How cold is it outside? Aircons are only efficient at heating (assuming they have a proper heat pump design) down to around 0-5 degrees C. below -10 degrees C you might not achieve any heating at all.
If there is a preheat cycle or defrost ensure you allow this to complete before expecting heat from it.
Remember heating is the reverse cycle of cooling so if your system has a gas leak it might not work anyway.

What would cause the fan not to come on in heat mode


Does the fan come on in cooling? If yes your heating and cooling use different speeds. It could be the low speed on your motor is out which means you need to replace it. Or it could be a problem with the control board. If the fan doesnt come on in neither heating or cooling it could be the capacitor or your motor.

LG air conditioner the fan comes on when in heat mode but when switched to cool the fan stops


They run on different speeds for heat and cool you either lost a speed for cool or the relay for the cool mode is not closing, Does the compressor come on in cool mode?

How do i adjust AC temperature variance on a Honeywell TH5220D1003 thermostat


If you are talking about the difference between heating mode and cooling mode and the room setpoint, you can not change it. It comes from the factory with a 3 degree difference. In other words if you raise the heat setpoint until it is within 3 degrees of the cooling setpoint, for every degree you raise the heat setpoint the cooling will raise a degree.
About all you can do is increase the distance between the heat and cooling setpoint. To do this either lower the cooling setpoint to 3 degrees higher than the heat setpoint you want and then increase the cooling setpoint the desired setting. For example heat and cool setpoints are 67 and 70 respectively, and you want 65 and 73. Lower the cooling setpoint to 68 and then raise the cooling setpoint to 73. Now your heating will come on 3 degress lower than 68, the 65 you wanted and cooling will come on at 73. Remember, the thermostat new setpoints will turn on the cooling at 75 and turn back off at 73 and heat will turn on at 63 and turn off at 65.
You can perform the same using the heating setpoint, just have to look at it backwards. If you need to lower the difference I recommend a 8000 series thermostat. They are the most functional thermostat that Honeywell makes, be in mind they are about 3 times more expensive and many of the setting require a well trained tech to interpret and set properly.
Hope this helps.

Furnace switches to auxiliary heat while in cool


It's likely a bad tstat. Turn the power off to your air handler. Remove red , green, yellow and orange wires inside the tstat and wire nut them together. Not sure if your reversing valve energizes in heating or cooling but, turn the power back on. If the unit is heating turn the power off and remove just the orange wire and turn power back on. Let this run and see if it you are ONLY getting cool air ALL the time. If so you have a bad stat. If still getting heat possibly you have a bad control board in the air handler. Good Luck!!

My LS-H186 VML 1Metal Art Cool 12000 BTU Air Con does not heat up


You should also check the outside unit to make sure the coil is not clogged with dirt or grass clippings and the fan is working. The reversing valve that switches it from cool to heat could also be a problem. If it isn't shifting it will not switch between heat and cool.
