How To Remove Cigarette Smoke Smell Coming From Air Conditioning Vent?
Just Bought Our First Home, But Everytime You Turn On The Air Conditioning A Strong Cigarette Odor Comes From The Vents. I Know To Replace The Filter, But It Comes Outta One Rooms Vents The Most So I Think It Must Need To Be Cleaned Or Something. Anyone Know How?
Don't know where you live but most towns have duct cleaning companies who specialize in cleaning and sanitizing heating and A/C ducts. Some have the option to deodorize them as well. Also, the nicotine smell is imbedded in the carpet as well and it needs to be cleaned and deodorized. Every time you turn on the furnace or A/C the "return" vents recirculate the foul odor. Any other cloth areas present the same problem and should either be washed or sprayed with a deodorizer like Febreeze frequently. Ionized air cleaners do work if you get the right brand. Check Consumer Reports for reviews.
I Have A Problem With Redtek 12A Air Conditioning Recharge?
I Have A Problem With Red Tek 12A Air Conditioning Recharge. The Recharge Seemed To Go Just Fine, I Got The Pressure To What I Think Is 80 Lbs, According To The Gauge, On Both My Vehicles I Did This On. I Did This To A 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier Ls, As Well As A 2005 Chevrolet Blazer. Both Vehicles Have A Problem Now. They Do Not Blow That Hard In Terms Of The Fan For Ac, Or Fan Even By Itself??! Sometimes They Do Blow Fine, But Others Not. Just Seems To Be Related To Vehicle Temperature, After Driving For Some Time, It Seems To Work. What Went Wrong Here, Is There An Incompatibility? Or? Did I Mess Up? How Can This Be Resolved. Any And All Suggestions Would Help. Thanks
Karim - Surrey, Bc (Cloverdale Close To Langley) Canada. Thanks.
This is a job for a professional. The fan operation should not depend on the amount of charge in either vehicle but odds are both systems are improperly charged. It is impossible to determine the amount of charge using a gauge (or even a set of gauges) and even a couple ounces of overcharge will send slugs of liquid refrigerant spilling out of the evaporator into the compressor, where they have the same effect chewing on rocks has on teeth. Those kits are illegal in California and should be illegal everywhere.
Do You Think It Is &Quot;Noble&Quot; To Go Without An Air Conditioner In This Horrible, Hot Weather?
Our Old Air Conditioner Died Last Year. We Were Able Get Along With Some Big Fans. But This Year It Is Different! I Have A Heart Condition And The Intense Heat Is Causing My Heart To Act Up A Lot More. I Know Somebody Who Died Already This Year Bcause He Had Bad Lungs And Couldn'T Get Air Conditioning In His Apartment. My Family Is Broke, And I Didn'T Want To Used Up The Last Of Our Credit To Buy An A/C.
Isn'T It Wonderful--A Great Recession And A Great Heat Wave At The Same Time!
Sorry to hear that.
If one has a choice, I wouldn't really say it's "noble" to go without the A/C, just because of the health risks associated from excessive heat. I mean, there can be a legitimate need for it, and people should be thankful for modern technology.
Hope you can figure something out... Maybe find some places where you can cool down from time to time?
By the way, drinking lots of fluids can really help fend off the dangers of heat!
What Causes Central Air Conditioning To Frost Up?
I'Ve Heard They May Do That If Low On Coolant, But I Don'T Understand Why, It Seems To Me That Low Coolant Would Have The Opposite Effect.
Low on coolant can give you a frosting condition, If the amount of refrigerant hasn't got to the point where it's not doing anything. Your A/c runs at about 35 to 40 degrees, if the amount of refrigerant gets lower, it will get colder to a certain point. It is capable of freezing up the evaporator, cooling coil.
They're are other factors that can cause this condition, poor air flow over the evaporator, (check your filters) to cold of ambient temperature, to cold outside, running to long, doors and windows open...
