If you are talking about the larger of the 2 copper lines, the problem could be that the unit is low on refrigerant. Check to ensure that the large line is insulated and not exposed.

I do not own a central air conditioner. There are several websites though that offer reviews of central air conditioners. One of these websites is consumersearch.com.

because that air conditioner is full of air. It is letting the air out.

A regular air conditioner just blows cold air through the domicile. Central air not only blows cold air through the house, but it dehumidifies and extracts heat from the house.

If central air conditioner turns on but is not blowing through the vents, check the filter. If it is dirty, change it. Change the thermostat into cool, this will defrost the air conditioner.

If you don't have central air conditioning, you can purchase a portable air conditioner (not a fan) to do the job.

Yes, unless you want your air conditioner to actually work.

The window air conditioner does not have to be on the window. It just has to be in proximity to the window. The vent pipes and fans work best if there is an opening on the wall.

The cost of installing a central air conditioner depends on the unit as well as the size of your house. It can cost you anywhere from $1,500 to $1,5000.

Yes, a central air conditioner can be installed in a house that currently uses room air conditioners as long as there is a place to put the fan outdoors.

There are many benefits to installing a central air conditioner. This will allow one to control the temperature of their house, and remain cool and comfortable during the summer months. It also has many benefits over a window mounted air conditioner, as central air allows each room in the house to be cooled equally.

Your central air conditioner may make a loud noise when it comes on. This is because it may have a leak somewhere in the system.

If you need a strong air conditioner it's best to go with an external one, that can be pumped through an existing central air duct.

The refrigerant (freon) in any air conditioner should last the life of the unit. If not, you have a leak.

You don't have to. but you'll probably regret it if you don't. Dust will build up inside the blower and the ventilation pipes. Also, the house will be a lot dustier than it would be otherwise.
