Question about Heating & Cooling
My Ruud heat pump has a electick strip heater in the duct. Everytime the heatpum comes on so does the emergency heat. The wiring diagrams that I have been able to find do not show the correct wiring for a proper thermostat hook up. Does someone know how this shold be connected??
Most heat pumps do use the heat strip when they start untill the compressor gets the heat going. This keeps the air coming out of your vents warm as the system is ramping up.

Your white wire is controlling the heat for your strips. while the blue is for the heat pump side of heat. But if you disconnect the white be sure to wrap tape around it so it doesn't contact any other wire. Would cause a short and you would loose a transformer.
