Around the 76*F to 78*F range. Our thermostats run on a program.

< 76'F and I hear from my wife that it seems cooler than normal. More normal electric bill $ 100 - $120.

Our electric bills were a little higher than yours, but we still saved a lot of energy with our new units compared to our old ones.

The units have longer cycles in heat mode than in cool mode.

I will call the HVAC company some time next week to have a contractor come out to evaluate both systems including all of the ductwork and I'll ask him if smaller systems would be ideal for sometime in the future. Thanks for all the input. I'm glad that I posted this thread! I'll update as soon as possible afterwards. If you still have any recommendations, then go ahead and post them and I'll read them whenever I get a chance.

I don't think there's anything wrong with the coil. Well there could be you never know I guess...

Ok I turned on the heat this morning because the house was pretty chilly inside. The unit ran like a champ, did NOT startup/shutdown for a few seconds and turned back on and all that stuff. The unit actually ran for a good several minutes and kept the house right where I wanted the temp to be set at.

Update...... The charge is what was the problem. After that was corrected, the system has performed flawlessly.
