I have a Rheem A/C Heat Pump split with gas backup. The gas unit is mounted in the air flow directly before the A/C HP coil. Should the gas unit be wired as stage two heat, or is it OK to wire it as just aux/EM heat? There is no other heating unit. What is the difference between stage two and aux? Please note that the aux gas heat cannot come on if the heat pump is running or it may hurt the heat pump due to the gas heat units location.


Stage 2 is okay as long as there is a fossil-fuel kit accessory wired in the field control wiring. EM heat would only allow gas furnace operation if the thermostat is set for EMER HT mode.......this is not ideal and not recommended. Dual-Fuel applic ... Air Conditioners

I have a Intertherm P3rA-042K that runs the ac at the same time as the heat strips. I have a Honeywell RTH3100c I have the red wire at R the Yellow at Y the Green at G and the W2 at aux. I had a jumper between Aux and E like the manual said but it makes no difference. Also for some reason it was hooked up before with a blue wire joined with the red at the unit and the blue going to B at the thermostat. I removed the blue as i saw no use for it and it still doing the same thing. The unit froze up


Red, green, and yellow should all be from AC unit. What other wires do you have there, and are they separate from red , green, yellow? ... Intertherm P3RA-042K Air Conditioner

I have a Select Comfort 2000 thermostat. I just replaced new batteries couple days ago. The past week my heat will be working fine all day and/or night then suddenly it will not kick in and the aux light is lit. Over the past few days it has finally kicked in and worked now today is a different story. I have even tried to replace the batteries again still nothing. HELP!!


Sounds like you have a heatpump. Is that correct? When it gets under 35F or so the heatpump just isn't able to keep up with the heat demand and will require help from a backup source such as electric strip heaters. The way the thermostat works is tha ... Air Conditioners

We are having to replace a 17 yr old heat pump a/c system. I have a 2-ton unit and don't like any of my quotes but the more of them I get I wonder if maybe I already have my best quote. Here is what I have: Goodman equipment for $3.8k; Rheme for $3.3k; Weatherking for $3.1k; and the last is a Frigidaire make i think, for $3.6k. I need to save money because i also have to replace a roof NOW. Input please on the different brands and warranties. Are these prices good?


Sheeesh, they know how to charge don't they, but in saying that these quotes all seem to be OK, or at least within ballpark of what one would expect from the differing suppliers. \015\012\015\012Rheme for $3.3k This is what I think is a ... Air Conditioners

My monthly electric bill is huge.. am thinking that it might be my furnace is not set properly? (true or not?) usually keep it around 68. Seems like its in an 'auto' mode (which might make sense), but since i have both the heat pump and an oil furnace (serving as aux heat), am thinking that i might be better served if the oil were being use more when it gets colder? (true or not?) how do i determine and set the temp levels so that my aux heat will kick in if the outside temp falls below 4

Replacing a Rheem Heat Pump condensor with a Goodman Heat Pump condensor. We have never installed either brands. Have been advised that Rheem has different wire scheme for reversing valve. Question is... is there any technical information available from Goodman covering how to wire the 24 volt wiring system for a Goodman Condensor with a Reheem AHU, and describes the differences? Thank you!


The difference is that the reversing valve is energized it heat mode for one brand and energized in the cooling mode for the other brand. An "O" on the circuit board indicates energized in cooling and a "B" on the circuit board indicates energized in ... Goodman Air Conditioners

Intermittent heat I have a Carrier (Payne) unit (FA4ANF030) with intermittent heat output. The air works as does the fan when in heat mode, but usually no heat. Sometimes it will suddenly begin to put out heat normally and will function fine...until it doesn't. The thermostat was old, so I replaced it first. Seems to make no difference at all since it works exactly as before.
