"Closed" cools best, but does not exchange air with the outside. Humidity in the room can have more of a tendency to freeze up on the coils, but it is relatively rare. Odors also tend to build up. "Open" allows some outside air to be exchanged with the inside air, but this is less effecient.
That was the long answer. What I'd do is operate it as closed as I could stand it, and leave it cracked open a bit. If I started having icing problems, I'd open it a bit more.

My DeLonghi PAC A110L portable air conditioner is leaking water. How do I fix this?


Hallo

If an Air Conditioner is on cooling then the Air Conditioner also removes humidity from the air any Split Unit, Window Wall A/C you name it... Any A/C on cooling dehumidify the air in the room.

To decrease the volume of the water:
1) Clean Air filter/s
2) Keep doors and windows close( can open now and again).

I don't know how that portable A/C of your look like but I believe theirs a water pan inside that needs cleaning I think it's full.( best is to service the hole A/C).

Hope this was useful.

Regards

Hi there, I have a LG ac through wall/window unit LWHD1200FR 11,500 BTU. It's have a Open vent/Close vent mechanism by the front louver from where the cool air comes out. I would like to know what...


The OPEN is to be used when the air temperature is cool enough, not to have to use the AC. When it's open, the fan continues to operate and pulls cool air in from the outside and circulates it inside the room. Generally, this is only used at night, when temperatures are milder and there's less humidity. When it's CLOSED, the AC is in cooling mode and only the inside air is used to cool and is exhausted as needed. Hot, humid days & nights are when it should remain closed.

I hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

What is purpose of pull lever on top right of decorative panel


It's an air intake vent damper. If you push it in, the unit won't pull any air from outside, instead it'll recirculate air from the room. If you pull it outward, it allows the unit to pull air from outside. During the day when it's hot outside, the lever should be pushed into the closed position to allow for more efficient cooling. At night, if you want to exchange air from outside when it's cool enough, pull out the lever to allow that to happen. The unit will exhaust hot air no matter if this switch is in or out.

My attic air conditioner will stay at 81 degrees in the hottest part of the day only when it is sunny when it is cloudy it works fine I have a small 900 sq foot ranch


if the difference in termperature is between 15 and 20 degrees between the inlet and outlet, the unit is doing all it can and is undersized. if not check for airflow problems, filters, dirty coils etc. and if that is all good, then there may be issues with the refrigerant charge

Re: air cond. should exhaust lever be open or closed to cool off?


Im not sure what type of unit you are speaking about but in general a window airconditioner unit will have an exhaust button. This button generally opens a small door that allows a small ammount of fresh air to mix with the conditioned air from the room. When it is closed all of the air is recycled from the room. To cool a room fastest, close the outside air inlet.

What is the air exchanger (open or closed) switch for?


The air exchanger is there to give you the option of adding fresh outdoor air [open] or recirculate the air in the room [closed].

A/c doesn't remove moisture in the room? even when exchanger is set on open or closed--no moisture in collection tray either model #agj3211daxt2    G.E.


An A/C unit is a dehumidifyer BUT Unit are rated in Pints of water, a Unit in Florida might need a de humiditiyer connected to it, the air is heavy with humidity. Another reason is that the Unit is under sized or not allowed to run long enough (?) Infor. on what State you live in would help and the size of the apt. or house the unit is covering. The best T / H would be 70* and 55 H and that would be on the cool side for most people , avg temps in a house would be 74* 65%, body temps are 98.6 most A/C unit are rated at 90* amp temp ( outside ) if the condenser is dirty this will cut the performance on a hot day over 85* Keep unit clean -replace filter (s) . If your getting a 15 degree reading between outside and inside your doing good the best would be 20 degrees ( depending on heat load) windows, and sun. Actic fans remove 30% of the heat -it will drop the temp from 120 to about 85, this can save you a lot of money in A/C bills and help cool the house in warm day when you don't need the A/C.

F1, F2, and F3 are the strength of the fan blowing the air conditioner. F1 circulates the least amount of air, F3 the most. I generally find that if the air conditioner isn't getting the job done on F1, F2 will do it. I typically only use F3 if I just want to circulate air fast in my place for awhile. As far as what is "better" with closed vent or open, that depends on what you want to do. If you are using air conditioning on a hot day, then vent closed is better because it will cool only air circulating in your place. Vent open will allow fresh air in from outside, and if it's a really hot day, the air conditioner might have a harder time cooling off the fresh air than the circulating air inside your place (as it's continually being cooled repeatedly by your air conditioner).

Quick Question


It has been my experience that the vent lever opens a small flap allowing some of the air in the blowers air stream to vent to the outdoors - not something you would use in the cooling mode since it "dumps" your cooled air. If you wish to use the unit as an air mover/exchanger, you would operate the unit with this vent open.

1990's Emerson Quiet Kool window air conditioner


Hi, It opens a flap that allows fresh outside air to come in. The opening it screen covered on most units so no insects get in. To get the most cooling it is best to leave it closed. If you want fresher air, open it. Please rate my suggestion if it has helped. Thank you and, Have a good day. kstfas
