Does anybody else feel like the actual output of mini split units is less than the rating, or the output of a conventional AC is higher than the rating? No matter how many times I dig into it, the result is always the same: a 2 ton conventional will always cool better than a 2 ton mini split in the same space. Is there a way to measure actual output? For example, I put a 3 ton Panasonic split HP in my 40x40x14 shop with a 19k cooling and 31k heating load, and the cooling SUCKS. It can run 24/7 and will never pull indoor temp more than 20 degrees below outdoor temp but 15 is more realistic when it's hot. The charge is correct, lines are insulated, it seems to be working properly just doesn't cool well. In comparison, my house has a 29k calculated cooling load and the 2 ton conventional (I installed it when I was 19 and didn't know how to size equipment) will keep it 67 degrees even when it's 105 outside. This just doesn't make sense to me.
