I have a bog standard HVAC system with a Nest thermostat. When I tell the theromostat to turn the fan on for 15 minutes the A/C compressor also kicks on. Is this normal?


This is not normal. When the thermostat energizes the G terminal, only the blower fan should come on.

Check for a jumper/short between Y and G either at the thermostat, or the air handler.
