!!" #$ % Important Facts You Should Know About Your Heat Pump (602) 943-3426 or (520) 292-6858 www.ChasRoberts.com • 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. ! " # $ :<=>;?@AA@><:B>=;>?><CBC #.

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. %:@A&BC<9<CA:%=A@&ABA9:D=D 0$ !! * "# $ %& ' $ " ( ( ) + ",$ !!-$. / * !! 01,.//2 $$,+1.0/2!1,$3 !.1-$, +,$., ! ) . 4 $5!1,$3"11 .!!,0 6, +$ +,$ +,$! $7./0, ! 5 -$ .$ 0 / /,$ $ 6,. +-7+ ./ 36 -1 / *, /,21,0, ! 0 0$ .0 0 353,7 0 16,. / ,8 . 0.$, !0.*/, " 9 : /3-!!0,/6,./2 $0 1/2 ) % & * .
