Have 5 estimates for HP for a 2 story 1,872 square foot home with half basement located in central Indiana. 1 estimate for 3 1/2 ton, 3 for 3 ton and one for 2 1/2 ton HP.
The 2 1/2 ton estimate was the only one that did a HVAC analysis. Results below:
Total heating required with outside air 39,863 Btuh
Total sensible gain: 25,375 Btuh
Total latent gain 2,418 Btuh
Total cooling required with outside air 27,793 Btuh
2.316 Tons (based on sensible + latent)
2.746 Tons (based on 77% sensible capacity)
2.5 Ton estimate recommends 13 SEER York with 15KW variable speed electric furnace.
Think the 2.5 ton will work best. Is the 13 SEER York Affinity a good outfit?
