Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I had a pthp installed in my sunroom. I use this room as a family room ....tv, family visiting,etc. The unit is too loud and I'm not sure if it is large enough to heat the 15' x 18' x 12' cathedral ceiling and 3 glass walls. I would like to put a natural gas fireplace in this 42.25" x16.25" opening in my wall. Is that possible? Any information will be appreciated. Thank you, Peggy

You might put in gas logs or an electric log :-P. You could consider a Ductless mini split too. These are quiet and efficient.

SOURCE: how large a room does a 10,000 btu air conditioner cool

What size unit do I need for my room? 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 this helps please vote me a fix ya

Underfloor Radiant Heating for Your New Sunroom


You want to add a brand new sunroom onto your existing house. The problem is that you are not sure how to heat it. Electric heating with baseboard heaters will spoil the look that you want from your new room. Hot water baseboard is going to present all types of problems getting hooked in to the existing system and piping it. And, if you have hot air heating system then you will have the problem of getting ductwork to the room. There is another way to heat this room easily and efficiently.

Radiant heating has been one of the most comfortable and efficient ways for heating for many years. The problem has been in the past to find a good heating source for small radiant floors that will be affordable, effective and efficient.

This problem has been solved now, with the availability of small new electric combination heater- circulator units. These units use small electric heating elements together with a small circulator pump to give you a all in one heating source and circulator pump.

Now you just have to lay your tubing in the floor of the room you are adding on to your house. Then you run that tubing into your existing basement or other room in your house. The tubing and the electric are attached to the heating unit. Then, wire a thermostat to the unit, and you are now ready to make heat. This really makes heating a new addition room very inexpensive and easy to do.

The greatest thing about using this type of heating system is that most average do-it-yourself types can do this. All that is needed is a basic knowledge of plumbing and electric.
If you are thinking of building that little add-on and are worried about how you will heat it, think about using radiant floor heat and a small electric heater-circulator to do your project.

Why does my PTHP. shut off and switch to electric resistance heat?


im guessing its there way of defrosting the coils , as with this type (small) its tough to defrost the coils in an efficient way , hp runs normal to within one or two degrees of setpoint , hp shuts off or reverses in low speed , back up heat comes on to complete the room heat and to generate the heat needed to defrost the coils , entire unit shuts off when set point is reached , reversing valves set for heat and wait till next cycle

now mine does something slightly different : it runs for fifteen minutes and if set point is not reached it switches to back up and reverses the coils ,leaves compressor on (low speed) , this heats the coils up and defrosts the outdoor unit , and if it runs long enough twenty minutes total time , it goes back to normal and aux heat shuts off . this drives me insane thinking how much im spending on heating the outside !! but im sure its needed to prevent ice build up on outdoor coils ,and I sure don't want that cracking with ice formations

We have this air conditioner in our sunroom. From


I would replace the thermostat.

First - be sure and un-plug the Air Condtiioner from the wall.

When you 'select' the temperture I am assuming you are doing this with a 'knob' of some sort. This knob will be part of the thermostat - therefore it (t-stat) should be simple to identify.

Note: On some - LED/Electronic units - it may be difficult to identify the thermostat.

If, however, you can easily ID the t-stat - then you will have to dismantle the AC unit enough to get to the thermostat; it will be installed on/in the unit with screws of some type.

When you find the thermostat -- simply take the wires off the connections (these are usually - 'female' type spades that slide over 'male' type connections on the switch.

When you remove the wires be sure you mark them in such a way you can replace them on the "correct" terminals of the new thermostat without getting them mixed up.

It will be essential that the new thermostat - (A) physically fit the slot that the old one did, i.e. you can re-install it as the old one was and - (B) that it will have the connections you need - in order to connect your wires correctly.

If you take the old thermostat to an Air Conditioning Supply house they will probably be able to sell you an exact replacement - but in any event - an appropriate replacement - that will work.

good luck!

Having trouble with heat pump.


It sounds like there is a problem with the blower....either the motor itself, the capacitor, a wiring problem or a control problem. If there is a warranty on the unit, have a tech check it out for you.

Let us know if this helps. Good Luck! :-)

Installation


Kyanne: Follow this steps to do your installation: 1. Locate your installation place (Living, dinning, family room, etc.) 2. Check power outlet source to be close to the unit. 3. Make sure that behind the wall you're going to make the hole there's no plimbing or electrical connections. 4. Make the hole on the wall as precise as the dimensions of the extrior frame of your AC. 5. Insert unit in place and secure it with brackets. 6. If hole is bigger than expected, there's always some harmonic plastic covers for the sides. If the gap is in lower and upper part use some duct tape and paint it with similar color of wall to cover imperfections. 7. Connect AC to power outlet. This is something in general, ok? But if you intend to do it anyway, please use protective equipment for your own safety like gloves, safety glasess, etc. SithPitt
