    I live in a mobile home that is 6 yrs old. The last 2 nights my heater has quit blowing warm air in the middle of the night. Nothing I did yesterday made the heater blow out warm air no matter how far down I turned the degrees. It was set on 72 & it was 62 when I woke up. After all day of not blowing yesterday it finally started blowing last evening. Thought it seemed to fix itself after being turned off completely for awhile. It was blowing warm air when I went to bed and it was set to 74. This morning it is 64 in here as it must have stopped blowing between 3am and 8am.

Make sure you are in the heat mode. Do you hear the wall thermostat click when you raise and lower the set temp. If not replace thermostst. Clean all filters to start. Does your heat source have a pilot light to start or is the unit located out side. If apilot light make sure itis lit. let's go from there

Blows only warm air, not hot


Many of these heaters have four infrared heating bulbs inside, and they do burn out over time, and it doesn't put out as much heat. If you take off the outer case (usually 4 screws hold it on) you'll see the bulbs and will be able to determine which ones are not lit up and need replacement.

I'm installing a Honeywell Thermostat RTH2410. In Step 1 you need to identify the system type. I have a Carrier Heat Pump model FA4BNF030. Is this a heat pump with or without auxiliary/backup heat?


Auxiliary heat is electric heat that is put into the air handler on the inside of the house. Its used when your heat pump doesn't provide enough heat, but heat strips are not always used. To see if you have auxiliary heat, look inside and see if you have breakers on the front panel of the air handler or anywhere close. No breakers, no electric heat. Hope this helps!

Central Heat and Air noises.


Hi, It sounds to me that this split system you have is a heat-pump and not a gas fire air handler. The noise that you are hearing must be the freon in the copper lines equalizing in the system upon shut down of the compressor. All systems must and will go through this sequence. It shouldn't be that loud though. The copper lines should have armor flex on at least the larger suction line for insulation and to keep it from condensating everywhere in the summer in the cooling mode.If you find it is bare with nothing on it, you can buy this insulated tubing at Home Depot or O.S.Hardware. Its black in color and is split down the entire 10' section with glue covered seams on it. This should cut down the noise. Depending on the unit size Tonnage wise, the suction line may be 3/4" or 5/8" in diameter.Just ask for there water line insulation and like I said it comes in 10' sections and is very cheap, 20cents a foot or so. Please keep me posted if this does not take care of the problem. It may be coming from the lines where they enter the air handler. I will wait for you're reply.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

My heil heat pump is not blowing warm or hot air


Assuming that the fan is okey, there's only one item to be checked, and that is the HEATING ELEMENT.
This answer is based from your comment that it is not blowing warm or hot air. So, I conclude that it is blowing air but neither hot or warm, only ambient air. So, unplug it, and check the heating element. It may need to be replaced to make it work. May this will
help you.

Smell of electrical burning.. no more heat in house!


First of all keep this in mind.
You will need to locate the wires that got hot. If you can't or if your not sure, I suggest that you call a service company. If they ok the unit and it catches on fire after wards, their insurances will cover you unit and or home if god forbid it burns. This is to be on the safe side.
Now, this is where I would look. Your element should be on it's on circuit. There should be a disconnect within reach of the air handler. Some are fused and some are not. The wires that got hot enough for you to smell them should show signs of being hot like the plastic will be melted around the wire. You said that the heater was running. Was this the first time you have used it this year? If so, are you sure it was not the dust burning off the elements? They will smell like something burning when you first turn them on each year. Although if your sure you smelled wires getting hot, please continue looking for just that. Keep in mind that the elements have 220 volts coming to them. It comes into the unit and go to a switch or relay. From there the power goes to the elements and then to a neutral. These are the wires you will need to pay the most attention to. Good luck.

Position of ceiling diffusers for a ducted warm air heating syste


You want the air to distribute through the room as evenly as possible. You don't want the air to blow down in one spot. In a room where a thermostat is located make sure the air doesn't blow toward the thermostat or this will make the unit turn off before the desired temp is reached.
