Usually mine will run 5-8 Minutes and shut off... But I'll be back to normal soon...lol
Holly crap Don, I believe mines a 1 1/2 ton unit and I should have a 2 1/2 ton. I wish I was able to purchase the unit myself but I heard I can't since I don't have a license. I ended up installing the present one myself but it was fairly easy since the lines were already precharged and I did the electrical myself. I ended up getting the unit off of a friend, but haven't seen him in over 10 years.

2000 sq ft under air in Florida does that... My neighbor has 2300 sq ft and a 5 ton unit.. The good thing is that the new technology had been in place when I got my 4 Ton, but not the neighbors... his 5 ton chews some wattage.... Mine is considerably more efficient, as well I have far better insulation too...

My Family in WV has a similar unit.... looks to be a 2-2.5 ton.... when its really hot it seems to have a hard time keeping up..

How may hot months do you have up there frank?

The first day at around 90 F here was about the beginning of June and I don't know how many months it will last. Here it'* more about the humidity. I remember the first time I went to Vegas, it averaged 104 F but very little humidity, it felt like around 80 here. You could easily get burned there but you'd never know it untill it'* to late. It is a dry heat there.

What a bunch of Biatchin whiners..... I'm ready to run for the car...oh wait.. superchargers SUCK in hot humid weather.

Yeah..the weather had been nice lately. Last night found me leaning over a 99 Maxima changing coils while it was still smoking hot and the humidity didn't help much. I think I left almost as big of a puddle on the floor from sweat as the AC from the car.

No power loss here


All of the little odds and ends helped offset any Power loss

Home AC is now fixed and functional 100%.... Got it set at 77 and its back to its good old cooling habits.... Run for a few and shuts off like normal...

Thank God..

It was getting over 80F in here a while ago
