    I understand. And I'm willing to do the legwork and homework, as well as finding and staying within state and local code requirements, not counting the license.

    We don't offer services, we design, manufacture and sell products globally. The service sector limits you to your time, hence the profit, then you hire people and play the fire extinguisher for the...

    I hold 3 degrees, one being in engineering. Used to work for Benz in R&D, back in Germany, as well as in aviation on S-76s. I never cared about HVAC, which is why I arrived with simple questions, but...

    Good thoughts, and yes, the entire service sector is a mess IMO. I had the same issues with another home build by Pulte, my 2018 Z51 Corvette was burning 2 quarts of oil every 1k miles and 8 GM...

    Manatee County.

    If I want to upgrade, in case my current system can't be improved, how about a 3 ton system with existing duct work? The current system is completely silent, I wouldn't care about...

    Thanks guys!

    I made an appointment for tomorrow and let them check the duct work as well.

    Why would I have to change all the duct work for a higher ton unit? Won't it just produce more cold air...

    The humidity in my house is 58%. I measured it over night.

    I did use another BTU calculator with more options for data. It suggested a 4 ton system for my conditions and house. Hence my current 2...

    Thank you for the input.
