Being a carpenter I don't know much about HVAC. My question is.. is the outside unit supposed to be running while the inside unit is? Heating not cooling.

Then, the answer is yes. Periodically, you will hear a whoosh noise, that can sound overwhelming. This noise is normal, as it is going into a defrost cycle that lasts a few minutes. The purpose of the defrost cycle is to melt any ice build-up that collects on the outdoor coil.
