I have new Bryant R410 2.5 ton SEER12 HVAC system installed April 2004.
Area being cooled is 1500 sq ft. House is Split Entry so some overflow to first floor. Living area is on second floor. Two adults. No children. One dog.
the humidity levels in our home last summer stayed at 48 to 55 percent despite running 24/7.
Some days we had to open the windows as the humidity was lower outside. We kept a careful log of humidity and some mornings the humidity in the house was higher than outdoors.
Contractor and Bryant engineer drew out all refrigerant and recharged system in July 2004 upon our complaint about lack of dehumidification, but there was no change.
I opened the door to air handler in attic in June.Very little water was coming out of the condensate pipe before and after the recharge. There is very little water dripping off the coil even on a 75 percent humidity, 90 degree day.
I had an American Standard 2.5 ton HVAC system for 34 years. On a hot, humid day I watched the water poured off
the coil and into the drain tube. I loved the 34 year old American Standard system but it was falling apart.
Only measured drops come off this coil. The pan is tilted correctly. It was not so at first, but was corrected upon my complaint.
Bryant and the contractor refuse all help.
Today I talked to a different HVAC supplier who suggested that the superheat temp and subcool temp may be the culprit.Wouldn't the Bryant engineer have checked that routinely?
We are fast coming into a new season here in Reading MA in beautiful New England.
Can any one help me
