Ok got it that time...no a 2.5 inside will not work with a 3 ton outside.

You can go half size bigger inside..but not out.

Look at the outdoor unit as a bucket of water with 3 gallons....and the indoor a 2.5 gallon bucket.....it will not fit...but if the indoor was 3 or 3.5 it would fit...you just cant have the indoor smaller

No the unit inside is a 3 ton. The unit outside is a 2.5 ton.
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 1 year ago.

sorry...yes....a half ton bigger inside is preferred for efficiency

You will still want the 2.5 flowrater, piston or txv though
