@ December 6, 2012 1:55 AM in Air Conditioner Maintenance InstructionsHello Friends,
1. Inspect and maintain the air conditioner filter. Clean the filter if it is dirty by vacuuming it, washing it with soap and warm water, and then letting it dry thoroughly. You should clean the filter monthly during the seasons when the unit is in regular use. Replace the filter with a new one if it is damaged.
2. Clean the air conditioner's coils and fins to optimize the flow of air and absorption of heat. Consumer Reports suggests vacuuming the coils and fins with a brush attachment. Remove the cover of the air conditioner and use compressed air in a can to remove dirt hidden in the hard-to-reach spots.
3. Check the seal around the air conditioner after installing it. Make sure the seal touches both the unit and the window frame. A seal that is damaged or not intact will cause cool air to escape, and prevent the unit from being as effective as could be, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
4. Cover or uninstall your window air conditioner after the cooling season. If you choose to uninstall the unit, make sure you store it in a dry place.
5. Vent the portable air conditioning unit through a window, drop ceiling or wall, using a venting kit. Such kits usually come with these units. You must vent the hot air in the room before using the unit to cool the space.
6. Drain water that has condensed from the air. In cooling a space, air conditioners remove water from the air. To maximize cooling efficiency, you should empty the water from the unit regularly. While some portable units have built-in drains where the water is evaporated, you may have to drain the water manually for less advanced units. Refer to the product manual for specifics on how to drain the particular model you have.
7. Replace or clean filters every two weeks or monthly, depending on how often you use the unit and according to what the manufacturer prescribes.
8. Store the portable air conditioner when the cooling season is over. To properly store it, you must turn the unit off, unplug it and drain the water. Dry out the inside of the unit by turning on "fan mode." After cleaning the filter, place the unit back in its box and store it in a dry place.
9. Clear the area around the outdoor components of the central air conditioning system of debris, and make sure foliage is a minimum of two feet away from the unit. Foliage or debris that is obstructing the unit will prevent it from functioning properly.
10. Hire a professional to perform routine maintenance. This usually includes changing or replacing all the filters; cleaning and flushing the coils and drainage system; vacuuming the blower, and inspecting the refrigerant.
11. Seal and insulate all ducts. Neglecting to insulate ducts can result in a loss of up to 40 percent of energy.
12. Cover the outdoor component to protect it from the elements and debris when the central air conditioning is not in use.
Thanks and Regards
@ December 4, 2012 12:40 AM in Who replaces air conditioning and coolant houses?Hi Friends,
I have been having some problems with my car. It's a 2001 Ford Taurus, and it has been in pretty good condition except lately its hoses have been leaking. The coolant hose leaks really bad, also my air conditioning has a hose
that leaks front faster than I can put it in. Since it's nearly
summer here in Louisiana, I want to fix my AC! So who do I take it to
have the hoses replaced?
@ November 29, 2012 5:56 AM in Where can I buy an air conditioning compressor?Hello Friends,
Where can I buy a new air conditioning compressor? I mean, what sort of store? What should I look for in the yellow pages? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
@ November 28, 2012 3:05 AM in Tips to repair Car Air ConditionersHello Guys,
1. Determine exactly what is wrong with the air conditioner.
2. Use the vacuum cleaner with the crevice attachment to clean out the vents on the inside of the car, located between the windshield and the hood of the car. Also clean any vents that lead from the air conditioner itself to the car under the hood.
3. Use the screwdriver and wrench to remove any vent covers, air filters or other removable parts. Clean them thoroughly and re-install them.
4. Replace any fuses that may have blown. Refer to your owner’s manual for the type of fuses to buy and where the receptacles for them are located.
5. Use the air-conditioner kit to replace any parts that may be broken or simply worn out. Follow the directions that come with the kit.
6. Determine if the air conditioner has enough coolant, using a testing sensor. If the coolant is low or has all leaked out, a professional will have to replace the coolant for you.
7. Open the hood. Cover any parts that need to stay dry with aluminum foil or plastic. Give everything a good spraying off with a water hose. This will loosen any dirt or debris that may be blocking vents or outlets, which may be causing the air conditioner to malfunction or operate poorly.
@ November 26, 2012 1:41 AM in Air Conditioning not working?Hello Friends,
I had my Air conditioning re gassed less than 12 months ago and its
now blowing warm air, is this right? How long should it last? Is there a
fuse could I check?
@ November 13, 2012 11:47 PM in Hanging ductless condenser on wallHello Friends,
If you have one or more rooms without exterior walls or windows, a wall-mounted ductless split system will work beautifully. The indoor air handler is sleek, unobtrusive and quiet.
Thanks and Regards,
