YOU HAVE ONE OF SEVERAL PROBLEMS , FIRST AND EASIEST TO REPAIR KEEP FILTERS CLEAN REPLACE EVERY 30 DAYS , #2 LOW CHARGE WILL CAUSE ICE ,# 3 A FAULTY INTERMITTENT FAN CONTROL SWITCH ,THIS WOULD BE MY # 1 GUESS SINCE I HAVE SEEN IT MANY TIME OVER THE YEARS , #3 WOULD BE A FAULTY DEFROST CONTROL BOARD OR SENSOR , THE REASON I LEAN TOWARD THE FAN CONTROL IS YOU SAY THE ICE IS ALSO IN THE INSIDE UNIT AND THIS IS MOST COMMON WITH RESTRICTED AIR FLOW OVER COILS AND SOME TIMES THE FAN SWITCH WILL CAUSE THIS PROBLEM THE DISCHARGE TEMPERATURE IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE TYPE OF UNIT ,TYPE OF REFRIGERANT IN SYSTEM AIR BALANCE CFM OF FLOW MANY VARIABLES IN THIS EQUATION,CANT SAY

Icing up on the outside unit of a heatpump is normal in cold weather. your heatpump should go into a defrost cycle on a regular basis when its that cold.
as far as not good heat goes, when it gets colder outside there is less heat in the air for the heatpump to pickup and put off inside your house. on a 40 degree day the air temp will probably be only around 100 dgrees coming out of a vent. compared to a gas or oil furnace that puts out about 130-150 degree air it feels very cool.
hope that helps..
