    I guess I used confusing terminology. When I mean over, I mean including (i.e. 2500 sq. ft. over 3 levels). Sorry for that confusion, but ~3500 sq. ft. for all three floors, including the basement, required around a 4-ton unit.

    Ok..

    So the OP has a larger home then you do, since his 3500, doesn't include the basement.

    The exact same two houses oriented differently and landscaped differently could require two different sized systems. You'll need a load calc from someone that can measure the building themselves and evaluate your property using the load calc. or you can do the load calc. that the site has available. HVAC Calc

    Correct, originally I didn't know he wasn't including the basement. So basically my situation should be ignored since my square footage without the basement is likely a bit less than 3000.

    I had a contractor out the house for a new ac to be installed.

    The size he came up with was a 4 ton.

    Does this sound like an adequately sized unit for the size home that I have???
    It all depends on Window Orientation / Area / SHGC
    and WHICH 4-ton?!

    Or is that 2 tons + 2 tons?
