I recently moved into a new home that has 3 conventional Carrier HVAC
units. We typically leave the fan on constant at night for background
noise. If I turn the fan on constant on these units the fan will
"pause" for about 10 sec when the heater comes on. Is there a way I
can make the fan on these units stay on constant without this?
Thanks for any help
No... that pause is probably the fan changing speeds and is mechanicaly
interlocked to prevent multiple blower speeds being energized at the same
time. If 2 or more speeds are energized at the same time, you will let the
factory installed smoke out of the motor and it can be very expen$ive to get
the smoke put back in.
Depending on the type of stat you have they have diffent fan settings. Some
have a circ feature which will do what you are stating, If it is a VP8000
thwey will have this. Check each progfram time and see how it is set. You
want them all to on.
