It's going to take a while for the 115F degree cabinets, walls, concrete slab, et al to cool off!!! But we have the AC cranked and it's already cooled the house to 85F within 3 hours.
There are two systems within the house:
The main system (purchased with the house) is a 4-Ton system. It was in good condition, so we reused it. We had the condenser relocated to the rear of the property, and we had the blower/furnace rotated to be accessible in the new HVAC closet. This system cools the original footprint of the house.
|The 4-Ton condenser was located on the rear of the house (older picture), and the furnace was accessed via the outside closet (in picture with doors removed).|
|The 4-Ton condenser now resides by the pool equipment in the rear of the yard. It will eventually be disguised by a 4ft wall.|
|The furnace has now been cleaned and serviced, and flipped to face "inside" the new HVAC closet, which opens inside the hallway.|
The new supplemental system is a 1.5-Ton Samsung "Smart Inverter" mini concealed split heat pump. This system cools the house addition (new master bedroom, closet, and mater bath), and provides heat in the winter.
|The outdoor heat pump (condenser) is only 12" wide.|
|Hidden in the master closet attic (older picture), the Samsung system has two vents which supply air to the Master Bedroom (left) and Master Bathroom (right)|
