Question Trane XE 900 Heat Pump blowing cool but not cold air.

Our heat pump works like normal when heating, but only blows cool air instead of cold air when cooling. The outside unit turns on and stays on. I imagine this is due to it sensing that the air isn't getting cold enough to reach the desired temperature set on the thermostat. Could the fix be something as easy (and cheap) as adding coolant? Any and all help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forums.

The outside unit turns on and stays on. I imagine this is due to it sensing that the air isn't getting cold enough to reach the desired temperature set on the thermostat.
The inside unit and the outside unit will both run if the thermostat is calling for cooling.

Your system does appear to be low on refrigerant.

Thanks for the welcome and response, Pete. How would I go about adding the refrigerant (R22?)?

I don't think we can discuss charging at this forum. You may have to call a AC tech to do it for you. Youtube is also a good place to get more information.
