If you have two big ones the advantage is that you can use only one when the requirement is less and use both of them when the temperature is down.
If however both together will not throw much heat specially when the temperature is down.
Use this logic to decide

You need to call another service tech out. Looks like you need #8 wire for outdoor unit also need to have heat strips checked to see how it is hooked up. May want to consider contacting the heating and air conditioning state board for where you live and report this guy.

24' x 48' shop, insulated 1/2 mechanical, 1/2 wood working: Most economical heating long & short term ??


Re-post question and carefully say what you are doing.
Sounds like you are choosing system to distribute heat, and are debating hydronic baseboard heat, and electric blower.
Water or air hydronic systems are slow to heat, and pipes can leak but the system is not as intrusive as ductwork needed for electrically blown heat. Electric blower can heat space more quickly. Both systems needs to be designed properly to distribute heat correctly.

Okay couple questions here because either you have hot water baseboards or you have electric baseboard heaters.
- if the system is a hydronic baseboard heater fed form main boiler, usually this means your space heat is controlled by a zone valve which the zone valve is controlled by your thermostat.
-if you find the zone is controlled by a zone valve than it is possible the zone valve is defective causing hot water to bleed past the zone valve even though your t-stat is telling it to close.
- first find out what excatly the baseboard is heated by either water or electricity
-next personal message me and I can walk you through it

Compressor size


Square footage is how you determine what size of an AC you need, say two bedroom house with 1500 square feet would require a 3 ton unit but I would go to a 4 or 5 ton depending on brand and what you may do in the future, Like adding a bedroom or bathroom and how many people will be living in the house, a heat pump normally last longer the bigger it is and is more efficient than a smaller size. Just think like this, a 3 ton will run 30 minutes to an hour longer to cool the same space as a 5 ton so if the five ton does it 30 minutes faster it will not run as long. And when it has to pull down the temperature again it will do it much faster. So less run time means faster heat or cooling and less energy is used. I have found that the bigger units are made better and last longer as a general rule. And to understand the 3-ton and 5 ton let me say that it means how long it takes 3 tons of ice to bring the temperature down 10 degrees, the old BTU’s British thermal units. However the bigger the unit the more well built it is normally and the less maintenance required. 5 tons of ice would get it cooler faster. But one thing to keep in mind a heat pump is only good for 20 degrees temperature range, for instance if the high range is 80 then the low side would be 60 in order for it to be efficient so if you have it set in the house at 72 degrees on the high side and low side would be 52 degrees. But the larger the unit the less time it would take it to recover from the heat differential.

Kolin window type aircon shuts off by itself


This may be due to the size of the room. The master bedroom may be smaller than the living room? The unit is therefore reaching setpoint temperature and cycling (shutting off)? Or it could also be a faulty thermostat.

Linear equations


This question is strangely worded and does not pertain to floppy drives. However, taking all information here as given and sufficient enough to form the equations, you arrive at the following:
X=Y+60

60(3.25) = 195 One tenant must pay $195 more for his extra 60square ft.
(975-195)/2=390 The remaining rent (assuming the given info is all that is needed to solve)
390/3.25=120 is divided between the two and represents the rent of the smaller bedroom.
y=120 sq ft The rent of the smaller room holder is divided by $3.25 to reach the sq ft.
so,
x=180 sq ft

Goldstar Window A/C Unit Model GWHD5000


I recommend that if you have animal and you want to have the unit on all day that is fine if you have an ac unit with a thermostat and it is big enough to handle.  The unit that is in the window is ok if your home but it could cost alot if there is no thermostat because it will run and run and run.  Then if it don't cool the house enough means its not the right size.  The unit / compressor could overload and kick on and off and might not work when you get home and the house will be like a firecracker.   Best bet would be to replace it with a unit for the size needed for the apartment.  It would be effecient. if we can help further just let us know.

Need wiring help with Fahrenheat PLF754 240V baseboard heater with Fahrenheat PT2DS double-pole thermostat Open kimono - I know enough about electrical wiring to be dangerous. I have a Fahrenheat PLF754 240V baseboard heater and a Fahrenheat PT2DS (also known as Marley T2) double-pole integrated thermostat that and the heater isn't working. My power supply is a single cable with white, black, and red wires. I traced the supply line back to the circuit panel and found that the red and black wires terminate on a DP-40A breaker. The white wire is grounded. The heater has 2 red wires exiting a center tube at the end of the heater where the thermostat goes and 2 black wires exiting a small cut-out near the top of the same end. There's also a green ground wire from the heater. The thermostat has 2 red wires on the left top and bottom, 2 black wires on the right top and bottom, and a green ground wire. An electrician friend of mine (since left town) installed the wiring, heater, and thermostat for me. It worked fine for about 1 year and then stopped working. I'm trying to troubleshoot the problem but don't have any documentation on how this thing should be wired or how I might isolate the problem to the thermostat, heater, or both. I did verify that the power supply is good. Everything is currently wired as follows: Black power supply to black thermostat (top) Red power supply to black thermostat (bottom) One black heater to red thermostat (top) Other black heater to one red heater Other red heater to red thermostat (bottom) Green heater to green thermostat White power supply not connected - just wire-nutted Can anyone confirm this is the correct wiring for this configuration and, if not, what it should be? If this is correct, how best to isolate the problem? Thanks!
