I'm totally not sure about your situation here, but I'll throw this bit 

I grew up around my father's small HVAC business in Kansas City, and 
one thing I can DEFINATELY say, don't guess with the tonnage- simply 
upping the tonnage is NOT A GUARANTEE you'll be able to control the 
climate, get a professional to take a look at the situation.
