Frequently Asked Questions:
Does My Air Conditioning Unit Have A Runoff?
My Filter In My Air Condition Unit Is Soaking Wet. I Can Not Find Any Type Of Run-Off To The Outside. This Is An Heat Pump/Air Conditioning Unit. Do They Always Need A Hose To The Outside? Where Does Condensation Go?
The condensate is supposed to run down a 3/4" drain line. If that clogs up with algae then the water has no other place to go. Its over-running the pan and running down on to the filter. If you can find the drain line (if its plumbed to the outside) then take a wet/dry vac out there and suck the clog out. If its not plumbed outside you will have to get inot the air handler with whats called a Gallo Gun. (a handy little tool we use for just such an occasion) If you are at all handy with a PVC cutter and have a 3/4" coupling you can simply cut the line and use a small junk piece of garden hose and BLOW it out......
Do remember to have a bucket close by. When you cut the line the standing water in the pan wants to get out.
Guinea Pigs And Air Conditioning...?
I'M Wondering If Air Conditioning Can Affect Guinea Pigs? I Had A Guinea Pig That'S Cage Was Kept In A Living Room And The A/C Was About...20 Feet Or More Away And Not Directly Facing The Cage At All. It Got Sick And Died, But It Could Have Also Had Respiratory Problems From When We Got It. I'M Just Worried About My Two Pigs That I Keep In My Room Since It'S Getting Close To The Time When We Put The A/Cs In...
If the cage is near a vent where it's directly hit this could cause issues. It could create or worsen respiratory problems. Be sure to give it plenty of vitamin c and use a good quality bedding, preferably carefresh or softsorbent. Stay away from cedar and corn cob at all costs. Just place the cage furthest away from the vents as possible and all should go well
Which Is Better Tempstar Or Trane Air-Conditioning Unit??
I Have A 12 Year Old Tempstar Unit That Just Went Out. I Really Liked It, But I Want To Know If I Should Stick With The Tried And True, Or Go With A Trane System. Anyone?
You are buying a name. I have worked on and sold and installed them all. Yes the higher priced ones have more steel in the cabinets and look better, but as long as you have a Copeland scroll compressor you have the best compressor made and they all use the same replacement parts.Check out Goodman, they have a 5 year parts and labor warranty and on their high end the warranty is 10 years. 95% of the parts are universal. Look inside your old unit at the contactors and relays, they are all made in Japan or china, I know I have been doing this for 15 plus years and am licensed and certified with a BA in thermodynamics.
