Hey guys, don't know if anyone has any experience with air conditioners here but our new A/C is really wacky and was wondering if anyone had any opinions or advice. Here's the story, around mid March our old A/C unit's compressor broke and we decided to get a new A/C unit which was the same brand as the one before, a Carrier. The new unit is supposed to be more efficent with HEPA filtration etc. it even has one of these new digital thermostat things which are supposed to be more accurate. Now moving into Summer my state, Florida has had it's warmest days yet and our air conditioner has started wigging out (at least to us). A good example of this was Last friday when the air was set to 79 degrees, our typical temperature and the thermostat showed 84 in the house . We immediatly called our installer and he came over, he checked and everything was fine with his unit, one of his workers bumped the air down to 72 or 73 and it worked fine but it seemed to run for 2 hrs straight without hardly shutting off or not shutting off at all. The following day the same thing happened. Once again the installer came out and added more insulation behind the thermostat, same stuff happened worked fine but hardly shut off except at night it continued normal cycle no problems. Sunday it did the thing where the thermostat kept going up and up despite the set temp and the unit would rarely shut off, by now the installer agreed to install a new thermostat and see if it worked so we were waiting until Monday to do that. Yesterday rolled around and it repeated the events of Saturday and Sunday until the installer came over and installed our new thermostat. Everything worked fine last night and than today when I got home it started acting up again going to 82 when it was set on 79. We kicked it down to 77 but it seemed to take an hour to even go down a degree. The concern here is that possibly the unit we have may be unefficent for our house since this problem seems to occur in the heat of our florida days. Our neighbors have the same unit only slightly bigger and claim no problems with theirs, they usually keep their termostat set around 75 or so and never change it. The installer who did our neighbors's did ours and is their friend. Him and his 2 workers have checked the unit and claim it is running fine. He is willing to put the heavier version of our unit in for $350 but what extra good will 1/2 a ton do?! given what I describe do you think the unit is inefficent for our 1100 SQ ft house or are we just going crazy? all materail the installer has on our unit claims it can work fine for our SQ footage but you never know. Thanks.
