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)
It depends on many factors, including the size of the room, how insulated it is, and what sources of heat gain are present.
Answer . No, the refrigerant is odorless but the oil lubricant might smell a little. Typically, if there is an odor associated witht the AC system it's caused by mould build-up in the evaporater coils. That can happen if the AC is run in a humid area and the AC is always or almost always run in …"recirculate" mode. When the air is constantly recirculated the mould builds up. Outside air can help prevent the odor, but won't necessarily stop it once it's started. For future reference, you should use the "recirculate" or "Max" setting only when you first start the car and it's really hot and you're trying to get it down to a tolerable temperature, then switch over to normal.

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.
Modern air conditioning emerged from advances in chemistry during the 19th century, and the first large-scale stationary electrical air conditioning was invented and used in 1911 by Willis Haviland Carrier. A company in New York City in the United States, first offered installation of air conditi…oning for cars in 1933. Most of their customers operated limousines and luxury cars. The Packard Motor Car Company was the first automobile manufacturer to build air conditioners into its cars, beginning in late 1939 (at the start of the 1940 model year). These air conditioners were optional, and cost US$274 (equivalent to about US$4,000 in 2007). The system took up half of the entire trunk space, was not very efficient, and had no thermostat or independent shut-off mechanism. The option was discontinued after 1941. The 1953 Chrysler Imperial was the first production car in twelve years to actually have automobile air conditioning, following tentative experiments by Packard in 1940 and Cadillac in 1941. Walter P. Chrysler had seen to the invention of Airtemp air conditioning back in the 1930s for the Chrysler Building, and had ostensibly offered it on cars in 1941-42, and again in 1951-52, but none are known to have been sold in the latter form until the 1953 model year. In actually installing optional Airtemp air conditioning units to its Imperials in 1953, Chrysler beat Cadillac, Buick and Oldsmobile which added air conditioning as an option in the 1953 model year.

A split air conditioner works by placing the evaporator indoors andthe condenser outdoors. This keeps the exhaust heat from enteringthe building and interfering with cooling.
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. Air conditioners comein many varieties, ranging from wall-mounted units to portableunits. (MORE)
The air conditioning system was made to provide a cooling effect tothose who were uncomfortable in the heat and humidity. Back in thedays, it was used for the same purpose it is now used for.
I have the same problem. Refrigerant is low due to a small leak in the system. They came out and added refrigerant to my system and it worked fine. Now after a long power outage (hurricane IKE) I am having the same problem. It appears I have a small leak in my system and need more refrigerant instal…led! (MORE)
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.

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
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.

As of now, Air conditioner uses R22 refrigerant. In coming days ACs will come with refrigerants such as R410A, R407C etc.
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.
