I have a 2 year old bryant 2.5 ton outside compressor. I need to buy an air handler.
Should I only go with a 2.5 ton air handler or can I use a 3 ton AH?
What are the advantages/disadvantages using a 3ton AH inside my attic?
What brands/models do you recommend to buy or avoid?
I read a write up comparing the single speed vs variable speed AH. The variable speed may be what I buy since it's cheaper to run, quieter and supposedly pulls more humidity out of the air compared to a single speed.
The attic is not conditioned and I plan to run insulated flex duct off the AH. The AH is only going to condition the top floor of a small Baltimore City townhouse. It gets very hot/humid in summer and I know 2.5 ton is probably overkill for 1 floor.
Once the AH is installed, I may wrap the AH with more insulation. I'm also going to blow a couple feet of insulation into the attic.
Thanks for any info.
