1.30 Ducts - spring cleaning?

Q. Every spring companies advertise clearning of dirty air ducts in homes. They assert that the duct accumulate dust, and mold, and cleaning them reduces allergies. Is there any truth to this. Our house (30 yrs. old) has never had its "ducts cleaned." Please advise.

A. Many people do not realise the importance of cleaning fan coils and duct work. Although it may seem things are OK, you are potentially breeding harmful bacteria and may be suffering the side affects without knowing it. If not maintained, bacteria can build up within air conditioning coils, leading to flu like symptons, sick building syndrome and fatigue. I have put a page together here that will provide much more detailed information: http://www.ampleair.com.au/air-conditioning/Service-Maintenance/Domestic-Maintenance/Aeris-Guard-Anti-Bacterial-Treatment-Service.html Regards Jon http://www.ampleair.com.au

1.10 Servicing window type air conditioning units with sealed systems?

Q. I work in the Philippines where most of the window type air conditioning systems have no ports for adding refrigerant. There is supposedly a pinch connector you can use to puncture the line for servicing. The pinch remains in the line permanently. Where can I find more information on this adapter or pinch for servicing or recovering sealed A/C systems?

A. Bolt on service ports are available through most HVAC supply houses in the USA. These work well for recovery, but tend to leak if left in a system so I won't put them in anything that's going back into service.

1.10 One room in house hotter than all the others?

Q. I moved into a condo a couple of months ago, and my bedroom is hotter than all of the other rooms. I've had air conditioning technicians come out several times, and the repairs have added up to over $600, but I still have the problem. I can't think of any reason why my room is consistently hotter than all the others. I've had all my ductwork replaced because I was told that the ducts weren't insulated enough, and I've had dampers installed to make sure there's even air flow in every room. For instance, right now where I live it's about 60 degrees outside. I still have my air conditioner on, and it's about 70 degrees in every room, except my bedroom, which is about 78 degrees. I'm going out of my mind trying to figure out what the deal is. I'm assuming that there must be something in or around my room that is warming it up somehow. Has anyone else had this problem, do you have any idea what it could be? Is it possible for a room to get that hot just from electric things running it in? I have a ceiling fan that I keep on quite a bit. Could it be warming up and becoming counter-productive? I have thick, dark curtains over my windows, so I don't think it's the sun - esp. since it gets hotter at night. My room is small, I upgraded the vent in it from 7" to 8" because the AC guy told me it would fix the problem. No cathedral ceilings in my room, but there are in other rooms and they stay cool. The AC unit is on the roof, and I am on the top floor, thermostat is prob. about 10-20 feet from the AC unit. The thermostat is right outside my room. The water heater is in a room adjacent to mine, but I have felt the wall next to it and it is not hot - could that still be it?

A. Consider these points 1. Is your bedroom is adjacent to a utility closet or other source of heat? 2. Usually, poorly insulated ductwork will result in a loss of heat in the system causing the air to cool off before it is delivered to a room. 3. The room may be better insulated than the other rooms in your condo. Also, an open floor plan, cathedral ceilings, or an open loft will make air treatment very difficult. 4. Where is the thermostat located in relation to the ductwork and registers? If it is in a hard to heat area the bedroom will suffer the effect.

1.10 How can I service my air conditioning?

Q. As a happy homeowner with no technical knowledge what should I do for preventative maintainence.

A. About the only thing you can do as far as doing a P.M. on your system,make sure its clean(coils) this is for the condenser,make sure there is nothing blocking the airflow,wash the coils out maybe once a month,just use a water hose make sure you turn the unit off first,wash it out good,make sure there's no grass,debris growing or stuck around the unit,make sure the big copper line is insulated good,as far as the inside unit make sure the filter gets changed once a month and the coil is cleaned and unrestricted as far as airflow is concerned,make sure the rest of your home is checked for leaks(air),nothing worse than having all your cold air cooling down the birds and chipmunks,all the door seals and windows need to be checked for leaks.i commend for taking on the task for doing your on P.M.s you wouldn't believe how much you can catch and repair just doing a simple inspection,that's why they call it preventive maintenance

1.10 Any Air Conditioning experts out there?

Q. Hello. we are installing a Diesel Generator for running our house. We are off grid. We are buying a Cummins 15 KVA/12KW Prime Power Generator. This generator can supply 23 Amps per phase in the standby mode with a PF of .8 With the normal set up, we can run only 3, single phase 18,000 BTU ACs, one on each phase. I read somewhere that by installing Power factor Capacitors, we can install more than one AC on each phase. Do you know anything about that? Is it an easy task or do I need to get an engineering degree for this? I'm some what comfortable with doing electrical work and can do minor calculations as well. Any help would be really appreciated. Greetings from Iran

A. HVAC Tech.: You need an electrical engineer to solve this problem as it does not fit into Heating, venting, or air-conditioning.

Maintenance

 Air Conditioning - Maintenance Air conditioning maintenance cannot only increase the efficiency of your unit, but also avoid the need for AC repairs, and increase the life span of your unit. It is estimated that in the absence of air conditioner maintenance, your AC will lose up to 5% of its cooling capacity each year. With regular central air conditioner maintenance however, you can keep your unit functioning at its original efficiency for years on. Lack of maintenance can drag down the efficiency of your system, leading to massive power bills. In fact, maintaining your AC is considered an important part of increasing the life span of your unit. As your filters get clogged and the heat absorbing capacity of your evaporator coil is impacted, you can expect the life span of your unit to reduce each year.

 AC company in Fullerton, California Central air conditioner maintenance involves a few simple tips. The most important task is to clean the filters regularly, or get them replaced. A filter that is packed with millions of dust particles can obstruct air flow, and drag down the efficiency of your air conditioner. Besides, these dust particles may be carried by air into the evaporated coil where it can impact the heat absorbing capacity of your coil. During peak season, your filter must be replaced at least every month. Check hose connections regularly, and look for leaks. Keep the outside compressor clean by hosing it, and vacuum air vents and registers frequently. Place your furniture and curtains away from registers, and keep plants away from the unit to allow optimum air flow. Hire an air conditioner maintenance technician to conduct a complete servicing and tune up of your unit at least once a year. Preferably, get your unit serviced just before the cooling season begins.

Investing a small amount in annual AC preventive maintenance can lead to substantial savings in repairs and operating costs down the line.
