320BHDS AC blows when furnace is on

It got cold enough here last night for the first time where the electric fireplace wasn't keeping up, so we turned on the furnace and set temp to 70. I was quite suprised to have the ac unit kick on, I knew that the heat comes out of the floor vents and not the ac vents in ceiling.
So my question here is obvious, anyone else have this happen or am I doing something wrong somehow? It dosnt blow cold ac, is it suppose to come on as some sort of circulator?? Any help is appreciated!

If your thermostat is like mine, you should set it on FAN - not COOL or HEAT and use + or - keys to set the FAN to auto (AU) and not LO or HI.

set your digital thermostat to "auto" instead of low or high and it should work fine....

Do you maybe have a heat strip installed in the ac unit.

I have not tried it yet, it's suppose to be a high of 60 this Saturday when we're back out, I'm sure to find out then. As far as the heat strip I doubt it, there was good heat out of the floor vents at the time, just also blowing air from ac vents.

My 290 BHS does the same thing, when the heat is on the AC fan runs all the time in order to circulate the warm air. My furnace heat blows out in the kitchen area, if the fan didn't run my bedroom would get very cold (when doors are closed).

Read the manual for the thermostat.
