Mismatch between condenser and evaporator
Posted 03 August 2006 - 06:37 PM
In researching all of this, I've found precious little in the way of hard data on what such a mismatch really implies for the system. I'm currently pressing the a/c contractor (by way of the builder) to show me that Goodman supports and recommends this configuration. In the meantime, I'd like to learn from the great minds here what the real implications of this setup are.
Any insight is appreciated.

Sometimes the air handler is upsized by 1/2 ton to boost airflow in a system with alot of duct transitions, etc. Your system is limited to the condenser capacity. In other words the evaporator can try to remove 5 tons, but the condenser can only unload 3.5 tons. The rest results in higher pressures and a warmer evaporator coil.
If you can get the builder to straighten it out, you should have him do so.
