Heater Help

When we turn the furnace on, the air conditioner comes on. We have to*turn off the 30 amp breaker and it turns off many electrical receptacles.
WE HAVE A 2013 Surveyor Sport with a Suburban air conditioner/furnace.

Turn your fan to auto not "on" at the thermostat.

It has a "auto" function as well as a " on " function, you may not know how to use your thermostat.

Without the model of thermostat I cannot help you get your fan to auto.

Yours and mine are the same. It's actually the "fan" that is coming on, not the A/C (they both sound alike- the fan just doesn't kick on the A/C compressor to make cold air).

To get the desired behavior:
Push the button until you the light is on for "Fan". Change it from "Hi" or "Low" (or even just "On") until it says "Auto".

Then go back to furnace and turn it to the temperature that you're after. The fan in the A/C shouldn't come on now.

Turbs and Doug have you headed the right direction. Select the "fan" via mode button and the press + or - till it says auto.

Let us know if that does the trick.









Turbs... Heat pump... Really!? :-)
