    I recently purchased a 2 1/2 ton Trane package unit heat pump and had it installed about a year ago. Frankly, I think this unit is a bit oversized for a 14ft.X 60ft. mobile home. Anyway, the airflow thru the register vents is very powerful. Can the HVAC installer lower the indoor fan speed without ill effects on the unit, or would this cost to much in energy effiency? Are there speed taps on fan motor to adjust the speed. Would appreciate any opinions before I call the installer. Thanks

    Yes ,air flow should be adjusted for optimal efficiency and comfort.Have a Carrier Dealer take a look at your system.
    Sometimes there are compounding complexities of multiple variables that are not intuitively obvious

    ...maybe they can add a bit of perspective to the published blower/coil data sheets (where available)
