I'm assuming you have central air conditioning (ac) and not a window unit? If you have an AC unit that is described as a "heat pump" then yes. The heat-pump is designed to heat your home in colder weather. The AC - heat-pum unit should be able to heat your home down to about 20* Fahrenheit. After the heat pump loses it's efficiency, you would manually select emergency heat on your thermostat, this is a good way to determine if you have a heat-pump unit as well .

What happens to the temperature of a room in which an air conditioner is left running on a table in the middle of the room?

Temperature of a room will goes up.Consider a room as a closed system. The only energy entering or leaving the room is from the AC unit. The AC unit cools some of the air inside the room by pumping refrigerant/coolant and heating up other air of the room (typically that exhaust air would be sent outside). Heat exhausted from the AC pumps increases the temperature of the room.

If a room has a lot of windows In the winter the room hers very cold even though the rest of the house is warm How do we reduce this?

If a room has a lot of windows in the winter, but this roof is very cold even though the rest of the house, it is losing heat. Seal the windows to make sure no heat is escaping through small cracks.


Why does the AC sysmbol light come on when the heat is turned on and set to defrost-vent and will not turn off even when shut off button is hit?

DO NOT FEAR THIS !!! The ac comes on with the defrost: because do you ever use your ac in the winter? me neither. Manufactures have made the ac come on with the defrost to prevent the ac compressor from seizing up. Since we never use them in winter, at least in cold climates. Cheers and drive on.


Why does a warm room get cold after a while during the winter?

there is a temp difference say room 30c and room 25c. as a result heat due to convection flows from hot to cold area. so the heat from room gets convected through air medium to the surrounding.hence room gets cold after a while
