Air conditioner seems to run too much
The current air conditioner
replaced an older model. The
use of more efficient components
may cause the air
conditioner to run longer than an older model, but the total
energy consumption
will be less. Newer air conditioners
do
not emit the "blast" of cold air you may be accustomed
to
from older units, but this is not an indication of lesser cooling
capacity or efficiency. Refer to the efficiency rating (EER) and
capacity rating (in Btu/h) marked on the air conditioner.
The air conditioner is in a heavily occupied room, or heat-
producing appliances are in use in the room. Use exhaust
vent fans while cooking or bathing and try not to use heat-
producing appliances during the hottest part of the day. A
higher capacity air conditioner
may be required, depending
on the size of the room being cooled.
Air conditioner cycles on and off too much or does not
cool
The Mode is set to Power Saver (on some models). Use
Power Saver only when you are asleep or away from home,
since the fan does not circulate the room air continuously,
Use Low, High or Turbo for your best comfort.
The air conditioner is not properly sized for your room.
Check the cooling capabilities
of your room air conditioner.
Room air conditioners
are not designed to cool multiple
rooms.
The filter is dirty or obstructed
by debris. Clean the filter.
The inside evaporator
and outside condenser
coils are
dirty or obstructed by debris. See "Annual Maintenance,"
There is excessive heat or moisture (open container
cooking, showers, etc.) in the room. Use a fan to exhaust
heat or moisture from the room. Try not to use heat-
producing appliances during the hottest part of the day.
