How do you know if your air conditioner in overcharged?
With refrigerant gauges we read the pressures and measure the temperatures, without that we look at the amp draw and what the air temps are going in and out,

The best answer is the one that's very properly maintained. It is unethical to say that one is better than the other, however, what ive heard to be the most commonly perceived is Trane, American Standard, Rheem,carrier,Goodman. It is very important to note that "Efficiency" should be paramount in yo…ur decision coupled with a GREAT maintenance schdule. (MORE)
Answer If the home electric supply is interupted momentarily the AC compressor may not restart because of the the high pressures still in the liguid line. The starting cap may be weak also. Under those pressures the compressor is presenting a dead short to the breaker box and off it goes. If this i…s too often for comfort - replace the starting capacitor, be sure the breaker matches the AC unit starting demand load, and whether anything else is wired to the AC breaker. (MORE)
There's a normal amount of condensation when a AC is running. If it's dripping on the floor, look for the white PVC pipe that is supposed to be there to drain it. If it's coming from inside the unit, call a repair person. If not, the water will rust and corrode other parts and you'll need to spend a… lot more money later by ignoring it now. (MORE)
Requires instruments and knowledge of the refrigeration cycle. Casual observation of a system, won't allow you to properly determine if it's overcharged.
LOAD CALCULATION, THE ONLY WAY . The only way to accurately determine the proper size air conditioner is to perform a load calculation. This is a process that takes into account the construction features of the home. These details along with other information is entered into a computer program. T…he program finds the heat gain and loss for the structure. With that data you can find the size required. (MORE)
An air conditioner or often use AC or air con is an appliance, system, or machine designed to stabilize the air temperature and humidity used for cool in the room as well as heating depending on the air properties at a given time. using a refrigeration cycle do help evaporation for comfort cooling i…n buildings and motor vehicles.

No ... their purpose is to transfer the heat from inside to the outside. No harmful chemicals are released to the air in this process unless the A/C system has a leak, in which it would no longer be cooling the interior of the space and people would notice that right away and get it fixed. Yes…! they do if they are faulty or the freon gas escapes when they are scrapped or not serviced correctly. Not to mention the coal, natural gas or oil used to produce the electricity needed to operate them. (MORE)
An air conditioner in a car uses quite a bit of power. It is notunusual for a car to hesitate when the AC comes on.
A casement air conditioner is an A/C that is taller than wide. Made for crank windows.
No. Freon is non-toxic, but one can suffocate from breathing Freon, just as one might suffocate from breathing carbon dioxide and not getting fresh air within 10-30 seconds, or so. Freon's lack of toxicity is precisely why it revolutionized refrigeration, particularly in the home, in the 1930s.
An air conditioner is any type of device that helps moderatetemperature indoors. An air conditioner does not have to be acooling system, technically a heater is also an air conditioner,though most people seem to only consider air conditioners(sometimes referred to as A/C units) machines that lower t…hetemperature to a user defined temperature. An air conditioner is a machine that filters/ventilates out hot airand cools the inside of a room or building.

If you are about to purchase a window unit, the answer depends on a few factors: 110/115/120 volt units are generally not available in the larger cooling capacity sizes. If you need to cool one average sized bedroom and have a 110 outlet near a window, this should do the trick, and you won't need a…n electrician to install new wires. If you need to cool an entire house, then you are going to need a 220/240 volt unit or multiple 110 volt units. If you are talking about a central system, then the furnas, or indoor section will most likely be 110 volt and the outdoor unit 220 and you will need to have it professionally installed anyway.

The air conditioner stinks when the coils gather dust and make water (condensate) and it becomes mold. what you should do is to change your furnace filter and clean it then spray the coils down with a weak bleach solution.You can use a wet-dry to vacuum the wet dust.
If it does what it is supposed to do, like cool the room when it is warm then it is working properly.
Air conditioner is a perfect device that helps to control the home environment. As hot summer days are approaching, owing air conditioner is essential for any private housing. The initial purpose of air conditioner is to cool. Today, we are witnessing revolutionary changes in air conditioning system…s on the market.

Here is the list. (MORE)
An air conditioner uses refrigerant to transfer heat from one placeto another, such as from inside the home to the outside.
Most of the time, this is caused by: a) a leak in your air conditioning system which leads to b) depletion of your freon (the cooling liquid that your A/C uses). Get a A/C service from your mechanic and ask them to check and repair any leaks.
by the process of heat transfer.freon in air conditioner absorbs heat from air,as boiling point of freon is too low.thus air cools
when the air does not comes out cold in your ac will be a good time
The way that you know if your ac in your vehicle needs to be charged is by checking the psi level on the ac system. You check the level with a gauge throught the low side port on your ac system. There is a great web site www.idqusa.com that has alot of helpfull information about your ac system.
Air conditioners do not pollute the air when working but it is at the time of manufacturing when refrigerant is filled. During dis process some refrigerant escapes to atmosphere and thus for every day around the world ac/fridge production causes huge damage to Ozone layer.
refrigeration processes which include condensation-evaporation of a refrigerant and compression in a compresser- expansion in a turbine or an expander. A simpler way to think of it is to think of the refrigerant as a sponge. It soaks up heat inside, and wrings out outside. If you've ever put you h…and over the condenser outside you'll notice the air is very warm. That is the heat from inside your house (MORE)
Reciprocating compressors work much like the engine of your car, in this case, there are pistons and valves that do the work. Low pressure vapor refrigerant is drawn in through the low side valve on the down stroke and then compressed (raising temperature and pressure) and pushed out the high side v…alve on the upstroke. Scroll compressors instead of having pistons have 2 spiral type plates. One plate is stationary and the other orbits around the other. This will create pockets of compressed refrigerant which though the orbital motion are forced to the center exiting through the discharge line. (MORE)
It is normal for air conditioners to cycle on and off when they are controlled by a thermostat. Air conditioners only operate in full "on" and full "off" mode, and nothing in-between. The thermostat senses ambient air temperature; if the temperature rises above the setpoint, it sends a signal to the… air conditioner to turn on, and the air conditioner will run as long as it takes for the ambient temperature to drop to a certain temperature below the setpoint. The temperature difference between the turn-on and turn-off is called the system hysteresis, and is typically 2Â°F, although on some electronic thermostats this value can be changed by the user. By making the hysteresis value larger, the air conditioning system will cycle less frequently, but run for a longer period when it comes on. Having a small hysteresis value may be important for comfort, to keep the room temperature in a narrower range. (MORE)
Air conditioners today serve many purposes for many applications, however the most common use of an air conditioner is to regulate temperatures in a controlled environment. Room temperature is about 70-73 degrees, so most deviations of that temperature would be regulated by an air conditioner usu…ally through the use of a liquid cooling system and a set of internal fans. On the other hand, some air conditioners have the capability of blowing hot air, in order to raise the temperature, like in a car for example. (MORE)
A sledgehammer You can destroy it by not maintaining it correctly or by letting it run low on freon and oil.......
There are quite a few reasons why an air conditioner could berunning but not cooling. One should first check the Freon lines andensure that there is an adequate amount of Freon available.
This function samples the indoor temperature for 2 minutes and then based on that temperature chooses the mode the unit will operate in. If the temperature in the room is more than 79 degrees it will be set in the Cool mode at 75 degrees. If the room temperature is 77 to 79 it will be set to the Coo…l mode minus 4 degrees of the current room temperature. If the temperature sensed is 73 to 77 degrees then the unit will be set in the Dry mode minus 4 degrees of the current room temperature. If the room temperature is less than 73 degrees then the unit will be set in the Heat mode. In the "I Feel" mode the temperature display disappears and pressing the "Too Warm" or "Too Cool" button will change the set point by 2-4 degrees. (MORE)
Apply an ammeter to the common wire of the compressor and turn power on. The highest peak amps are the LRA.
Here are the options : 1. Check your filter. If it is dirty and clogged, it might befreezing the compressor and also stopping the cold air to flowsmoothly to the outlets. As a result, you may not feel cool airfrom your outlet. Changing the filter will solve your problem. 2. The freon gas may not b…e sufficient in the compressor to coolthe air. This may happen if your unit is many years old, or thereis some leakage in your house of the cold air. Contact aprofessional to fill up the right type of freon gas. There shouldbe temperature difference of 20 degrees Fahrenheit, if there issufficient freon in the compressor. (MORE)
The simplest way of explaining this is as per the following. On your outdoor compressor unit there should be two pipes, one smaller diameter [high pressure] and a larger diameter pipe [low pressure]. Turn your A/C on inside the house and then shut off the smaller diameter pipe. Run the unit for a ar…ound 3 to 4 minutes and then check if the cooling is reducing from the unit inside the house. When you feel room temperature air [not cool] being emitted from the indoor unit shut off the larger diameter pipe and turn off unit. Isolate electrics, disconnect A/C piping and immediately seal the piping with good quality tape to prevent egress of dirt. When re-installing a quick purge of gas is usually only required to clear the lines if they were sealed properly and kept clean. Ideally running a vacuum pump is recommended but if care was taken then it may not be needed, as in many of my installations (MORE)
Yea, Please go through this site (Related URL) to see the line-up of their Solar Powered Air Conditioners. I got this reference from one of my colleague.
Simple. It is probably spoilt. You might want to get it fixed by a professional.
Yes. Refrigerant turns to vapor in the evaporator coil and returns to liquid in the condenser.
So the room will stay the same temperature. It does this when the thermometer drops temperature moderately.
If your air conditioner is not draining properly, it may be clogged. To remove a clog once it has occurred, attach a wet/dry vacuum to the drain line outside (removing the paper filter first) and suck the clog out. One simple home remedy to prevent future clogging is to pour a cup of household bleac…h into the line from the inside. Or check out Servicelive.com if you rather a pro to Repair AC Unit for you.

Low on charge or freon. Or a lack of air flow(fan motor doesn't work or the coils are blocked with dirt)
Breathing in or contacting the refrigerant (gas) is a health hazard. Some types of refrigerant-gases are highly flammable when exposed to an arc or an open flame. The question does not specify the substance that is leaking from the air conditioner.. (Is it water or gas. )
It doesn't have to be if you close the vents and turn it down to a warmer temperature.
Yes I have a room size air conditioner made by Panasonic model # CW-C60RU I would like to know what kind of coolant it needs
It will have two pipes one will be cold and one will be hot if one isn't hot or cold like it supposed to be it will be broken if one is hot and one is cold it is working?
No. You can not say it in a sweeping statement that whether or not the Muscle cars have ACs on them but what is known for sure is that Bugatti Veyron has it along with Air bags too. Many super cars from Audi etc don't have it to cater for superior engine performance. Hope that helps
Air conditioners keep the room cool by absorbing the heat inside the room and letting it out through the outdoor unit.In the process, Chlorofluorocarbons(CFC'S) are released. These CFC's cause green house effect (or) global warming i.e; warming of the Earth's surface(due to increase in nitrogen and …carbon dioxide and decrease in oxygen) which causes a great harm to environment.

you can either check that there is a smell if there is a liquid bottle in your air freshner than see if there is any liquid left
Yes! But if you're considering one, I recommend you go for a portable air conditioner instead of a central AC system. You won't have installation cost, they're much cheaper to purchase, much cheaper to run, and use less energy. Plus, you only have to cool down one or two rooms, wherever you are, as …opposed to an entire house. (MORE)
Air conditioners can include, or have added to them humidifiers however, the cooling function of an air conditioner tends to remove moisture from the air, de-humidifying it.
For starters, you'll get insufficient cooling from your system. Refrigerant changes states from liquid to vapor and back again in order to achieve cooling, and the system pressure is balanced to facilitate this - excessive refrigerant makes it much more difficult to do this. Additionally, your sys…tem will generate excessively high pressure, which will ultimately damage or destroy system components. (MORE)
discharge pressure is high, suction pressure is high superheat is low and subcooling is high.
If your air conditioner blows air but it's not cold air then you probably need freon in your air conditioner
Ultimately, the only real way to know for certain is to evacuatethe system, recover the refrigerant, and weigh what's recovered.Extremely high pressure on both sides of the system is a goodindicator of it, as well. If you don't have the means to recoverrefrigerant or a manifold gauge set and the kno…w-how to use it,cavitation (shaking) of the AC system when it's running is anothertelltale sign. (MORE)
