Heat pump putting out air moderately warm until below 35 outside. Then it seems to run constantly. When AUX heating is depressed unit shuts down and must be reset? Can anyone help me? Can i replace a Heat strip or something?

Tampa,Florida?

As fjrachel has responded,your heat pump and insulation factors really weren't designed for this weird weather.I believe when you push aux heat you are locking out your compressor and if you have an energy saving out side tstat it may be keeping aux heat from coming on.You did say YOU HAD NO AUX HEAT?CORRECT?If you leave your tstat to desired temp and HP can not keep up than aux heat should kick in.Have you checked breakers?Buy a thermometer,shut heat off,run fan,get a temp reading,place unit to aux heat and see what temp. increase you get.PDF
