They are sized to always recirculate, some models do have a "vent" and when open, the vent brings in a percentage (by volume) of fresh air mixed with the air in the room.

I have a Hampton Bay AC. It is 18,000 BTU. It is 230 volts. The EER is 9.7 and it is 8.3 to 9 amps. When I use energy mode on the AC it blows warm air. What gives? Just cool mode and it blows cool.


Hi Paul,
  • Energy Saver Mode most likely shutdown the compressor and Fan Only will be running to recirculate Ambient air into the room.
  • Make sure there is no Port or Vent that is open on your unit and would let hot air from outside be mixed in with the ambient air especially if it is hot outside.
  • Also refer to the troubleshooting section of your owner's manual.
Good Luck,
JP

Tip

Toyota Air Conditioners


This tip pertains to maximizing the cooling efficiency from your Toyota's Air Conditioning system.

(The info that follows is for vehicles that are not equipped with "Auto" AC.)

On really warm days, nothing is better than getting in a hot vehicle, and turning on the AC for a nice comfortable driving experience.

In our service facility, we continually see customers who are not totally satisfied with their AC output. Hopefully, this tip will address those issues, and just might be useful to you.

The number one reason for poor cooling with the AC on, is neglecting to select the "Recirculate" function on the heater/AC control panel.

What is Recirculate?
That mode is where the AC system 'recirculates' the air contained in the car, thru the AC box, over and over, until the desired temperature is reached. The Recirculate button, knob, lever or slide is easily identified by seeing a picture of a little car, with an arrow doing a 'U-Turn" inside the car. This is the opposite of the "Fresh" mode, which is an arrow going 'straight through' the little car icon.

If you are using the "Fresh" mode, you are actually admitting ambient air into the car. Ambient air is much warmer, and makes the AC work harder, and you will see a 10 degree rise in the air temperature from the dash vents. Also, some vehicles admit the 'Fresh' air from under the hood, so, leaving the 'Fresh' mode selected could actually draw in the much hotter underhood air into the AC system.

So, what to do? Anytime you use the AC, please verify that the Recirculate function has been selected. As stated above, this uses the air in the car over and over, and your cooling efficiency will be 10 degrees colder. You can easily check and verify this with an 'instant-read' thermometer. Put the thermometer in the center dash vent, start up the car, turn on the AC, select Recirculate, and watch the temperature drop. It should stop dropping around 34-36 degrees F (depending on humidity, sun load, and a few other things). Now, when the temperature is as low as it will reach, turn off the Recirculate device. You will see the temperature actually rise, maybe 10-12 degrees.

Some additional info: As long as the car is in Recirculate mode, the AC compressor will eventually turn off, when the interior makes the selected temperature. This saves you gas. If you run the AC with the fresh mode selected, the AC compressor runs all of the time. This wastes gas, and costs you more money.

The best way I can easily sum up Fresh versus Recirculate is this:

Running the car with 'Fresh' selected is like running your refrigerator with the door open. It works, but it does not work good. Choosing 'Recirculate' is like running the fridge with the door closed.
If this tip helps you, please leave a positive helpful rating. Thanks!

When using the ac on a hot summer day,or a mild spring day,the compressor runs...


When using the ac on a hot summer day,or a mild spring day,the compressor runs all the time.If you set it to low,and turn the temp to cold or toward the warmer side,lets say cool,then the ac compressor runs also,it just cycles,on,and off.No matter what setting you are using on your ac control,the ac compressor stays on,using fuel.Get the most out of your ac,while it uses your fuel,to keep you comfortable.All vehicles have a MAX setting,or a recirculate setting.Always use this setting.I say,always use this setting,not only that,but use this setting.I stress this because you are pulling in air ,from the out side,that is warming the evaporator,and making the ac work harder to give you comfort.In the hot ,hot summer,the settings MAX,and recirculate,keep the air that is in the vehicle,in the vehicle.It recirculates the air,instead of bringing hot air inside the vehicle ,and bringing the temp,up,to a warmer temp.A lot of people don`t even know that this is on the control,or don`t know what it is for.Some times the recirculate button,or dial,will have a picture that looks like a C,but squared off at the corners.So folks,get more out of your vehicles cooling and heat system.Yes ,this will work on heat also,maybe not defrost,but on some cars,it will work.

What is the open air or closed air switch do? --I have an older GE wall air conditioner in an apartment---I hear water gurgling--outside --but there is no dripping--Thanks!


The outside setting is for bringing in the out side air,the closed keeps the air from the ac circulating and closes outside air off.The unit needs to be remove and took out side and cleaned out with a water hose,dirt and debris is keeping it from dripping out side,

What does the Vent/Pull switch do?


Vent allows fresh/outside air to be mixed in with the room air when you desire some fresh air instead of just recirculated room air only.

It is best to allow some fresh air when the temps aren't all that high, or when it's not too humid, or when you have a smoker in the room, otherwise the same old (stale) air keeps getting passed through the A/C.

If you keep the vent closed, your A/C will usually keep the room cooler, as it keep cooling the existing room air and can extract more moisture from that air, which is especially beneficial when it is extremely humid outside. In the most basic description, A/C is really just a dehumidifier with a cooling unit built in, which extracts moisture from the existing air and then chills it to make us people more comfortable.

Max air button does not respond


"MAX" ONLY puts the climate control in the RECIRC mode. Door modes change to " RECIRCULATE" interior cabin air back to be RE-COOLED, instead of using HOT OUTSIDE air to cool. If the problem is in the panel, complete replacement is required. Hope this helps

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).
