Is a 2 ton unit appropriate for a 1400 sq ft house

I am interested in a new central air system for a 1400 sq ft home. Would a 2 ton unit be appropriate ?

It's in the range, but there are variables that still need to be considered. Is the home one or two stories? Where do you live (warmer or colder area)? What is the R value of your insulation? Do you need two zones? Do you have a basement? What is your desired cooling temp? And so on.

So while this is a good estimate it is far from precise.

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.
