    Click on the hvac calc tab, and do a load calc.

    3 tons sounds like too big of an A/C for that houose.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    To put all your minds at ease, I know you take your business seroiusly and yes, my friend is a certified a/c contractor. The builder's price for the unit seemed extremely high and just made more sense purchasing the compressor from an outside contractor. Just went for the walk-through and the furnace seems to be doing the job. It cycled about 15 min. on and 20-30 off, and the temp. was very confortable for a setting of about 70 deg. on a day at 34. Since it appears that a 3 ton coil is a bit oversized, is it better to go with a 2 ton or 2.5 ton unit and is it possible?

    Thanks for all the advice!

    Go here and find out what size you really need, so you don't waste money on the wrong size unit.
