Why does my American Standard heat pump compressor and condenser fan run when I have the thermostat set to emergency heat?


It's possible the "brain" thinks it can still supply some heat. Other wise there is a wiring problem or thermostat switch problem. Installed recently? Never used emergency heat before? What is your emergency heat type, gas or electric? Are you sure they are working. If not the "brain" senses and uses the only source available: heat pump. Thermostat? probably Honeywell? If so call Mfg customer service. Warranty on thermostat or heat pump? If so call customer service. Call your installer.

I have a thermostat RTH9580. Why do I have emergency heat under system AND heat which sometines switch automatically to auxilliary heat?


If you have an air to air heat pump, in colder temperatures, the heat pump will not heat as well as it would in warmer outdoor temperatures making it run longer. the digital thermostats work off of a built in algorithm that kicks on the auxiliary heat when the heat pump runs to long so that it will satisfy the thermostat quicker. This can be tied to the Emergency heat @ the thermostat energizing a few heating elements, or just energizing a separate element from the emergency heat. I always recommend on an air to air heat pump to run the emergency heat when you have consistent Outdoor temperatures below 20 degrees F because you will cycle the heat less by getting hotter heat making life more comfortable, and it costs about the same as running the heat pump since @ those temperatures, it will run all the time.

How do I replace an old White Rodgers thermostat with new honeywell TH5220


The Orange wire for the reversing valve and used with a Heat Pump
If you have a heat pump, then yes. If you have a gas furnace then no. If you have a HP and the reversing valve is not connected, then you might just be using the emergency electric heat strips. :-o

My Honeywell thermostat does not heat the house to the selected temperature. It will come on but not long enough to heat the house to the temp I selected.


Verify that you have heat coming from the vents.
Also do you use a heat pump system with electric emergency heat?
It may be that if it is to cold outside that the heat pump can not handle the load due to the cold outside and you will need to turn on the emergency heat.
Keep me posted.
