Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Our Masterbedroom (downstairs)does not get enough cooling or heating eventhough the a/c and heater are working fine to adjust temperature in the larger living room. The air blown through the duct is low in the master bedroom. This is the only room that has issue in our house. I am not sure if each room has its individual fan blower?

    I have a two story house, the heat/air does not flow very much to most of the downstairs vents. The upstair will get very warm, and the down stairs not at all. The difference in temp is 15 to 20 degrees.Same when I use the a/c in the summer (downstairs doesn't cool). I don't know if dampers are installed...When I call a service man all they want to do is sell me a new unit ( this one is old but blows warm and cold, just lacks balance in the vents).

The air takes the path of least resistance.What you need is a balance.there should be some dampers in the round pipe of each heat run.restrict the ones going to the livingroom about half way....this will force more air to your bedroom.

My upstairs temperature is 80 degrees and the downstairs is 69 Honeywell focus pro th6000 is set at 69. Why is the upstairs so drastically hot?unit is located upstairs& thermostat is downstairs


if there is no control of air movement between floors and you have it on cooling then any cold air will go down to the lower floor
or alternately if you have it set on heating all the hot air will rise to the upper floor
where is the system located (upstairs or down stairs ) and where is the thermostat located
to get control close any upstairs to down stairs doors or erect a heavy curtain across the stair well

Dyson hot and cold fan only works in hot mode


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

When you adjust the target temperature of your Dyson Hot fan heater (shown on the LED display on the base), you're setting the target temperature you would like the room heated to. The actual temperature of airflow produced by the fan heater will not vary.

If the heater won't run below 25 degrees, this is likely to be because the temperature of the room you're in is equal to or warmer than 25 degrees. The heater will only turn itself on if the temperature drops below 25 degrees, and once the room temperature reaches this target once again, the fan will turn itself back to monitoring mode.

I've attached our Getting started video below which shows how to adjust the temperature, using the remote or the controls on the base.

I hope this makes sense. It sounds as if your machine is working correctly, but if you'd like any further advice from our experts you can reach us at 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

No heat when stopped for traffic


1-your thermostate is stuck open half way. thermostate is a simple device that made of enlarging metals when heat is applied. it suposed to be in close position to allow engine heat up, when specified temp reached it opens and let it flow and radiator tries to keep coolant cool.when it is broken it stucks or it acts slow or it wont acts at all. in your situation it is stuck open half way. it allows enough water to be heated but flow is limited to heat cabin heater.

2-if there are cabin heater selenoid/selenoids for two different temperature for cabin left and right, on some instance those selenoid valves to adjust cabin heater stuck open or closed like thermostate acts on first case. so heat is not enough to heat up cabin heater.

Upsstair shower doesn't supply continuous hot water, downstair works great. Water pressure problem?


It could be a water pressure problem but most water supply companies put out enough pressure for a 2 story house (or even 4 stories) easily. Can you clarify what you mean by continuous? Does the water get cold, on and off (i.e. no hot water) or does it vary in temperature mildly?

Not enough heat


Take an Amp draw on all heaters and compare. If within 5%, they are working fine but you may have more open area downstairs than up.

I have 2 Thermostat's in my home. My heat works well upstairs but not downstairs. My thermostat downstairs won't come on but I unhooked the thermostat from downstairs and tried it upstairs and it worked...


Hi, sounds like you determined the problem is not with the thermostat. That leaves the furnace that serves downstairs. What type heating system do you have?

Morning, I have a 2006 dodge stratus sedan. When I turn the heat on only cold air blows when the car is sitting at a red light. But when I drive hot air blows. Is my heating element going out?


Water-cooled engines supply heat for the passenger compartment by circulating hot coolant through a radiator-like heater core. The passenger compartment fan forces air through this heater core and into the passenger area. The flow of coolant for this purpose can be controlled with a valve in the line that is adjusted when the heat control is moved or via a flap that blocks or opens the air path through the heater core to adjust temperature.
The effect you describe can be caused by several different sources:
- A slipping belt which turns the water pump. - A partially collapsed hose in the circuit for the heater, causing a reduction of water flow to the heater core. - A heater core internally blocked from deposits from the water component of the coolant. - A valve which is not being adjusted through its normal range by the dashboard control. - A flap suffering the same limitation as above.
Another effect our personal vehicles generally show with age is caused by abnormally low engine friction attributable to a particular additive we use that reduces engine friction so much that the thermostat that controls coolant/engine temperature is wide open but the engine doesn't heat enough to bring the coolant temperature into the normal operating range. We notice on two of three vehicles, that rolling on a long downgrade (engine not loaded) will cause the engine temperature to drop below its customary operating temperature.
If you have a dashboard temperature gauge, watch it to see if it rises into the middle of the range or not. If not, there may not be much you can do other than flush the cooling system, making sure that the heater control is set to its highest temperature to ensure that the heater core is in the loop while flushing.

The heater is blowing warm (not hot) air


This could be your thermostat. If the thermastat is stuck open the coolant will not build up enough heat. When the coolant reaches your heater core it has not been superheated by the engine because your radiator and fan are contiuously cooling it. I would change the thermostat. That would be a good place to start. I hope this has been helpful.

HEATER ISNT HEATING UP THE ROOM ENOUGH


It sounds like the space is too large for the BTU capacity output of the unit.

Did the unit ever heat the space?

Have you measured the temperature of the incoming air, vs the discharged air?

And finally, based on the Model number in the heading of this thread, this unit is cooling only, no heating (it's not a heat pump).
