How do you replace a compressor for the air conditioning in a 1996 4X4 350 Chevy Z71?

Being a Licensed Mechanic in Canada , and the fact it is illegal to open a air conditioning system to the atmosphere. I would suggest taking your truck to a reputable autoshop that has a proper AC recovery system .To at the least remove the refidgerant from the system before you start . Then you start by removing your electrical connectors to your clutch and pressure switch . Unhook your AC lines ,generally one bolt holding a flange with your two lines attatched. Then remove the bolts holding the compressor . Follow the instructions with the new compressor adding the proper amount of oil ,turning the pulley 15-20 times to ensure oil is through the compressor . Dont forget to install new seals and put oil on them before installation. Reinstall all components and take back to the shop to have the system refilled.

What is the copper line on a dehumdifier connected to?

Both ends of the coil of copper are connected to a pump very similar to an air conditioning pump. A working fluid, such as freon, is pumped through the line, so when room air is forced over the smooth coil, it will condense and drip into the container.See how air conditioning works for the process of making the lines cold.Dehumidifiers work under the same principles that cause moisture to bead up on the outside of a drink when taken from the refrigerator.

Why Choose Ductless Air Conditioning?

Ductless air conditioning is the answer to a homeowner’s wish to have air conditioning without extensive remodeling or ductwork installation. The units are similar to a central air conditioning system but use a wall mounted unit to cool a room. These wall units can be compared to baseboard heating. The wall units are generally placed high up on the wall so a homeowner does not need to worry about blocking the air with furniture. Ductless air conditioning units are available in a variety of sizes to match any home or apartment’s needs. These systems are ideal for older homes that were built without any air ducts. They are much cheaper than an air conditioning system as well. If a home does not have ductwork, a homeowner is facing exorbitant remodeling costs to install the needed ductwork for a central air system. The cooling unit itself is placed outside, just like an air conditioning system. Only an experienced technician should install the ductless air conditioning unit. The system will need to be wired into the home’s electrical panel or in some cases an additional breaker will be needed to run the system. A refrigerant line will be hooked up to the outside unit and attached to each wall unit in the home. Most ductless air conditioning systems can be purchased with up to four wall units. A homeowner can specify where they would like the unit placed but the technician’s advice should be heeded as well. There are refrigerator lines and electrical lines and condensation lines that will need to be attached to each wall unit and fed back to the outside unit. Generally, these lines are placed on a wall that is facing the outside of the home. It is possible to run the lines through an attic or ceiling space to keep them from being visible. Some ductless air conditioning systems include remote control devices that allow a user to control the temperature for each room. Other systems may only include one thermostat for all the wall units.
