Ok... so the system is a gooman heatpump ph018-24 I believe... and I think that I actually fixed the problem.... it is a multistage ( or maybe just auxillary heat actually) anyways, the breaker was on and just for giggles myself I turned the breaker off, and it started cooling down.... now.... I dont find that this makes sense... but.. instead of a heatpump thermostat it has just a regular thermostat..... so I went today and bought a honeywell rth3100c. I have not installed it yet, nor have I taken off more than the faceplate as I have had to move into the house this weekend. (it took 15 solid nonstop hours to pack my 3 story apt into trucks and drive 3 miles away), it is cooling now. I am not going to put this new thermostat on if it doesnt have all the correct wires, I dont want to waste the 450 I just spent fixing it.... but I will post when I get to that point and if I have questions..... I cant begin to tell you guys how much your help means... this really is a dream come true for me.... (ok.. maybe a nap come true until I get things fixed)
ONto the original though.... since turning off that breaker, the air out of the vent is much much cooler, so, could that really have been the problem?
