heat pumps are no good up north
by: Anonymous

heat pumps does not cool below 55 deg and also heat pumps only put out about a one hundred deg temt. your body runs at 98.6 so your only talking less than 2 degs so it is always going to fell cold.

The best place for heat pumps are in the south sorry.as far as your cooling goes it may be over charged or under charged or your freon may be fractionated if it is 410a it is hard to tell without looking at it best of luck with ac guys i know I'm one myself.

Find another service company
by: Chester

From your description of the problem it sounds like you are low on refrigerant. You have a 3 ton unit and that should be big enough to cool a home up to about 1200 to 1500 square feet, depending on how well the house is insulated. Heating will depend these same factors, plus the outdoor temperatures. A heat pump should provide enough heat to keep you comfortable until the outside temperature falls to about 40°F. At that point the electric heat elements will provide most of the heat.

I would call a different company than the one who has not been able to find and fix the problem. There are several listed in the Yellow pages that serve Mt. Pleasant. Ask your friends and neighbors who they use and call the one who is most recommended.
