An outdoor unit which houses the fan condenser and compressor and an indoor unit which holds the evaporator and fan.
Ac unit temperature drop attic duct.
If the temperature in your area rarely gets that hot wait until as hot a day as possible to test.
Put one into a return duct closest to the unit as possible.
The result is that air your furnace or ac has already treated is losing energy back into the attic.
The system should be blowing air that is noticeably cooler than the building s air.
To reset the switch you ll need to climb up into.
So even though there s no single ideal temperature you do want a 16 22 f difference from the supply air and return air.
It also means that the air in those ducts is continually exposed to the ambient temperature in the attic.
Well there s not a universal fixed temperature your ac should always be blowing.
So why put an hvac system up in the attic at all.
There too unless the supply duct is long uninsulated running in a hot space such as an attic the air temperature at the supply register should be around 55 degrees.
Then allow the ac unit to run at least 15 minutes.
In addition to making the unit hard to get to for service high attic heat can trigger the high pressure limit switch turning your condenser off.
An attic can get up to about 130 f in the summer and the conditioned air entering the ducts is about 55 f or so.
2009 ashrae hof chapter 4 equation 48 pg 4 21 this calculator estimates the temperature drop or rise of air flowing in a duct.
Although both the attic floor and the ductwork are insulated ted recognizes the situation isn t ideal.
Going up into an attic and seeing ductwork running every which way is not an uncommon sight.
You should expect a 15 to 20 degree temperature differential from the air temp going in and the air temp coming out after the unit has been running a period of time.
Put another into a supply duct as close to the unit as possible.
Place the thermometer on a vent and leave it in.
As long as the building has not reached its thermostat s set point.
Attic hvac systems save space.
The temperature your ac puts out is relative to the temperature you set on your thermostat.
Most updated central air conditioned homes have a new air conditioner split system meaning the ac is broken up into parts.
I suggest you use 2 accurate thermometers.
Calculates the temperature change of air flowing in a duct reference.
Ted also has inherited a powered attic ventilator.
If you ve studied heat transfer at all you may recall that the rate at which heat moves from a warmer to a cooler body depends on the temperature difference which we abbreviate as δt.
Instructions input information may generally be be obtained from design documents or field measurements.
Summer hasn t even arrived he notes in a post at gba s q a forum and when the temperature outside climbs to more than 95 f the temperature in the attic tops 120 f.
