Why does a heat pump blow out cold air?
The air temperature leaving your register should not be less than 85 degrees. Even though the air temperature coming out of the register is 85 degrees your body temperature is 98.6. The 85-degree air will feel cool.
The problem is not the air temperature but the location and type of register being used. Sometimes a deflector or changing the type of register being used can increase your comfort level.
Remember this: 85-degree air will keep your home comfortable. The answer to being comfortable (even though your heat pump air is cooler) is not to feel it blowing out of the register. When the outside temperature is above 45 degrees, the air from your register should be in the high 90 degrees range.
