chrisprickett Posted January 9, 2004 Report Share Posted January 9, 2004 I went to look at a potential rental property yesterday (for me) and when I looked in the side yard, the condenser was running, and had iced over. I asked the seller why she had the a/c on (it was about 60 out) and she said she didn't. Sure enough, the thermostat was off and the air handler wasn't running. I shut off the power to the disconnect, and told her to get an HVAC guy out there to look at it. She aked me if that would cause her electric bill to be high And said it bill had been very high the last 4 months[!] The house is only 11 months old, split system heat/ a/c. I'm thinking a condenser that has been running non-stop for 4 months is pretty much toast. Questions: What would cause the condenser to run when it's set to be off, and also, is the condenser worth fixing?[:-football] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
