Question about Ruud Heating & Cooling
I have a Ruud, 10 seer 2 ton heat pump. I tried the heat a few days ago. The outside unit came on but the air handler did not. I checked for voltage and connection problems. Everything seemed ok. Tried heat again and the unit came on this time. So I let it run for a while. I noticed the outside unit was cutting in and out. So I turned it off and have been using emergency heat. I cut it off during the day while I am work. When I get home and cut the emergency heat on sometimes the air handler agin will not come on. Once it does, it seems to be fine. I have not tried the system in regular heat mode again. Do I have two seperate problems? Or are the two possibly being caused by the same thing? Thanks
Does the air handler take a minute or two to start, this would be normal so that it doesn't blow cool air into the house before the unit is warmed up. If not could be the fan relay is weak and needs replacing. As far as the outside unit it sounds like you need to check the refrigerant. In cooling they are 70/150 psi. This should be checked in cooling mode, once you turn it to heating mode the pressures switch bring heat inside the house instead of out. I hope this helps.
