Did you keep notes or remember all the stat wires and terminals? 20kw should heat your home very well. Has the unit heated the house good after you changed the thermostat?

Heater not heating enough


Electric furnaces have strip heat inside of them. Depending on the model, size, etc, is how much heat the system can provide. Many times, if the system has worked in the past and started to have problems later, it's because you have lost half or more of your heat strips. They come in different sizes, 10kw, 15kw, 20kw, but ran on different contactors. So if you have a tripped breaker, faulty heat sequencer, etc, you can still have heat, but not the full amount. I strongly suggest any electrical related problems be look at by a qualified technician when dealing with air handlers. Hope this helps!

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!!!

Will conditioner run same amps cold weather


Usually connected to a 30 amp & 40 amp double breaker, if it is a heat pump. 30 for cool, 40 for heat, to turn on 1 or 2 heat strips. heat strips are rated 2 5kw each.

MY HEAT PUMP SYSTEM WILL NOT WORK IN EMERGENCY MODE


the thermostat sub base has a place to connect a wire usually white to energize the heat strips when you push the stat way hotter than the house temp. that is why the strips come on in normal heat. it also has a terminal that is only energized in emergency heat and it also should have a wire connected to it so that terminal can supply power to the strips when the stat is switched into emerg heat . you can identify the terminal from the wiring diagram and if need be jumper w2 wire over to the aux terminal and it will work. they both go back into the airhandler and power the same strips. w2..................................................................................................w2 in airhandler to strips or w2...jumper to aux......................................................................................................................w2 in airhandler to strips.

Powermate 5000


20kw means 20 KILOwatts (kilo=1000), so 20kw=20,000 watts
So the Powermate 5000 refers to wattage. 5000=5kw
