When was the last time you checked your filter? Suppose to be changed every 30--90 day , depends on the type of filter .If you remove the filter and the same low air flow, then the dirt and dust went to far and need a full serviced on your system. (koolbreezes74401@yahoo.com.)

I need a vent part


Any HVAC or refrigeration parts houses sell vent supply. Some hardware stores and home depot/Lowes also. Get some info from what you have. 3" or 4"ect. Hopefully a tag or sticker is still on it somewhere. Or take good pictures of how it connects to the next piece of pipe. The all fasten different.

HVAC or Air Conditioning System Noise


Ever wonder why your <span style="font-weight: bold;">air conditioning system</span> is so makes so much more noise than other systems that you see? Do you have to turn up the volume on the TV when the A/C starts up? Do you have to more to another spot in the house when you are on the phone because the air started to blow? I will offer some suggestions as to how you can <span style="font-weight: bold;">make your air conditioning system quieter.</span><br /><br />The main thing that you need to identify is that the noise is coming from the <span style="font-weight: bold;">air moving through the vents</span>. Then make sure that the vents are not broken or partly closed. If they are partially closed then you need to find out if they are just closed by mistake or to<span style="font-weight: bold;"> balance the system.</span> Remember that if you close some of the vents then the air moved by the blower will have to be<span style="font-weight: bold;"> forced out </span>of the other vents in the system. If there is too much air for the remaining vents to handle then they will become noisy. Sometimes there just simply is not enough space for the air to get out because there is a <span style="font-weight: bold;">shortage of vents installed in the system</span>. I have seen many systems that are this way because the <span style="font-weight: bold;">contractor chose to skimp to cut costs on the installation.</span><br /><br />Another place that many contractors chose to cut costs is in the <span style="font-weight: bold;">balancing dampers</span> that should be installed in the takeoffs from the main trunk lines of the ductwork. The absence of these dampers forces you to <span style="font-weight: bold;">balance the air flow with the dampers in the floor or ceiling registers</span>. This restriction at the point of entry into the room makes noise and is very annoying. Simply<span style="font-weight: bold;"> installing dampers at the correct location</span> so that the branch lines can absorb the noise will solve that problem.<br /><br />As you can see there are some things that can be done to <span style="font-weight: bold;">eliminate noise</span> that comes from your <span style="font-weight: bold;">HVAC system.</span> If your contractor tells you that there is nothing that can be done about your noisy system keep on looking till you find a <span style="font-weight: bold;">competent contractor</span> that can help you find the source of the problem and correct it. Your system does not have to wake the dead forcing you into all kinds of inconveniences because of the noise. With proper planning and the proper amount of supply and returns with dampers in the right locations, you can have a very <span style="font-weight: bold;">quiet and comfortable system.</span>

Why my a/c unit wont blow hot air


Is it simply an AC or is it HVAC? If just AC it'll only cool but if HVAC and no hot is escaping through the vents towards your face then i'd call an engineer round to have a poke with a screwdriver...

My wife and I just purchased a home built in 1900. It has two separate HVAC systems, with a package unit downstairs, and a traditional compressor/furnace combo in the upper. Most of the windows are in need...


With that large of an opening I would inspect the blower and as much inside the unit as I could get to as there is no telling what might have gotten in there and is obstructing air flow. I would remove squirrel cage and blowere motor and clean thourghly,clean burners and exhaust as best you can.
In thirty years in hvac and plumbing you wouldn't believe some of the things i've found in furnaces and ductwork. Cleaning and serviceing the blower motor should help.
Best of luck to you and your wife and hope this helps you. Thanks

We just turned on our central air conditioner last night. today the temp of the house was 80 degrees. someone in the household placed the tempature on 70 degrees cool on auto. we have not felt any air...


Did you hear the indoor unit running (the fan blowing)? If so, there's a good chance that either the filter is plugged or more likely, the evaporator coil is iced up and preventing any air from flowing into the dwelling.

This points to a refrigeration issue with the unit - possibly a leak or low refrigerant charge.

You should turn the A/C off and leave it off for a day. Then just turn the indoor unit fan on by selecting the fan "on" setting on your thermostat. If you feel air coming out of the vents, then the evaporator coil was probably frozen.

If you are not an HVAC tech, it's time to call for professional help.

My A/C evaporator is freezing up, and wont cool the house below 85 degree


Check your filter and make sure you have one in place and it is clean. This is either a low inside airflow problem or system is low on freon. If you have strong air flow from vents and filter is been kept clean then low freon is most likely. Run system in on position with cooling off to make sure ice is melted. When water stops draining. then restart system . If it starts frosting up at outside unit shortly after start up it most likely is air flow. If you don't have at least 15 degree drop from registers in a few minutes and indoor humidity is not too high inside and airflow decreases and air gets colder just before it freezes up then it is low freon.

Keeps freezing up


Two things will cause freezeup.

Lack of airflow.
Low refridgerant.

Lack of air flow could be due to :
dirty filter
Dirty coils
closed vents
Evaporator fan not operatriing properly. (also known as blower in HVAC units)
