Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?
I replaced my filter on my Coleman Mach 2006 year model with a reusable 7x16 and it is frezzing up. The original filter was a 16x16 and appeared to be much thinner. I replaced it with 7x16 because that was all that was available and that is about the size of the return air inlet.
The problem is my ac lines now begin to freeze if it doesnt cycle quick enough. Could the air filter be the problem? Is it to thick?
Your new filter is restricting the air flow to much go back to the origanal filter

My central a/c has a problem with water dripping from the cooling coils and getting down on my air filter below. The filter then turns black with mold. I have a very expensive filter (Aprilaire) so replacing it all the time is a problem. The a/c cools the house fine. The drain isn't clogged and the filters are new. What is causing this and how can it be fixed?

Carrier furnace I have been having an enormous amount of dust in the last 8 months and wonder if it could be my furnace. I have replaced the filters to the returns monthly and have purchased an air filter and checked my drier vent but no solutions so far. .
Furnaces do not generate dust. Dust comes from air born polluters, such as near by construction, heavy flow of people, or seasonal. If this problem persists you can check into an air purifier. I am an Ecoquest dealer and can ... Carrier XHB123D X/Y Series Heat/Cool Air Conditioner
I have a ten year old carrier heat pump unit. I recently replaced the indoor tstat. the outside contact and the transformer. Had a tech put freon in the unit also. I have to problems one is the airflow is minimal coming out of the vents it has new air filter and I cleaned the inside and outside unit coils. And the second problem is the ac with not get cold.
Two things are the most likely culprit. First check ytour inside coil with the unit running for 10 minutes or more and see if the coil is sweating there should be water running off of it. Also after one hour is there ice forming on it. These problems ... Air Conditioners
In Dec 07 I had a complete Carrier AC/Gas Heating System installed in my home to replace my original system when my house was built in 1983.We upgraded the new system to 3-TON AC as the old AC was 2 and half ton. Since the new system was installed in the winter time it was not until the hot weather started in May that a problem arose. The first conclusion of the problem was that the coil was aligne incorrect the second was that we needed more air return so an addition vent was added. No
Air conditioning requires 400 cfm (cubic feet per minute) per ton of cooling so your old 2.5 ton system would have required 1000 cfm and your new 3 ton requires 1200 cfm. This is not a big change, but if your ductwork is too small it could cause pro ... Carrier Air Conditioners
OUr air conditioning system works well until the circuit breaker trips. We added another large return vent in the hall to try to get more air circulating and that didn't work. We just replaced the outdoor airconditioning unit and the circuit trips again. The electrician says the wattage is fine. Any ideas what could be the problem. Everyone is baffled because the house is only 5 years old.

Regarding the installation of the f500 honeywell filter system. does the output of the filter system get ported into the return air prior to the air handeler?

My unit has never worked properly as it is dripping water and ruining my wall and my filters. The business that installed my unit is giving me the run around and ignoring my requests to fix my unit once and for all. They have been to my house multiple times with different "solutions" to this problem. The last time I was able to get anyone on the phone from Air Masters, the owner told me that he would replace my unit with a new one, but that you guys would not stand behind your product. Now,

My Dyna Pro 65,000 forced air heater will light, but then flickers and eventually blows itself out. I've replaced the air and gas lines as they were cracked. I also replaced the air filters, cleaned the gas filter and cleaned the nozzle and photocell lense. I've also put new fuel (kerosine) in the tank. Any ideas? Where do I go next? Thanks, Jeff

We have had a coleman central air system for 5 yrs. It stopped blowing cold air into the house about a week ago. You can still here it running but no air is coming out. my husband replaced the fuses and over night it did the same thing so when my husband went to check out the unit outside he said that the line had ice on it. Is there a filter within the central air unit that needs replaced?
Ice is an indication that the refrigerant is not flashing off correctly in the evaporator coil. In most cases you can simply turn the unit off (until it completely thaws inside and out) and replace the filter. Make sure that all the vents in the hous ... Coleman Air Conditioners

Central air only blows a small amount of cool air out the vents. After running 12 hours it only cooled my small 1BR apartment 3 degrees. The filter has not been replaced since October 2009 but I can't seem to get it out of it's little slot at the bottom of the unit. It's a Goodman Manufacturing Model Number ARUF024-00-1A.

I have a Carrier whole house Air Conditioner I want to replace. It is model 38EN048320. @ things: 1. What "ton" is that AC rated at? It's so old I can't find what size it is so hard to pick a replacement. 2. With todays models they are all high efficency, should I get the same size replacement or can you step down a notch based on the efficency in models made today? I know a contractor would figure this all out but I'm doing this job myself as I have done this before.
