Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner
New Goodman H. Pump 2.5 ton 13 SEER unit seems to blow a lot of cold air berore warming up. I talked to installer about putting the fan on low speed but he is reluctant to do that. Any suggestons
Heat pumps generate heat from compressing freon and take a while to generate enough heat to be useful. never expect robust heat from a pump like an oil burner or a gas furnace, but they do heat great and are cheaper to operate. do this . if you are still using an old mercury bulb stat change it to a digital one. this will hold an exact temperature and time off between cycles will be less and the indoor coil will stay warm between short cycles, with an old mercurry stat you set it at 70 and it may run up to 73 and stay off till 68. thats a long off cycle and when call resumes the coil has gotten cold and has to start all over again. also dont wait till it gets cold to run a heat pump. turning it on and off as it gets cold is not correct. you should select a temp ,usually 71 for heat and set it and leave it on to do its thing.you may want to check the charge. hot gas discharge is usually 100 degreees hotter than outdoor temps after 15 minutes run time. for example if its 40 outside the big freon line outside thats insulated should be about 140 degrees. or you can run it 15 minutes and grab it with your hand . it should be almost uncomfortable to hold any length of time. careful some get quite hot. you also have the option of hooking up the electric strip to automatically come on if you push the stat up 2 degrees hotter than the temp in the room. that way you get heat pump and strips till temp gets within 2 degrees of set point and the strips shut off and pump maintains.good luck
