Check your filters, make sure they are not dirty. Make sure your outdoor sensor is working properly. If it is then check the setting on the defrost timer. If you don't know how, you'll have to call an expert to come fix it. Diagnostic fees generally are around 65 to 125 depending on time and contractor.

How do I maximize heat from the 14k ac/heat pump?

Heat pumps are designed to operate only with the heat strip if the outdoor temp drops below 50 to 53 degrees F. Heat pumps use the heat from the outside and transfer it to the inside, but if the temps outdoors do not hold enough heat, it ceases to function efficiently. Make sure the unit is always clean on the inside and on the outside coiling to make it as efficient as possible. I've been in the business for 17 years and around it my whole life and I've never recommended a heat pump for this very reason. They are only efficient in areas where the winter temps are more mild.

Heater will not activate until outside temp. is above 40 degrees

If you have a heat pump the compressor is locked out below that temp. If you have a dual fuel - hp/gas, the gas burners should come on as would the electric heaters if you have electric heat as backup.

Goodman furnace fan cylcing

The fan switch is set to turn on at approximately 125 degrees and run until the heat exchanger temp drops to around 105 degrees. With age the sensitivity of this switch varies and summer heat can cause the switch to turn on if the outside temp is over 100 degrees. Only the fan is running, not the burner but you can shut off the power to the unit if this is an issue.

I have a Lennex heat pump unit which was installed in 2008. Our area (Savannah, GA) has experienced some abnormal cold temps lately. Yesterday, I noticed the outside of the unit had frost on the unit. ...

Heat pumps are the same as an A/C unit only it works in reverse. Instead of blowing cold air inside and hot air outside it blows hot air inside and cold air outside. The heat being blown inside is extracted form the cold air outside. Its called Latent heat Latin for hidden. Believe it or not even though its 20 degrees outside there is still heat in the air. Example if you want to drop the temperature of a freezer from 20 to 10 degrees you have to remove heat .I know your getting unusal weather and that is the problem. Heat pumps can only work no lower then around 20 degrees outside.Heat pumps are never used above the freeze line. With your unusal temperatures thats basically where you are now. Ride it out. When your temps rise a little your be fine. Im in Chicago.

My 1992 accord does not blow.heat when outside temp drops below 40 degree.

If you have heat when its above 40 degrees most likely your problem is a bad thermostat, when it gets VERY cold out the engine cannot reach proper operating temperature to maintain heat quality because the thermostat is more then likely stuck in the open or partially **** in the open position....

I have a new bryant 2.5 ton 410 puron heat pump and it shut off when the temp get cooler. The temp right now is around 36. Is there anyway to get it to shutoff at a lower temp. so the aux heat won't kick...

Heat pumps only work down to a certain temperature, 35-40 degrees outside temp. Once it gets that cold the system cant pull any heat from the outside air and the aux heat kicks in to make up the differance.
