    If unit is charged correctly... proper SH or SC,
    will a 4 ton condenser, supplying a 3 ton evaporator, cause it to freeze up( no air restrictions) ?

    thanks guys

    i remember reading about some one here who did that sort of thing all the time

    said that it would work but adjustments to charge had to be made

    not sure who it was but maybe someone that checks this post will know

    suction pressure may seem a little low but as long as you have txv on the coil to control the super heat and you have the proper subcool i think it will work. have heard it will pull more humidity out

    How is it going to pull more humidity out with less coil space?

    Because with a smaller coil it's pulls it out faster.

    Because with a smaller coil surface, the coil is colder.
    So you remove more latent heat.(TXV sized for outdoor unit, and airflow set for outdoor unit.)

    To the OP, you didn't give enough info, to get a definiotive answer.
    The individual system, must be looked, to answer that question.

    Other wise, some will, some won't.
