    And design, install and commission the HVAC system.

    What Im attempting to say is do not focus on capacity numbers, but rather on compliance with the vendors specifications. Does this make sense?

    Absolutely, so the next question is where do you go to find the vendors specs without having to ask anyone...just trying to filter out diff opinions of diff HVAC contractors, so as not to confuse opinion with fact...thanks

    Question Learn from the ' Best '

    UKTRA,

    Please provide link to specifics like Floor Plan,
    Window Area, S.H.G.C., U-value, Insulation values, ...

    Now that's something WE Can ALL Learn from:
    1,000 Sq. Ft./Ton

    Does anyone else in Houston build to that level?

    I'd like to know how to get just half way there...
    800 S.F./Ton
