A general question about the balance between Sensible and Latent capacities. My understanding is that the Latent load is used to remove the humidity and the sensible is used to cool the air.
Assume I have a calculated load of 23,500 BTUH sensible and 4,300 BTUH latent for a total of 27,800 BTUH.
Lets say I use a system rated 26,500 BTUH Sensible and 8,100 BTUH Latent for 34,600 Total to condition this house.
When the system starts most of the energy will be used to remove moisture until wet bulb temp gets close to coil temperature.
After a while when things settle down and steady running conditions are achieved and I am no longer having to dump large amounts of moisture on the coil, does any of the Latent capacity transfer/help the Sensible cooling capabilities?
In other words, is the Latent cooling rating only available to remove moisture or can it help the Sensible cooling?
