Size of Heat Pump


I live in Florida and need to purchase a new heat pump -- total package with air handler. My home is one level with 2500 square feet. What size should I purchase -- is 5 ton the size.

Secondly, are most heat pumps manufactured in China. If so does it really make any difference which name you purchase.

Thanks so much for taking time to respond.

A load calc is the only true way to size equipment, especially in a humid place like Florida.
You can try your own here.

What size is in there now? Not saying it is the correct one, but how did it cool you in the extreme Florida summers? Perfect/just OK/Poorly? any hot or cold spots in the house? Did it struggle during the summer?

The correct way is to have a manual j done on your home. You will be told here and it is true, that if you oversize, the ac will not remove the humidity correctly.
