Help with Daikin split unit (basic operation seems inefficient)
I have moved into a new condo with two FXAQ24MVJU units. I need some help from experts understanding what the deal is with these, because *I can't find anything online, including the sparse manuals on Daikin's site*. Thanks in advance!
So first of all the two units came with one BRC4C156 remote control for the two units. The FXAQ units don't have a temperature display, just a small panel on the right side with basically one button (the entire thing turns on and off). Only the remote has a temperature display, but it's set by you. There no way to see the thermostat of the unit.
I am having a lot of trouble using these units as heat pumps. It's only just starting to get a bit cold here (around 45-50 outside). It's going to get a lot colder.
My question to you is, where do I find the user facing operations manuals for these? How do I tell whether they were set up correctly? This is a rental (previously sales units but converted to rentals) and the details and people involved are all history.
For example, I have left the unit in 'heater' mode, and the fan continually runs blowing normal / cold air. If I set the temperature for 80 degrees, when my room is about 65 or such, the heater will turn on, and hot air will come out, but that will last only a minute or two before it blows normal/cold air again (you can hear the heat pump turn off). It's literally a minute or two. Sure, it heats up .. but I thought these things reached peak efficiency after 10 minutes of continuous heat pump blowing.
Is there something wrong with the thermostat? or does that sound normal?
Next - I want it to blow heat at a steady rate, and then turn off the fan when it reaches the desired temperature. I don't want the fan to always blow. Why would a heating unit continuously blow not hot air when its heat pump is turned off? Doesn't just wear down the fan -- and my wallet, because of the electricity costs?
Also – how do I use one remote (BRC4C156) for two units? It's a mystery to me how this place was set up. It came as a surprise – after lease signing.
Was something missing in the installation of the unit? or is the above setup normal?
