Inspected a house today:
New HVAC installed on 23 Feb 2012 (underwarranty)
Name of unit: Amana
Label ID Plate: Goodman
Unit size: 4 Ton SEER 15
Inside living space 2850sq-ft
Zone 4 (Florida)
Cooling mode: barely cools the inside living space (marginal)
Heat mode: took over 5 minutes to increase Temp to 90F from 75F
It appears that the unit is undersize for the Sq-ft of the living space. Buyer is asking if they should contact the HVAC company and ask them to replace the HVAC with a 5 Ton unit?? Any thoughts?
Acording to my calculations considering the Zone. Summer outside T of 100F, high humidity, +… a 5 Ton should do the work. ???
