The temperatures usually experienced from a correctly operating central system are in the 55 degree range at the closest supply register, the difference between the air entering the return and the air at the closest supply vent should be 15-20 degrees. if this is not the case then the unit may have airflow problems, charge problems, or being new, may have metering device issues.

What the temperture suppoe to be in the heater on a 2006 saturn ion 2 2.2L?


Check the water hoses that go to the heater core under the hood. Depending on the thermostat, your water temperature should be around 190-200 degrees.

Not cooling


outdoor air does not matter as much as return air temperture. your compressor is not running if you only have a 2 degree drop

I have a Ruud air conditioner model #13AJA36A01757. The temperture out of the vents is only 70 degrees while it is running. Outside unit, low side is very cold, and the high side is not hot, not even...


If your vents are in the floor, you need to inspect your return air ductwork, you may have some air leaks pulling hot attic air in thru the vents. If the supply vents are in the floor, the return duct may run through your attic, if the duct work is uninsulated or pulled apart, it will pull hot air thru the return, causing a mixture of cold and hot air, giving you a warm air movement through the ductwork. Many service men will not catch this problem. You need to turn the unit on, go up in the attic and visibly inspect the entire return air. I hope this helps you. mark

I have a Ruud Model # UACC-036JAS. Any idea on


Hi, yes the number you are showing me 036 indicates its a 3 ton unit. For every ton of cooling, you will have 12,000 btu's of cooling. 36 divided by 12=3 ton unit. Its showing me also its a Ruud Handler 2.0 ton which would be a Model# UACC-024JAS? If your mobel number is the one you gave me, UACC-036JAS, this is a 3 ton unit, absolutely no questions. I hope I have been of help to you. I am a licensed air conditioning / Refrigeration /Heating Contractor. Let me know if I have been of help.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7
PS If this is a split system with the indoor air handler and condenser outdoors, both coils must be the same tonnage for it to work for you properly. You can't have a 2 ton indoor evaporator coil with a 3 ton condensing unit.

Compressor size


Square footage is how you determine what size of an AC you need, say two bedroom house with 1500 square feet would require a 3 ton unit but I would go to a 4 or 5 ton depending on brand and what you may do in the future, Like adding a bedroom or bathroom and how many people will be living in the house, a heat pump normally last longer the bigger it is and is more efficient than a smaller size. Just think like this, a 3 ton will run 30 minutes to an hour longer to cool the same space as a 5 ton so if the five ton does it 30 minutes faster it will not run as long. And when it has to pull down the temperature again it will do it much faster. So less run time means faster heat or cooling and less energy is used. I have found that the bigger units are made better and last longer as a general rule. And to understand the 3-ton and 5 ton let me say that it means how long it takes 3 tons of ice to bring the temperature down 10 degrees, the old BTU’s British thermal units. However the bigger the unit the more well built it is normally and the less maintenance required. 5 tons of ice would get it cooler faster. But one thing to keep in mind a heat pump is only good for 20 degrees temperature range, for instance if the high range is 80 then the low side would be 60 in order for it to be efficient so if you have it set in the house at 72 degrees on the high side and low side would be 52 degrees. But the larger the unit the less time it would take it to recover from the heat differential.
