heat pump system is heating when on cool setting every 3-4 days????
 
:no:Can anyone tell me why we get hot air ( the heat strip comes on ) every 2-4 days when the air conditioner is running?
The outside unit is running and the heat strip is running. I can shut it off at the thermostate and turn it back to cool after 15 minute and it works Ok for 2-4 days.
I installed a new thermostrste but it still malfunctions. The system is 3 years old.

sounds like you may have a outdoor thermostat on the system that is malfunctioning or you have short in the low voltage wiring somewhere.

What is the:

Make and model number on the outdoor unit?

Make and model of the thermostat?

Rough explanation of low voltage wiring, can you map it out for us?

Could be a faulty defrost board. Disconnect the wire on the E and W2 terminals of thermostat. And the defrost em heat wire on the defrost control on the outdoor unit. Give us a model/manufacturer of system.
If you disconnect these wires and the heat still comes on then its time to call the a/c guy to chase down the shorted wire.
