I have a LG Art Cool Mirror 1 ton. I just turned it on for the season. The fan never stops running I notice but the compressor does.
This was installed last year to cool a large upstairs room. The room has 2 AC vents from the Central Unit but in Texas during summer the upstairs needs help. It's a pretty big room. I don't mind the fan running per-se' because the LG unit is on the opposite end of the the room from the vents and the stairwell. So it pulls air across the room when cold air from the vents would tend to just drop down the stairwell.
Still... is it supposed to operate that way? The manual for these units are not very good. Or is the fan supposed to turn off when the compressor does like my central unit does.
This compressor has the inverter technology which I think means the compressor operates at multi speeds. Maybe the running fan is part of that?
Thank you for your help.
