Important Facts You Should
Know About Your Heat Pump

• During the cooling season, the heat pump operates like a conventional system.
• Do Not turn the air conditioning system off. Part-time cooling is poor economy. If
the system is left off during the morning, the home will soak up heat and be more
difficult to cool in the afternoon. You can actually save money by letting the
thermostat determine when cooling is needed.
• During the hot, dry seasons, we recommend keeping the air conditioner blower on
continuously. The air conditioning unit cools more evenly when the blower switch is
in the ON position. The blower provides refreshing air movement and even
temperatures throughout the home. The blower also circulates air through the filter,
which helps remove dust, lint and other pollutants more efficiently.
• Shades, drapes, shutters, or screens should be installed on windows that are
exposed to direct sunlight. Also, plant a tress or put up a canopy to protect your
windows from the direct sun.
• During the heating season, the heat pump will deliver warm air, but not hot air
like other systems, and will operate for long periods of time. THIS IS NORMAL.
Remember, air which is 80 degrees is warm air and will heat the house even though
it may feel cool to a hand, which is 98 degrees.
• During the cold weather, frost will accumulate on the outdoor coil. This will cause
the heat pump to go into a defrost cycle. During this cycle, the outdoor fan will stop
running and you will hear the humming of the compressor and feel cool air coming
from the registers. You may also notice steam or water runoff from the outdoor unit
and hear a “whooshing” sound. THIS IS A NORMAL FUNCTION DURING THE
DEFROST CYCLE. Do not turn off the unit, change the temperature, or adjust the
thermostat during this cycle. The defrost cycle will last from 1-10 minutes depending
on the amount of ice on the coil. Then the unit will return to the heating mode.
• Night setback during the heating season is NOT recommended. The heat pump is
not designed to raise space temperatures quickly.
• For cooling and heating . . . Leave your thermostat alone. When you have found
a temperature that you prefer, it is best to leave the thermostat at that setting.
• Clean or replace the filters frequently. Dirty filters will lower performance and
efficiency of your cooling. The filters are usually located at the return grille or at the
indoor section of your unit.

BASIC OPERATING PRINCIPLES
COOLING-SUMMER OPERATION (Air Conditioner and Heat Pump)
DEFROSTING
The cooling system operates similarly to your refrigerator. There are three
main parts: (1) the evaporator coil where cold refrigerant absorbs heat from
the air which circulates through the duct system in your home; (2) the
condenser coil, outdoors, where the heat which was absorbed indoors is
discharged from the refrigerant through the system
As the unit goes into the defrost cycle, a hissing noise will be heard from
the outside unit. The unit continues to run during defrost, except the
outdoor fan motor stops, and as the frost is melted, steam will probably
emit from the unit. Many times there is also water draining at the bottom
of the coil as well. When the coil is defrosted, again a hissing noise will
be heard and the unit will reverse back on heat cycle. There is no
definite time limit for this cycle (1-7 min.). The lower the outside
temperature and the higher the humidity, the longer the defrost cycle will
last.
An air conditioner cannot cool a house off rapidly. It pulls the temperature
down slowly. Therefore, do not turn the unit on and expect immediate action.
It may take several hours to pull down a hot, moist house when the unit is
first installed or anytime it is turned off for a long period of time.
HEAT PUMP-WINTER OPERATION
A heat pump is designed to heat and cool. The operation of your heat pump
is entirely automatic. It is controlled by a thermostat which you set at a
temperature most comfortable to you. When the inside temperature drops
below this setting, your thermostat senses this and turns on the system.
A heat pump acquires its heat from the outside air. At any time the outside
temperature approaches 40°F, the outside coil temperature will be below
32°F or below freezing. Frost or ice will begin to form on this coil from the
moisture contained in the air. After any continuous run time of 90 minutes,
the unit will automatically go into a defrost cycle. Periodically, the unit will
automatically defrost itself. When the unit goes into defrost, a “whooshing”
sound is audible if you happen to be near the unit. (This same sound can be
heard when the unit shuts off during heating operation.) The sound is normal
and should be no cause for alarm. It is also normal for steam to come off the
outdoor coil during the defrost. Defrost is completely automatic and is
controlled by sensors in the outdoor unit.
A heat pump, unlike an electric furnace, will not supply extremely hot air
from the discharge ducts. Depending on the outside temperature, the
air leaving the discharge grille will vary from as low as 75°F, to as high
as 110°F. Any air temperature below 98.6°F will feel cool to the human
body. This does not mean that your system is not working properly.
NIGHT SETBACK-HEATING CYCLE
A heat pump is not designed for a rapid change of indoor temperature,
but is designed to maintain a constant temperature 24 hours a day. If a
heat pump is turned down or off at night, it will take several hours to
reheat the house. If automatic night setback is desired, it is
recommended that an electronic heat pump thermostat with
programmed recovery be used because this thermostat will gradually
reheat the house.
HEATING-COOLING SYSTEM OPERATION
THERMOSTAT
OPERATING THE THERMOSTAT
For the most efficient operation, set the thermostat at the temperature you
prefer - and let it take over. Set the SYSTEM lever to “COOL” or “HEAT”.
Set FAN lever to “AUTO”. Everything is automatic. DON’T BE A
“THERMOSTAT JIGGLER.”
HEATING CYCLE:
Although outside temperatures may vary 20 to 30 degrees from morning to
night, inside temperatures will vary only 6 to 8 degrees during a normal 24
hour period. The operation of your air conditioning unit is automatic. It is
controlled by a thermostat which you set at a temperature most comfortable
to you (75° to 80° for cooling and 68 to 70 for heating). When the inside
temperature changes above or below these cooling or heating settings, your
thermostat senses this and turns on the system.
As you no doubt know, setting the thermostat to a position lower than you
actually want does NOT make it “cool faster,” and the same holds true for
heating.
The greater the difference between outdoor and indoor
temperatures, the greater the operating cost.
Switch the System Lever to HEAT. Then set the Temperature Selection
Lever to the desired temperature.
COOLING CYCLE:
Switch the system level to COOL. All models have a reset feature
which will allow you to reset the unit at the thermostat after some
abnormal condition has caused safety switches to turn the unit off. To
reset, merely switch the system lever to OFF and back to COOL.
FAN CONTROL
Your thermostat has a Fan Selection lever which will allow you to run
the fan continuously or cycle it automatically with the heating or cooling
system. Switch the lever to ON for continuous operation and to AUTO
for automatic cycling.
HEATING-COOLING SYSTEM OPERATION
The most serious concern of the average new owner of a heat pump is: “Why
does it run so much? Won’t it use a lot of electricity?” the answer is NO, and
here’s why:
The heat pump produces a low level of heat and uses a modest amount of
electricity in the process. It does not get as hot as a gas or oil fired furnace
and the air coming from your supply registers will not feel as warm as that
from a gas or oil fired furnace.
Once you recognize this and accept the lower discharge temperature,
you will be much more comfortable. Comfort isn’t necessarily the result
of frequent blasts of hot air, but of a steady, smooth flow of lower
temperature air for a longer period of time. That’s how your heat pump
system does it. At low outdoor temperatures the hear pump may be
expected to run continuously. This is a normal operation.
