2 Ton vs 2.5 Ton
I have a HVAC newbie question. I recently had an infinity furnace and performance heat pump installed with an infinity control. The system is not working up to par in my opinion. It runs constantly from about 1-3:30 til 11:00ish to maintain a temperature swing of less than 18 degrees from the outside and sometimes will also slip a degree or 2 during the hotter times of the day (I keep it at 75 and the worst day we had since install was 90). This is also causing very low humidity levels (29-35%) and I am sure a hefty electric bill. I am not sure exactly what is the issue since it is a 2 ton unit and it replaced a 2 ton unit. I do know that I am not getting the airflow I had before because the inifinity system only allows a max of 400 cfm/ton. My main question is, given these symptoms, would a 2.5 ton system be THAT much more of an increase in size? The dealer said he would install a larger condenser if needed, and I feel that this may be where we end up but I wanted to make sure that half ton is not an excessive increase.
