    Sounds like the outside unit has a bad fan motor and or a bad capacitor. Look at the capacitor in the outside unit. Is it bulged out anywhere? Loose or burned wires?

I have a Honeywell RTH230 thermostat. Ive read the manual top to bottom and have set the temperature to 70 degrees and followed all the directions. But my home is still almost 85 degrees, and even hotter...


i am assuming the unit is coming on and all... there could be an issue with the refrigerant in the system such as a leak.. need to make sure the indoor fan is coming on and also that the outside unit is coming on..there are 2 copper lines at outside unit that are refrigerant lines the larger one should be cool and the small line should be warm.. there also should be hot air blowing out of the outside unit... if this is not happening you have a problem with either the freon has leaked or the compressor may not be coming on inside the outside unit \

Hello, it is possible that the unit may be undersized for you home and not being able to keep up with the indoor heat load. The only way to determine thia have a hvac contractor do a cooling load calculation on your home. I have seen many units undersized that cause this problem.

I have never used central ac before - how do I set it? If it is on 75 will that cool the house? If I want it cooler, do I put it lower? like 65?


As to your question 'will 75 cool the house?' The answer is 'yes' - if the outside temperature is low enough. Typically speaking you can expect your central AC to cool a properly insulated house to a down to a temperature of about 20-25 degrees lower than the outside temperature. For example - if the outside temp is 95 degrees. You could expect to get your house down to 70-75 degrees. If the outside temp is 110 degrees then you could only expect to get the house to 85 or 90 degrees.

So .. as you can see - your 'inside' temp will be directly affected by the 'outside' temperature.

As to the operation of central air; it is very simple.

I would suggest that you not pay 'too much attention' to what you have the thermostat set on. A comfortable temperature - is a personal thing - so - I would set it somewhere - say 72 and see how I (and others in the house) was handling that setting.

If you want it 'cooler' just 'notch' it down a degree or two - if you need it a little warmer - turn it up a degree or two. Do this "fine adjusting" till you have the temperature setting you are comfortable with.

Usually the more you can leave your thermostat alone the better off you will be from a comfort position and an electrical useage standpoint. Obviously, the higher you have your thermostat set the 'less' it will cost you on your electric bill.

How high you set the temperature is a balance you have to come to based on how comfortable you want to be - matched with how much you want to hold down the electric bill.

hope this helps

A/C units have a design temperature of 90F. Now when the temperature is above 90F they start to have trouble keeping up. Depending on how well your unit is sized for the house, you will notice when the temp is over 90F. I don't know if who ever looked at your unit checked the refrigerant pressures since you said he checked the temps but I assume he did, however, it could possibly need charging.

I think you may have 2 problems. Thje outdoor fan not coming on would cause the compressor to either go out on high discharge pressure or internal overload. Either the fan is bad or the capacitor is bad or both, which can be replaced.
The second problem is either the unit froze up on you and for the short time that it will cool before it quits. You may want to make sure you cool speed for your indoor unit is set to hi cool speed which is usually black

The fat line is suppose to have moisture on it wheres it,s not insulated which tells you you have enough refrigerant gas comming back to he compressor but if its dry you,re low on freon and need a charge or the outside condenser is dirty and not getting rid of enough heat!
