Heatman101, I am about to buy a one room HVAC unit for one large bedroom (14'x16') and my HVAC fellow recommended an Amana thru wall unit model # PTC093B35AE. He quoted $1200. What do you think of this unit? Is there a better one? Is that price a good price. Keeping Kool in NC, Jim

How do you make your old wall air conditioners blow refridgerated air again?


I'm pretty sure those work just like the AC unit in a home or car/truck/SUV. If they are low on Freon the cooling unit (compressor) will not engage...so the air that it IS blowing is just recirculated air (the air from the room). Try looking for a HVAC company in your air...see if they can give you a (free) estimate. If it's not the Freon, then it's possible it could be the compressor is bad.
Good luck!

What size bags does this shredder use?


Would you care to elaborate? Brand, model?

Here's how you can figure it for yourself, measure the size of the waste bin: length x width x height. Then divide by 1728, that will give you the amount in cubit feet. Then multiply by 7.48 (1 cubic foot = 7.48 gallons).

For example, my Fellowes measures 7.5"x16"x10.5"= 1260 cu in.
1260 / 1728 = 0.729 cu ft.
0.729 x 7.48 = ~ 5.5 gal.

If you looking to buy bags, check Staples website. They have all different sizes.

For the Royal I have in one of my bedrooms, I just buy a cheap brand of waste basket bags at the grocery store. Like them because they have a pull tie close and none of the little paper thingies liter the street when the trash truck comes.

Condensation dripping from ceiling in all electric home with no basement


The wall of the daughter's bedroom is NOT insulated. Moisture from normal activities (showering and cooking) within the house are causing the realtive humidity to be above 50%. When that moisture enters the wall or ceiling, the temperature drops below the dewpoint and condenses out. The moisture that condenses makes a nice environment for the growth of black mold which is highly toxic. The mold will spread by airborne spores. If you have return air ducts for your HVAC system in the room, the spores might be dispersed throughout the entire house, depending on how good you HVAC filter is. Note that if you have a swamp cooler on the roof, it could be leaking water through the ceiling and causing the problem.

You need to immediately move you daughter to another room and remediate the situation -- tear out all the drywall and anything that is damp or has signs of visible mold. Get the humidity in ther house below 50% with a dehumidifier. I would recommend the Winix 50-pint model (refer to link below). This will condition 1500 square feet, which is a lot, but you will need one on each floor.

Finding a suitable thru the wall air conditioner


Hi,
Not exactly....if you can half or more of the side vent exsposed then you will be okay...I like the side vent models because they are less prone to recycling the air...they either pull in the side and expell out the back or visa versa...
On the total back models all the air is just pulling and pushed out the back and they are prone to overheating in some wind conditions...the air just recycles...
Of course the main problem is that most people fail to keep their unit cleaned properly and that causes the overheating...

Amana thru the wall ac unit won't turn off


The adjustment knob on the unit does not turn down how do you get the knobs off? Can we replace the control unit with one that is touch control? Could the problem of it not turning down be the thermostat? It is an Amana PTC153A35AD wall unit.

Window or wall mount


The differance between a window and wall mounted A/C is the mounting system.
Window units are usually smaller BTU systems they set in the window, so you do not have to cut a hole in the wall to install it.
For a bedroom say 10 x 10 you can use @ 5000 btu it plugs into a standard 120 volt electric outlet. If the room is bigger then go bigger say @ 6000 btu or so. Take your room dementions with you when shopping for a unit. sometimes they have sizing on the side of the unit box.
Wall units are usually larger units. Like whole house 18,000 btu
they slide in and out of the case and use a 240 volt seperate circuit.
Best place to shop for A/C's are Home Depot, Lowes, Sams Club, B.J.'s, and Cosco they buy in large volumeusually give a Good deal I've seen 5000 btu units as low as $89.00
Just don't drop the unit out the window when installing it
From the second floor it will void your warranty. LOL
Good Luck Phil
