I have a trane HVAC unit in my 6000 square foot home...3000

Customer Question

I have a trane HVAC unit in my 6000 square foot home...3000 square ft on the main walk in floor that has 10 ft high ceilings that consists of 8 rooms. this floor has a south easterly direction but has 12, 8 x 4 foot windows. The walk out basemt of floor has only one floor with the same amount of windows but the rest of the basement floor is beneath ground.
I have a trane hvac system that is useless as it always freezes up. What size of an HVAC system should I be using? We also have a seperate in floor heating unit.

If the unit is freezing up the unit is either too low on freon or the air filter is too restrictive on the unit. You should try a new less restrictive air filter and if it still freezes up- you need the system checked as it is either low on gas or the sealed system has a restriction.
