I purchased a 2005 GREE Portable A/C Unit today. When I got it home and looked inside the vents all I saw was green mold. I have been able to remove the bottom panel - no issue. Needs a cleaning but nothing nefarious. However, I cannot remove the top portion - or so it seems - no screws or bolts. How do I get the cover off so that I can clean the air vents?

I have a 2 story home. Each floor has its own ac unit. We

I have a 2 story home. Each floor has its own ac unit. We just bought the home and don't know much about the units. The upstairs unit works well. It blows strong cold air. We got new filters and installed them into the ceiling output vents upstairs. In the downstairs, the air is not very strong and not very cool. It turns on and runs but doesn't cool very well. I found the output air vents to try to put in filters to help with efficiency, but I cant tell if they are supposed to have filters. Not sure where to start.JA: Sometimes HVAC issues that that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The HVAC Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the HVAC Technician should know?Customer: The outside units are located in the same place and do not have branches or leaves blocking air circulation.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the HVAC Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

A friend has an old Burnham boiler that is leaking about 1

A friend has an old Burnham boiler that is leaking about 1 drop every 5 seconds. Is this a good candidate for introducing a Hercules sealing solution to plug the leak from the inside, or should he replace the boiler? Is there danger with that chemical to mess up the zone valves or circulator?

I have a wiel McLain gas hot water boiler to heat my home.

I have a wiel McLain gas hot water boiler to heat my home. When we leave on vacation for about 2 weeks, I always shut the water off at the meter to prevent my basement from flooding in case of a broken pipe. I live in Michigan so winters are cold. I set my thermostats at 58 to 60 degrees F. When I got home about a week ago, I turned the water back on and the lines seem to need a little water. Also the boiler. WHY? I thought with a closed circuit on my boiler, it would not need any water. I cannot find any leaks whatsoever in the system. Can you explain?
