Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Tran A/c installed last summer

\015 One bedroom upstairs about 95 derees in summer. Other bedroom upstairs/freezing. Loft/freezing. Said they did not have access to attic by vent. Paid to have access panel installed. I have heard every excuse possible. 3 kids in room--too many people. Now they say I need return installed in room. It was not this hot with the old A/C and 3 kids were in the room at that time. Said they cannot put larger venting system as there is not room on the box over the A/C unit. Bedroom is close to A/C unit, but vented near bottom of box. They said I should not close door. But all other bedrooms get plenty of air with door closed. I need help with suggestions on how to fix this problem.\015

Answers :

It's the ducting that causes the problem. But if the old unit wasn't as bad, did they install a smaller unit to save on money? It is possible, some companies do this to make more money. Sad but it is true. A return added to the room would help but if they can run a return, then they can add another duct or reduct the room as well. Sounds like someone is trying to sell you a story without fixing the issue. Tell them that they don't need to add an extra run, tell them to change the size! Also, make sure that if the run is longer than 25 feet, the ducting has to be stepped down in size to increase valocity to the vent. For example, you have a 10" duct running for 25' and then you step down to 8" the rest of the way unless that run is more than 25'. Hope this info helps!

Amana Model APG13360901 ( 3 ton gaspack). Installed new amana last summer. This summer, 4 year old hardwood floor buckled. Existing ductwork from previous 15 years seems to be "sweating" at the register and getting enough moisture in the floor to buckle the hardwood. My old "crappy" rheem never buckled it, and was always able to remove enough moisture. By the way , somehow the condensate drain got plugged in July, and so I suppose the Amana was unable to remove the moisture. But it is funny

A contractor installed a Goodman condenser (new) for my son last november but never tested it,(too late in season). This summer my son tried to use it, the condenser fan comes on but the compressor does not. he called the guy and he thought it might be a seal that wasn't removed but wouldn't come back to correct the problem. Do you know what seal he's talking about what else the problem might be!

I have a 3.5 ton Ruud UBHC-Series Heat Pump, with fan coil unit UBHC-17J11SFA. It was installed in 2004. It has not been cooling well this summer, nd my bills were high last winter.

Hi, we have a problem with our Weatherking heating unit/ air conditioner. We had it installed 07/20/06. It really never has worked properly. For the last 2 summers in run's constantly. Which of course makes our electric bills outragous. Our house is around about 2200 square feet. This unit is a 4 ton unit. What could be the problem. Please help. Thank you. The model # is 13AJA48A01


Lets look at the whole problem. Did you have a new unit inside. Is the charge correct for unit. 1 lb of refrigerant makes difference. Four tons should be big enough if you have proper insulation. I have three tons in a 2100 square foot house. Its ple ... Weather King 12AJA4801AH Air Conditioner

Last night, the system began leaking substantial amounts of water, (condensation?) onto the closet floor where the unit is installed. The system has been running well all summer in this swelteringly miserable heat (+100 degree weather)in middle Ga. Is this a sign of coming failure or is it a normal reaction during these conditions? Your advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

I purchased an evaporative ducted air conditioner that has just come out of warranty.I have had problems with this unit and installation every summer.They have repaired all the faults as they have occured. This summer i have had a repeat of a fault that occured last year.The company came and repaired it . The company did not inform me that the unit was out of warrenty and sent me a bill for $234.75c.Am i entitled to pay this account


That is shoddy business they should have informed you how much the estimated repair was going to be. I would call the company and talk to them about the way the do business and ask them for a break on the bill. Being a heating and air conditioning s ... Air Conditioners

Self-Evaporating Technology This summer we are not finding very much if any water in the internal collection tank. We thought our machine was broken so we borrowed the Danby DPAC7599 Portable Air Conditioner and used it in the exact same way. Again very little or no water in the internal collection tank. The only difference I can think of from last summer to this summer is that I never open my western facing window or the blinds at all. We are very near the ocean In Vancouver BC. Last summer whe

We had a brand new unit put in a couple of years back. When it was installed it worked. Once winter came, it obviously was turned off. Then the following summer, it would turn on but just blow air, would not cool at all- so the unit installers came out and repaired it. It worked through the summer, then the following summer-it wouldnt cool again-they came back out and fixed it again. Third summer in a row-it is not working again!! A friend told me this morning, on new units there is a

Hello all I am about at my wits end....We had a 2 ton 14 seer Ruud heat pump installed at the end of last year. The biggest problem I am having is in heat mode when it goes into defrost it makes a loud almost helicoper sound for about 20-60 seconds, wakes you up that's for sure. When I have had the company that installed it come out I can never get it to do it for them and I even tried recording it. We have had a multitude of problems I believe mostly stemming from the company that installed it.

THe a/c has very weak flow of air blowing even with the fan on high. My last carrier had a high volume of air coming out of the vents which was adjusted by the installer as I desire room by room. This installer said the latest carrier units are designed differently and dont allow for adjustments. It takes hours for the house to cool down a few degrees and runs continuously. It only will cool below 74 degrees when the temperature outside is under 77. I have had several installers to look at

Do you think we have a short in the wireing to the AC unit


I think you have a definite short and it's in the 24 volt circuit. The only problem is - 'finding a low voltage short' is not the easiest thing in the world to do - so - I would guess you'd need a Service Tech.\015\012\015\012good luck! ... Air Conditioners

I fixed some floor damage in my hallway and kept a close eye on the unit. This summer it has s

I have an Amana RHE30A2B heat pump. I installed a new thermostat, Honeywell, last night and now the coils are not cooling & the unit is blowing hot air. I have double checked all the wiring & everything seems to work as it should. Is there a breaker or fuse on the outside unit that I am not aware of before I call a service man out. We also had an electrical storm last night. It could be a freak thing, but I am still concentrating on the thermostat.

I installed a Hunter 44860 digital programmable T-stat on a single zone heat pump system. During the summer it was fine and the AC was cold. When winter came, the heat would blow cool. A friend switched a wire for the reversing valve and the heat was great. Summer came and the AC blew hot. I changed the wire again and it was fine. Now winter is here and the heat is cold... reversed the wire and now the AC is hot. Is there a solution to this? Does this t-stat support both?


Single zone means there is only one valve for the thermostat to control for hot, and one to control for cold.The thermostat you selected is not correct.It is not for single zone heat pumps.If you would like me to do additional resea ... Air Conditioners
