I'm in the process of changing out my furnace and have gotten a few
quotes but here's an interesting question.

evap coil is almost a 2:1 ratio ; plus I'm guessing you would need a 4t
blower as well right?
When I first found out that the highest SEER ratings always occurred
on UNMATCHED indoor/outdoor coils, I also asked myself the same
Fortunately, you don't have to wonder. Just check out the
literature on the products and it will give you the seer for the
different matches. You are right in some cases as the SEER on a 3 ton
outside unit with a 5 ton coil is less than with a 4 ton coil.
Obviously, other factors than the size of indoor coils determine
