    I'm just waiting for someone to happen along and argue that the larger coil increases humidity removal due to the larger surface area.....so I can rip out their spleen.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    I went on a call the other day and the complaint was the upstairs system was not cooling as well as the old unit did.
    It was a new install and i could not get more than 12 degrees split
    I checked and re-checked everything and even charged the system with new refrigerant 410A, I still couldnt get more than a 12 degree split

    I got tired of the homeowner looking over my shoulder so i gave him a bucket of pukkie and made him seal his return chase
    TXV was good, static pressure was fine on both ends
    This was a Amana ASX14O301AB condensor with the factory matched 3 ton evap coil
    The coil was huge and I ended up replacing the condensor with a ASX140361AB and BAM welcomed a 18 degree split
    The homeowner had puckkie all over his ass when he emerged from his return chase...
    I was so happy i popped a wheelie on the way home

    That myth has been around for longer then I can remember.

    Of course, these days my memory isn't as long as it used to be.

    Maybe the salesman just got the mod numbers off the old indoor coil, and thought the old system was only a 2.5 ton be cause its common to have that 1/2 diff rating between indoor and outdoor.

    the distributor sells 1/2 ton bigger for effiecency ?

    this is just one of those ideas that creep into the counter people with out any knowledge of what they need to match it !

    In many cases it does increase efficiency.
    The question though. Is does the increase hurt latent capacity too much.
