Air Conditioner Advice & Tips

Air Conditioner Advice
Remember to follow the air conditioner advice and tips below to learn how to continue to be cool and preserve your A/C’s optimum performance.

Air filtering needs to be fully clean

They need to be located close to the return air duct alongside the air handler or perhaps a return air grill(s). Look at your air filter every 30 to 90 days to make certain it is clean up. Depending of home, i.e. if you could have pets or animals you should clean or replace the air filter a lot more often.

Turn the switch or push the press button at the thermostat for that fan setting to FAN ON, not AUTO

This will run the internal fan nonstop. The exterior A/C system will still cycle by using a require cooling from the thermostat. The actual air moving can keep you cooler. It is possible to probably keep the thermostat a level or two elevated yet still feel at ease. You will probably keep a more even temps in between upstairs and downstairs. This will certainly Save a little money as the outdoor condenser will not really come on as often!

Ensure that you wash the outdoors condenser coil once each year

If it’s dirty the A/C will run hot and unproductive. A indication of the coil being unclean may be the tiny subjected copper mineral pipe (tubing) line, typically 3/8″ O/D linking the inside unit along with the outside unit is going to be HOT to touch.

  • “Warm Areas” for the lower levels of the home where it’s cooler cut back / partially take off some vent registers (Diffuser) but don’t close up these off all of the way, doing this could restrict the fixed air pressure (air balancing of the process.) Guarantee that all the ones around the upper floors where it is drier are available entirely!
  •  “Doors” in the event you close the doorway to some room ensure that there exists about a 3/4″ gap involving the bottom level of the door and the floor. You could possibly have had new carpet put down on the ground and now there is not any gap. This is exactly critical if you’ve got a central return air duct from the hallway. The return air ducts must pull the warm air from the space.

Never leave your home and turn OFF the A/C then come returning home and turn it on and expect it to cool home soon

Doing this will not let the unit to cool down down the house for a couple of hours. You’ll be able to set the temp up 5 to 10 degrees yet not OFF. This is due to Latent heat buildup during the walls and furniture in the property and will result in the A/C work harder to remove heat, this requires a long time.

  • By no means turn the A/C off than returning on in under five minutes, this can short-cycle the compressor and will trip breakers, blow fuses, or cause permanent damage the compressor. You should have a time-delay install on the A/C to avoid this during power outages! Most digital programmable thermostats employ a time-delay of 3-5 minutes built-in. Having a start capacitor and relay is recommended. This will add to the life expectations of your compressor by starting up faster thus maintaining motor temperatures lower, using less electric powered to start.
  •  Continue to keep window blinds closed down, curtains drawn, blinds down. A operating attic fan would be a wise decision. Plenty of insulation within the ceiling & walls. Air tight storm windows. Keep external doors and openings close, etc.
  •  “Icing of your interior coil or perhaps the big insulated protected copper pipe. There are two main reasons for this, absence of setting up or tight on refrigerant. Absence of air circulation is usually a dirty air filter, filthy interior evaporator coil, unclean fan rotor blades, damper in duct decreasing venting.
  • You should not need to add refrigerant to a system, if you’re adding refrigerant this means that there exists a refrigerant leak in the system that Needs to be fixed! “Why Eliminating the Ozone layer?”

  •  Checking the cooling with a thermometer. Right now there really should be a 15-20 degree (Delta-T) temperature drop through the interior coil for the air trainer. Verify the temperature drop within the duct nearby the coil, if air getting into the coil is 75 degrees than the air leaving the coil should really be 60-55 degrees. If it really is increased or lower there’s probably a problem. Too high of the drop, IE more than 20 degrees drop, could mean lack of air flow or low on refrigerant. Less than a 15-degree drop could mean excessive air flow, grubby exterior coil or have less refrigerant.
  • By no means include the A/C (Outside unit) with plastic or even an air tight cover; this will cause it to rust.
  • Never let pets (Cats) (Dogs) etc. Urinate on the exterior coil. This leads it to corrode (rust) after which it leak refrigerant.
  •  Always keep grass, leaves & unwanted weeds from hindering air flow on outside A/C.
  •  Will Not make a deck at the top of the outside A/C or everthing else that would increase the risk for warm discharge air to re-circulate back in the unit.
  • Fuses, Circuit Breakers and wires are not hot to the touch; if these are hot you sometimes have a dimensions problem or possibly a unfastened or negative electrical link.
  •  You can actually cease listen to, the remainder might not exactly appeal to your intelligence.
