There are quite a few reasons why an air conditioner could be running but not cooling. One should first check the Freon lines and ensure that there is an adequate amount of Freon available.

Why is there humidity in the room when air conditioner is cooling? Room feels damp.

You will use more gas when your air conditioner is running.

There is no such thing as and air-conditioner accumulator in an automobile. A nonworking air-conditioner compressor can cause a cooling malfunction.

No. Running an air conditioner on fan does not cost as much as running on cool.

If the air conditioner is on but not cooling the house properly, you may have a leak in your duct work. A leak would allow all of the cold air to escape, blowing into the outdoors instead of cooling your house.

Actually a refrigeration compressor is a component of an air conditioner. The refrigerant used in an air conditioner is called Freon. The compressor in an air conditioner evacuates the evaporator providing cooling to the air.

No, it's not your fault. It's just running too much. Often this can happen due to the level of refrigerant in the air conditioner being too low, perhaps due to a small leak. The air conditioner should be checked out by a reliable cooling repair person.

Yes you can put ice in front of your air conditioner. And as a matter of fact, for each ton of ice that you use up, you will have gotten a ton of cooling done. This is the origin of the term "Ton" as it is applied to cooling. A ton of cooling is 12,000 btuh. So if you use up a ton of ice per hour, it will give you the same cooling effect as a 12,000btuh window air conditioner!

Yes, all air conditioners remove moisture from the air while cooling the air.

No it does not, it has to do with the cooling system of the engine and the heater. Refrigerant is used in the Air Conditioner.

Air conditioning is the process of changing the properties of air. Heating, Cooling, ventilation and disinfection would all be considered forms of air conditioning because each alters the properties of the air. In more broad terms, cooling and heating may be provided by a furnace and air conditioner, individually, or from a central air system that handles both processes.

Auto cooling is turning on and off automatically to maintain a constant temperature set on a thermostat.

Depending on the the out side temperature even when the air conditioner sits idle, the refrigerant inside the air conditioner is changing from a liquid to a vapor .

A powerful full house air conditioner unit will cost in the range of 1500 to 2000 dollars.

You probably have mold on the evaporator coil.

It is important to keep the air conditioner clean and know how to remove mold as it can reduce the efficiency of the air conditioner and also cause a foul smell . You should clean the condenser and the indoor unit.

A portable air conditioner can be more cost efficient but you have to make sure the btu of the air conditioner is big enough for the room you are cooling. Another thing to take into account is if you decide to purchase a portable unit is to make sure it has temperature control.
