    Hi, I'm having the error E5 when using the air conditioning function. It cools well and then stops staying in error mode. Then if I turn it off and back on, the cycle repeats. I welcome any ideas!

    Thanks, Kim

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


http://edgestar.com/ownersmanuals/AP550Z_wire-fix.pdf
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.

Cooling on and off


Behind the filter there should be a small metal tube that senses the temp. entering the unit sometime this is too close to the metal fins and sense the cold from the fins and not the air coming in. Make sure this is away from the fins and try a different temp. setting.And relocating the unit. These units tend to give off more heat that cooling because the hot air is returned to the inside of the room and not vented outside like window units.This is an  EdgeStar 12,000 BTU unit, correct?
