I just had high velocity a/c installed. The first day was very hot and humid (90s & 80s) and after 5 hours with the thermostat at 72 degrees, the temp in the house had only fallen from 82 to 76. I thought the a/c was not working right or that I needed a bigger unit, but the contractor insisted that on a hot/humid day, it could take 6 to 10 hours or more to reach a comfortable temperature, but that once it did it would work fine. Is this correct and normal for high velocity?

With to large of a unit, the unit does not run long and therefore does not de-humidify. So the unit may satisfy faster, but the relative humidity may not be within comfort levels. Be patient and turn the unit on in the morning when the dew point has been reached and your unit with keep up.
