What Is The Minimum Distance Needed Between Two Outside Air Conditioning Units?
Air Handlers Might Be The Proper Term.
The air handler is the indoor unit. The airflow around the outside unit is essential for removing the heat from your home. You will want a minimum of 6 inches on any one side, but 18 inches is more desirable. Two outdoor units can be placed closer, depending on where the outdoor coil is located. You will want to have room to service the equipment and have room for proper air flow. The spec's for the specific outdoor unit will tell you the minimum clearance. A good rule of thumb, if you can sit down between the units, you have enough room.
Heating And Air Conditioning Units, Where Do We Change The Filter..?
Hello Just Moved To A Single Family Home Can Anyone Advice Where To Change The Filteration For The Cooling And Heating, The House Gets A Lot Of Dust And Am Not Close To Any Roads That The Dust Is Coming In From The Street.
The filter could be located in the cold air return - most likely located in a hall ceiling. We have changed the grill to one that hinges just so we could put a filter there to filter the dust before it even gets to the furnace. Furnaces have filters located inside the grill area - facing the furnace there will be (probably) and upper and lower panel with air vent openings - remove one or both to see where the filter is located - maybe inside along the side to filter the air that is being sucked from the cold air return. Get the better filters - not the cheapest. The unit will not run when the cover is removed so you won't run the risk of torching your eyebrows - but you could turn the t-stat down so it won't come on - you also have to replace the cover properly for the furnace to run once you are done.

My Central Ac Outside Fan Won'T Spin Unless I Get It Started - What Can I Do To Fix It?
I Have Central Air Conditioning - When I Turn On The Air, The Outside Unit Turns On And Makes Noise, But The Outside Fan Does Not Spin. However, If I Reach Through The Grate And Spin The Fan Manually, It Will Eventually Kick In And Keep On Spinning On Its Own...But Once The Fan Stops Again, It Won'T Start Unless I Spin It First. Is There Anything Easy I Can Do To Fix This? The Motor Must Still Be Working Somewhat, B/C Like I Said, Once It Gets Going, The Fan Will Stay On Indefinitely.
replace the fan capacitor. its a 20 dollar part. Doing it yourself expect to save atleast $100, do you wrong yourself and expect to spend an extra couple hundred changing the motor that will burn out if wired incorrectly.
1. Look on the motor for the capacitor size. it will be a number than MFD. most common is 5 MFD. or look on the old capacitor, (google search run capacitor so you know what you are looking for). The old capacitor could be a dual run capacitor meaning in one is a capacitor for the compressor and the fan, the lower mfd rating will be the rating for the fan. best to do this with power off.
2. Buy the capacitor, some hvac suppliers sell over the counter but not always, no doubt you could buy this online.
3. Wiring -
-Either the capacitor will be seperate from the compressor capacitor and there will be two brown wires going to it. That one is a no brainer just swap the new one in, making sure the wires are on seperate terminals of the capacitor, doesn't matter which wire to which terminal.
- most times its a dual run capacitor. if so secure the new capacitor somewhere inside the unit, take the wire going to the F terminal on the old cap and put it on the new one, usually its a brown wire. you will see another wire from the fan connecting to either C on the capacitor or to the red side of the contactor. You can leave that wire where it is, but you will have to add a wire from the spare side of the new capacitor to where that other wire from the fan connects to. Do NOT put it together with the black one.
A wiring diagram in the unit should help. If not sure call a tech out, To install, don't buy the part from him otherwise depending on the company the mark-up can be pretty outrageous.
