I would say this is around 75 amps of draw at max for both the compressor and heat units. . Therefore--at least 90 amp breaker, and probably 100 amps for good measure, and at least #4 or #2 wire to the unit.

Heater not heating enough


Electric furnaces have strip heat inside of them. Depending on the model, size, etc, is how much heat the system can provide. Many times, if the system has worked in the past and started to have problems later, it's because you have lost half or more of your heat strips. They come in different sizes, 10kw, 15kw, 20kw, but ran on different contactors. So if you have a tripped breaker, faulty heat sequencer, etc, you can still have heat, but not the full amount. I strongly suggest any electrical related problems be look at by a qualified technician when dealing with air handlers. Hope this helps!

Check temp setting must be +5 degree than room temp and also in heat "mode".
Check heating sensor placed perfectly. If not fix it in it's place. As it's running for 3 degree, your wiring no fault will be there.

Heater on my fairly new air conditioner


SINCE YOU SAID AC I ASSUME YOU HAVE ELECTRIC HEAT. IF BLOWER IS ON BUT NO HEAT THEN YOUR HEAT STRIPS ARE PROBABNLY NOT BEING TOLD TO COME ON OR THE BREAKER TO THEM IS OFF. SOME TIMES THE BLOWER IS ON A BREAKER AND THE STRIPS ARE ON A SEPERATE. CHECK ALL BREAKERS. THEN IF STILL NO HEAT YOULL HAVE TO CHECK THE POWER TO THE HEAT STRIP RELAYS . SEE IF THEY ARE BEING SENT A 24 VOLT SIGNAL TO RUN AND THEN CHECK TO SEE IF THEY HAVE POWER INTO AND OUT OF THE RELAYS. IF YOU DO THEN AN OVERLOAD OR A FUSEABLE LINK OR THE STRIPS THEMSELVES ARE BAD. EACH 5 KW OF HEAT SHOULD PULL 20 AMPS . IE 15 KW PULLS 60 AMPS 10KW PULLS 40 AMPS ETC.

Heat pump trips circuit breaker


I seem to have the same problem. But when I reset the breakers, they won't stay in the on position. They go back to the off position. What gives? It is 95F inside the house.
