How big does my AC need to be?

I have several quotes on my AC system and they are offering a 3 or a 4 ton. My house is 1550 square feet with a normal amount of windows. I would think bigger is better but I’m sure there must be a reason not to go to big or they wouldn’t make smaller ones. I don’t know anything about this stuff so any insight would be much appreciated.
