I currently looking for an A/C an was offered one from a friend. It is a Lennox Elite Series: XC13 2Tons 24,000 BTUh 15.5seer according to a lennox brochure i found online. My question is is this unit big enough to cool a block house in south florida aprox 1500sqft with 11 windows.

Thanks in advance for the help and i hope this is the right place to ask help on questions like this.

In order to determine correct size you need to have an hvac company do a manual j assesment on your home.

The XC is a 13 SEER model. With a VS blower, it might get more.
