Frequently Asked Questions:
How Difficult Would It Be To Install An Air Conditioner?
Looking At Buying A 1972 Firebird But It Doesn'T Have Air Conditioning. I See In The Pictures That Its Got Vents So I Assume It Came With Ac, The Motor Isn'T Original It'S A 389 So The Ac Was Likely Removed With The Original Motor. How Much Work Would It Take To Install The Whole Ac System And Where Is The Best Place To Get The System That Would Fit It?
Just because it's got vents doesn't mean that it originally had air conditioning. A lot of cars built back in that era had fresh air vents in the dash too. Look at your heater controls... Does it indicate AC, or just heat and defrost?
Doesn't really matter... There are several companies that make AC kits for "classic" cars, and you can probably find a local auto air conditioner specialist who can install a system for you. Pick up a local telephone book. Make some calls.

I Am Replacing My Outside Air Conditioning Unit (Compressor?) What Brand Should I Buy?
My Unit Is Like 25 Years Old And I Would Like To Replace It Before It Dies. I Live In Va And The Townhouse Is About 2100 Sq Feet. I Want To Get The Most Energy Efficient Model I Can. It Will Have To Be Electric. Thanks.
Now, with technology what it is, you generally have to change out both the A-coil(the box on top of your heater) and the condensing unit(the unit outside). If you change out just one, there is an orifice in the a-coil that will not be compatible.
Trane and lennox both require that only there techs install or repair the unit and is generally more expensive. Carrier brands (Carrier, Bryant and Day & Night) are fairly common and easy to repair. I have installed hundreds of York units and have had few problems with them and the price of them is reasonable.
Other brands, such as Rheem and Rudd, are not as common and are a little bit more difficult to find repair parts.
I like York for both price and performance.
Proper Setting Of Air Condition?
I Just Want To Ask What Is The Best Setting For An Airconditioner To Save Electricity But Feeling Comfortable. Since I'M A Bit Confused We Have A Window Type Airconditioner, Our Thermostat Has A Dial From Warmer To Cooler, We Dont Have The One Stating The Degree Fahrenheit. Some People Told Me It'S Best If I Put The Setting All The Way To Cooler And Put It On High Cool. Is This True Or Should I Put The Thermostat On The Middle And Put It On High Cool Or Put It In The Middle And Put It On Low Cool, Or All The Way To Cooler And Put It In Low Cool. Please Help Since I'M A Bit Confused And Wants To Save And Feel Comfortable During This Hot Days. Thank You!
I would never put it on highest. The thermostat should be set at whatever temperature your most comfortable with..if the thermostat has numbers set it at maybe 7 then wait and see when the thermostat shut the cooling unit down but keeps the blower blowing. after a while several minutes maybe the unit should turn the cooling SYSTEM back on. NOW would be the time to change that number 7 to something Higher or lower depending on YOUR comfort zone. you might also look at your heater thermostat to see what the temperature is and use that also as a guide weather or nor it's still to warm OR to cold. usually the higher the number you use the LONGER the cooling unit is going to run. Try to find something around maybe 75 degree on your heater thermostat.
Central Air Conditioning Smells?
We Had A New Coil Put In Our Central Air Last Year. Before That, The Smell From The Ac Became Horrible, And Apparently We Had Bacteria Accumulating On The Coil Inside. It Was So Bad, Even Cleaning The Coil Didn'T Work. So They Replaced It. The Air Was Fresh And Clean. That Was Just Last Summer.
Well, Today We Are Having A Very Warm Day In The Mid 70'S. We Turned The Air On, And It Smells Horrible Again. This Happened Too On Warm Days In The Fall. I Told The Technician, And He Is Trying To Tell Me My Ducts Need Cleaned. But, The Heat Doesn'T Smell At All, And We Had The Ducts Cleaned A Few Years Ago. They Weren'T That Bad, Apparently, But They Did Find Mold.
I Have Asthma, And Can'T Cough And Sputter Every Time The Ac Is On This Summer. Now We Have To Pay Again For Him To Get The Coil Out And Inspect It, I'M Assuming. I Don'T Think This Is Fair - We Just Paid Over A Thousand Dollars For The Coil, Which He Said Should Last 8 Plus Years.
What Could This Be? Bacteria Again? Will A Uv Light Solve The Problem, And, Will We Need Yet Another New Coil?
What Should He Be Checking When He Comes? He Seems To Act Like He Has No Clue. What Am I Suppose To Do? Again, With Asthma This Is A Really Bad Problem.
Lets address the smell first. You had a bad odor problem in the past. You obviously had a badly blocked evaporator coil in the unit and it was replaced. The source of the smell was and is mold and slime that can accumulate in the condensate formed when air is cooled by air conditioning. As the warm moist air travels across the evaporator coil, heat is being sucked out of the air and the moisture in the air will condense into liquid water like it does on the outside of a cold can of beer. That condensate runs down the fins of the evaporator and collect into a drain pan. A drain line connects to the outlet of that pan and carries that condensate away. It may be piped to the waste water system of your home, it may be gathered into a small box and pumped away outdoors, regardless it has to have a place to go and it has to be free of obstruction. If not taken care of mold and slime can and will begin to grow in the drain pan or the drain line. The mold that was growing when you had the problem first were obviously there for an extended period of time and had a great opportunity to migrate through the ductwork. It may be time to consider having the ducts cleaned. Since the evaporator coil was replaced once already, and you are now needing to get back to that coil again it may be wise to have an access built in for future maintenance considerations. Your brand new evaporator coil has had a year to operate and provide another location for the mold spores to grow again. Evaporator coil can be cleaned on a regular basis and perform wonderfully for many years. Evaporator coil cleaner and microbiocides are usually applied directly to the coil by sprayer, such as a bug sprayer. It is self rinsing and will wash off as additonal condensate is formed. It usually has a pleasant odor to it. The cleaner solution is perfectly safe draining away through the condensate lines. Condensate has to be able to flow freely away from the machine. If the condensate drain connection is on the suction side of the air flow, it is necessary to have the drain lined P trapped. Without a P trap, air will be sucked in through the drain connection and allow water to build up in the tray. That water will spill over the edges of the drain pan and create problems. With the P trap, no air is sucked back in through the drain connection and the condensate flows away freely. If the drain connection is on the outlet side of the air flow and it is positively pressure by the blown air, then the water will flow away freely. Occasionally pouring a little bit of bleach through the drain system will help keep down the mold and slime from accumulating anywhere. You may also want to have a look at the surrounding areas where any of the moisture could have been leaking. Wall board will hold a lot of moisture in it and is a perfect host for the mold spores.
