I didn't have a blower door test.

The old unit may not have been producing 3 tons anyway for all I know. The last 4 years it has sounded like a jet engine.

I am just afraid to go from 3 ton to 2 ton even knowing the new technology is far superior to what I have.
Like I mentioned, my house is only 1500 s/f on one level. It is well insulated in my opinion and I think it is pretty much "draft-free".
Maybe a 2 ton, 2 stage is the way to go as a 3 ton 2 stage may be overkill. ???
