Question about Heating & Cooling
In cold mode, it operate ok but in heat mode no good. The temp outside is not to low, 28-30F
You have a heat pump.
Once the outdoor temperature falls below 36 degrees, heat pumps will sharply lose their ability to heat.
If you are getting a 72 degree indoor temperature when the outdoor temperature is 28-30 degrees, the heat pump is performing up to spec.
On heat pumps, the air coming out of the nearest air vent to the unit should be heated approximately 40 degrees warmer than the air entering the unit.
If you have a 70 degree indoor air temperature, the heat pump should be supplying 110 degree air at the closest air vent to the indoor unit.
Gas heat is a much better heating source where outside temperatures are commonly below 36 degrees.
Even electric furnaces perform better than heat pumps under these conditions.

check to see if your intake pipe or vent is clear this could cause a flame jump and make it look like a bad flame sensor let me know if this helps

you have a heat pump which removes heat from outside air when it is too cold out below 30* the unit can no longer produce heat and electric strip heaters kick in
