    I currently have been slapping band aids on my 20+ yr old 2 1/2 ton snyder H.P. I was just wondering if anyone had any recomendations for replacement. It is for a 2 story house with a finished(heated and cooled) basement not sure on the square footage w/o checking but my current 2.5 ton unit does ok. I appreciate some info and appoligize for not having any more specs for u.

    Start calling all your friends and people that you know.
    Ask them about contractors that installed their system
    or are servicing their system.
    Pick 3 best rated contractors. Call them for estimate.
    Come back with their recommendations and I am
    sure that you will get many opinions about whom to chouse.
    Remember the old saying: “It is not the make of equipment.
    It is a quality of installation that really matters.”
    I see that John gave you very good reading material.
    Use this knowlage to ask your recommended contractor questions about changind your system.

    Good Advice Baldloonie

    Click on the red tab above and do your own heat load/loss calculation. The figures used to size equipment 20+ years ago just doesn’t work with to days equipment. ( Has insulation been added, Windows upgraded, Leaks sealed).

    Call 3 contractors and inform them that you want a Manual “J” done for proper sizing. If they wont do it then don’t waste your time.

    Post back with your findings.
