Electric furnace woes!
Hello! I do believe I have a mess.
First off, I plan on replacing this "mess" in the spring but until then I hope someone can help.
I have this Goodman electric furnace in the attic, this is a heat-pump/electric furnace system. Since the outside temp is well below 35 degrees and my heat pump has a bad Freon leak I've opted the run solely on the emergency heat setting using the electric furnace. Now for the "real" problem.
If I set my thermostat at, say 70 degrees, my furnace will come on as expected start with one icon of heat on the thermostat, then two. When the house get to 1/2 of a degree of the set point, the second part of the heating drops out and the darn thing just runs and runs. I spoke with a repairman and he said that Goodmans are designed this way. Just thinking that this cannot be right. Please help and thank you in advance!!!
