so, based on these figures, I should go with a 5 ton unit?
Found some more information the load calc.
Structure load = 38618 Btuh
Sensible load = 43676 Btuh
What does this mean?
what does sensible load mean? Why did you say it wont get under 80 degrees?
Sorry for being stupid, just trying to understand.

So, the 2 stage compressor probably wouldn't be a good return on the $ investment.
Should I go with the performance model instead and save the $?
No prices in post.
I'm more interested in the best system for the money ( efficiency and longevity). We do have humidity for approx. 2 months during
our monsoon season.
Is the two stage cooling more efficient? ...
