My self, I use the tried and try Bacarach volometer along with Delta T measurments.
I got a few of my own rules of thumb I have used over the years. Im sure I will let some slip out here and there. I know I know sometimes paybacks are a b****.
Lets see here one. Stand on the curb across the street from the house you want to install A/C in. Then hold your hand out 2 feet in front of your nose then start holding up 1 finger at a time untill the house is covered. 1 2 3 4 The house needs a 4 ton A/C. NOT!

There is a service bulletin on that sizing technique. seems it's been recalled for recalibration cause it was designed by a guy with only four fingers.

Uneven Heat


Minor update:

Turned out the 2 returns on the 1st floor were already sealed so I removed the cardboard/duct tape 'sealing' and I'm getting some more velocity from the vents.

I also recaulked the front double window in the living room, the master bath window and 1 master bedroom window. I'll have time to get to the second window tonight. Also weathersealed the electric box in the master bath with that DAP vinyl foam stuff since it was on an outside wall.

Temp is now more stable but still colder than the south side.

And man, caulking the top of a window is hard when you're barely 5'5 and have nothing to stand on.
