    Looked more closely at AHRI web-site using a ASX14030 2.5 ton unit you need the CA*F3642 coil not the 3636 coil for a match with any type of furnace. In your case the furnace they quoted the ADS is not a match to the OD unit to ID coil they quoted. But as stated it’s still a match from the OD unit to ID coil only if the coil is CA*F3642 to a ASX14030. Anyway if all that doesn’t bother you, then that’s good.
    Why would you use a 36/42 coil on a 030 outdoor? SEER means nothing in real life, the federal government does not dictate what I install... period.

    SEER does not mean nothing in real life, pegmsg reminds me on occasions of that. Need AHRI numbers at the very least for rebates.

    Promoting SEER over EER always sounded fraudulent to me, but SEER=Rebates=Money

    jtrammel was wondering why anyone would pair up a 3 or 3.5 ton evap coil with a 2.5 ton condenser, then questioned the general validity of the SEER system of measuring.

    The problem is that homeowners will jump all over the SEER rating because the energy companies, the hvac industry and of course the hvac salesman want them to. The problem comes when the salesman sells a 21 SEER unit to a customer that really needs new ductwork but instead of spending the money on ductwork and 14 SEER they spend it on 21 SEER and their power bill goes up instead of down. Disgraceful but it happens all day every day.

    Most homes I see have ducts drooping, crushed, missing insulation or “sealed” with duct tape that peeled off years ago, all leaking air. Most people here at least would save more money by installing new ducting than installing high efficiency anything.

    If you have any questions about ductwork, get a duct blaster test done. Only way to prove the ducts don't leak, now the test does nothing to address undersized or oversized (very rare) duct systems.

    As far as who to hire? IMO, the bigger companies worry a lot about sales, and making them, (hiring sales techs) while still important to the 1 man show, they usually concentrate on quality over quantity. I am a 1 man show, and I lost a bid to a big company, they turned around and subcontracted the install to someone who had no prior relationship to that company. Installed system without doing a load calculation, and they have had the unit serviced constantly as a result. But hey, the salesman has very friendly and knowledgeable, company has A++ BBB rating etc...

    Installing the 36/42 coil will actually help dehumidify better plus it will entitle you to any rebates offered by your utility or even tax rebates.

    The 36/42 will only dehumidify if airflow is reduced which results in not getting the SEER you pay for. Plus space constraints making duct issues, no bueno.
