How to Size Air Conditioning for Your Home

We have plans for a home that has 3124 s/f on one level. The home will be constructed with 20% stone and 80% Portland stucco. Two builders recommended two HVAC systems be used while one builder said that I only needed one. The home will be built in central Georgia.Please advise,

Hi Ron,

3124 sq ft is a large house…too big for one HVAC system, especially in a one level house.

Two smaller HVAC systems will not only be more energy efficient, they will be quieter, and keep your house more...continued.
