Hi, my name is Bob, and I have been perusing these boards rarely for the past couple of years. I was wondering about replacing my Heil air handler which is a 2 ton, and 17 years old, as well as my condenser which is a Lennox and about 7 years old and 2 and a half tons. My townhouse which is here in Tampa Bay Florida is upstairs downstairs and just under 1,100 square feet. In the summer when the average temperature is 92 degrees, my system can barely keep the house cool to 80-82 degrees when I set the t-stat to 78. I have kept the system clean and filtered. I am wondering if a new 2 and half ton air handler and a new 2 and a half ton condenser, also with a scroll instead of a recip, to keep things quiet in my small back yard, would be the way to go in these new times. Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated, Thank-You, Bob
P.S. My house is wooden and not very well insulated in the walls. My air handler is in the attic, and we just had a new roof installed with lighter colored shingles as opposed to the darker original ones.
