Question about Heating & Cooling

Home heating problem

Our home is total electric and we don't understand why the center of the house stays warm and each end of the house stays cold. The warm air comes out in the middle of the house but cold air comes out on each end of the house.

You need to have your ducts balanced. It takes special equipment and expertise. They block some and open some ducts so the air flow is even throughout! You could just partially block or close the vents in the center and you might get more heat in the end of the runs. Also if the ducts are running in unconditioned air, like under the house or in the attic. You could be losing heat by not having insulation on the ducts. Try wrapping them.
Hope that helps.

Carrier model fa4anf036 blows cold air periodically and doesn't keep the house warm. Eventually starts blowing warm air then cold again


this model number you gave is for an electric furnace , most often its found in mobile homes , if its undersized for the load of the home a larger unit is needed , if I look at this one right here , it says this one will provide 3.6 tons of heat this size will only heat a small area (about 15x25x7 feet ) and wall insulation will help increase this too , also the wall thermostat will " cycle" the heater on an off due to demand , if its placed in a drafty spot then that will affect proformance as well

Electric Furnace heating coil stays on constantly


There are devices called heat sequencers that activate the heat strips and when get old they pop apart inside and don't keep the contacts open. You need a new triple heat sequencer, might get one from a mobile home supply house or call an HVAC co.

How do i get even heat thru out the house with a daka wood stove


http://www.hearth.com/talk/categories/main-hearth-forums.4/
You burn wood, and smoke goes up flueway.
You're not running chimney smoke through ductwork so you have a heat exchanger.
What kind of heat exchanger?
probably air since you're running through ductwork?
How much hot air or hot water is coming off heat exchanger?
How big of a space can be heated with that amount of heat?
Is the exchanger located in optimal location?

Considerations.
One room log cabin with fireplace will not stay very warm.
One room house with big wood burning stove in center, with hot flue pipe running across the room and exiting on far wall, will get warm-hot, but will cool off fast.
Why?
Because the BTU output of firewood is much less than electric, coal, oil, or gas.
Otherwise they would have made wood-burning steam locomotives. But the locomotive boiler cannot get hot enough with wood ... the boiler needs coal to produce enough BTUs to boil water fast enough to rotate the turbine and turn the wheels.

Maybe your wood stove output should be measured.
Don't forget a huge percentage of fire heat goes straight up flueway.

I puchased 5 year old home back in July and up until the last few months my electric bill has been any where from 800kwh to 1500kwh. It jumped in December to 3880 and 4500 in January. My home is 2400sq,...


You will need to have a HVAC tech to check your Heat Pump..... It is not working or not heating properly....And you are heating the house with the electric heat strips which will make your electric bill double The electric heat strips are there as back up if the heat pump is not working or keeping up with the heating demand.

Wont heat a 1,500 sqft one story home..air is cold by time gets to far end of home..gas pack 3 years old


One thing you can do is slow the blower down, this
will give you greater temperature rise and heat evenly.
The length of the home is what is needed.

Its possible that you need to have dampers installed in your ductwork or you need a booster fan installed
on the ductwork that feeds that side of the house.

My guess is that you need 80,000 btu heat output
to come close to heat the house. Since ductwork is
sized for cooling you would need 36,000 Btu Cooling
output. More information is needed

My heat pump blows cold air for the first 10 minutes or so


Don't know how long you have had a heat pump but thats the nature of them in colder weather. Some people prefer to switch to "emergency heat" on the t-stat when temps fall below 20 or 25 degrees. This bypasses the heat pump and allows your back-up heat to heat the house. If your house is total electric your emergency heat is an electric furnace and it should handle the load if it was sized properly. Don't leave it on emergency when it warms up because your heat pump is much cheaper to operate than the furnace. As always, check your air filter since it can restrict the amount of air that moves thru the furnace, which is critical. Hope this helps
