It's a measure of a/c efficiency. The higher the number the better it cools and the less electricity you use. Window units are luck to get past 10. The government gives tax incentives for 13.5 & higher and the highest comes from mini split models(like Mitubichi) somewhere around 22-24.

Where is the reset button on an Amana ASZ14 unit?


I don't think the Amana ASZ14 Heat Pump has a reset switch, but you can still reset it by resetting the power (when it's not running... turn your thermostat OFF first).

To reset the power, locate your circuit breaker box. There should be a double-breaker for the Heat Pump and another double-breaker for the Air Handler. Turn them both off for at least 2-3 minutes. Then flip them back on and turn your thermostat back ON.

You're thermostat may also have a RESET button that you can push. I have to reset mine every time I change the batteries in it.

Have tempstar model NFCX3600CZ Ser# L0239 58594 and unit will not switch from head mode to cool mode. Contractor says it's a bad reversing valve. cost will be $525 to fix. Question estimate.


I am a Technician myself and work for myself. Their price is fine if they don't try to add as they go. Reversing valves are delicate to install and you have the issue of recovery and disposal of the freon that was inside your unit. I am not siding with the Technicians either there are good ones and bad ones. Did this technician come out and test the unit or was this a quote on the phone? Depending on the age of your heat pump I would consider other factors. We also are nearing the end of the R-22 age and moving to better more efficient units that conserve energy. SEER rating means a lot if you add the cost of energy. The newer styles of heat pumps work under extreme pressure. The higher the seer number the lower the cost for energy. Your model may be a 10 seer I will look after I finish this post. Let me know the age of your heat pump. Remember a heat pump works all year round and not just summer months so life span is reduced.

1997 Amana 2 or 2.5 ton heat pump, 13 seer - air handler only blows 4-5 min


do you have a totaline t-stat. they and some other brands have a fan recirculation setting in the installers menu.

this is assuming that this happens in addition to the heating or cooling normally
