5-ton condenser on a 4-ton system question

3882 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  beenthere
I have a 4-ton Lennox system. The condenser unit needs replaced but all else is good. Does anybody see any issues with using a 5-ton Goodman condenser with the existing 4-ton system? I am just looking at getting the house cooled for one or two more seasons until I can replace entire system with something newer.

Doubtful your moving 400CFM per ton for you 4 ton unit.

So, you'll have low airflow for a 5 ton.
Probably end up freezing up the indoor unit. And wiping out the compressor of the 5 ton.
