    Heat Pump Cuts Off But Blower Keeps Running

    I have a lennox heat pump and electric furnace and I noticed tonight that when tstat shuts off the blower will keep going for about 20 seconds before shutting off. Is this normal or is do I need to call a service tech?

    This is normal. What is happening is it is "wringing" the last bit of heating or cooling energy out of the equipment and delivering into your home.
    Use the biggest hammer you like, pounding a square peg into a round hole does not equal a proper fit.
