Hello Karen Bahn,

If your AIRCONDITINING is a ductless system ... that pretty much means every room has it's own thermostat and heat-exchanger (evaporator) cooling it...

The troubles could be easier to locate... if you hired a SERVICE PERSON to your home PROPERLY PREPARED to trouble shoot such a system... (were you to actually disclose DETAIL).

On the other-hand (sans detail) if your system were an
ORDINARY FORCED-AIR... it could be as simple as a collapsed or blocked duct (hopefully in an accessible area)...

ELSE
you are looking at some serious challenges... Over the last
few decades FLEXIBLE DUCTING has allowed for some pretty shabby ducting (and duct joining).

Consequent new building codes... and mandated DUCT EXPERTISE has improved... and EFFICIENCY (proper sealing & pressure delivery) techniques have improved immensely...

Good news for new construction... even for proper trouble resolution of EXISTING problems...

My best advice for ducting issues would be to HIRE certified
TECHNICIANS
so as to REALLY resolve any DUCTING issues that have developed... because of previous poor workman-ship & inadequate materials.

(Then of course there's always that rabbit that came up missing last EASTER... (I'm just saying)).

Hope this helps.

How to cool big home with small air conditioner(s)


A lot of people have only one or two rooms that can take an air conditioner in the window. Often times, the air conditioner is also rated at a cooling power that would make you believe that there is no way that it can to cool the whole house/apartment. You can crank it to the max to try to cool as much as possible, but then this makes one room too cold and the others still stay too hot. You can try blasting the cool air down a hallway with a fan on maximum speed, but that only works so well. And, it's noisy, too. Well, I have two 260 sqr ft rated room air conditioners and I am cooling 2000 sqr feet of house to a comfortable 72 degrees in all rooms and it's been 95 outside all day. How to do it?

The trick is setting up your home to take advantage of laminar air flow. Set your air conditioner to say 68 degrees and start it in the middle of the morning before it feels hot outside. Put the AC deflectors pointing downward and towards the door. Put fans in the doorways pointing out of the rooms that have the AC. Point them level to the floor (not up) and put a fan to one side near the end of long hallways. Set the fans on the lowest power setting (not high). If the hallway branches out into a bigger room, put a fan in the room that is blowing across at a right angle to the entry, pointing the air flow parallel to the wall. This will circulate the cool air around the room. Keep the fans on low and pointed parallel to the floor, not up!

What you have created is a re-circulating air flow system, much like the North Atlantic Current that moderates the temperatures of Europe. You can check this by taking a tissue paper and holding it up to the top of the doorway. The air flow should be pushing the tissue away from the room without the AC and toward the room with the AC. This happens because the warmest air will be toward the ceiling and you want that warm air to make its way across the ceilings and back to the room with the AC, so that it can be cooled again. The cooled air from the AC will sink to the floor and the fans will gently push the air out of the room with the AC. It will stay low and travel along the floor in the opposite direction and into the warmer rooms. If you crank your fans up, you will create turbulent flow and that will not cool your house as efficiently as will laminar flow. Monitor the outside temperature and when it gets cooler outside by a few degrees, turn the AC to fan for about 10 minutes to eek out the last of the cooling. Then open the windows for the night to take advantage of the free cooling that nature provides. That's it! Enjoy the summer!

Too cool or over cool in room


Indoor sensor to sense the room temp and must cut off the compressor by working. If sensor defective, compressor will continuously running resulting to over cool in room. And also 23 C degree setting temp is best cooling for office and bed rooms. If for peculiar instrument which should be kept under low temp, can be set as mentioned temp (say 18 C or 16 C )<br />

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.

A/c seems not to working cooling down room What are my options?


Could be several factors. Let me start by saying the unit you have should cool a room that totals around 450 square feet (Approx.).

If you do not know your rooms square footage just multiply the width of the room x the length of the room.

(e.g. 20' x 10' = 200 SF)

The above 450 SF is for a room with typical 8' ceilings. This is also a "Rule-Of-Thumb" measurement, as windows, doors, insulation, and air leakages (heat gain) also play a role in calculation of heat loads. But this will get you close....

If the room is larger than 450 S.F. in size then the unit is too small for this size room.

A rule of tumb for sizing is: every 600 square feet requires a ton (or 12,000 BTU) of cooling. Again, without doing a proper load calculation on the room or area being cooled, it is hard to be exact.

The other possibility is the unit is not operating as it should due to mechanical or other issues. This is hard to specify. COuld be refrigerant levels are low, coils dirty, or filter dirty.

AC was cooling fine. Now, won't cool room even though cool air comes out. Exhaust hose is extremely hot.


Check filter, if you have a 5000BTU unit (small) and it is extremely hot, then it wont work great for a big room. BTU is the rate of what the AC will put out. 5000 BTU is good for a small single room. 10,000 will cool a bigger room and 18,000 btu is meant to cool a home.

Turning room thermostat down, doesnt cool room


You have a safety switch switch on your system that is opening and locking your system out, not allowing it to come on. This is telling you that there's a problem with the system and it needs to be checked out.
