    Relay question

    Is a relay only used for heating or cooling also? This would be in a split residential system.

    Depending on the system it could easily be both.

    if it is for cooling then would I find it in the condenser outside or the air handler inside?

    Agreed.


    Could possibly be a start relay, if its in the OD unit. Most often you'll see a relay in the ID unit. But plz do call a professional.

    Common sense isn't very common anymore.

    I'm not a DIY, I just finished going to HVAC school at the community college and was asking a question on something that i had confused in my head. The relay question was posted because my other post has gotten no responses and so I thought i would ask about the relay.
