when compressor power goes off, must we wait before using AC???
I seem to recall reading that AC compressors have a heater unit to reduce the viscosity of the oil, which is constantly on. Thus, when the power is cut, you supposedly must wait 5 h for the heater to reheat up the oil or risk damage if running the AC too soon.
Can anyone comment if there is anything to this? Since when our compressor went off a month ago, the technician noticed the breaker had popped, turned it back on and immediately ran the AC. Seemed to all work fine.
