Make sure that the outdoor unit is on. If it is on, then check to hear if both the big black compressor is running as well as the fan. If both are running then feel the fat copper pipe that comes out of the unit. If it is not cold and sweaty then your system is probably very low on refrigerant. If the line shows evidence of icing, it could still be a little low. Although icing can be the result of 4or 5 other problems as well.

Here is what you need to do to make sure your system is charged correctly go to the furnace take the temperature of to supply temp and take the return temperature at the furnace. You should have 18-20 degrees temperature difference if your return temp. is 77 degrees you should have 57 to 59 degrees. If you dont have these temps your system either wasnt cleaned properly or not charged correctly. If this helps please rate me and do a testimonial.

I have never used central ac before - how do I set it? If it is on 75 will that cool the house? If I want it cooler, do I put it lower? like 65?


As to your question 'will 75 cool the house?' The answer is 'yes' - if the outside temperature is low enough. Typically speaking you can expect your central AC to cool a properly insulated house to a down to a temperature of about 20-25 degrees lower than the outside temperature. For example - if the outside temp is 95 degrees. You could expect to get your house down to 70-75 degrees. If the outside temp is 110 degrees then you could only expect to get the house to 85 or 90 degrees.

So .. as you can see - your 'inside' temp will be directly affected by the 'outside' temperature.

As to the operation of central air; it is very simple.

I would suggest that you not pay 'too much attention' to what you have the thermostat set on. A comfortable temperature - is a personal thing - so - I would set it somewhere - say 72 and see how I (and others in the house) was handling that setting.

If you want it 'cooler' just 'notch' it down a degree or two - if you need it a little warmer - turn it up a degree or two. Do this "fine adjusting" till you have the temperature setting you are comfortable with.

Usually the more you can leave your thermostat alone the better off you will be from a comfort position and an electrical useage standpoint. Obviously, the higher you have your thermostat set the 'less' it will cost you on your electric bill.

How high you set the temperature is a balance you have to come to based on how comfortable you want to be - matched with how much you want to hold down the electric bill.

hope this helps

I think you may have 2 problems. Thje outdoor fan not coming on would cause the compressor to either go out on high discharge pressure or internal overload. Either the fan is bad or the capacitor is bad or both, which can be replaced.
The second problem is either the unit froze up on you and for the short time that it will cool before it quits. You may want to make sure you cool speed for your indoor unit is set to hi cool speed which is usually black

My split type airconditioning unit is not consistent with its cooling system..its automatically shutting down its coolness..what to do?


Hi, make sure you have a clean filter. Wash the outdoor units condenser coil, as they will get dirty and cause it to shut off on high head pressure. Turn off the power first. Careful not to use to much water pressure as you don't want to bend the fins. These are things you can do. Other than that, it takes a qualified tech to go any further. Check these things and keep me posted. The temperature between the return air at the filter and supply air temperature is between 18 to 25 degrees F. This is called your T.D.or temperature split. Keep me posted on what you find.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

My aircon unit turns on runs for a minute then indoor and outdoor unit switch off


If this is a LG Airconditioning unit.
It has reached the set parmeter of the safety switch point.
1 The unit could be running on too low refrigerant charge and cuts out on low temperature on the indoor unit coil (-5°C longer that 30sec switch off)
2 The unit might be drawing to much current, to much refrigerant, cutting out on high pressure.

Check the refrigerant charge and check the indoor pipe temperature thermister (calibrated at 5kΩ @ 25°C)

Central A/C takes a long time to cool house


The system should be either R-22 or R-410A
You need to go outside and feel the suction line (the big line) with the unit running, after the house is cooled down, it should be cold and sweating,if the humidity is not to low, if it is your unit is probably ok. High Effeciency units
usually have a higher suction pressure and temperature and can run longer, if it's sized right. After the house is pulled down to temperature and starts cycling, it should come on and go off about 3 times per hour. The longer the unit runs the more dehumidification it should do.

My central ac system occasionally runs too long and the temperature gets way too cold. The digital thermostat reads that the temperature is too high so the ac still runs. This doesn't happen all the time...


I have seen this is many digital thermostats. The worst problems usually come from the touchscreen thermostats. I would suggest installing a new thermostat. Make sure that you read the instructions before you even remove the old one.
