Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner
The settings are for different regions. The colder your region the sooner you want it to go into defrost. If you have it set at 30 then every 30 minutes of run time the board will want to go into defrost. However there is a sensor that is mounted to the coil that registers the temp. of the coil. If the coil is not cold enough it won't let it go into defrost and the sequence starts over. The more it runs in defrost the costlier it is to run and the more wear/strain you put on the compressor and the system in general. Start at 60 and go from there.please don't forget to rate this solution. Thanks.

Thanks for your question,
as to the first part of your question, it has some variables, first the area of the country you live in, the type of system you have, how large your home is, and up to the tech to figure out how many minutes it should run in defrost, for the area I live in Defrost timers are set from 10 to 30, normally around 15 mins, the unit will only go into defrost when the defrost sensing bulb senses ice build up and will then go into defrost mode, if you live in an area where it is almost always freezing, then running the defrost for 30 mins is not a bad idea, but if its a milder climate then turning it down to 20 or 15 mins is about right, hopefully this helps you out to better understand the defrost setting on your heatpump, please rate this so we know how we did, thanks again,
