Online review sites rarely show all the reviews got, and post evaluations from sources that are not always credible. This offers a platform for companies to publish their own reviews and people to quickly post reviews without the business in question's ability to professionally deal with the issue. In addition, no company would provide out an unfavorable reference; only those that are very positive.

We Are Forced To Place Our Bed Over The Air Conditioning Vent On The Floor. How Can We Re-Direct The Air Flow?
We Have No Other Place To Put The Bed...The Vent Is On The Floor Right At The Wall Where The Head Of The Bed Is. I Saw An Ad For An Extender, But That Only Goes Three Feet From The Front Of The Vent. Is There Any Way To Re-Direct It Out To Either Side Of The Bed?
You can purchase a plastic deflector that sits right on top of the vent. These normally direct the air flow forward away from the wall though, which means it would be directing the air down the length of your bed.
I would build one myself, in your situation.
You could use styrofoam insulating board, or plywood. Just create a "U" shaped channel. I'd make it about 3 inches high, by 4 inches wide, and whatever length you need to reach the edge of the bed. You could let it direct air to both sides of the bed, or just one side or the other.
You could use something bulkier, like 2x4 's, and a 2x6, but its not necessary. 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch plywood would work just fine, or as I said, styrofoam insulating board.
Ive done similar 'deflectors' when I had to place furniture over a vent.
Honda Air Conditioning Filter?
Where Is The Intake Air Filter On My Honda Accord 2001?
The air conditioning filter is behind your glove box. It is 2 micron filters about a foot long and 4 inches wide. If you are not familiar with removing dash panels I would suggest paying a shop to do it. The intake (engine) air filter is inside the black box at the end of the tube that goes to the throttle body (the tube is about 4 inches in diameter). Depending if this car is a v6 or 4 cylinder you will either have 4 metal clips or 4 philips head screws. This is very easy to install yourself. Both filters clean incoming air, the a/c one filters the air your a/c circulates in your car, the engine one cleans the air going into your engine. Both should be done about every 30,000 miles if you use Honda filters (not aftermarket). Change them more often if it is very dusty in your area.
Air Conditioning Ductless Question Help.?
Would (1) 24,000 Btu System Be The (Same/ Better/ Worse) Than (2) 12,000 Btu Systems?
Is Having A Bigger One Better Or Would Two Smaller Ones Put In Separate Living Areas Be Better?
Would Their Energy Usage Be Similar 1 Vs 2?
Without talking about specific systems, we cannot say whether a single 24k btu unit will use twice, or less-than-twice as much power as 2 12k btu units. I can say this much: the highest efficiency ratings are generally found in the lower end of the spectrum, so you will likely find your most efficient ductless HVAC in the 9,000-15,000 btu range.
That range is the bread and butter of residential HVAC, especially for the retrofit market. Lots of development happens in that range, and if you're willing to pony up there are "inverter" models that are capable of variable speed control on the fans and compressors, so once your system has gotten your house to the right temperature, it slows down and just holds your place at that level. At that kind of operating load, the system can run at such a low power level you might not be able to hear it. They make a refrigerator sound clattery.
The larger 24k btu units are generally going to require MORE than twice as much power. Add that to the fact that it will deliver its cooling in one spot - possibly making an uncomfortably cool spot - and the two units offer not just the variable speed option (which the larger model can also offer), but you can turn one system completely off if you so desire, you can see that the flexibility of two smaller units is very appealing.
Also, if one of the two smaller ones fails, you still have the other to help prevent conditions from becoming unbearable. If the 24k unit goes out, you're overheating immediately with no recourse but to call a tech straightaway.
Your up front cost will likely be higher with the two smaller systems, but I think the potential for satisfaction in the delivered performance will be much higher with the two than the one, and if funds are tight you can get one now, then add another as the budget permits. That's the way I would go if it was me.
Good luck with your decision.
