    single capacitor.

    my goodman 3.5ton heat pump is only running 1 capacitor which i am not surprised at, but my question is this. Instead of running the common, the fan and the compressor off the same capacitor does anyone on here think goodman should run two capacitors to split it up or am I way off base here (i am a newbie so i can take critisism if this is a dumb question).

    What do you mean by "am not surprised at"? The use of dual capacitors is very common practice amongst many manufacturers, no harm. It is 2 run caps in one can.

    Dual run caps are the norm for all brands.
