Question about Air Conditioners
When my electric furnace first kicks on it blows cold air for the first 10-15 minutes. Eventually the air gets warm and heats the house. Then when the temp gets to the desired level the furnace goes back to blowing cold air again for another 10-15 minutes before shutting off.
I have a Lennox electric furnace that was installed new in May 1994. The attached heat pump is currently shut off at the breaker for various other issues - it needs replaced. The stat is an after-market digital stat that is only 4-6 months old.
Is this normal? Should I take off the heat pump wire inside the stat since I have the heat pump shut off?

It is normal. Your house has to go down a couple more degrees because the heat pump is not working. You can solve this by rewirng you thermostat. Take off the wire that goes to Y and tape off. Then take the wires that are marked w and e or w1 and put the wires to yellow. Do not run ac with it wired like this. If you need more information please post me back
