"looking at the information provided:
1 - is the system a multistage unit to better match load as well as zoning demands.
2 - is the heating capacity properly matched to to home demand - does the backup heat run?
3 - is the cooling capacity too large…"
"My home also has variable speed blower and a special blower setting to maximize system performance and moisture extraction. I have attached an extraction from the air handler documentation showing how the blower operation can be moderated.…"
"Some manufacturers have a ramp down and in some cases a ramp up fan behavior (variable speed blowers) that run at lower speeds for a few minutes at the end and beginning of the cooling cycle to extract more moisture from the air stream. This…"
