Question about Goodman PHKJ048-1 Air Conditioner
I've seen you answer many questions on the FixYa board concerning Heat Pumps and AC. We recently bought a house that has a Goodman PHJK048 Heat Pump package. It cools wonderfully and heats perfect. My question is, I've never owned a heat pump before. I'm in alabma and recently we've been having low overnight temps, around 32. I set the thermostat at bedtime to 68. The unit seems to run alot at night, and when I feel the air thru thet vent, it seems like about 68, and it seems to get noiser at night as it gets colder outside. I can bump up the thermostat and the AUX comes on and I get instant heat. Just wondering if a heat pump actually heats or cools the air at the same temp as the thermostat setting. Also, I've heard it make a loud noise as " I think" it is defrosting the coils late at night or early cold mornings. My main concern is it seems to run quite a bit when it's on heat with the temp set to 68 and when it's real cold the compressor seems to make more noise than usual. Thanks for any info you can profide.
Ok...where to start.lol ....the thermostat is just a switch.It will tell the unit to run or not run.if you measure the temp with the heatpump running,the air is warmer than 68 but it feels cool to you because your body is 98.6.The unit will run more often and for longer periods when the temperature drops outside for a few reasons.First,your house has more of a load to heat,meaning you have more heat loss because of the difference in temperatures outside and inside.Second,your heat pump pulls heat from the outside air.The colder the air outside,the less btu's for it to pull.If you have anymore questions firstname.lastname@example.org Hope this helps,Dave
