A coil installation


Doesn't matter if its 2 days, 2 hours, or 2 months.
If the blower can't move enough air, it will freeze the coil, and most likely harm the compressor.

They probably make an upgraded blower for A/C.

What brand is the furnace.

A coil installation


The furnace is made by intertherm. I'm not sure if the blower is original but it is very strong, loued and moves a lot of air around the house.

I'm actually entertaining another idea. I've found a complete used unit on craigslist that was removed from a remodeled home. The system is much newer and the price is reasonable. Will it make it sense to pursue this avenue? what type of questions and information should I ask and gather? Thanks.

Here is some background info
mobile home is single wide 14x6x (~1060 sqft)

Mobile homes are design certified for a specific brand and model furnace. For a newer mobile home choosing a replacement furnace is not a problem as many diff brands now use standardize units. Not so with mobile homes of thirty years.

You would be better off buying a heat and cool pkg unit instead.

You would need to know the size of your unit, and teh one you looked at.
And also need to know if it has an A/C blower or not.

A package unit, may be a much better way to go.
