Phil. I'm renting a relatively new home with a heat pump

Customer Question

Hi Phil. I'm renting a relatively new home with a heat pump and Honeywell 5000 series t-stat. The issue I'm having is that twhile the temperature in the house stays perfectly at the set point, the fan seems to run an awful lot. Not constantly but for several hours at a time. Even when the heat pump seems to not be cycling. I don't know if this is a peculiarity with the t-stat or a sign of some other problem. Thoughts?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: No
JA: OK got it. Last thing — HVAC Technicians generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
