Any ideas as to what it could be?
Hey Scopas, I have the same issue going on right now at my house with my heat pump.
Ill skip the huge story and just say that after having 3 different companies look it over, the only thing the most qualified of them suggested was to replace the condenser.
The first thing they checked was for constricted air flow. In particular, they all pulled out the air filter and observed if that changed the temperature of the air coming into the house.
Next they all checked the charge (level of refrigerant).
After that, if its not a simple electrical problem you may be in the same boat Im in right now. Fortunately I bought the HSA warranty and its covered. The total costs to me would have been around $2000.
