Customer Question

I have a 20 year old Trane 2 1/2 ton Heat pump system with electric heat backup for my upstairs unit. The handler is located in the attic. The unit ( inside) will short cycle in the heat mode. No problems during cooling season. I have moved the stat further down the hallway from the air return and foyer. All freon pressures are fine. Any recommendation?

When you ay short cycle, do you mean it cuts off before thermostat gets satisfied or constantly on and off?Also if you have a heat pump. is both indoor and outdoor going off?
