I had a new 3 ton carrier infinity system installed in March. My old unit was a 3 1/2 ton. So I questioned going smaller or maybe going to a 4 ton.
My house is a 1900 square foot ranch style one story built in 1979.
We keep the temp at 70 degrees because I like being cool.
My hvac guy did all the load calc. and said new unit should be suffienct to cool the house. Two speed outdoor unit only comes in 1 ton steps.
I live in the panhandle of Fla., so it is hot and humid.
My question is the ac goes to high at about 9:30 in the morning and never cuts off again until 9:30 or so at night.
It runs continuely all day. A couple of days this year, I've noticed 72 degrees in the heat of the day was all it was good for.
Does the unit seem a tad small or is it normal and ok to run all day into the night with out a break
I have noticed just comparing last years elec. bill to this years the cost is down a few bucks, even with a slight rate increase and new hot tub added.
Thanks for any imput you might have.
