Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Central air and heat unit heat turns on for 1min and then heat turns on aux. heat


Answers :

All aux. heat comes on when the thermostat calls for more than 2 degrees of the ambient temperature. Once the 2 degree gap is closed, aux. heat drops out of the circuit.
\015\012Some installers wire the thermostat to activate aux. heat every time heat is called for.In this wiring configuration the aux. heat stays on.

Had a ac tech service central heating unit for the fall. Tech left and I left to do some errands . Now AC unit is not cooling its blowing warm air. I turned the circuit brks off and on inside and outside. I have also checked to see if unit was left on heater. thats not the problem. If I turn theAC on the fan does not turn on outside and there is no sound coming from the unit outside HELP!!! AC was working properly before this.


It may not help but it sounds like the tech took a control wire for the cooling circuit loose at the indoor air handler/furnace so that he could bring the heat on to check it, and forgot to hook it back up. That may not be the case, but if it is it w ... Air Conditioners

I have an old RUUD central AC unit that started blowing hot air. I set the thermostat to off and set the temp gage higher than air temp to turn the unit off and save money, but inside blower unit runs constantly. I'm trying to save money to have it serviced, but noticed my electric bill was higher that last month when the ac was working. The bill was about 4 times higher than the winter when ac is off and the gas heat kicks in. Can the blower running constantly cause this power usage and what is

I have a problem with my central heat / air unit. As it is getting cold now, I am using the heat. My problem is that I must turn the thermostat to the on position to get the unit to come on. In the auto mode, nothing happens. I can get very cold but not ever kick on until I move the switch to the on position. In the on position it works fine. Thinking that my problem was with the wall thermostat, I replaced that. I do not remember having this problem with the A/C. What should I look for to fix t

I installed a new Honeywell Programable thermostat, When I turned on the AC it turned on the Heater... I followed the wiring but some of it is not making sense...

The problem is that I have an Orange and Black Wire left over, Which one do I connect to W? and do I have the wiring right... my unit is a central Heat & Air, not a heat pump.


Hi, the problem is you have bought the wrong thermostat for the unit if it is not a heat-pump. A heat pump will have W-1, W-2 for heat strips, and Y-2 is for 2nd stage cooling. G is Green for Fan, R is Red for Power, Y is Yellow for cooling, and W wo ... Goodman Air Conditioners

My central heater is not blowing hot air, I am having to turn the thermostat on and off. I have the thermostat to 70, and the heater will blow hot air and then it will just circulate the air in the house, therefore bringing the temperature down. I looked at the unit and noticed that when the thermocople (heating element) goes red, the gas valve makes clicking and the flames come and then go out very fast. I noticed lots of clicking in coming from the gas valve. help please

You need to make an adjustment inside the thermostat on the wall. To make the adjustment, lift off the cover from the thermostat and locate the anticipator. If your furnace is running short cycles, the anticipator is probably set on .2 or ... Air Conditioners

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
