Enthusiast 01be16a5a93688912f14755221fb15211b518d9a788cf01b455e03cc1bd585ac
If my AC stops running will I be able to still run the heat until I get the AC repaired?

When you mean "stops running" you mean doesn't blow cold. I would unplug the a/c compressor so it doesn't engage anymore. Yes you'll have heat without the a/c working.
How do I unplug the AC compressor and if I go to a shop to have it unplugged, will it cost a lot of money?
You should be able to run the heat without the AC, they are not tied together by anything, but they use the same blower.
