How Do I Know If My AC Has a Heater

How Do I Know If My AC Has a Heater?

In the winter months, it can be difficult to know whether your air conditioning unit also has a heating function.

This can be especially confusing if you have recently moved into a new home or are uncertain about the age or history of your current AC unit. 

How do I know if my AC has a heater?

If you are wondering whether your AC unit has a heater, there are a few things to look for.

1. Thermostat

The easiest way to determine if your AC has a heater is to check the thermostat.

 Many thermostats that control units with both heating and cooling functions will have a switch or button that allows you to change between the two settings.

If you do not see this switch or button, your AC unit may not have a heater. 

2. Look it over

Another way to check is by looking at the unit itself, if it is a package unit which is a single unit that contains both heating and cooling components, it has a heating function.

In summary, 

How do I know if my AC has a heater? 
 To know if your AC has a heater, you can check the thermostat or the unit itself.
If you don’t find any switch or button on the thermostat or if it is not a package unit then it probably doesn’t have a heating function.
