Need to make sure your wire size to the inside unit is large enough to handle the amperage, that you have a two stage heat thermostat.

The heat strips are what is called Auxilary or supplemental heat. If your t-stat is set 2 degrees or more then what the actual temp. in the house is or if the system runs 10 min. or more nonstop they turn on to help the Heat pump catch up.Then shut off within 1-2 degrees of set temp. Heat pumps have a balance point of about 30 degrees outside air temp. If it is colder then that it will run almost nonstop and the colder it gets the lower the air temp. it puts out. If you are below say 15-20 degrees outside it would be better to switch your t-stat to emergency heat. That shuts of the outdoor unit and runs only the heat strips. It's more expensive to run it that way but you will be warmer. I hope that works for you. Let me know.

If you are calling for heat and the thermostat is set for 2 degrees higher than room temp, the heat pump and strips come on.
When the room temp and stat temp are less than 2 degrees the strips turn off.
That is, unless the installer wired the t-stat for the strips to stay on.
If they are coming on in the air/cool mode then you have a bad heat relay or a t-stat wire shorted.

it depends on the distance from main power source # 8 if more than 40 feet look at starting amps then google a wire sizing voltage droop chart
