    80k btu requires the same airflow as 60? What a crock, a crook, and/or an idiot.

    If you wanted a quiet system, and wanted to go down 25% hoping to achieve that, and they disregarded your hopes...

    Good. Best to slow down and get informed so you can make a wise decision, which is very unlikely when made in haste.

    Get an Ecobee thermostat, it'll log run cycles. It'll give you real...

    A size 9 foot goes from average to tiny when you put it next to a size 15 shoe.


    Your house, relative to that equipment, is tiny.

    Bigger equipment = bigger profit. Might look into an energy audit. Get a third party opinion on that sizing. 4 tons on 2000 sf sounds grossly oversized and suspiciously rule of thumb. Did they do...

    Won't help, your thinking is backwards. You need equipment to run if you want even temperatures in those far rooms, not shut off faster. About to make a frustrating mistake.

    Oversizing tends to be one of the prime driver of problems bringing people to HVAC talk. Spend a little time researching it.

    If you install T B' dehum, you might get away with 2 or 2.5 ton.

    If you don't, better go with 2 stage 3 ton, and make sure the addition is built tight.

    Where are you? Can you describe your house and system? What do you mean you don't use zone 2? If you are getting high static, might want to change that until the unit is fixed.

    2 stage units typically come in whole ton sizes only.

    You might want to get a 2 ton 2 stage, upsize the coil, and accept there may be a few minutes a year that your toaster runs.

    House (7000 sf) nearby with twinned furnaces would start sliding on one furnace when it got down to 15f. We did a fairly minimal amount of air sealing, predominantly in the mostly finished basement...

    Sorry, thought you were building new.

    Get an energy audit, at least a blower door test. That's the first step to understanding what your opportunity is. Ideally you could do some air sealing and...
