The best way to describe the structure is to think of it as the basement of an apartment building. Each apartment has a parking spot. The owner of my parking spot built a garage box on it and rents it out. The lighting outside of the box (in the underground corridor let's say) is on a 30s timer, and is either switch-activated or activated when the underground garage door opens. Inside my box there is no electricity, and no lighting. The only sources of light are this timed outside light or the daylight coming in from the underground garage door if I lock it open.
Now the ventilation does exist, although I doubt it can handle me running a generator down there.
@RobertS.Barnes - That's a huge difference! I wonder if it was done under cylinder pressure. As pressure increases, so does the spark. I don't know the physics of it, but I know the pressure interferes with how the spark does its thing.
Like JPhi1618 mentioned, check if it's cold outside. Your A/C won't work below certain temperatures.
The A/C system contains refrigerant which will be 'exhausted'(correct me pls) or leaked out.
When there is not enough pressure, the A/C keeps turning on/off in the beginning. After some time it w...
There are several things wrong with this answer as I can see it. Plus comments are not leading in the right direction. Is there anyway to guide this a little better? I feel like I'm stepping on his toes.
A/C does work in cold temps, I see it every year when I turn the defrost on in my vehicle (I guess not all vehicles do this, but most here in the States do).
I'm not an HVAC expert, so hoping someone could jump in on it, if they felt so inclined.
Let's see. How shall I spend my morning? Writing test code for a branch that probably won't live long or writing a technical summary of a research project that didn't go quite as well as I'd hoped. Hm. Choices!
Dear Stackexchange, this whole modding thing would be easier if I had a bigger, newer phone. Just hinting....
@MoveMoreCommentsLinkToTop - I have no clue when the next time I'm headed to NC. I'm still working on Lee's Impreza swap. When I get that done, It'll be bringing it down there and towing your old Camaro back up.
I might get time to work on the Impreza this weekend. The wife and daughter will be at VA Beach for a band competition.
@Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 I miss the days of my buddy having a car trailer I could use anytime I wanted. I even tried to buy it from him, and he was like no, why buy it. You can use it anytime you need it. about a year later he sold it :(
@MoveMoreCommentsLinkToTop It's a small one with a lot of individual LED's. Does it make a difference? I could run a generator on the outside ramp provided it doesn't block traffic. That would definitely work although probably not the most discreet solution. :)
I don't want to seem like I am shooting down all proposals here. I am just actively trying to brainstorm and collect ideas pros and cons.
@JoErNanO I don't feel shut down at all, just brainstorming with you. If you do set the generator outside just get a quite one. I am assuming you only have one car correct? Also what's your budget for this?
@MoveMoreCommentsLinkToTop - It's funny you mention this. We have a lady in our van pool. Myself and another guy continually tease her with Right Said Fred ... gives her an "earworm" all day long! It's awesome :o)
@JoErNanO The Honda inverter/generator (Noise LevelP: 59 dB at rated load 53dB at 1/4 load) as been the standard for a long time, but they are expensive. There however some less expensive options, but even those are outside of you budget.
Dammit automotive press: don't fuss about the slight increase in BRZ power if they also shortened the final drive ratio. Tell me about the result in performance! I super don't care about bench numbers. Grump Grump!
The compressor turning off immediately is usually a sign of a safety mechanism kicking in. A sensor is most likely causing the compressor to disengage. It's probably due to one of two conditions:
An over-pressurized line. It would be dangerous to compress liquid where the system is already in a...
^ that answer and this answer represent most of my knowledge of A/C Systems:
For an A/C system to be functioning correctly, you need:
In the cabin:
something to exchange cold (an evaporator)
something to move air over the evaporator (the fan)
a working blend door that allows the user to select heat or cold
In the engine compartment:
something to exchange heat (a ra...
The heater core is part of continuous loop of engine coolant propelled via the water pump, flowing through caverns in the engine, through pipes that run through the firewall into the heater core, back out the firewall, and finally through the radiator. If the thermostat dictates it (due to a temp...
If anyone's looking to collect A/C and Heat answers into an FAQ of sorts, those 3 are worthwhile.
