Thanks for your comments, Bill! I actually tried to research my December post to see if your replies back then would answer my present questions, but I wasn't able to find it. I'm amazed that you even remember that far back. I can't recall most of what I did yesterday. But you're right, I need to dig into this to do it right. However, I have to say that if getting a load calculation before installing a new A/C is as important as all you guys claim (and I'm sure now it is), then load calcs should be more widely performed, and offered up front, free-of-charge, by every A/C contractor who renders an estimate IMHO. It's interesting that at fifty years old, and after having purchased new A/C units in the past, I've never heard of a load calculation until today. What can I say, but thanks for the education! ~rick

glad to hear you are finally getting rid of the dinosaur. if you are planning on living in the house for a while, any money spent will be enjoyed in the future.
why do people lease a lexus that they drive from point a to point b, for a couple of hours a day, but refuse to invest in a system that is not only more comfortable but probably healthier for their families.
you live, sleep, eat and relax in this enviroment, why not be as comfortable as possible?
do the load calc. and consider adding accessories to make life even better. the old adage "you get what you pay for" is definatley true in home comfort.
