heat pump issue


This morning my heat pump came on and the outside unit was running as well as the inside unit but the air coming out was not cold. So I turned the thermostat to off and waited for 15 minutes and put it on cool and it worked fine and I was wondering what would cause this. I wondered if I have a pending problem or could it have been a fluke?

it is possible that the compressor did no start outside and only the fan was running. This could indicate a compressor or capacitor problem.

Should I set up an appointment with my home warrannty company or wait and see if it happens again? They replaced a start capasitor last year but the outside unit wouldn't come on at all.

good luck with your home warranty! Doubtful they cover anything that isn't completely broken.
