    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    been there,

    do you still feel the system is oversized or does it sounds like it's running normal now? And what run times should I expect after dark? Thanks

    Hard to say how much shorter they will be after the sun goes down and you don't have solar gain anymore.
    If after it dark its still 92 outside and your on times drop to less then say 8 minutes. Your probably over sized.

    Downstairs has run for 8 hours to keep temp @ 75*....Ruud 2 ton 13 seer...

    Very happy with the humidity levels...

    That seems a little long to run without any stopping. But i'm not a pro at all. Thats why iv'e been asking all the questions on here so I know what to tell my installers.

    I had a couple 2 hour plus cycles yesterday on my unit.

    Today, I expect them to be longer yet, its suppose to get 2* hotter today.

    Monday, mine may end up running non stop in the afternoon, until the evening after the sun has gone down.
