The first week of July my AC Heat Pump went out on me. It was a 10 Seer 13 year old Goodmen. It was a 2 Ton and the house was 1180 sf. Since then we turned half the Garage into a Room with new duck work added. This added an approximate 150 sf for a now total of approx 1350. This room is usually closed off most of the time.
It was suggested with get a 2 1/2 ton. Money was tight so we purchased a 15 SEER Goodman System Unit.
This unit turns on and off about every 10 minutes. It does not matter what time of day or what the temp is inside or outside. We have the Therometer set at 77.
We are located in the Tallahassee Florida area.
My first full month electric bill indicates my KW usage is about the same as it was for the same month for the last 2 years.
When I question the AC Company about this, I am being told there is nothing wrong with the system and it is most likely due to the humitity.
