Is this a 110volt unit or a 220 volt unit? Is this a central or window unit? but the way you describe the cleanning, must be a window unit! there is suppose to be 2-sounds from this unit ,,,1--the fan blowing sound,,,,2---the compressor humming sound.! the compressor kicks in by the thermostat control knob, turn this to the highest setting &listen for the compressor to kick in. if not the compressor is not pulling in..(burnt wire, bad capicator, locked compressor, bad thermostat switch, ) but don8t let that scare you, just have someone to check it out,,or let me walk you through the troubleshooting process,@ koolbreezes74401@yahoo.com... did anyone tell you window units are called the"throw-a-way " type?

Why isn't it cooling the room?


A few months ago my air conditioning unit was having cooling issues too. However, the mechanic that came and fixed it said that it was because we constantly blasted it and kept the temperature really low. How cold are you trying to keep your room? Sometimes it has to do with the system freezing up from trying to keep it too cold. Air Conditioning in Chetek WI Stellar Heating Solutions

How a Central Air Conditioning System Works
amn_howac.jpg


Facts:
  • The typical central air conditioning system is a split system, with an outdoor air conditioning, or "compressor bearing unit" and an indoor coil, which is usually installed on top of the furnace in the home.
  • Using electricity as its power source, the compressor pumps refrigerant through the system to gather heat and moisture from indoors and remove it from the home.
  • Heat and moisture are removed from the home when warm air from inside the home is blown over the cooled indoor coil. The heat in the air transfers to the coil, thereby "cooling" the air.
  • The heat that has transferred to the coil is then "pumped" to the exterior of the home, while the cooled air is pumped back inside, helping to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
  • Central air conditioning can also be provided through a package unit or a heat pump.

Benefits:
  • Indoor comfort during warm weather - Central air conditioning helps keep your home cool and reduces humidity levels.
  • Cleaner air - As your central air conditioning system draws air out of various rooms in the house through return air ducts, the air is pulled through an air filter, which removes airborne particles such as dust and lint. Sophisticated filters may remove microscopic pollutants, as well. The filtered air is then routed to air supply ductwork that carries it back to rooms.
  • Quieter operation - Because the compressor bearing unit is located outside the home, the indoor noise level from its operation is much lower than that of a free-standing air conditioning unit.

Tip

Keeping your whole home cool with central air.


Sometimes it is difficult to keep your home cool in the hot summer months. Also, some areas of your home may still be hot where other areas are too cool. Try this method to keep your home cool evenly throughout. Before you get started make sure your furnace filter is new. This will allow for maximum air flow.

If your living space is a single floor plan:

  1. Turn the air conditioning on
  2. Switch the furnace fan from auto to on.
  3. Measure the temperature in each room.
  4. Close the vents by about half in the cooler rooms
  5. This will force more cool air into the warmer rooms.
  6. Keep adjusting the vents until all the rooms have the same temp.

If your living space is on more than one level:

  1. Turn on the air conditioning.
  2. Switch the furnace fan from auto to on.
  3. On the lowest level of the house close half of the vents that are the closest to the stairs.
  4. This will force more cool air to the top floor where it is usually hotter.
  5. Cool air will sink from the upper floors which will keep the area near the stairs cool.
  6. Measure the temperature in all the rooms.
  7. Keep adjusting the vents until you have a nice even temperature throughout the house.
I found that leaving the furnace fan on all the time will keep your home evenly cool and comfortable. You may have to replace your furnace filter once a month due to the increased air flow. It will be well worth it in a cooler, more comfortable, and more energy efficient home.

Take Care,

Portable Air Conditioning great portable air cooling


Portable air conditioning offers you the convenience of mobility. All you have to do is roll the portable air conditioner to the room in which it's needed. Install an exhaust hose out a window or other opening (everything you need is provided) and turn it on. The installation process for these units is very simple. These portable air conditioning units are built small enough to be very mobile and are supplied with wheels for easy movement. A portable air conditioner will also work very well in apartment situations where you will often find a window unit is unacceptable.

Portable air conditioners are very unique in that they are portable and can be easily moved to different locations in your home or business. They can be a highly effective way to either help out an existing HVAC system in one room or cool a single room entirely. They are also one of the best ways to cool a room or area without having to install a window mounted unit.

These air conditioners use a compressor and Freon to cool just like normal air conditioning. They are very effective in cooling rooms and to keep the humidity low. Like normal air conditioners portable units extract hot air that must be vented. That is why they need to have the exhaust hose to the outside. These units can cool air as well as air conditioning done with window air conditioners. However they do not require installation like conventional window air conditioners this makes them very convenient for seniors or physically challenged people. Most portable air conditioners are supplied with a window kit. This kit contains exhaust hoses that will work in any window: double-hung, casement, awning or slider. Because they vent through an opening like a window they require no permanent mounting like window air conditioning.

Portable air conditioners are a very good cooling option for those who can't use the more conventional air conditioning methods. Remember though that this type of unit is not as efficient as most window units or conventional air. So while they may make your environment cooler, it won’t turn your tent into a room at the local hotel.

So as you can see these air conditioning units have some great advantages over other types of air conditioning. They are a great alternative for unique applications where central air or conventional window units are either unfeasible or too expensive. During special events, portable air conditioning can also be a great way to keep guests or equipment cool and comfortable. Always be aware though that because portable air conditioning will remove moisture from the air, they will also need to be drained occasionally similar to a dehumidifier.

Does your application warrant a permanent air conditioner of some form or should you just use a portable one? There are some interesting things to consider when making that choice. Weigh out all of the different options and make that decision based on what will best suit your needs.

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM TEMPERATURE OF COOLING


most home air conditioners go as low as 18 c but this low setting achieves nothing but a high power bill
the purpose of air conditioning ( air conditioning -- to condition the air) is to remove the humidity ( water vapour ) form the air and allow the body to perspire more freely and so is by the evaporation of the perspiration of the body water that cools the body
this evaporation is hastened by the fact that the water vapour in the air is very low due to the air conditioner operation of conditioning the air
Now knowing this fact it is obvious that all the windows and door should be kept closed ( to remove the humidity from the room /house and so a setting of 25-26 c is sufficient to keep you cool
because the temperature difference between outside air and room air is low the air conditioner cycles less frequently and costs less to run
if the room setting is at minimum and the atmospheric temp is high then the air conditioner is running virtually all the time
so instead of asking what is the minimum temp you should be asking what is the optimum temp run to be conformable and to save on power costs

Blows very cold air during dehumidify mode.


se this fact: God bless you
air conditioning system cools but does not dehumidify the room. The most common cause of inadequate dehumidification by an air conditioning system is the installation of a cooling unit which has too much capacity, or is "over-sized" for the space it is being used to cool. What happens is simple:

If an air conditioning compressor unit is oversized (too many BTUH of cooling capacity) what happens is it cools the room so quickly that the system does not move enough total volume of air across the cooling coil to remove much moisture before the room temperature has dropped to the A/C cut-off point.

In other words, an air conditioner needs to run longer, and move more total volume of air through itself to drop room humidity than it does to just cool the air. So "bigger" cooling capacity or higher BTU capacity for an air conditioning system is not necessarily better, and it can actually be a problem.

The heat sistem is not working well is working but 30% of eficency than it was working beafore.It hear like water on it ..help im frezzing


Air conditioning real definition is not giving cool but removing heat from the room. In same way for heating, it's not heating, removing cool from the room. When your indoor coil, air filter and blower wheel are full of dust, you won't get even 30% of cool or heat depend on your selection.
Simple solution for your problem is clean indoor unit completely. Check all sensor is working well. In heat mode keep temp minimum +3 degree than room temp. thanks and helpful.
