Question about Haier Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Haier Air Conditioner, 6,000BTU (I believe) and my room is about 150 sq. feet living room with No door. Instead of a door we have a curtain (which is supposed to be cool/heat insulated type). However it has about 30"x15" on the top of the curtain that is only covered by a plastic sheeting that I purchased at a hardware store which they told me would help insulate. I also put that around the window where the AC is located to cover any cracks. The problem is the room is taking very long to cool. I don't know the average time, but I started it today at 9pm (86 degrees the unit read) and it now says 83 degrees at 11:30pm. Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Chris

Hello,

If the unit is working properly it should cool the home. Is your filter clean? Look and the evaporator in the inside unit. Is it frosted up? Do you have condensation water in the pan? Go to the outside unit and feel the air coming out of the fan. Is it warm? Now feel the 2 copper pipes coming out of the unit. The problem could also be that you device is low on freon and will need to be refilled.

Take care.

I have a Maytag window unit and i am trying to find out how many btu is has. right now it is in a small room and i want to know if it will work in a bigger size room. MODEL M6Q1OF2A SERIAL CR 264327...


that is a 10000 btu unit and a good rule of thumb to go by when 'sizing' a unit is 12000 btu for every 600 sq ft of cooling space (if the place is well insulated) or 400 sq ft (if not well insulated).
So, you have a 10000 btu unit which is 5/6th of 12000 btu - so - can reasonably expect that unit to cool approximately 500 sq feet.
In other words the room it's in now could be only - say - 300 sq feet (and well insulated) - in which case the AC unit is cooling it - well.
However, if you try to cool a 800 sq ft room - it will not work as well.
Hope this has helped.

Not cooling room


Assuming the unit is 'cooling' but not cooling it 'well,' I would think the unit is too small.
NOTE: 2000 Btu for every 100 sq ft of cooling space if the room is well insulated. If not - then 2000 btu for every 66 sq ft.
For example - a 12000 btu AC unit should cool 600 sq feet of cooling space if well insulated.
or
400 sq feet if not well insulated.
hope this has helped.

My landlord installed this brand new out of the box. Our apt is 900 sq ft tops. This unit can't even cool down our living room and kitchen. If the whole 2 bedroom apt is 900 sq ft, you can imagine how...


The AC your landlord installed is rated at 8000 btu which is way too small for 900 sq ft. You need at least a 15000 Btu Air conditioner and a 'well insulated' house to be cool.
A good rule of thumb in the AC business says you need 1 ton (12000 btu) of Air conditioning for every 600 sq feet (if the house is well insulated) - if not - then you will need 1 ton (12000 btu) for every 400 sq feet.
So, if you have 900 sq feet and the house is well insulated you should have at least a 15000 btu unit.
If it's not well insulated you will need 24,000 btu.

Haier room air conditioner doesn't cool maximally at "Hi AC"


You should have at least 5,500 BTU's for that size room. Clean the filter. Turn it on and let it work for a few hours.

How large a room does a 10,000 btu air conditioner cool


What size unit do I need for my room? Use the following chart to find the appropriate size air conditioner to use:

AREA TO BE COOLED / CAPACITY (BTU/HR)

100 to 150 square feet = 5,000

150 to 250 square feet = 6,000

250 to 300 square feet = 7,000

300 to 350 square feet = 8,000

350 to 400 square feet = 9,000

400 to 450 square feet = 10,000

450 to 550 square feet = 12,000

550 to 700 square feet = 14,000

700 to 1000 square feet = 18,000

If the room is heavily shaded, reduce needed capacity by 10%

If the room receives a lot of direct sun, increase needed capacity by 10%

Add 600 Btu/Hr for each person in the room if there are more than two people

If the unit is for a kitchen, increase the capacity by 4,000-6,000 Btu/Hr.

if this helps please vote me a fix ya
