SOURCE: Carrier air handler tonnage?

That is a fairly large difference. It is usually ok to have the inside evap. coil and blower up to 1 ton larger than the outside condenser. That will make the unit slightly more efficient as well as less likely to freeze up on low airflow situations. It is not recommended to install a new condenser on an old evap coil. There has been a lot of changes to the design of the coils in the last little while. For example a 10 year old 2 ton coil may only have 3 cubic feet of volume but a new 2 ton coil may have 4 cubit feet of volume.

There are many factors that may have infulenced the decision on what size condenser to install. Many of which can only be done by visiting the home and doing alot of work, checking the duct sizing bioth supply and return, inspecting the insulation and windows of the home etc. etc. Most of the time that never gets done. You can blame the contractor for not doing a complete check, but at the same time you can blame the customer because many contractors that are that good loose the job to a cheaper bid that did not no any of the research. It is a catch 22 for everyone involved.

There is ALOT more to sizing equipment that many people think, sadly that also includes many HVAC contractors. Way too many people use "rule of thumbs" or flat out "guess".

Sorry for the rant but your queston can only be answered by a good well educated HVAC contractor visiting your home. That type of a contractor is getting hard to find these days in such a price competetive world.

SOURCE: My Carrier AC fan will not turn, only blows out warm air.

Breaker has popped either at breaker box or at the safety shut off switch. Fuses are blown or the sending unit has popped.

BAR888A -Changed batteries house (1st) & outside unit(2nd.) Now inside unit not receiving signal. Only thing registering is inside temp. Outside unit is also showing temp.


Remove all batteries. Install batteries in outside unit and allow time for it to begin sending temperature. Install batteries in inside unit. You should see outside temperature displayed. If not, the outside unit could be defective.

Do akes lay eggs or do they birth


Depends on the snake.

Not all snakes lay eggs--70% of them do, while the rest give live birth. Snakes that give birth to their young without laying eggs are called viviparous. These snakes live in colder climates, where eggs would not incubate as well. Snakes that lay eggs fall into two categories, oviparous and ovoviviparous. The eggs have a hard shell that protects them, and they are usually placed under leaf litter or loose soil, or within a hollow stump or burrow.

How do I get it to display outside temperature?


Usually, batteries have to be installed in the remote unit first, followed by house unit. Allow time for the remote unit to begin sending data to the house unit, then you should see it displayed.

I have an Abode 5 in 1 rice cooker/warmer steamer egg poacher/Noodle boiler, I would like to know how to use the egg poacher function


I have exactly the same as you, to use the egg poacher
1. put water in inner pot
2. wipe outside portion of inner pot, put inner pot into unit, turn it slightly from left to right to ensure the pot and the heating plate has a good contact
3. connect electrical cord and press switch to start cooking
4. let the water boil
5. break each egg into the hole of the poacher
6. put the egg poacher on top of the inner pot
7. cover the unit
8. cook for 3 to 5 minutes

this is what it says in the manual I hope it helps

MY AC WORKS FOR FOUR HOURS PER DAY AND BARELY COOLS DOWN THE HOUSE, NOT MUCH AIR COMING UP TO THE UPSTAIRS OF THE HOUSE. AFTER 4 HOURS, THE OUTSIDE UNIT SHUTS UP AND NOT MORE COOL AIR COMES IN. BEFORE THIS...


I am not understanding exactly what is happening with your unit. You say it only runs for 4 hours a day and then say that after 4 hours the outside unit shut off. But you don't describe the condition of the outside unit! Is there ice on your outside unit after it runs for four hours or is it so hot that the housing would fry an egg? Since it works for four hours and then stops working, I would guess that ice forms on the condenser grill which tells the thermostat that your air is much colder than it actually is. Then it takes time for the ice to melt off again. Am I close? If so this condition is usually caused by your unit being low on freon making everything work harder. But it could also mean that you have a leak in the system somewhere. But it shouldn't be much of a leak or it wouldn't run for the 4 hours.
I would recommend you charge it to the correct level and then check for leaks.

Make sure circuit breaker for the outside unit is on or the fuses are good whichever you have. If they are on you can check the capacitor in the outside unit. The capacitor will be a round or oval can and can be metal or plastic. You can also look at the contactor to see what shape it's in.
