Heat Pump

My heat pump unit works fine on ac but only blows cool air when set to electric heat. Outside temp is in the mid 50ís. Any suggestions?

2013 36 RE.

You can only set it for 2 degrees higher than the current temp in the coach or it will revert to the furnace for heat. Then you have to go in 2 degree increments to get heat where you want it.

I have been trying and only go up two degrees at a Rita’s suggested. Thanks. Our unit is 7 years old. How many have had to replace their ac and/ or heat pump units and how old were they when you replaced them?

It doesn't feel warm right a way but if it is working properly it will blow warm air using 2 degree increments and as long as outside temp is not below 40 degrees. Ours is almost 8 years old and working. We did have to replace the forward a/c unit this year. It was not a heat pump.

Our 2013 is 8.5 years old this year. Rear AC Heat pump is original. Replaced fan motor this year. Front AC unit bit the dust this year and I decided to replace it with a heat pump unit. Wasn’t a big deal to change over and now we have two heat pumps.
