I have one last question, Obviously the 16 seer units from Trane and Amana are both 2-stage compressors but I have downloaded HVAC-Calc and completed a load analysis and the recomendation is 2.5 tons. (Below are the actual gains/losses) My question is going with a 3-Ton 2 stage compressor going to be overkill? I beleive in both applications the matching proposed coil is about 40,000 BTUH. The proposal for a 14 seer sytem from either brand was for 2.5 ton Heat Pump and 31,000 BTUH Coil. Both application will use a Variable Speed blower.
Sensible Gain 23,586
Latent Gain 4,247
Total Heat Gain 27,833
Total Heat Loss 64,284
