If you have a good thermometer, place it near, preferably right in the path of a return air grille (typically located on a wall). After a few minutes, record the temperature. Then put it right in front of the grille that is blowing air into the room. Again, record the temperature. There should be between 18 and 20 degrees F between the 2 readings.

If the inside and outside fans are running and the filter is clean and the outside coil is clean and not blocked by plants or fencing, you likely have a charge problem.

But wait, is there ice on the tubing near the inside unit, or outside, on the larger of the 2 pipes? If ther is ice, shut the unit off, let it thaw and recheck your filters, your fan. If you set your thermostat to 60 and it was cool last night, you may have iced your coil.

If filters, coils and fan are ok ... less than 18 degrees between the 2 grills, you have a leak somewhere and need professional help.

Make sure the outdoor fan is running and check your air filters. Also make sure the indoor and outdoor coils are clean. If all is good then get the refrigerant charge checked.

Why does my heat blow warm air then it turns cold

its VERY likely that your heater core is getting stopped up.

The heater in your car works by circulating hot water from the engine into a copper or aluminum pipe coiled up in the dashboard. The heater/airconditioner's fan blows across it and the hot air comes out of the vents. This is why the heater doesn't work right away when you first start the car. It usually won't work until the hot/cold needle in the gauges is starting to rise up.

If your mechanic recently replaced the thermostat, its possible that there is air in the system which will result in less antifreeze in the car than it should be. If this is not the case, the heater core is probably stopping up and will require expensive replacement if it cannot be flushed clean.

Check to make sure the car is full of antifreeze IN THE RADIATOR, AND THE OVERFLOW JUG. Please be very sure there is NO AIR in the cooling system as well.

Simple way to make AC run more efficient and save on electric bill

With the heat of the summer many air conditioner are working hard and running up electric bills. Many old air conditioner would have dirty evaporator which blocks some or most of the air going through it. This make the system run harder since it cannot cool the house as it should. This causes the AC system to run continously without ever shutting off.
There is a new product on the market avaible at most AC supply store to clean the evaporator coils that do not need rinsing. It desolves mildew and other things that causes blockage. Make sure also that you change your filter regularly.

If your airconditioner has been on for a long time and does not shut off, you are wasting power. Turn the thermostat up just enough so it will turn off. Setting the AC lower will not make a diffrence in the temp when the wheather is hot since the system is not able to reach the desired setting because that is as cold as it is capable of. One degree of in setting can mean a lot over a whole month period. The rule of thumb is keep it above 75.

Does the vw polo 1.6 Comfortline Air-conditioner need a fuse

Not sure whether the fan comes on automatically with air con or not... but if you manually turn the fan on, the vented air should be cold. If not, your air-con system sounds like it needs re-charging. This is not expensive and most decent service centres have the facility. Hope that helps.

Engine cooling fan only works when ac or defrost is on

if engine at long stand still,the engine temperature will rise about 190 degrees the cooling fan suppose to automaticaly turn on when coolant temperature sensor get hot it cause its resistance decrease causing pcm to send power to coolant fan relays and cooling fans, when you turn on AC the cooling fans suppose to turn on to cool down AC CONDENSOR, IF NOT AC WONT WORK COOLING FAN COOLS DOWN REFRIGERANT SO IT CAN RECYCLE THROUGH THE SYSTEM AGAIN.your cooling is suppose to turn on when engine at a sit still if vechicle not moving as coolant temperature rises at a set point the cooling fans will turn on cool down engine.cooling fans dont turn on when you first cold stsrt vechicle unless you have AC SWITCH ON.if cooling fans dont turn on when vechicle at a long stand still or moving along slow traffic.if coolant temperature sensor been replaced and fuses and relays okay have dealership check see if pcm driver circuit working faulty pcm will cause cooling fans not to turn on.

AC not working cold enough

Good thing you didn't add over. My friend is a mechanic and he says that the ac chargers you can get at any auto store are just going to mess up your car. (cause most people over fill them) he says go to a shop and let them get a recharge in it and to fix the leak if there is one.. It wouldn't cost you more than 100 dollars. And that is the best solution and safest.

My air conditioner stops cooling. Occasionally, it will just function on fan mode even though I confirm that it is on cool mode. Warm air comes out even on the absolute coldest setting. I have to turn it...

If after reset the A/C cools then the fault seems related to the thermostat or the cut off pressure switch or load cut off.
However is there is no cooling at all the compressor and the gas pressure- check for leak if gas is absent.- must be checked .
If compressor is suspect you must check the estimate and decide whether it seems better to scrap and buy a new one.

Airconditioner is on all the time now, but frosty ice is forming on the coils. The air coming out then becomes cool, but not cold and then we have to turn it on to fan in order for the ice to

most airconditioners will have a cutout or something called a defrost cycle, which turns it off for a while to let the ice melt. And if you run it flat out all the time this may happen too (happened to me in Thailand once, so I just turned it on when I was in my room - and it worked much better)
If it has just started doing it, the recycle timer may need repairing
