Just curious about

I have a 3 ton split system, Once the compressor shuts off the interior coil's temp rises until the unit turns back on.
How long say in minutes does it take for the compressor to lower the coil temp down to max cooling at that moment. Obviously hot days would be longer than cooler days. Any one with a rule of thumb?
I would think that given the newer equipment I have the time would be a minute or so?

I am not asking about how long to cool my home.

Too many variables. As a guess...... 3-5 minutes.

Around 15-20 minutes to reach peak capacity and efficiency.
The unit is cycling on space temperature, not coil temperature.
