Frequently Asked Questions:
Why Is Air-Conditioning Cold?
When You Turn On The Air Conditioner, Shouldn'T It Allow You The Option Of Hot Or Cold? Isn'T It Cold And Hot Air Conditioning?
Mathew just about has it right but not quite.
The freon gas in the system is compressed by the compressor. When you compress any gas it will concentrate the heat that is in the gas. (Note 1) In the compression state you need to take out the heat and the gas will change to a liquid, that happens at the condenser in front of the radiator. The now high pressure liquid comes around to the expansion valve or orifice tube which ever you have, the liquid is then sprayed into the evaporator coils in the car. When you spray a liquid into the lower pressure side it will turn cold,(Note 2) that cold is then exposed to the heat in the car by the coils in the evaporator and the fan blowing air over them. The process is done over and over until it is shut down.
Note 1 That is how the diesel engine ignites the fuel.
Note 2 Take any spray can and spray it on your finger, it is cold.

Which Is Better Forced Air Or Hot Water Heat?
I Grew Up With Hot Water Heat And I Like It Better Than Forced Air, My House I Have Now Has Forced Air And Its Ok, My Work Has It Too, Like Forced Air Is Kind Of Loud And It Kinda Feels Cold A Few Minutes Later After It Shuts Off Since Hot Water Still Has Heat Coming Out When It Shuts Off, And Forced Air Clicks On And Off More Cause Of That, Although With Forced Air It Does Filter The Air Out In Your House And You Can Have A Humidifier With It, And You Can Have Air Conditioning With It Too Which I Like
The simple reason that forced air systems are so prevalent is because they are cheap to install. When a contractor is building a house or subdivision that does not have a guaranteed buyer they install the cheaper option on most everything, that way they can price it more competitively. Forced air is inefficient, unsanitary, loud, and bulky. It costs more up front for a radiant heat system of any form because the hardware is more costly. The savings can add up over time though, and it is now possible to couple radiant heat with green technology via the use of passive solar, active solar, and geothermal.
Air Condition System In My Car?
I Have A Weird Problem With My A/C Unit In My Car. I Have A Older Car In Which I Believe Their Is A Small Leak In The A/C Unit. Recently, I Put Coolant (Or Whatever That Stuff Is You Place In The A/C) Into The Car.
For Some Strange Reason The A/C Blows Cold Air In The Morning Hours And Late Afternoon. It Only Blows Hot Air In The Mid-Afternoon Hours (The Time I Need It The Most).
It Is To My Understanding That The A/C Coils Good Be To Hot For The Unit To Kick In. The Part I Am Confused About Is That If It Is 90 Degrees In The Mid-Afternoon And It Is 90 Degrees In The Late Afternoon, Then Why Does It Only Work In The Late Afternoon?
I'm going to suspect you added R-12 refrigerant, not coolant. probably your A/C thermostat isn't working, or your A/C pump clutch needs servicing. Trace the two aluminum pipes from your compressor/pump then turn on the car and start the A/C wait two-three minutes, safely feel them, one should be cold near the radiator)and one should be hot(near the passenger side). If there's no difference, you have a problem with the pump or clutch.
If there's a difference, then it's the A/C thermostat located in the passenger compartment.
Do All Honeywell Thermostat Systems Come With Air Conditioning And Heating Properties?
Its Summer And Its Really Hot But I Reduce The Thermostat But My House Won'T Get Cooler.
Its probably not a thermostat problem. Make sure you have it switched to cool. What temp are you setting it at? Either the unit is doing the best it can and is not able to maintain the temp you want ( say if you're trying to get it down below 70 or something) or there is something wrong with the unit
