I know it is almost taboo to oversize a condenser, however I am right at the break point of a 2TON system in my house after a J load calc.
As you are probably aware the XL16i don't come in .5 increments rather 2 or 3 TONS.
Here is my reasoning and let me know what you think.
I figure since the XL16i is a 2 stage unit I will probably be running the 1st stage most of the time, until temp increases and the load in the house increases then 2nd stage kicks in.
In my previous post I stated that I am considering expanding over my garage in about 5 years (maybe), if I do i would hate to have to pull out a 5yr old condenser.
What are your thoughts?
