SOURCE: electric heat strip installation and wiring

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.

SOURCE: Goodman Air Conditioner not heating well...

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.

SOURCE: I have a 3 ton Coleman heat and air pump and when

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.

Goodman package unit heat strips will not turn on


Put meter probes at in put terminal of the element if you read 220volts that mean your relay is good. if you got it there use amp meter on one leg of that element. You should read some amp draw there but if there is no amp draw it mean the element broke.

Had 16 xi Trane heat pump installed 3 years ago. It ran well for the first couple of years. It began to stop heating and would blow cold air only. Have tried both aux heat and reg. heat to run and neither...


That's a complicated system that needs a qualified technician to service it. Lots of people can install them and they run fine, for a few years. Your indoor unit, operating on 2 heat elements, will feel like its blowing cold air even though its heating, just not so well. And not like you are accustomed to. Each element (5kw)=22.7amps, on average. So 3 elements operating should trip a breaker. Its probably been operating on 2 heat element plus the heat pump. And now you have trouble with the heat pump. If you can't TRUST the guys working on your equipment, try someone else. A second opinion. Normally a 3 or 4 ton unit will have 15kw heat installed, heatpump or not. 5 ton, 20kw. If yours is a 3-4ton, cooling, the 100amp(or normally two 60 amp) breaker should have been installed upon equipment change out. If yours is blowing cold all the time, something is wrong with your heatpump. The electric heat inside operates only when the heatpump can't keep up(real cold outside), the heatpump is in defrost(then it's actually in cooling mode), or if you have the tstat in aux/em. heat. Try a local trane dealer? Of a technician with 15-20 yrs under their belt. A trane dealer should have trane tech support also. BIG HELP!!!

What's wrong with your current AHU? Any Ruud dealer can assist you. Most 4 ton units work with r-22 or 410a. As a side note, most parts in an air handler can be replaced unless the case is rusted thru.

You can use the existing air handler for a heat pump condenser unit up to 3 tons. The line set, evap coil are fine for a heat pump.
The electric heat strip issue can be another problem, you can put several different size strips in depending on what may be needed where you live, the power requirements will differ with each heat strip, for example a 5KW (5000 watt) heat strip requires a 2 pole 30 amp circuit for heat strip and air handler combination.

Goodman unit blows 45 amp fuses only in heat mode, worked fine all summer on a/c. It works well for some time then blows them again.


Check the breakers on the unit How many KW--electric heat? Check to see if you have the right wires wired up to the correct breaker cause some units have 40---and ---60 ---amps breakers and your thickest wire could be wired to the 40-amp breakers,, (some 5 KW pullls 19-23 amps respectably some breakers have 7.5 KW heat stips and pulls more and if the wire size can,t cary the amps, then all you have to do is reduce a heat strip.
