We never could cool down the house and the humidity rose in the house making it harder to breath. The service techs told us that a/c heat pumps are not as effective in cooling in humid weather as the regular a/c units are. Has anyone had any problems with this a/c in the summers when it is humid? Did you exchange your unit for ? brand, did it work better?
Has anyone converted their Class C to include 100% solar...could it run the a/c? How many panels were you able to fit on the roof. Thanks.
Like many others, we have had a heat pump in our home for twenty plus years here in Layette, La.. Talking about humidity, our area has a constant humidity level higher than most. I can tell you, our heat pump (no A/C unit)works better than an A/C ever did, and it does it "all year long". The unit keeps our home a constant 75* in the summer months and 69* in the winter months.
Additionally we don't even use the heat strips installed in the unit for emergencies heating in the coldest of winter.
So, you can imagine how happy we were to learn that the Jayco Greyhawk MV we were looking at had a heat pump.
Our AC/heat pump in the Greyhawk MV has worked very well for us through out the Summer of '16. We took an additional trip in October in Arkansas with some low forties and high thirties at night. We used the furnace very little because the heat pump worked so well.
