Weather King Heat Pump

I posted a question about the unit having heating problems unless the temp outside was in the 50-60's. If the temp is lower the unit constantly runs and never gets to desired temp thermostat is set at. Upstairs (I have a 2 story) the heat comes out hot and has no problem reaching desired temp. We have other issues but this is a start! Please advise..

Hey kellyrepp -- Three things to check quickly, so many things can be wrong, but i will try to help with the info you gave me.

The first sounds like your electric aux heat is not wired in or not working correctly , this should kick in when the heat pump cannot keep up with desired set temperature. For sure thats a problem

The second thing i would check is that the compressor for that unit is running. It should sound exactly like the one for the upstairs, the fan noise should be like a whrrrr , and the compressor should be a semi loud hummm.

Third feel the pipes on the outside unit that are on the outside of the unit (the unit for the second floor) Let the unit run for 5 minuites. Now check that the first floor unit pipes are the same tempereture. They are about 110 degrees or so, depending on the outside temperatur , be carefull not to burn yourself. If the lower unit is colder , the two most prominent problems would be #1 the compressor is not running #2 Low on freon.

Hope that helps

What does it mean when the aux is flashing on my thermostat?


I assume that you have a heat pump system. If this is the case, the outside temperature is probably lower than the heat pump is sized for and it is using the auxiliary heating system to keep up. The auxiliary heating system usually is an electric coil in the heat pump unit which supplements the heat being produced by the heat pump. This is normal operations and does not indicate a problem with the heat pump, it is just really cold outside. If it is not colder than usual outside, there may be a problem with the heat pump and you should call a heating contractor to check it out.

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.

No heat when outside temp low When outside temp is 38 or above get heat. Is there a heater in the compressor that can fail?


I would start with your outdoor thermostat located in
the unit outside. I`m assuming this is a heat pump.
When the outdoor temthermostat is set to say 40F
anything lower than that and you are not using the
compressor, you are using electric heat thats located
in the air handler unit in the house.

I`m also assuming this is a split system and not a
packaged unit. If you are mechanically inclined and
you can locate the outdoor thermostat lower it below
the outdoor air temp and see if the unit comes on.

Sounds like you might have a problem with your electric heat or emergency heat

Heat pump stops working in cold weather


Sounds like there is a problem with your unit. The cooling tower doesn't have anything to do with the compressor other that the delivery of water to your heat pump. The compressor is probably shutting off on a low pressure because the water is cooler than in summer. I think the heat pump you have is low on charge or has a defunct TXV.

UNIT NOT BLOWING WARM AIR-OR REACHING DESIRED TEMP


I assume this is a heat pump. The outside unit may be icing up. It should have a defrost cycle with electronic control that sometimes fails or sensor associated with the electronic determination of when to defrost may have failed or may not be sensing because its out of position. You can check for a defrost problem. If frost is blocking the outside unit air will not pass through it after the frost builds up and you may be able to see the white frost as well. If all this is true you need to get a service manual and use its procedures to find out why the unit is not defrosting.

I'm trying to figure out if our Weather King system has a heat pump... how do I tell?


Your indoor furnace is weather king? If you have a a/c unit outside, it could be a heat pump, but you have to provide the model number on it.. If you do have a unit outside, when you call for heat does the outdoor unit kick on?

Heat Pump Stops Working only in the Early Morning


When the unit does what you say does the fan motor outside stop also , if it does that means it is in defrost mode and should kick back over to normal after the system heats up the coil enough
