Do you have it set to Emergency heat normally you have to put it into emergency heat on most thermostats...this is typically not automatically done. Note if the heat pump is keeping up with temps there is no need to switch anything. As the name implies, it is only used in emergency situations. It is used when there is something wrong with first-stage heating (the Heat Pump itself). If that is fine I would not switch it.

All I ask is please rate my service if you need more help let me know.
