    One thing that scares me with variable speed units: if not zoned, you can have air velocity issues on low levels getting heating & cooling to distant rooms. May not be as much of an issue in a 1...

    The Comfort is a bare bones model. No cabinet to protect the coil, no pressure switches to protect the compressor. You're probably running 14 SEER with the variable speed air handler. So going up to...

    The air handlers being bigger do skew a little of the capacity more toward sensible but it isn't much. Real key is blower speeds. If they just leave it where it comes, that's 5 tons of air. I'd want...
