    I like how you guys are telling him this is oversized online with no information other then sq footage, isnt that as bad as what hes attempting=GUESS! if its a mobile home in south texas and has three familys living in it it might be correct )

    maybe he has vaulted ceilings and glass walls!?! or maybe its a glass ceiling and no walls! OR maybe he needs to hire somebody to do the work before he screws everything up! just a thought.

    I have 2.5 ton in my house and it works fine. 1k sq w/ full daylite basement, brick veneer, r-2 in the sidewalls, split entry. Of course the 2.5 ton is oversized, but it is a XL-19i so it runs on low speed most of the time.

    Besides, how can you go wrong with 8 registers on flex . . . that will drop at least 6k off the capacity.

    Seriously, with the questions your asking your in over your head. "IF" it's for your own house and is a learning experience, ok, but don't learn at someone elses expense. I'm not going to tell you you can't do it, but you have a huge learning curve if you want to do it right. HVAC installs are both a science and an art, and they must work together.

    He's not from Texas. But his area gets hot, I think hotter then your area, his OD design temp is around 110 or so. So 2.5 tons doesn't sound too big for some 1,000 sq ft homes out there.
