Home pre-sale inspections cannot be run for the A/C side if the outside air
temp is below 60F.

New to me and I'm curious why this might be so?

TIA

I suppose it would depend on the minimum temperature the thermostat could be set to? Many companies may think 60 to be cool enough minimum for the market.

So if outside air is at or lower than 60 the system will not be switched on to cool. But if it is a dual purpose cooler and heater pump the heater function should be able to be tested.

Might be able to carefully direct a hair dryer at the thermostat, at some distance, just to raise its temp above 60, but then if there is appreciable moisture in the air there would be the chance of the cooling coils icing up.
