That's because you have two systems. ;) Next time go with one system and zoning will save you on energy costs significantly.
Not at all. I need a blanket at night while my kids sweat.  :)

I want the 5 ton unit, I hope to need it in the future.
Did your contractor run a load calc? 5 tons of cooling is a lot for 2k sqft. Make sure your getting two stage equipment with a modulating blower otherwise your going to run into over-conditioning issues which can balloon into a host of unforeseen problems.

Nope don't think so.
I'll make sure getting the 2 stage equipment, thanks for the info.

So my Cental stopped blowing cold air. Period. It blows warm air and it seems to me that it's not full blast either.

I checked the outside unit and it seems to be working fine.

Any ideas?

(Can it be the thermostat?)

It can be many things. By saying your outside unit is running fine what does that mean, you here it running? If it is running that tells you your thermostat is working. The most common problem is lack of Freon.

So your ruling out the thermostat, correct?

And can I add freon myself?

Pretty sure you need a special license to buy freon (at least here in Nassau, NY)

That sounds like it is freezing over. Is that frost on one of the pipes?

If it is missing refrigerant then that means there is some sort of leak. It is not supposed to come out.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Should just be a service call, no? Any parts needed?
