Could be several factors. Let me start by saying the unit you have should cool a room that totals around 450 square feet (Approx.).

If you do not know your rooms square footage just multiply the width of the room x the length of the room.

(e.g. 20' x 10' = 200 SF)

The above 450 SF is for a room with typical 8' ceilings. This is also a "Rule-Of-Thumb" measurement, as windows, doors, insulation, and air leakages (heat gain) also play a role in calculation of heat loads. But this will get you close....

If the room is larger than 450 S.F. in size then the unit is too small for this size room.

A rule of tumb for sizing is: every 600 square feet requires a ton (or 12,000 BTU) of cooling. Again, without doing a proper load calculation on the room or area being cooled, it is hard to be exact.

The other possibility is the unit is not operating as it should due to mechanical or other issues. This is hard to specify. COuld be refrigerant levels are low, coils dirty, or filter dirty.

My Continental Portable Air Conditioner only blows partially cool air and will not cool my house. I am I just expecting too much? It seems like it needs freon or something like that.


Unless your home is less than 400 square feet, total. You are expecting to much. As the maximum cooling output is only 9800 Btu's These unit's despite being portable, they are only considered as room air conditioners, because of the low Btu output. Any more than 400 and maybe 450 square, it's a struggle for the unit to cool any more than that. It just simply can not do it. Freon ( which has been banded by the EPA) wouldn't help at all.

The best option for you, is to place the unit in a room you spend most of your time in and close the doors to that room, so that it will stay really cool and the AC unit won't struggle.

I'm really sorry. I wish I had better news for you.

The ambient temperature in the room is to high.
Try lowering the room temperature. If that doesn't work
get a small fan and place it near the projector ro provide
extra cooling. The projector is running border line on
high temperature and just needs a little extra cooling.

Our brand new kitchen aid oven will blow hot air for up to a half hour after it has been turned off. This seems unusually long- what is the expected time of cooling off?


Hi,
That depends on the ambient temperature in the room..if your room is fairly warm you can expect it to take longer then if the room is cool...
I would say though that 1/2 hour is pretty normal...it is good to get the unit cooled down, the less time it is warm the longer it will last... heat kills ovens...even though they are made to take heat...

Turning room thermostat down, doesnt cool room


You have a safety switch switch on your system that is opening and locking your system out, not allowing it to come on. This is telling you that there's a problem with the system and it needs to be checked out.

Hello, I can assist you.

If the unit is supposed to turn off and it doesn't, it will be necessary to check several things.


  • First, is the unit cooling properly? See the section entitled "The air is cool but doesn't seem cold enough."

  • Next, is the temperature of the room adequately cool? If the room temperature is cold enough try setting the thermostat to a higher temperature. If the unit then seems to work properly leave the thermostat set to the higher temperature.

  • If the unit is cooling properly when it is turned on and the room is not cool enough the problem is probably that the unit is trying to cool an area that is too large for its capacity. 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 the room size is too big for the air conditioner you have two possible choices. Either decrease the room size by shutting some doors or partitioning off an area of the room. Or, increase the BTU of the air conditioner for that room by installing a different air conditioner with a higher BTU rating.
