    OK so it was the 2nd last thing I had to say about the subject... Great Argument Mark, but you still can't convince me that the air that has contacted the coil surface isn't cooling the rest of the air it collides with below the dew point. At least the "bypass" air.

    depends on the bypass factor.


    a iced up coil with 100% bypass factor doesn't cool anything.

    Ok, another question for teh dr.

    In order for the air that contacted the coil to cool the air that didn't contact the coil to below dewpoint temp. How many BTUs would have to be exchanged.

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

    I can almost see the lil wheels in your head spinning... good to get all you guys thinking. Some good arguments were posted to this question and actually it got way more attention than I anticipated.

    Measure and prove yourself wrong, doc.

    Use the psych chart.

    The air leaving the evaporator is not 100% RH.

    If your measuring device indicates that, you need a more sensitive device.

    As noted earlier, the bypass are doesn't bypass the entire coil. It goes between the fins without making contact. Thus, it is not cooled below or to its dew point.
    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.
