You're looking to condition 7,500 sg ft on the cheap?Your HVAC system could make or break this house.I'd research it a bit further if I were you, and don't go by brand name,go by quality of contractor. A well installed Goodman can easily outlast a poorly installed Trane or Carrier.The contractor is the key. You might want to consider 2 systems with a zone for the basement at .5 ton, the zone experts will know more than me on this subject. Good luck.
If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.
Do you want to spend more now or later?
If you decide to go with a heat pump you will have to spend a little more than with electric strips, but a heat pump costs less to operate and will pay for itself over time.
I dont mind spending more now......just am torn between getting a 14seer goodman or a 15-19 seer trane. Huge price difference.
Or simply have your architect e-mail me the .DWG files.

autocad is very nice, learning it now.
i would spend a fair amount of money of your system. if you have that big of a house. then you need to spend money on it now, or you will get bit in the butt so to say down the road. look on the wall of shame
