Central Air Conditioners are the traditional heating - cooling solution installed in most modern housing; utilizing ducts to distribute conditioned air to one or more area. Central Air systems offer the most versatility and options in terms of multi-zone temperature control and add-ons. Central units come in sizes up to 5+ tons (60000 BTU's) for large volume applications but generally require HVAC experience to complete installation. Modular 2-piece design allows for upflow, downflow, counterflow and horizontal installations.

What is a Central air Conditioner?
A Central Air Conditioner is the traditional heating - cooling solution installed in most modern housing; utilizing ducts to distribute conditioned air to one or more area. Central Air systems offer the most versatility and options in terms of multi-zone temperature control and add-ons. Central units come in sizes up to 5+ tons (60,000 BTUs) for large volume applications but generally require HVAC experience to complete installation. Modular 2-piece design allows for upflow, downflow, counterflow and horizontal installations

Why would a central air conditioning unit not blow any air in the house?
Indoor air fan is not functioning. For that, there are many possibilities.

Where should you locate the AC vents in a room for maximum cooling and efficiency?
Vents should be situated near windows. Windows that are north or west facing should get a vent before a south or east facing window would get one. (Assuming that the vents also supply heat.)

How much would it cost to have duct work and vents installed in 2 rooms?
It depends upon the amount of work involved and the cost of doing business in your neighborhood.This is a time and materials job. Way too many factors to even give a guess. Is the home a ranch or two-story? On a slab? Unfinished basement? Finished basement? Are the rooms in question upstairs or down? Are the steel joists supporting the house? Is the house drywalled or plastered? Are the interior walls some special material, like brick or stone? How far from the furnace? How far from the nearest existing duct runs? Are the floors tiled, carpeted or hardwood?

What should you do when your central compressor is running but the cooling fan is not?
Check the capacitor located inside the outside condensing unit,usually the fan,compressor are wired together,if one is running the other should be running.

What problems would you expect by closing off one of two return air vents?
Your AC would tend to lose some of its cooling capacity as it would not have significant air changes on the portion of the house where the return is closed.

Is it more economical to run the fan "On" always or should I have the fan set to Auto?
Not necessarily. I would caution you to watch the Relative Humidity in the Home. Depending on EACH system, the amount of moisture that lays in your drain pans is then put back into the conditioned space when you continuously circulate the fan. If you are in a tropical environment, this is not the most efficient way to operate your system. The home may actually "feel" warmer when the air conditioning comes back on. This effect is caused by the changing of moisture in your home. Moist air is lighter than dry air, so when you start the dehumidification the moisture rises. The removal of moisture is the biggest cost associated with the conditioning of the air. You be the judge, as you will notice whether you are cooler and saving in your electrical consumption.

What type of Refrigerant is used?
Our Central Air Conditioners are pre-charged with the new eco-friendly R410A refrigerant.

Why would your central AC fail to reach the thermostat set temperature?
Make sure your air filter is clean. A dirty air filter can block air flow. If both the fan and the compressor are coming on, there may be a low charge. If only the fan is coming on, the compressor could be burned up.

How long should it take for a central unit to lower the temperature by 1 degree?
There are several factors to consider, do you have high humidity, how many people are in the house at the time, is it real hot outside, etc. If it takes 30 minutes to bring the temp down 1 degree that is probably too long. You may have a leak in your system and need to add refrigerant.

Where would a leak in a home AC system probably be?
This question is too broad. If it is a refrigerant leak it is most likely in one of the 2 coils. It could also be in the line set wherever the copper lines were joined with couplings and elbows. It is also possible that the line set has been punctured with a nail during construction or home improvement .

What is the best way to clear a clogged condensate drain in a central air conditioner?
More than likely, the clog is a clump of algae / mold. A solution of bleach and water cold help reduce the growth. A quicker solution is o replace the line, but it may not be accessible compressed air use a blow gun seal whith a rag and give a good burst of air some kits are sold for this that uses co2 cartridges same as the cartriges used in pellet guns.

What is wrong with your AC if the fan is blowing but the compressor is not working?
It is possible that the circuit breaker for the compressor unit is thrown (switched to "off"). Go outside to the compressor unit and follow the big cable up to the circuit breaker panel on the wall. If it is off, throw the switch to "on." If that is not the problem, something is probably wrong with the compressor unit. Turn off the breaker panel and call a repairman
