I have a small one level home that I am looking to add

Customer Question

I have a small one level home that I am looking to add central air to. it is at the most 1400 sq ft and probably closer to 1200 sq ft.
what tonnage air conditioner would I need?
I also received a free unit from a house that was being tore down, I believe it is a yorx but I am not sure of the name or the size.
I am sure that the A-Coil will not fit in my furnace. it is too tall, the basement is short, only about 5-1/2' tall so the top may have been cut down some.
Is there a coil on the market that is low profile that may work in my furnace?
I would like to try to reuse this older unit for our cabin if possible b4 calling and having a new system installed.
size needed?
low profile coil?

Finding the short coil may be difficult. Do you have any pictures of existing situation?
