Depending on the type of AC you have, it may already do that. If it is, say,
a one piece roof mounted unit, with intake/oulet ducts attached to the
building, then just leave the fan on all the time and it will do what you

If it's a split unit, with copper tubeing bringing the freon from an outside
to inside unit, then this doesn't work.
