here the links to two pretty good calculators:



The key to getting a relatively accurate number is knowing the SEER as well as the size, relative utility cost, and relative number of cooling hours.

To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.  To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
