What you are talking about I think are the strip heaters in the Air Handler this must be a Heat Pump system right??? If so please check your thermostat and make sure it is not in EMRGY HEAT mode.. One other note there is a 2 stage bulb system inside the stat if it is too cold outside and the heatpump on its own cant keep up with the call for heat the 2nd bulb closes and turns on the heater as a supplumnetal heat also these will come on or should come on when the unit goes into defrost.. plz let me know what it is you are trying to test and i can walk you thru it.. Also need a model # off the A/H to get a Wiring diagram

I puchased 5 year old home back in July and up until the last few months my electric bill has been any where from 800kwh to 1500kwh. It jumped in December to 3880 and 4500 in January. My home is 2400sq,...


You will need to have a HVAC tech to check your Heat Pump..... It is not working or not heating properly....And you are heating the house with the electric heat strips which will make your electric bill double The electric heat strips are there as back up if the heat pump is not working or keeping up with the heating demand.

Heat strips do not energize during defrost cycles air below 50 degrees up to 14 minutes


if your heat strips are not coming on, then there are a few things to check.

The first one would be that the heat strips are actually working. The easiest way to complete this task is to turn the system on into emergency heat and turn the thermostat up. If you get heat accompanied by the traditional strip heat burnt smell, then you know the electric heat strips are working.

The second thing would be that the air handler is receiving a command for heat during defrost cycle. If the command is present with no heat, then you most likely have either a wiring issue or a failed electrical relay or contactor.

The third thing would be the defrost board itself, for it is the component that calls for electric heat strips to come on during a defrost cycle. You may or may not be able to force the defrost board into a defrost cycle and then check that the heat strips are on or not.



It sounds as though your defrost board is bad with the symptoms you are describing.

Good luck.

sounds like you either have a severe wiring issue or if it is a heat pump there may be a problem involving the reversing valve. I recemmond you have your hvac man look at it.

MY HEAT PUMP SYSTEM WILL NOT WORK IN EMERGENCY MODE


the thermostat sub base has a place to connect a wire usually white to energize the heat strips when you push the stat way hotter than the house temp. that is why the strips come on in normal heat. it also has a terminal that is only energized in emergency heat and it also should have a wire connected to it so that terminal can supply power to the strips when the stat is switched into emerg heat . you can identify the terminal from the wiring diagram and if need be jumper w2 wire over to the aux terminal and it will work. they both go back into the airhandler and power the same strips. w2..................................................................................................w2 in airhandler to strips or w2...jumper to aux......................................................................................................................w2 in airhandler to strips.

Ruud heat pump


Did you just install this heat pump? If so it sounds like you replace a regular a/c with a heat pump, which will require more wires for the reversing valve. First check to make sure you have 24v going to the condenser. Make sure you have a heat pump t-stat. You should have a orange t-stat wire for your reversing valve. At the t-stat you will have terminals R, Y, G, O, X or C or B, W1, and W2. R is half of your 24v circuit and is a red wire, Y is for cooling mode, G is the Fan green wire, O is for the reversing valve, orange wire, X or C or B is the other half of control circuit blue wire, W1 and W2 is the heat strips in the furnace tan and black wires. These are standard color code but remember electricity does not know colors and an installer may have used different colors. If all of this is correct possibly bad contactor.

Wiring Diagram for Ruud Heat Pump


Unfortunately, the wiring diagrams for heat pumps are not so easy to come up with. The outdoor unit will have its own diagram, but may not include the indoor air handler and will probably not include the thermostat. That said, the orange wire is commonly run from the thermostat to the reversing valve in the outdoor unit. This wire is usually not connected to the indoor airhandler. The orange wire is usually used in a unit that has the reversing valve energized in cool. Ruud, however has its reversing valve energized in heat. Probably not useful but maybe helpful

Electric heat strip installation and wiring


Need to make sure your wire size to the inside unit is large enough to handle the amperage, that you have a two stage heat thermostat.
