    I did. #3. Called today to schedule. We'd been going back and forth for a few days trying to determine eligibility for a 14SEER-related rebate. I didn't realize everyone was waiting to hear.

    Yeah, no doubt. I thought the price difference between the two was quite large. If it had been half of what it is, I wouldn't have hesitated so much.

    Correct. Just changing the condenser (outside) and coil (inside). I'm keeping the furnace, which is a Goodman GMPN100-4. One of the guys told me it's a 4-ton. I'm not sure how to confirm or deny...

    Ok, you've convinced me. And truth be told, three out of the four HVAC guys who've seen my house told me that increasing the return would help a little at best and that I really should zone.

    sizing a new condenser

    As best as I can tell, and I'm 99.99% certain, this was originally a heat-only system that a/c was tacked onto after the fact.

    Following up on my earlier post, I had a 2nd tech come out today. He also told me I need to replace the a/c unit. The main thing for him was a squeaking noise he heard when the compressor would kick...
