Question about Heating & Cooling
What type of furnace? strip heat....gas... I would check the reversing valve.Run the unit in cooling have someone switch the stat to call for heat....."Whooosh!!!" the reversing valve will switch over.Other methods of switching the valve , remove one wire, remove the nut and slide the solenoid off the valve will reverse. The switching solenoid can be checked magnetically by using a small screwdriver. Switch from cool to heat or heat to cool this way you can check if the valve is getting a signal .
Heat pumps are a fairly complicated simple device..... sometimes just switching the valve back and forth a couple times gets it unstuck. Remember air coming from the duct will feel cooler than air from a gas furnace .
Most customers don't think they are working when they really are. 100 degree heat is not that hot to 98.6 degree person who is used to 120 degree gas heat!
