit. This kit contains exhaust hoses that will work in any window: double-hung, casement, awning or slider. Because they vent through an opening like a window they require no permanent mounting like window air conditioning.

Portable air conditioners are a very good cooling option for those who can't use the more conventional air conditioning methods. Remember though that this type of unit is not as efficient as most window units or conventional air. So while they may make your environment cooler, it won’t turn your tent into a room at the local hotel.

So as you can see these air conditioning units have some great advantages over other types of air conditioning. They are a great alternative for unique applications where central air or conventional window units are either unfeasible or too expensive. During special events, portable air conditioning can also be a great way to keep guests or equipment cool and comfortable. Always be aware though that because portable air conditioning will remove moisture from the air, they will also need to be drained occasionally similar to a dehumidifier.

Does your application warrant a permanent air conditioner of some form or should you just use a portable one? There are some interesting things to consider when making that choice. Weigh out all of the different options and make that decision based on what will best suit your needs.

Blows very cold air during dehumidify mode.


se this fact: God bless you
air conditioning system cools but does not dehumidify the room. The most common cause of inadequate dehumidification by an air conditioning system is the installation of a cooling unit which has too much capacity, or is "over-sized" for the space it is being used to cool. What happens is simple:

If an air conditioning compressor unit is oversized (too many BTUH of cooling capacity) what happens is it cools the room so quickly that the system does not move enough total volume of air across the cooling coil to remove much moisture before the room temperature has dropped to the A/C cut-off point.

In other words, an air conditioner needs to run longer, and move more total volume of air through itself to drop room humidity than it does to just cool the air. So "bigger" cooling capacity or higher BTU capacity for an air conditioning system is not necessarily better, and it can actually be a problem.

There are a few things you can try.Close the vents half way in rooms your not using often too force more air to where you want it.

Inside coil and filter may be clogged or dirty.Change filter and clean coil with a degreaser spray,simple green works well mixed with water.

Thermostat location? is it in a common area like the living room.If not it should be there.

Lets look at the output of the system first. Take your square footage of the area you are trying to condition and times it by 15. We try to get 15 Btu's per square foot of air conditioning. If your area is say 10 by 15, you have 150 square feet; times it by 15 = 2250 Btu unit is required. If you have a 5,000 Btu unit, it should be more than enough to cool the room. If this is correct, the problem may be because you have the unit set for Dry. In Dry mode, the compressor will cycle less frequently than if on Cool. If in fact the unit is on Cool, you may need to lower the temperature setting to fool the sensor from turning off the compressor prematurly. If you still can't cool the area, your unit has an issue with either refrigeration or air circulation and will need to be serviced.

Mitsubishi Through the Wall Unit Does Not Remove Humidity


You were told incorectly. From what you are describing the unit is oversized for your space.

All Air conditioners remove humidity. In fact the Air conditioner was invented by accedent by Mr carrier when he was trying to invent a machine to remove humidity. He discovered that by drawing air accross a cold coil the humidity drained off the coil. He also discovered that it was a mighty effective way to cool large quantities of air, and we then had "Carrier" air conditioning systems.

When a system is to large for the area it is to cool, it will cool the air in that small area so fast that the humidity starts to condense in the room before it can be pulled through the evaprator coil.

In this case, the solution would to be either replace the unit with a smaller one.
Increase the area to be cooled. (open doors to other rooms etc). or use the dehumidifier.

How many square foot is the space you are trying to cool?
What size is the AC unit? (in "tons")
