Why does the air coming from your home air conditioner vents smell like stale smoke but not when your heater is on in a duplex where the other family smokes?

This has much to do with how the air conditioner and the heater is vented. If the air conditioner draws its air from outside it could be picking up air / smell of smoke from the other family and then redistributing it into your home. A heater on the other had usually has a heater input vent within the house it is heating (it draws the interior air in and then heats it blowing it back out) as the air within the home will be significantly warmer than the exterior air.

What is wrong if there is ice forming on the outside unit of your house air conditioner?

I see this happen a lot. The thermostat is turned down way to low (60 degrees or lower) causing ice to build up on the air conditioners condenser coils. Which causes the air not to get through the coils. The icing of the condenser creates a blockage and the air conditioner doesn't cool the house or room. Making you think it is not working. If not corrected the compressor will overheat. (Not Good). Turn the air conditioner off until the ice has melted (probably 24 hours). Then turn the air conditioner back on with the thermostat set to 68 to 70 degrees and it should go away. If not call a technician.

What is the difference between an ordinary air condition to a ductless air condition?

Yes, it is better to buy a ductless air conditioner. However, it is more of a matter of opinion on which to choose. The ductless air conditioner is better, aesthetically. It's more modern and fits into a normal home. A normal air conditioner takes up a window space, which ruins a beautiful view. However, ductless AC systems are harder to repair, however, they are still pretty durable.

Why is the central air conditioner iced up?

A central air conditioner is different from a window or wall unit in that it cools the whole house or business. The most common reason for ice to be forming on the air conditioner is that the filters are clogged. In an air conditioner for your home, the filter is the same one as the burner for your heat. I change mine on the 1st of the month. Twelve filters cost about $.50 each so for six to eight bucks you can save yourself the cost of a service call. Don't buy the pleated filters - they restrict too much air, causing ice buildups.
