Question about DUCTLESS mini split Air conditioners: Our

Question about DUCTLESS mini split Air conditioners:Our central air conditioner gave out after 15 years(diagnostic done by an hvac professional). I wasn't sure how much longer we'd be in the home, so I never got estimates on a replacement system, plus it's unaffordable at the moment. We are managing with window A.C.'s , a portable standing a.c., fans etc. On eBay, I came across 2 cooling methods that I'm completely unfamiliar with:Ductless mini spilt a.c./heat pump (this one by Mitsubishi). The other is on "Wayfair" it looks like the ductless, but it's just called "Seville Aura 12,000 but air conditioner with remote." What are these? How are they installed? Are the reasonable compared to a new central a.c. system?

Our Friedrich air conditioner (10 years old...but we only

Our Friedrich air conditioner (10 years old...but we only use it about 2 months a year) when set in "cold" mode has stopped working although the unit is on, and when we select "dry" mode it works for a while, turns off, and comes back on. Any clue as to why it shuts down when the temp in the room is higher than the thermostat setting?

I have a GE Window unit air conditioner (AEM23DAR1) that is

I have a GE Window unit air conditioner (AEM23DAR1) that is 24,500BTU. It shut off during a brown out and I am unable to get it restarted. I checked the fuse breaker panel--all good. I unplugged it. Turned the thermostat down and then waited about an hour to try to turn it on. Nothing. BTW, it is at least 15 years old and is an analog unit with knobs--nothing digital. Any thoughts?JA: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: It's all there in my original post. 15 years old, approx. GE AEM23DAR1JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: Possibly.

My outdoor air conditioner unit turns on but inside, it does

My outdoor air conditioner unit turns on but inside, it does not turn on and no air blows through the vents. Eventually the outdoor unit shuts off, and then it seems to try again a few minutes later. The heat works fine, and if I turn the fan on with no AC and no heat, it also works fine. I have double checked the thermostat and put a brand new air filter in. The air was working fine this season for quite a while before this occurred.

1 and 1/2 years ago I a brand attic heat pump and furnace

1 and 1/2 years ago I a brand attic heat pump and furnace installed. the heat pump is a CARRIER PERFORMANCE SERIES 15 SEER HEAT PUMP SYSTEM with a variable speed air handler- FV4ANF002T00 and the basement system is a SERIES 16 SEER A/C WITH GAS FURNACE with a two stage gas valve and a variable speed blower both came with Honeywell Vision Pro 8320 WIFI thermostats. My energy bills have gone up despite the fact that I keep my house at 68 in the winter and 77 in the summer. I started following my energy use and I am finding electric surges (4 kw per half hour) sporadically. The other day it was extremely hot - I noticed that my thermostat was set at 77 but the house was at 79 and the air coming in the vents was not cool. I shut off the system for a few minutes and then restarted it and cool air come out. The next day that coincided with one of these energy surges. I have called the install company several times over this issue but it doesn't happen when they are here so they think I am crazy. So - 1. is a energy surge from 1.2 to 4 for an hour normal? 2. I think either my thermostat or my air conditioner/furnace is getting stuck or tripped up during the kick into 'hi' cool (versus the low fan maintenance level) is that even possible? Thanks for any help! Dani
