Vulcan Comfort Control Central Heating unit - Our heater is situated outside and is ducted under the floor and operated by a remote control. When we activate the remote we can hear the unit starting up and have also witnessed the glow of the pilot light starting but the heater fails to start. I have had the technican three times and they cannot diagnose a problem - we have no heater at present - please help

sounds like the thermocouple (that sensors the heat) may be faulty.
you will need a licensed gas fitter for repairs

The control panel gets its power from the central heating unit's power point. Try turning the power off outside at the powerpoint next to the ducted heating unit and try turning it on again after a few seconds, see if it resets

of course it depends on the type . Gas or electric . were we there able to see it . perhaps we could be more helpful . turn off electric at the mains turn off the gas at the outside shutoff . and lock both in the off position . it depends on where you live if you are required to get permits to do this also . or if you have to hire professionals .

How do i deal with the dripping of water from my Mitsubiishi split system from inside unit? Will putting the unit on 19 and then turning it full bore clear over condensing?


NO
the water is condensation from the humidity in the air turning to water on the cold evaporator core
normally it drips into a tray and drains away outside
if it is inside ( running down the walls it indicates
the drain hole and tube is blocked or the evaporator core is covered in gunk and holding the water up and not dripping where it is designed to
Call an accredited ac specialist shop to clean the fins and drain tube

I need to know if a mercury thermostat is bad will it allow the ac to come on but not the heater


need to know what thermostat you are referring to
the coolant thermostat has no connection to the ac system
if it is the ac thermostat the it maintains the cabin temperature by activating the ac compressor as required
if you are referring to climate control then that controls the heater flow to keep the ac temperature at a set temperature with the ac compressor operating all the time
so as an answer to you question , check the climate control module

Why does my home A/C unit result in a constant stream of water coming out of the overflow drain? I've had the same unit for 5 years, and it seems that it drains water in ever-increasing amounts. Als


Sounds like it is freezing up. Kind of hard to say since you did not say whether it is a central heat and air system. My overflow was constantly draining onto my patio from overflow. I crawled up in the attic and followed the pvc pipe where it came in from the outside and closer to the central unit in the attic I drilled a hole in the 90 degree elbow of the pvc and unclogged the pipe which was frozen from running so long. Then I covered the hole with silicone. no more leak coming from overflow

How do I fix my electric heater


  • sounds like the sensor or bulb that tells it to start the blower is defective/ im not familiar with your unit but this seems the most logical answer most furnace will not turn the blower on right away usually 90 seconds after the ignition but will also run longer to exhume any dangerous carbon monoxide. Electricic heaters are different. What type of unit do you have

Why can't I lower my honeywell 8500 below 67 on cool?


With a two story house you have to be aware that cold air flows downwards so any cold air coming from an ac unit will flow downstairs( normally down the stairway) so unless you can close off the down stairs then the up stairs unit will be cooling downstairs as well. Ac units have a thermostat located in the air intake and it cools until the cold air has risen to that point. In effect the space above the ac unit will be hotter than the floor. Knowing how they work ,you can see that the upstairs unit will never reach the set temperature because the cold air is continually heating from the house and will never get to the top thermostat.
So your solutions are
1-- fit controls that restrict the cold air from leaving the upper floor (Doors)
2--don't run the upper ac unit unless you are living up there (waste of money
)3 place an ac in each upper room and keep the room door closed

A/c fan not working=thermostat is working(central a/c system)a/c


The fan on the outside unit is powered from it's 240 volt source. Check that the breaker for the outside unit is not tripped. Also, a contactor is inside the outer unit that starts the fan - it may be faulty.
