Basement Air Service?

Recommended Posts

My Wife tells me I over think things too much. But I have some thoughts about the heat pump side of the unit. I understand if its too cold it does only gas heat and sometimes will do both but I find there is no rim or reason to when one or the other will come on. And I have had mornings when the compressor will start but almost eminently stop and go to gas. Its about time for air conditioning so I am guessing once I start that I might have to start thinking about it again....

Here is how the basement heat pump on our Alfa fiver operates. It will operate down to about 38-40 degrees depending on the amount of humidity in the air, if the temp is lower it will defer to the gas furnace. When turning on the heat pump, check the temperature on the thermostat, move the "set temperature" for the heat pump down only 2-3 degrees below thermostat temperature. Turn on heat pump. Keep adjusting the "set heat" down approx. 3 degrees each time. If you take the "set temp" down a bunch of degrees at one time the heat pump will immediately defer to the gas furnace. We love our heat pump and basement air.
