    oversized supply duct

    can the supply duct be too big?, say current set up for 3 ton, changed to 2 1/2 ton.

    Not likely,in the senario,if it's an issue,just add a damper or other restriction to raise the static.

    The ductwork may have been undersized for the 3-ton unit.
    The half-ton less is inconsequential, & may improve operating efficiency.

    When one gets to the larger 3.5 to 5-ton equipment, doing whatever is necessary toward downsizing tonnage is very important, so that the duct system won't be undersized!
