    Don't shoot me. I'm ignorant, but educable. Does a four ton compressor result in colder air coming from the vents than a three ton? Thanks.

    No. The capacity of the compressor is matched with the coil size and amount of air to provide a relatively similar temperature of air across the entire spectrum of residential systems.

    Yes and No

    No, Robotechs answer is correct if we are talking about proper design.

    Yes, if we are talking of installing a 4 ton unit on a 3 ton duct system. The restriction created by the now undersized ductwork will lower the air volume and air temperature coming from the supply ducts.
