That should not cause any problems. The fan merely draws in air which is then cooled and blows out the cooled air. The fan should be able to run 24/7 without any problem

i just built a new home with forced air have returns in all rooms except basement?
25 years in HVAC and have never seen or heard of returns in every room. If you have supply air in the basement then just leave the basement door open or put a register in the door as a return.
This is assuming your furnace is upstairs. If the furnace is in the basement, splice a return on to one of the return ducts
why does my central air conditioner freeze up and stop working?
Your filter could be dirty, or you are low on freon.

About central air conditioner?
Heat pumps do very well in Southern California.
The only things you really need to weigh are 1. The initial installation cost, and 2. The price difference in paying for the electric to run the heat pump, or the gas to run the furnace.
That just requires a little homework. Either way, you'll get a very efficient unit compared to your 30 year old antique. P.
S. check with the Gas & Electric companies in your area for possible rebates. That might also factor in to your decision.
Power went out and now central air conditioner does not work. Is it fried?

What is the tube covered in black foam that comes out of a central air conditioner? and to add to what has been said, if there is moisture dripping it means humid air is condensing on the cold refrigerant line.
That is an indication the compressor is working. There may be ice blocking the coils inside the unit where the blower is, the fan unit inside the garage or closet in the house or wherever. The moisture condenses on the coils then freezes preventing air from blowing through and becoming cool.
You didn't say this was happening but just in case
Why does the central air conditioner coil and fins in my furnace leak water to the floor?
I had the same problem and what I found out is that the water pipe that goes from the AC to drain the condensation was clogged. Usually it is a PVC pipe.

my central air conditioner will not come on, what do i do?
When did you turn it on initially?Was it really cold outside?
If it was, you may have fried the compressor. Call an HVAC contractor to look at it. However, go outside and see if there is a shutoff box.
It would be a box between the outside unit and the house on the electrical line. Open this up and make sure that the shut-off is intact. If you are missing the plug, it won't work.
my central air conditioner "freezes up" near the unit outside my home. What is the cause and what is the cure?
Low refrigerant level most likely.
Since its central air you'll probably have to call a service tech to check the refrigerant pressure. Also, check to make sure the coils are clean
what's wrong with my (central) air conditioner?
Sounds like it's low on freon, however if it's low on freon then you have a leak somewhere because those systems are not just suppose to go low.

I have a house without an attic. Is there a kind of central air conditioner I can install?
hello, i have worked in the a/c field for 4 years.
went to school for another 2. so there is always alternatives. you can install window a/c units in each room that needs a/c.
every 400 to 500 sq. ft. is 1 ton of cooling which is 12,000 btu/h.
you need to look on the boxes that the window units come and and they will say how many btu/h they can handle. if u need more info just go to home depot and ask some one in the hvac/plumbing department for help
Plug on air conditioner melted and burned black. Can we replace the plug/cord- or trash the whole unit?
The unit is defective if it trips the breaker, and draws so much current as to overheat its cord or plug. You're lucky you didn't have a house fire. Repeated tripping of breakers is a serious warning!
Buy a new air conditioner, and make sure that the old one is never put into use again. By the way, air conditioners must be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way that does not allow the refrigerant to escape into the atmosphere.
Are Tempstar central air units any good?
My installer is recommending a R2A3 unit.
that unit is a 13 seer. It's not the best on the market but it's not the worst either.
remember. the best AC money can buy is worthless if it's not sized and installed properly. You have to look at the installers just as much as the product, if not more.

My air conditioner isnt working properly?
Wrong section. This place is only about maintenance and repairs for automobiles.
However, I would guess that the compressor in your AC is stuck and either needs to be replaced or to have an add-on capacitor installed to help get it started. You're just going to have to call a repairman, as messing around inside a home air conditioner can be dangerous if you touch the wrong wires.

You can wait till fall. if you have a window type then i believe you can do it yourself, all you need is nice water supply, brush, detergent and poly-bags to wrap electrical parts. or for time being till fall comes keep the intake filter clean and then get it services.
You might get some video on youtube to service a/c its easy thing.
central air conditioner unit?
Make sure your outside unit (condenser) is running when you turn on the a/c.
Maybe a breaker tripped. It does happen.You turned it off overnight and still no cold.
It is not freezing up. If the outside unit is running and you don't blow cold you need service call.

Why won't my Air conditioner won't turn on?
The coolant may have leaked and the device may be fitted with some sort of cutout.
You need to take it apart and look for clues. Do you have an operator's manual? If you're not confident/competant in this field it would be best to have the appliance serviced under a maintenance contract and to have it serviced each year.
Should I install my Air Conditioner by myself?
Most of Canada is frozen for up to 3/4 of the year. Dont be fooled by the heat it usually lasts for two weeks.

By the way,to install A/C you will rqr. certification

You are pulling your cool air into the attic, overworking your A/C It may be advantageous to run the attic fan at night, with an open window, if the night is cool.
who knows about air conditioners? help please!?
HA! I'm in Florida and my house MIGHT get to 70 at night if I ran the unit non-stop, and the unit is brand new. Personally I don't see the need to make any house colder than 75.
It's just a waste of energy. Have the A/C checked by a tech. Check your filter.
Check all potential sources of air leaks. See how much insulation your house has. Are there rooms where you can shut off air flow to increase cool air to the rest of the house?
