    Re: Air Condition unit doesn't work

    Simply because you can 'find' the replacement parts for less 'on-line' or anywhere else for that matter, what is your plan to check out the operation of the unit after you perform this 'repair?'

  2. Re: Buzzing coming from AC unit after it shuts off

    The buzzing you are hearing is probably the contactor or more likely a transformer. The contactor is not usually going to be energized unless there is a call for cooling; then it draws in the...

    Re: Air filter Location?

    There are 'return filter grilles' made for this very purpose. Be sure though, that if you are going to use this, that you have one at every return. If it is a single, central return, then no...

    Re: damper adjustment

    Even though this sounds like a relatively simple process, I would strongly recommend a professional be brought in to assess the situation.

    Re: How can I reduce blower noise?

    I agree, that more information would be helpful in trying to determine where the noise originates. Certainly insulation of the return cabinet would help; although insulation of the closet itself...
  7. Re: Any coils compatible with both R-22 and R-410?

    Kevin, most if not all your evaporator coils are compatible with either R-22 or R410a. The problem with mixing them up is two-fold. First of all, if you are replacing an outdoor unit (formerly R22)...

    Whole house fans to bring back memories, i.e. pre-central air conditioning, polution, indoor air quality, etc.

    Re: Ceiling Fan Dilemma

    I agree with ed21 as this sounds like 'cross-bracing' that is used when the trusses are set and the ceiling joists are framed. This keeps everything 'square' during the framing process and at this...

    Could be too much air as indicated earlier, but could also be addressed with another type of RA grille that is less-retrictive. I would have some one take a look at it (professional) and make...

    Re: Have no ducts, but need AC on 2nd floor

    Agree with djohns that a second floor a/c system should be easy enough to provide. If the second floor ceiling also has radiant heat, then that may limit what you can do. Otherwise, there are...

    Not really knowing the configuration of the filter in respect to the equipment, I don't know if 'too tall' would adversely affect it or not. I would venture to say you would be okay if it extended...
