What type of wire to connect air conditioner to house?
The AC condensing unit needs two 24 volt low voltage control wires, the high voltage will be 220 - 230 volts and requires 3 wires , 2 hot legs and a ground. You can buy pre made whips as they are called cheaper than making one.

What is wrong if your Rheem air conditioner won't start and you took the w wire and connected it to the RC wire in the thermostat and the unit does a clicking sound but won't start?
Answer . Put the w wire back to where you got it.\n. \nNow take a volt meter and determine if you have power between R and the common terminal (usually a blue wire or the C terminal). If you have 24V there is no problem with the tstat. You now must check the condensing unit(the one outside), …and check for 24V. If you have voltage, check your breaker box or the outdoor disconnect box.\n. \nYou cannot leave the w wire on RC. What did you do with the RED wire that was on RC? (MORE)
Answer . If you have to ask this question, you should not be doing this job.
Answer . Try a ductless AC system from Mitsubishi or one of the other brands.
Answer . Check your furnace fan. The air conditioner unit can be running but the air circulation is usually done with the fan on the furnace. If you have a fan switch on the thermostat, check to see if it is in the auto position. If it has the settings on/auto/off, you can switch it to the on… position and see if you get any air movement then. If not, you could have a broken belt. (MORE)
Hi, The wiring diagram is no problem but you didn't say what typeunit or model number? Are we talking heat pump, split system,package system, strip heat and etc. Goodman is as good a unit asanybodys in my humble opinion. They are also very bargain pricedwith easy service features and readily availab…le replacementcomponents at just about any A.C./ Heating / and Appliance PartsStore. Goodman has a web. site as well so I suggest you go to itand find out whom your local dealer/distributor is so you can getwiring diagram if you've lost yours that came with unit. Goodman isalso very good about putting a wiring diagram somewhere on theinside access panels of all their units so be sure and look therefirst. (MORE)
When connecting 10 3 wire to a air conditioner disconnect should the white wire be caped or grounded?
Answer . The white wire is neutral. If you need 110V at whatever this is supplying you need to connect it to neutral (Not ground). If you only want 220V you can simply cap it with a wire nut at both ends and leave it unused. If you can connect it do neutral, do so. The next person will expec…t it to be neutral and it is better to have it tied to neutral than floating.. If in doubt, go to your local home improvement center and buy a book. It will teach you how to do it legally and will serve as a handy reference during the job.. Finally, I will add do it right or don't do it at all. If you are negligent you could easily kill someone through fire or electrocution. If you read and do your homework and learn what it required you may find that small electrical repairs can be quick and easy. If you can't understand what you need to do hire an electrician. The cost of a professional is not worth the time you will waste if you don't understand what you are doing and the danger therein. (MORE)

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)
Answer . Check your policy and call your agent or insurance company. Find out if you have coverage for an AC, the type of damage caused by leaks and if there is a deductible. If the air conditioner is still pretty new, check your warranty and talk with the store you bought it from.
I have a unit with a SN GV351271. I need a wiring diagram for this unit.
If the air conditioner is on but not cooling the house properly,you may have a leak in your duct work. A leak would allow all ofthe cold air to escape, blowing into the outdoors instead ofcooling your house.
You can contact the manufacturer. If its a window unit that the plug is missing there are terminals inside where the cord used to be. Black is hot, white is neutral and green is ground. Check the nameplate on the unit to make sure of the voltage and current draw (amps).
very very few 62's had air conditioners from the factory installed but I think GM used frigidare back then.
Put a large plastic trash bag over it on the outside of the house and secure it with duct tape.
Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz power supply service. . Not sure of what is meant by "3 wire house including red wire". What it sounds like you have is a 3 wire feeder cable. White common neutral, black (one circuit) and red (second circuit). What this allows the electricians… to do is take two separate circuits to a single location. Once at the location one of the circuits can be used only for receptacles and the other circuit for only lighting. Back at the electrical panel the 3 wire feeder will be fed with a 2 pole 15 amp breaker. Without a more descriptive question I don't know what you want to do.. . As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed. . If you do this work yourself, always turn off the power at the breaker box/fuse panel BEFORE you attempt to do any work AND always use an electrician's test meter having metal-tipped probes (not a simple proximity voltage indicator) to insure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized. . IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS. . (MORE)

Roughly 1 ton for every 400 sq feet if there are no abnormal heat gains. Get a Manual J load calculation done prior to purchase to be sure.
I hate to say it this way, but very carefully. If done improperly, the airbag can deploy, causing very expensive damage. This is not an area of the vehicle to tinker with while not having familiarity. Seek an experienced professional's help. The cost will be worth it. Additionally, air bags are depl…oyed by a charge of gunpowder. If your body or face are in the way when the airbag accidentally deploys, it can KILL YOU. If this warning doesn't get the message across and you still wish to attempt the wiring yourself; then re-read to post. Disconnect the battery before doing any work on an airbag system. Wait five minutes after battery is disconnected before starting any work on an airbag system. Vehicle doors and windows should be closed with nobody inside the car; THEN and only then should the battery be reconnected. Sit as far back as possible when starting the car for the first time. If the airbag warning light is on or flashing, turn the car off immediately and have it towed to a professional shop to have the work done correctly; like you should have done in the first place.

Return air vents in each room (none in bath or restrooms) sized for the amount of cfm needed for that specific room are best but if this is not possible then pick a central location and return vent should be sized for total cfm required of house.
Because something is wrong. I can`t tell you what because any number of things can cause this. Basically the a/c units capacity and the houses cooling load have become imbalanced.
The electrical code states that the only place that the ground wire comes into contact with the neutral wire is at the distribution panel. All other circuits connected to the distribution panel require the ground to come back as a separate wire. No where in the field wiring must a neutral wire conne…ct to a ground wire. (MORE)
The first 'modern' car A/C was the 1954 Nash Ambassador. The Nash had invented their 'Weather Eye' ventilation and heating system in about 1940 and it was above the hood like today's cars. They bought out Kelvinator Refrigerator Co. and in 1954 added a refrigerated air condition system to the weathe…r eye and used an electric clutch plus controls to regulate the cooling and heating.

No it is not a standard practice. That said you will find such a connection from a light fixture junction box, that has the supply source in it, down to a a light switch junction box. The neutral for the light is already at the light junction box but the switched leg has to go down to the switch. Th…e black "hot" wire is connected to the white wire in the cable going to the switch and from the switch it returns in the black wire in the same cable which is then connected to the light fixture.

The only connection to be made in the meter box is the incoming wires from the utility company and the wires going out to the main disconnect in the distribution panel. These wires have no fusing in them except for the primary fuse on the step down distribution transformer. These fuses can be over s…ized up to 600 percent of what they need to be. This is to stop needless tripping and since the utility company is not governed by the electrical code they are free to do it. The loophole that allows this is the fact that they are on call 24/7 and if anything goes wrong they will repair it. Now back to the meter connection. If the air conditioner connection shorted out in the meter base the short could draw up to 10,000 amps, depending on the internal impedance of the transformer, before the primary fuse opens up. This would create a lot of heat and burning would probably occur. Use the proper size fusing on the feed from the distribution panel to the air conditioner. (MORE)
Never looked under the hood of one, but there's a pretty universalmethod for finding the schrader valve. Locate your AC compressor.There'll be two metal refrigerant lines going into it - one will besmaller - that's your high pressure line, and it'll go to thecondensor. The other, larger line, is the… low pressure line, andthat goes into the compressor inlet. Follow that one back until youfind a schrader valve located either on that line or on a componentwhich is a part of the low pressure side of the AC system...usually, it'll capped with a blue plastic cap, but those often getlost. You'll know it's the right one because it'll be the only oneyour refrigerant can (or blue line of your manifold gauge, if youwant to do it like a pro) will fit on properly. (MORE)
For USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service. 10-2 wiring is good for up to a 30 Amp 240 volt Air Conditioning (AC) unit. That answer assumes the A/C is to be installed in a residential installation, because the service voltage is 240. The length of wire-run should also… be factored-in when deciding the correct wire size. To get the right answers refer to the Wiring Codes or Regulations for your locality. (Town/State.) As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.

Old units used R12 or R22. New units use R134a. You shouldn't need to buy any refrigerant (not "refridgerant") for a window air conditioner, as these units are hermetically sealed at the factory, just like refrigerators and freezers, and typically won't lose gas for their entire service life. If i…t is no longer cooling properly, the coils may be dirty and in need of cleaning, the condenser fan may have failed, or some other component may have failed. If the unit is over 10 years old and has been used heavily, the compressor may simply be worn out, in which case it's time to replace the entire air conditioner. (MORE)
I would love to answer that question, however the question you pose is better left to someone trained in legal matters.
This should never be done by anyone other than a trained electrician. You run the risk of injuring yourself, or worse.

If you have a 4-wire receptacle it is likely 240 Volts and one would hope that you are connecting a 240 V AC unit.

If you have a 220 V AC then you need to co…nnect to the two Hots to get 220 and connect ground to ground. If your AC was 120 V you just need one leg of 240 V so you would connect to Black, White and Ground. (MORE)
Need to know the year of manufacture. 1995 or newer will be R134A. 1991 or older will be R-12. 1992 - 1994 will most likely be R-12, but may possibly be R-134a. If your vehicle is pre-95 and you're not the original owner, I'd recommend that you take it to a shop and have them perform a refrigerant… purity test. Many R-12 systems were later retrofitted to R-134A, and this cannot be determined by visual inspection, since these systems usually retained the R-12 schrader valves even after conversion to R-134a.

Yes, a skilled professional would be able to install the proper duct work for central air conditioning in your existing home. Check in your area for a reputible business.
Yes, a central air conditioner can be installed in a house that currently uses room air conditioners as long as there is a place to put the fan outdoors.
A 3.5kW Air Conditioner is probably only sufficient to cool one room. It should be okay for something like a bedroom or small living room, depending on the ambient temperature.

Yes but you are just wasting your money as all the cool air will be going out the windows.
Every single outlet and light socket in your house is in parallel with every other one, and also with all the outlets and sockets in the homes of several of your neighbors . . . all of the houses served by the same pole transformer.
When I look for wiring diagrams for air conditioners I try the manufacturers web site. But you can also try searching the model and make on google or the like and see if it is available on other sites if that doesn't work.

It depends on how well the house is insulated, how many windows it has and on which side of the house they are on, pluse whether they are single pane, double pane, etc., and where the house is located (Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, Northwest, it all makes a big difference). A load calculation sho…uld be done on the house to determine the heating and cooling loads. The better the house is insulated, the less heat gets into the house so there is less to remove. An oversized unit will not run long enough to reduce the relative humidity. Humans like a comfort zone with a balance of temperature and humditiy, of say about 75 degrees with 50 percent relative humidity. The lower the relative humidity, then the higher the temperature can be and we will still be comfortable. Contact your local electric power supplier and see if they provide energy audits or do load calculations for free. (MORE)
This is mainly due to the leakage of outside air into the air-conditioned space.

Air conditioners are not designed to emit any electromagnetic radiation. If an old one does, it's usually in the form of radio waves, coming from the unintentional sparking inside an old motor, and causing raspy noise in nearby AM radios.
