I'm in San Antonio. I think your 3 ton will be good. Maybe a little long in run time on 100plus days, but that's the way theyre spec'd.

If you have it set at 77 and you had your wish of it going on at 79 (or higher) I think you would be most uncomfortable, and 75/78 likewise. I don't know why you don't suspect the new coil. If its...

If it were my place I would install all new insulated flex duct. It's really a minimum std, your losing cool air to the attic before it gets into the rooms. INVEST in new ducts.

Just melting the ice isn't going to fix the problem. I'd say a dirty filter that has buckled so the air can get through is pretty solid evidence. Who knows how long that dirty air has been going...

In S Texas where we design around 98 degrees ambient, we'd probably use a 3.5 ton unless there was something unusual. Phoenix is hotter, so I wouldn't doubt a 4 ton
