This also happens when using the heater, however the heat ducts are in the floor and the A/C ducts are in the ceiling so when using the heater i have cold air comming out of the ceiling vents and warm air comming out of the floor vents. Any ideas?
Your confussed, I'm confussed.
Are you talking about an A/C with a heat strip? If you have a heat strip in your A/C then the heat will dump from the ceiling vents when in heat mode.
The A/C cools and circulates the air, so the compressor kicks on and of as required. The fan keeps running until you shut in down.
Check to see if you indeed have a heat strip in the A/C, if you do check for power to it and continuity through it. You may have a burnt out heat strip or lack power to the strip.
