Hi Doc,Originally posted by docholiday
Ok when you two girls are finished I would like to offer alternative questions.
Is this a tweo stage system? If so, is there a way to override it to run at 100%.
Im not busting chops here but if this is indeed a 2 stage, I recall looking a similar blue one up and it didnt have very good latent capacity on low stage, even when in dehumidification mode. If its a single stage then I am surely off base,
Just food for thought but similar to the 180 mph speedo in my car, I can only do 120. Is it remotely possible the limited run time on this machine will not get the humidity any lower until the load increases? I mean just because the control has a set point that doesnt mean its got the capcity. Could it be oversized? If I remember correctly, this is a zoned system, are we dumping all the capcity into only one zone at a time?
Yes, this is a 2-stage Byrant system. Low-speed on the compressor is 50% - it is 1.5 tons at low-speed and 3 tons at hi-speed. The Evolution control regulates the fan coil speed and there is a humidistad. My HVAC guy caught the thing switching into heating mode periodically - apparently a known problem and he will be replacing the board in the condensor unit. Regardless, he thinks the condensate drip is way to slow and he claims that it should be able to get the RH into the 40% range. I havent seen the RH go below 57% whether in low-speed or high-speed. This is a new house with tight construction so I dont think air infiltration is an issue - it just doesnt seem to pull moisture out of the air.
