Hello,

I would advice you add freon on the air conditioner because when such device is low on freon, the cooling rate will be reduce drastically, also, in addition, i suggest you get the air pressure pump to blow both the surface and inner part of the air conditioner because when dust are clog on the surface, it affects the cooling, with this, i believe the performace should improve.

Take care and thank you for contacting fixya.

Hello,

Just get any small air pressure pump that you can use to vacuum the coil and both surface of the air conditioner, you can get it at any electronic sales shop.

Take care.

### Equlvalent expression

Assume that the room are rectangular.
Let W be the unknown width of the dining room in feet
Area of living room= 10*12=120 ft^2
Area of dining room =10*W
Combined area= sum of the two areas= (120 + 10* W) ft^2
Alternatively, you can factor out the 10 to get
Combined area =10*(12+W) ft^2

### Can I hang a mirror in my dining room? What effect will it have?

You can hang mirrors on the wall by your dining room table. When you have guests, it will create an illusion of a very full house, adding warmth to the dining room area. If you light candles at the table, they will be beautifully reflected in the mirror.

### We have a very small dining room space, but would still like to put a dining room table and chair set there. Can anyone suggest the best way to furnish a small space like this?

The best dining room table shape for a room with limited space is a round table. You should look into finding one with an extension leaf if you have enough space to open it. Try looking for a table where you can fit more people around it by purchasing one with a pedestal base. This leaves more room for your guests legs without the legs of the table getting in the way.

### My air conditioner works but does not cool . i have added freon the last two years and fixed the problem ,did the same thing this year but did not help .

When self adding freon after it leaks out you get air trapped in the system. After adding freon a couple of times the air expands not leaving room for the needed freon. To continue adding freon with air tapped will knock the compressor out pretty quickly, there's not enough room for both & the air is keeping the freon from being able to cool properly give the false indication of being low on freon. The freon you are adding has the dye added to assist in finding the leak since freon does not evaporate nor dissipate it its being leaked out. A black light will assist locating the leak. The best thing is to have the unit checked & serviced by a mechanic...he'll charge about \$ 150.00 to check for leaks, remove the old freon...his machine will tell him how much air its trapped in the system by how little freon is removed. For the service fee he will replace valves & gaskets, where needed, correcting most leaks. After sucking the system down & recharging the problem should be corrected.

### I'm looking to purchase a Rudd 2 stage model, 16 SEER, 5 ton along with a 100000 BTU 95% furnace. I have a two story home and will only be using the 1 AC. Will the Rudd cool both floors?

Assuming that there are ducts ran upstairs and downstairs, it all depends on the square footage of the living spaces, i.e. bedrooms, living room, dining room, etc. You need an average of 1 cfm per sq ft. For every 1 ton of air, you have an average of 400cfms. So your 5 ton unit will cool/heat 2000 sq ft. A 16 seer unit with a 95% furnace is a nice buy and you will notice the difference for sure. Hope this helps!

### Different outlet went out after installing dimmer.

It's possible that he living room outlet feeds through the dining room switch and that a wire may have become disconnected when you put in the dimmer. I don't know the specifics of you home layout. If the dining room and living room are on different circuit breaker switches, this is not the problem.

### A layer of ice forms on the unit. Checked & replaced thermostat

here's the deal. unless you have a license to purchase freon you can't. Most likely the unit contains r-22 freon unless it was made before I think 1987 if made before then it is more than likely r-12. The reason appliance techs do not want to do this is because of the intensive set up in orderto access the system to add freon. they have to weld connections to access the freon and in such small areas it can be a massive pain. I would contact Whisper cool and see if they have any service centers in the area where you can take the machine for repairs.

Good luck hope this helped

### Controller (s) not working

Someone used the pull chain on both units. Whenever you install a remote or wall-mounted dimmer, it's always best to cut the chains short (after setting the fan to high) to prevent someone who doesn't know any better from using them.
