Most of us know that these compressors allow us to operate more efficiently through out the year by varying capacity according to need, normally determined by a high quality thermostat. Here is my queston for the engineers: I have experimented with running on 67% capacity in the summer by using the 170 # 2 option in the Honeywell Pro Vision 8000 with the following results: very good dehumidification (@ 50%), good comfort levels, and of course the sensible heat floats up and can remain 2 - 5 degrees higher than set point depending on the temperature outside, which right now is @ 100 degrees. Generally, with the exception of 101 - 102 days and 94 degree nights, the temp would slowly work its way back toward setpoint after the sun goes down. One nice thing about about this is that the compressor just chugs along with little on and off. Those of you with the scientific calculators; thermostat settings not changing, would there being any difference in total KW usage between 67% loading and 100% loading (which really is a call that goes back and forth between Y1 and Y2 as determined by the thermostat? We would of course reach setpoint quicker on 100% loading, but in fact we never stop running or dehumidifying on 66% capacity which is drawing 1 1/2 amps less than full capacity.
