    New HVAC System Advice

    We are installing a new system in our home and just would like some feedback on what is being quoted, thanks in advance.
    We live in N.W. Iowa, single story 1000 sq ft. ranch with partially finished basement. We are being quoted the following components from a Carrier dealer. The quote also includes extending the current cold air return and adding to it in the upstairs hallway.

    Furnace 59TPS5A060
    Stat White Rogers two stage heat, single stage cooling (he did not have this model number when I talked to him)
    A/C 2 ton 16 Seer 24ABC624
    Coil CNPVPO2417


    Thanks again.

    Go with a1.5 ton a/c. I have 2 ton a/c on 2,200 sqft in Madison WI, more capacity than I need.

    Bear Rules: Keep our home <50% RH summer, controls mites/mold and very comfortable.
    Provide 60-100 cfm of fresh air when occupied to purge indoor pollutants and keep window dry during cold weather. T-stat setup/setback +8 hrs. saves energy
    Use +Merv 10 air filter. -Don't forget the "Golden Rule"

    Did the company run a load to detmine the proper size of the heating and cooling system? If not looks like they are using 500 square foot per ton and coming up with a 2 ton system.

    As teddybear stated in a round about way is the system might not be sized properly for the home. A (1.5) might be all you need to cool and the lowest btu furnace you can get buy in 2 stage might be the way to go.

    I would just ask the dealer how they arrived at the (2) ton size?
