I will have to agree with steve.
What I was taught many years ago is you need
1 ton of cooling power(12,000BTU) for every 400 sq.ft. In a normal dwelling with R4 in the walls R6 in the ceilings.Since you said itwas a
ranch style house I am assumming you have more than normal amount of windows,FL. room etc.If it is 25k hang it up,If it is 2500 try dark tinting some windows,make sure area around condensing unit is free to breath,another thing is your thermostat should be located in close proximity to your return air grill,ck your filter,If you can get to the duct ck it for leaks.GOOD LUCK
eMail me with any ?s
