If it is a gas furnace or electric furnace you can expect 100-120 degree
air. A heat pump would probably put out 100 degree air or less. Sometimes lowering the fan speed can gain you almost 10 degrees

SOURCE: When the unit is switch to heat, the unit is not

Is this a "heat pump" or is this a "air conditioner with a heat strip"?

A heat strip in an air conditioner will not be noticable hot but will eventually provide some warmth for a small space.

Generally, A heat pump is much better at providing heat than a 'heat strip' BUT is not as quick as OIL or GAS or ELECTRIC heat source (furnace).

What ever kind of device you have, turning up the temp will NOT make it work faster! Generally speaking, When you are calling for heat, the heat device turns on FULL, and stays on at that rate until the heat (or cool if you are cooling) requirement has been met. In other words, it is either ON or OFF. Increasing the demand will not make it work faster, contrary to common belief.

Is the heat pump cooling itself down? It is a combination heat pump/air conditioner wall unit.


If a unit is in heating mode the outdoor unit is in cooling mode (outside always does opposite of indoor) after a while if there is a build up of ice on outdoor coil unit stops and puts hot gas through outdoor coil to clear it. The indoor fan stops to avoid and heat loss in area served buy unit once this has been done and indoor unit coil is hot again fan will start. This is the correct operation of the unit to save against bust could and reduced efficiency

air conditioners are in effect heat pumps
that is they pump the hot air in the room via a gas to the outside area
when that outside are is still inside the room then that hot air is just recirculated
so if you want to heat your room the system is reversed so that you need the hot air outside pumped back into the room
the hot air is provided by the condenser which is now the evaporator in the room as the roles have been reversed so you will have to put the unit in a door way or use the ducting hoses to go out a window

I have a Rheem Heat and air unit. Model # RGAC-080AW Serial # CM3D104 F4782 4794 and need to find out where the filter for the unit is located.


What filter are you talking about?
Air filter: Usually with a heat and air unit, the air filter is located behind the return air grill.
Return air grill looks similar to ordinary ceiling or floor grill where the hot or cold air blows into each room. Except the return air grill is larger and is usually put close to the heat-air unit.
Remove the grill and replace filter every 3-6 months.
If no filter is present, then dust and hair get stuck on the coils and unit will not meet temperature setting.
See image of typical air filter:

We have an air make up unit on our community hall with no heat


Depending on the outdoor temps, 10 kw won't heat much. If you have a multi-meter you can check the amp draw as well. You should get 20 amps for each heat strip. Each heat strip is 5kw.

How long will my AC work for, if placed inside the room


I assume that we are talking about a "window" unit. No, you cannot just place it in the room. The machine is actually two parts; one part delivers the cool air to you, the other part ejects the heat out of your house. If you just had the whole unit inside, the room wuold actually get warmer, not cooler. The reason for this is that the compressor and motor generate heat also. The "heat of compression" generated has to be ejected from the room in order for the air conditioner to work. Put it in the window.

Does not heat real hot or cool real cold . dometic duotherm penguin markings on 85 or so unit


Heat real hot? Is this a heat pump or do you have a heat strip installed. Get a regular thermometer and put it in the outgoing vents of the unit. Register the temperature there and then the outside temp. If it is cooling at 17 to 23 degrees below ambient temperature, the manufacturer says this is fine. Try cleaning the condenser out on the top of the rv. Gently hose the rear condenser out until all the dirt and grime is removed the unit. Try cooling again and see if it is better.

Uotside unit blowing cool air but hot on the inside


It sounds like you have a unit called a heat pump. When a heat pump unit is in cooling mode the outside unit blows hot air and the inside unit blows cold air. If the outside unit is blowing cold then the indoor unit is most likely blowing room temperature or warm air. It sounds like the thermostat could be controlling incorrectly or you could have a failed reversing valve which is the device that switches the unit from heating to cooling mode.
