Question about Heating & Cooling
Our York central air (10 years old) all of a sudden trips it's circuit breaker only at night (temperatures humid and about 75, programming set to drop inside home temp to 70 while we sleep). Capacitor replaced first. That night unit tripped circuit. Unit was running higher than normal ampage while on, so removed some freon (whatever it is called now) to see if it was causing the unit to be too cold. Again, that night unit tripped circuit. Finally, circuit (40 amp) replaced. That didn't work either, that night unit tripped circuit. Any ideas????
First off, it's illegal to release freon into the atmosphere. the epa could charge you $32,500, so keep it under your hat. second, if it's getting too cold where the evaporator coils are icing up, it's too lille freon, not too much. as for the breaker tripping, your compressor might be wearing out. if it's pulling too much current, the motor is failing and the compressor needs replacing. and do not do it yourself unless you're certified by the epa to move freon and have the proper equipment to recollect the used freon.
