    it's obviously the kanutin valve. call up a heating co. and tell them you'd like your kanutin valve replaced. or i can sell you one for $400.00 .

    boy..... this is getting easy.

    damn!!!! tinner always jumping to the conclusion it's the kanutin valve when you know it could also be the flux capacitor.

    thanks, a**holes. Hope your kanutin valve and your flux capacitor find their way where the sun don't shine. Why don't you go back to beating your wives and "figgurin" how to get your elementary school diploma....'preciate the help...

    Now dont get upset...these guys are just joking around with you. Its ironic that all you smart folk usually have the emergency swith in the off position and pay us dummies to come out and turn it on for you.

    By the way..I speak for myself and I am sure alot of others on here as well..I do not beat my wife, I have a graduate level education, and guess what? my heat works **shole!

    Just trying to avoid paying for something like turning a switch on. Didnt mean to get upset, just trying to get a professional response from a seemingly respected site. Thanks to those that responded with actual tips.

    Heatpump is something you have to get used to....

    Heatpumps are very efficient, but recovery rate ( from cold to warm house) is very slow.

    Once your house is warm turn heatpump and let it run 24x7. It works very well maintaining your temperature.

    something I've noticed

    I've been lurking on this site for a few months now. I'm currently in school for HVAC and this site seemed like a good place to learn things that I otherwise wouldn't at school. I am amazed at the number of people who create condescending posts. The reason this site is here (at least to my understanding) is to help each other better understand the trade we are in/the trade we are training for.

    Why some people feel the need to belittle others is beyond me. I hope this site isn't indicative of the types of people I'll meet in my newfound profession, though I've already realized there are jerks everywhere...

    well... no useful info was provided. no serial number or size not even the brand of the equipment. what did you expect?

    do you give your car mechanic these kinds of clues? "my car makes a noise. it's brown. what should i do?"

    please don't assume we're the dumb ones. you came here looking for help because YOU don't know what to do. my house is warm.

    take the stick outta your ass. we were joking. have you ever joked around? jeesh.

    p.s. i don't beat my wife (or kids) and i might have more education than you. unpack your sweaters.

    Man, I got it all backwards.. I was beating my diploma and figgurin out my wife.

    Here's my helpfull advise.... check your filter. This likely won't fix you're problem, but it'll save you from getting an ear full when the tech comes out to fix your unit.

    That is a very unprofessional way to answer an absolute legit question. tinner73, please don't say anything, when you don't have anything good to say. For what do you need for the original question a brand, a serial or the size of the equipment?
    A better answer to this question would have been: Is your filter clean? How cold is it? Your heat pump will probably not run, when it is below 30. When both are negative, please call your HVAC contractor.
    There was no reason to provoke the HO, to lash out and make him assume that every HVAC pro lives in a trailer and will be on a Jerry Springer show.
