Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Pardon my ignorance, but this is a furnace and not a heat pump, correct. Thank you. Outside is a unit, which I believe must be the A/C unit.

Thanks for the explanation, Dave. Now, what's the problem with your furnace? Will also need manufacturer and model # to help you.

How do I reset the temp my heat pump switches from electric to gas. It runs much more economically on electri than on propane. The thermostat is a Honeywell th8000. Code 350 setting I believe. Thanks


Heatpumps are more complex than an AC unit. Yes, there is a difference between a heatpump and an air conditioner. Where the real difference lies is out side in the condenser unit. There's a defrost board out in the unit, and depending on the brand and model, one of the wires will need to be changed so that the gas furnace will not come on. The problem with this, heatpumps use the heat that is available from the outdoors and transfers it to indoor. When the temps outside drop below 50 degrees, there's not enough latent heat to transfer, thus calling the propane furnace to operate. Without the addition of the furnace, you will not be able to heat the area properly. The only way to remedy this, is to remove the propane furnace and replace it with an electric airhandler with a heat strip for "emergency heat". The emergency heat term is used when the temps drop below the temps I mentioned above and calls for the heat strips to come on.

It is a two ton system. and without doing a heat load Calculation and not knowing the heat load It would not be anything but a guess. But if everything is working properly and the system is clean and with good duct work, than it should be big enough for the size of your house.

If you have gas furnace, the outside unit will not come on unless you have dual fuel/ gas and heat pump. If you can look at wires in thermostat, if you have no wires going to O or B then you don't have heat pump. Normal tstat wiring for gas furnace and air conditioner. R,W,G,Y and maybe C.

My son has a Goodman Manufacturer Corp Heat Pump/air conditioner. Forced air I believe. The air conditioner quit. A repairman indicated that in order to replace the air conditioner the furnace will have to...


I don't see any reason to change the furnace unless it's an air handler and not a furnace with a coil on top or bottom. And then, the only reason to change the inside unit when you change the outside unit is because it's a R-22 system and your going back with a 410A system. They just discontinued R-22 equipment this year and not a lot are still available. But even if that's the case, the only thing they should have to replace is the coil and maybe the copper line set. That's all I can think of. Hope this helps!

Till what outside temp is the 8Kw heating output


Are you referring a to an electric furnace providing the heat, the heat pump providing the heat, a heat pump providing heat usually with an auxillary/emergency electric heating unit, or an air conditioner with an electric furnace attached? If your system normally uses a heat pump for the heat normally, there is an eletric auxilliary heater. You'll probably need to turn it on at the thermostat manually when the outside temp gets below 40 degrees. If you have it nice system, it might do it automatically. If you're referring to the electric heater being rated 8 kw, it'll run using 8kw when you turn it on. It doesn't have the ability to change what heat rating it is. If you're refurring to the heat pump system being rated 8kw, you're probably mistaken. A heat pump might possibly consume 8kw to run the system but that can't be a measure of the system's capacity. Heat pump measurement units are rated in tons, but the system will always run at the same ton capacity whenever it's on, provided it doesn't need any maintenance. Some commercial air conditioning and heating systems have to ability to modify their power output based on the outside temperature, but I doubt you're dealing with that kind of thing.

Furnace runs on heat, air conditioner does not


If you have a Gas furnace in the Attic then the answer is yes. The outside condenser will not run if in fact you have a gas furnace.

I'm trying to figure out if our Weather King system has a heat pump... how do I tell?


Your indoor furnace is weather king? If you have a a/c unit outside, it could be a heat pump, but you have to provide the model number on it.. If you do have a unit outside, when you call for heat does the outdoor unit kick on?

Heat Pump Stops Working only in the Early Morning


When the unit does what you say does the fan motor outside stop also , if it does that means it is in defrost mode and should kick back over to normal after the system heats up the coil enough

Someone did not program your thermostat to operate according to your heat and air requirements.
Have it programmed correctly.
