An air conditioner is a device which uses a special type of substance which readily changes from its normal gas state to a liquid one (Typically freon or another refrigerant such as R-20 [chloroform] or R-134 [tetrafluoroethane]). The gas is contained in a closed circuit of pipes connected to a pump…. The pump compresses the gas so hard that the pressure is great enough for it to turn into a liquid. In doing this the gas/liquid has got hot (If you try to compress a gas, it will almost always get hot - think of a bike pump when you pump up a tyre (tire), the greater the pressure in the tyre, the hotter the pump gets). Now the hot liquid travels round a set of pipes which allow the heat to escape. Next the liquid under pressure passes through a valve into a pipe where the pressure is much lower, and the liquid evaporates back into its gas state. In doing this it needs to take in heat from its surroundings, thus making the pipes colder. The gas now gets back to the pump and the whole cycle starts again. The pipes are usually arranged so that there are fans to blow air over both the hot part of the pipes and the cold part. The hot part is frequently put outside the house, and the cold part inside. This is called either a 'split pack', or a 'twin pack' depending on which country you are in There are also portable versions which have both parts in the same box, with the cold air blowing out of the front, and the hot air blowing out of a flexible hose which you put put outside the room to allow the hot air to dissipate.

Answer . By taking the car to an A/C repair shop. Not a DIY job.
You need to have a system performance test performed on the vehicle. If it turns out to be a leak, and the system needs to be opened up in order for parts to be replaced, you'll also have to replace either the receiver-drier or the accumulator (which one you'll have depends on whether or not you hav…e a fixed orifice tube system or a thermal expansion valve system).

Does having solar panels on your house make it hotter in your house in the summer resulting in more air conditioning usage?
Probably not, if the solar panels are installed properly, there will be a convection space in the shade beneath the panels and on top of the roof, which could shade the roof and reduce the amount of heat transmitted to the attic. . Hi:. Ditto to the above reply, I would just like to add that thes…e things properly installed and in favorable areas are a big plus. I do recommend you purchase quality products and follow their instructions completely.. Check out your area and its ability to perform well as a solar energy cell type envioronment before you invest in anything but a good profession reference book.. Be sure you ask questions from someone knowledgable and not someone just trying to hawk their wares. Try the Federal Government and its informative materials and data on what you wish to try. YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY!. I have personally seen more people sapped into buying things that are not even a good idea for their areas in first place. One example would be a wind turbine that produces backup for solar cells where the wind norm is well belowe its design.. One last comment would be this: Though your area may have lots and lots of hot sun you still may not have a good area for solar cell use because of the avg. moisture content and such as that ( which would disperse the directness of the suns light and therefore damper its effectivness). Hope this helps: Jimiwane (MORE)

Air conditioning is the dehumidification of indoor air for thermalcomfort. In a broader sense, the term can refer to any form ofcooling, heating, ventilation, or disinfection that modifies thecondition of air. An air conditioner (often referred to as AC orair con.) is an appliance, system, or machin…e designed to stabilisethe air temperature and humidity within an area (used for coolingas well as heating depending on the air properties at a giventime), typically using a refrigeration cycle but sometimes usingevaporation, commonly for comfort cooling in buildings and motorvehicles. a system for controlling the humidity, ventilation, and temperaturein a building or vehicle, typically to maintain a cool atmospherein warm conditions.

There is air, of course, surrounding Earth, because it was placed there, but any of the elements that combine to make an atmosphere have dissolved or dissipated out into the vastness of space.
consult your aplliance documents, if you dont have them, googleyour model and make or visit the manufacturers website.
First of you need to define "Air Conditioning". Literally it means the conditioning of air which could be "cooling", "heating", "humidification","de-humidification or any combination of these. The inventer of cooling was Willis Haviland Carrier(http://inventors.about.com/library/weekly/aa081797.htm …) which if you noticed the last name is also the same as one of the largest companies dealing in HVAC/R .

I think you are asking about "standard" air. It is 80 degrees F. dry bulb, 67 degrees F. wet bulb. (about 50% relative humidity). 29.92 barometric pressure. its a specific case! In common, design condition of air condition depend on velocity air, temperature ,humidity, type of space condition air. y…ou can refer on ASHREA. (MORE)
For 'solar power', solar panels that produce electricity you need daylight (the sun needn't be direct). There isn't really a second condition although many factors improve how much electricity is produced by the panels: Orientation: Better performance will come from mounting the solar panels to… face the sun, and at any angle to the ground. The best angle depends on where you are on the earth. Also, the array of panels should also face the same direction For example, half the system facing south east, and half the same system facing north will degrade the performance of the whole system. Shading: No shading at all accross the whole system will improve performance. To put it another way, if you were to shade a quarter of an array of Photovoltaic panels, then you will degrade the performance of the whole system. No shading at all is best. System sizing: If the system is to provide AC power to a house, then the number of panels need to be well matched to the inverter or inverters. The better the match the higher the effieciency of the whole system. (MORE)
Question is too vague to provide a proper answer. Is the air conditioner compressor working? Have you checked the fuse? First off the question was formed using the word VENTS and an action word (VERB) BLOW then the word AIR is not a vague question at all. the asking party did not inquire as… to why the air is warm, but to why there is none at all. Bad blower motor, bad capacitor, systems power switches all on, are you positive that tstat is calling. Upon initial diagnosis I would check DO I HAVE 120 volts @ the primary side of the transformer, IF YES continue with diagnostic, IF NO verify that there is voltage coming from the circuit breaker and all wires are connected, switches are all closed IF YES breaker will need replaced (this is very uncommon as breaker shows in on position but there is no measurable potential between L1-L2 on board ) I continued with diagnostic. IF 120v is established at transformer and transformer is working correctly you should get between 22-28 volts on secondary side (this is where the power supply for R comes from ultimately off of and into circuit board, should you not get any voltage thru secondary then transformer is bad and needs to be replaced) THE next step is to make sure all switches are closed and passing continuity, are there any switches or fuze's wired in series that are open, can you actually turn motor by hand is it tight, or does it grind or wobble. Next I would check the Capacitor's Microfarad's as well as see if the motor is pulling hi amperage when comparing to blower rated amp draw door, if motor fails to turn while energized it will still try to consume the energy in the windings of the motor and show a significant amp flow across meter , generally you can hear this type of failure. IE humming motor or transformer you then un-tapp motor from board and ohm the leads together just as with a compressor the sums of the legs should be equal the greatest or at least close. One last test before we condim this units blower, try passing continuity thru the Windings to shell of motor, if so then motor needs replaced as it is shorted to ground. If still no blower on, then un-wire tstat at board and jump R-G this should jump fan into running if no action, do not rewire stat to board instead I usually remove door switch circuit and leave the neutral connected to spade at board, remove black wire from fan door switch and place it directly to cool wire to verify motor failure blower with 115v if motor is static need new motor.. NOTE when dealing with ecm motors you use same exact proceedures except you need to check motor module seperatly after assessing 1st inital failure. NOTE 2 There is also one other reason to have unit calling for cooling but no air is being distributed thru venting, this maybe caused by a dirty indoor coil that was unable to transferring any heat thru frozen block -coil or filter the indoor side this can happen anytime the air flow across coil is signifigantly impinged (MORE)
There are many reasons why it does not work: its temperature control may have been set too high; it may have lost all its refrigerant because of a leak in the system; its compressor pump may not be working properly; etc...

First what year of car, and what does it smell like? Some vehicles have a recirculation filter behind the glove box. Or the floor mat could have something on them that make the odor.

In high humidity the evaporators can build up with mold and cause odors.. Is the smell the same one you smell after a rain? If so, read this: http://science.howstuffworks.com/question479.htm (MORE)
Yes, especially with the help of the batteries. Solar energy can run an air conditioning system. It can run the entire car in fact. You could actually do it withou the batteries as there would be little point in running an air conditioning system when the sun is not out. But having only the air cond…itioning system powered by solar energy would still be a net advantage. (MORE)
In a solar eclipse the moon blocks out the sun because the moon Aline's perfectly in our sight of the sun, although the solar eclipse can only be seen in a Pacific area these areas can be mapped and have been.
Your refrigerant could be low, but that fix all statement may not be it. You may also have some of the parts freezing up, a weak compressor, a thermostat that is stuck on heating mode. Many many things lead to this problem. Best go with a reputable A/C company to do some trouble shooting.
The apparent angular size of the Moon depends on its location in its orbit; when the Moon is at perigee (closest to Earth) it is about 50,000 miles closer than at apogee. When it is at perigee, it looks a little bigger than the apparent angular diameter of the Sun, and we can get total eclipses. Whe…n the Moon is at apogee, the Moon appears to be a little SMALLER than the Sun, and during a solar eclipse the Moon doesn't QUITE cover the Sun, so we get a "ring" or "annular" eclipse. (MORE)
Air condition is the state of air at a given point in time (temperature, humidity, pressure, cleanliness, etc.). Air conditioning is a process of cooling air...sometimes heating also.
Need to know what the output in amp and volts of the solar panels are.
This depends upon how much power each cell produces. Most home central air units need 240V, and draw aprox. 24 amps.
Couple of reasons. First make sure the filters are not blocking the air flow. (Yes when they are too dirty they can actually do that.) Next may be that the blower is out. That you may want to contact an a/c company for. (those stop working because the motor windings go out or the contactors from the… thermostat to the unit are old and unuseable or several other electrical reasons.) (MORE)

1. The possibility that the setting switch is for blower/ fan or for heating and not cooling in air conditioners that have both heating/cooling system.. 2.The chilling compartment /compression of cooling gas has leaked. 3.The compression is weak to chill the cooling compartment.
well i would guess probably a couple of 1000 a dollar's depending wear you get they charge you for everything installation is where they get and plus the machine so get some quoites
Asolar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and earth so that the sun is either fully or partially covered. This can only happen during a new moon, when the Sun and Moon are in conjunction as seen from the Earth. At least two and up to five solar eclipses can occur each year on Earth,… with between zero and two of them being total eclipses. (MORE)

If your A/C drain pan becomes full of condensate and the water cannot escape, it could overflow the catch pan and damage your floor and/or the ceiling of the next level down in your home or office.
A solar eclipse doesn't last long enough to affect the air temperature. The air is heated by the ground below. However, the temperature we "feel" is a combination of the air temperature and the Sun's light and heat hitting our bodies. Since the Moon blocks the Sun during an eclipse, the Sun isn't… hitting US - and we feel a little cooler from the lack of the Sun warming us. (MORE)
The most common cause of an air conditioner not blowing air is a plugged filter. Be sure your filter is clean.
No. Though it is named after the HVAC company Carrier, there is no a/c in the dome. Because it is used mainly during the academic year when temps are at or near freezing, there is no real need for it......unless you've been inside the dome with 33K other people for a basketball game.
Get a set of a/c gauges and put the blue hose on the low side and the red hose on the high side, connect the remaining yellow hose to a vacuum pump..... Vacuum the system for 1-hour and let it sit for 1-hour and if it holds then add the correct amount of both freon and oil depending on the year, ma…ke and model....... (MORE)
It is in the fuse box behind battery you have to remove the plastic around battery and passenger side wiper plastic pieces to get to it!
precision air conditioning system is one type AC system which supply moisture less colling air.Generally we use it for electronics equipment or server room area.
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.
Sounds like a problem which involves the evaporator, although the problem may not necessarily be at the evaporator.
It could be a number of reasons. You could have blockage at the condenser or evaporator, you could have insufficient refrigerant, you could have a failed component or sensor. There's no way to tell for certain without hooking up a manifold gage set and checking to see what condition your system is i…n. There's seven "conditions" applied to how air conditioning systems operate, which are determined by reading the high and low side pressures on a manifold gage set. Those conditions isolate the problem and give an idea of what needs to be repaired. (MORE)

The most recent inventor for a Solar Air Heater is Paul M. Doherty from Massachusetts. The information is available from the United States Patent Office. Also, Canada.
All that has to happen is the Moon has to be between us and the Sun in the correct alignment. Basically Sun, Moon then Earth. Depending where on Earth you are will depend whether you will see a Total, Partial or no Eclipse.
Air filters for home use are not user serviceable parts. The only way to solve the problem of a dirty air filter is to replace the filter as specified by the manufacturer.
The air comes from the air outside and the air conditioning system in the car turns this into cold or warm air.

The Moon needs to be exactly between your eyes and the Sun. This means that you are in the Moon's shadow.
There is a split air conditioner and there is a multi-zone split air conditioner. Multi zone means that you can have two condensers in different areas.
Air conditioning reduces the temperature and humidity of air in buildings. Air conditioning systems are commonly used in large commercial or institutional buildings to maintain a constant environment.
yes. it is one of the varitions of split systems. by cartrige theyjust mean the evaporator and blower motor are contained in a"cartrige like" unit. it requires no duct. the condensor unit isthe same as any other split system.
