My house currently has a 2 ton unit from 1989. The air handler uses heating strips to heat the house I was told; it used to use solar panels and they were removed. The HVAC tech told me the condenser is leaking and this condensing unit cannot be fixed. I can't replace it with a new unit right now so I was going to buy a used 3-1/2 ton Bryant unit that is 7 years old and uses 410a. The unit comes with a matching coil. Will the coil fit on my current air handler if I get this unit? My HVAC tech is stuck on selling me a new unit, but he told me that he'll install a used one if I get one. I left a message about the coil, but he hasn't got back to me yet and I was trying to decide whether or not to go pick this unit up?
Whats the model number of your air handler?
It probably won't move enough air for a 3.5 ton unit.
Next. You will probably need to set your thermostat 10 or 12 degrees lower to feel as comfortable. Since it won't run long enough to remove enough moisture from the air. To keep the humidity low enough.
