Edgestar Portable AC/Heater

We misplaced our owners manual to this thing for the heat part of it. We have it running and there is cold air running out the back of it. Do we need to have the hose runningoutside hooked up in the winter? I know in the summer it has to vent out for ac. Any suggestions?

Yes, you need it to be hooked up in the winter also. If you don't have it hooked up then you are heating , and cooling the room at the same time.

Do I need to keep the hose connected to the window in winter time while I use the heater.

The hose is only needed to pump out hot air while using the AC features and not needed at all for heater functions.

How far from floor should exhaust hose hole be made edgestar 12000

makes no difference, as long as the ducting is not kinked.
keep in mind heat rises
so obviously if you could dump the heat elsewhere, away from the area you are cooling, then it would not creep back up through the floor. If your flooring is well insulated it will not matter.

Edgestar 12,000 portale air conditioner and heater

There are 3 possibilities beginning with the most likely problem

1) If your heater heats up for a few minutes and then quits, chances are there is a blockage in the air flow, check for dust and grime blocking the air intake coarse filter , airgun blow to clear accumulated dust and otherwise clean the coarse filter .
2) If the heater fan blows but there is no warm air, the heating element needs renewal ( this happens very rarely)
3)If the fan stalls and the heater heats up and the thermostat kicks in, then this will be not be a DIY job. This is least likely as you said the air cooler works.

Edgestar AP550Z won't heat, goes into some sort of alert mode
This could apply to at least one of your units. Apparently these models have had some trouble with the compressor capacitor wires coming loose. If they're barely touching they could cause the compressor to run intermittently and possibly overheat. The compressor runs in heating and cooling mode.
