Do you know how to et to system settings and do you have the dealer number to access the setup menu?

You may have to contact dealer to get that number if not.

The dealer number is ***** required to prevent customer from making changes.

If you can get to the setup menu what we want to do is go to System Balance point in the menu.There will be a "high balance point" which determines temp at which heat strips can not come on and then a "low balance point" which is temp when the heat pump can not come on.

You will adjust the low balance point there by arrowing down to the temp you want to allow heat pump to run and select save.

I am including a link to the manual.
