Blog Title: What to do when air conditioner heater does not work?

Main Que: When I put my air conditioner on heat, the outside unit does not turn on. The unit turns on when I turn on the fan. Everything except heat is working. Do I need to give it few days before it starts working?

Answer: This depends on weather the system is Heat Pump or not. If the system does not come on when turned into heat mode, and if it is a heat pump, you may have problems with the wiring. One can not be completely sure about whats wrong with the system and hence you will definitely need a hvac contractor to have a look at it. But this might give you an idea regarding what might be wrong.
