The idea is to insulate to keep air and it's moisture content away from the metal pipes. A double faced insulation with foil on the pipe side is very good. I wrapped mine with r-13 single faced ceiling joist rolls and don't expect to have any condensate problems.

the insulation is there to keep moisture off the larger line. If you dont have any insulation or it is ripped it will just drip but it doesn't hurt the a/c unit.

Good insulation in the attic and walls. Central air.

If you do not have central heat ( i.e. a furnace), then you need to have a space heater of some kind. If you did not have a chimney, you could get a kerosene stove or an electric heater. If you have access to the attic, you may be able to add insulation. Insulation may also sometimes be blown in between the walls. If you do not have storm windows. you can stretch plastic over the outside.

No, they just purify the air. Black mould is caused by condensation. Its cold outdoors, but warm indoors with the central heating and stuff so that cause condensation and damp which leads to black mould.

Sometimes~ Minor arcs have central angles less than 180 degrees because 180 is a semi-circle and above 180 is a major arc. An acute angle is less than 90 degrees, so this is only true sometimes.

No, because its a continent but you would capitalize central america

The central AC line freeze due to evaporator coil. Because, This is the part of air condition system which transfers the inside to outside of the home. the two reason behind it it can freeze due to restricted air flow and lack of sufficient refrigerant. the result is that the air conditioner's evaporator coil cannot operate to properly dissipate heat, and in effect "overcools" itself. The result of this super-cooling is condensation and eventually ice from that condensation as it cools below the freezing point

Well, if your windows are thin and get cold enough, the moist, humid air outside will condense on the surface of the windows, much like the condensation that appears on a cold beverage can or glass in a humid room.
