Why does the air conditioner leak water from behind the unit. My air conditioner is placed in a wall and the back end of the conditioning unit sticks out inside the garage. I have ventilation by...


It is normal for an air conditioner to leak water out the back. This water is actually the humidity being taken out of your house. Being vented out in to the garage is always an issue with condensate water. I have seen some people take a funnel and run a hose outside the garage somewhere. Keep the vent closed. It will be harder to cool the house with the vent open because it lets outside air in to the house.

Open vent or closed vent


The vent open draws in a small amount of fresh (outside) air to mix with the air being recirculated in the house to provide an air exchange. The vent closed will circulate the air already in the house.

In most cases its a good idea to leave it open unless you have a drafty house or find it difficult for the air conditioner to keep up.

Is it good to close the vent or have it open


Hi,

The vent will bring in outside air while running. If you are use the cooling keep the vent closed for the best performance.

If you are just using the fan only for air circulation and it is mild outside you can open the vent for fresh air to be pulled into your home.

Just wanted to find out if the vent should be open or closed when air conditioner is on..


If you are talking about a whole house ducted system, it is best to keep all vents open.
If you are talking about a window air conditioner, the vent is mainly intended to bring in fresh air, usually people keep them closed, unless you are just running the fan only and want to bring in cooler fresh air, like in the early mornings.
If this has helped, please rate me, or contact me back with any further questions that I can help you with.
Sincerely,
Paul Gibson

Furnace blower won't stop running


Usually when the furnace blower motor runs all the time
The limit switch or rollout switch is usually open or bad.
The furnace board is seeing that one of those switches is open, so it brings the blower on to try to get the heat out of the combustion chamber area, so the switch will close. But if the switch is bad and won’t close, the furnace board will keep the blower running continuously.

Quick Question


It has been my experience that the vent lever opens a small flap allowing some of the air in the blowers air stream to vent to the outdoors - not something you would use in the cooling mode since it "dumps" your cooled air. If you wish to use the unit as an air mover/exchanger, you would operate the unit with this vent open.

Air conditioner line freezing up


Check to make sure the filter inside the air handler is clean and that no vents are closed or blocked by furnature or rugs. Check the air handler to see if the blower is operating. You could have a belt off, the door switch could be in the open position or something simple like that. If this checks out OK., you will need to have a technician check the charge
