I need help in deciding on a replacement central air conditioner

7 years ago

I need help in replacing 38 year old 1 1/2 ton 8 Seer Luxair central air conditioning system. My home is a small 980 sq ft. with seven air vents. After researching the top central air systems recommended by Consumer Reports and what I have read on the Energy star site, I am leaning toward the Lennox 1 1/2 ton, 18 btu, 14.5 Seer plus replacement of the ductwork. However, the estimates I have received to date, recommend 2 ton 24 btu 16 Seer. I was satisfied with the Luxaire when it was operational. never to cool. Am I missing something?
