    New to Air Conditioning - need some help

    Hello,
    I just purchased my mom house in Florida and she had a list for leaving the home vacant,
    but my question is while I am here. The system has a humidistat wired in series along with
    the thermostat. At first it appears the system is working fine, but I notice at night when
    things are quiet that the tstat fan is constantly running. If I get up on a chair I can feel
    a gentle air flow at all times.
    Is this normal or something to be concerned about?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Shouldn't be a problem lots of homes run the fan 24/7 for circulation.

    Its a 20 yr old Nordyne ASCD series - says Miller on only readable badge.

    My concern is it supposed to run continuous?

    There are numerous possibilites of what it could be. Get a pro out to look at it,could be simple(tstat issues) or a little complicated. Or just set up to run that way. Without any numbers I can't help you over the WWW.
