Your question is way too vague. To be properly sized a designer would need to know: one or two story home and insulation values. He would need to calculate solar gain, i.e.: sizes and location of windows, exposure to sun and geographic location., cooling degree days, etc.

Absent some really unusual situation with the home...
4Tons is BIG for 1400sf... about twice what you should need.
