Hello all, I'm currently going to school for hvac/r its gotten me curious about mine. I want to know the tonnage on my unit to see if that is one of the causes of the massive heat inside the house (other than the hear outside. In Ms. Were lucky to get below 95 )

I think it a 2ton 24,000 btu... what size do you need ...have a load calulation been done ... have it been serviced to see if its running right.....:yes:

Acomfort 08-09-2012 06:52 PM

In the model number there will always be a variation of 12, being 12,000 btus of cooling.. ie: 1.5 ton would be 18, 2 ton 24 and so on

Thank you. Got in an argument over it with my landlord. Its a constant 78-80 inside the house. I don't expect it to get down passed even 75 maybe but two or three degrees makes a huge difference. My house is somewhere along the line of 1250 sq. Ft i believe. As I said I'm a student learning it and I was told it should be roughly a ton per 400 sq. Ft

I'm in canada, so we don't need quite that much, but I think in the states there you guys are roughly 500 per ton

turnermech 08-09-2012 07:25 PM

square footage to tons is realy just a EWAG better than a WAG but not that much. But it is 500 to 600 sq ft per ton around here.

darkened08 08-09-2012 07:33 PM

So is what I have the right size? Maybe half a ton bigger but thatd be a lot of money for a little change.

turnermech 08-09-2012 07:36 PM

the first thing would be to see if the unit is operating corectly. refrigerant charge, duct work leak, dirty condenser coil ect..

darkened08 08-09-2012 07:39 PM

I'm pretty sure there's some duct work needed. Near thr back of he house where the closet is is fairly cool but in the front of the house its like the air isn't even on. There's at least a four or five degree difference just walking down the hall

Acomfort 08-09-2012 07:42 PM

simplest fix is to check your filter

darkened08 08-09-2012 07:48 PM

We've just changed it maybe a week or two ago in hopes that fix it.
