I know this thread is a little old but I thought the question has still been left unanswered. Tonnage is assumed. But, CFM and BTUs are exact.
If anybody wants to know the true size of their a/c or heating system you need to go where the engineers go.
http://www.ahrinet.org/Home.aspx

Consumers and contractors need to rethink their thinking when it comes to whole house heating and cooling... (Im from a hot humid area in the USA) Hot dry areas have other needs I won't.
ie... an air conditioner is no longer BTU's in a box. They have evolved into computers. computers that drive the blower motors, the expansion valves, the thermostat/controller can tell you the sub cooling, superheat, and the delta-t. Some tell you if the duct work is incorrect, static pressure against the blower. They are also not as forgiving if installed incorrectly.
Our industry is just catching on, but the consumer is untrustworthy when it comes to duct work and static pressure.
And in our high humidity market having high airflow with low static pressures removes far more humidity then a duct system installed over 10 years ago, Also, most homes lack proper return grille sizes, when the homeowner's desires are to put MERV 16 filters.
Here is a very useful link for duct and grille sizing.

Carry on my friends,

P.S. a neat little read,

SOURCE: Carrier air handler tonnage?

That is a fairly large difference. It is usually ok to have the inside evap. coil and blower up to 1 ton larger than the outside condenser. That will make the unit slightly more efficient as well as less likely to freeze up on low airflow situations. It is not recommended to install a new condenser on an old evap coil. There has been a lot of changes to the design of the coils in the last little while. For example a 10 year old 2 ton coil may only have 3 cubic feet of volume but a new 2 ton coil may have 4 cubit feet of volume.

There are many factors that may have infulenced the decision on what size condenser to install. Many of which can only be done by visiting the home and doing alot of work, checking the duct sizing bioth supply and return, inspecting the insulation and windows of the home etc. etc. Most of the time that never gets done. You can blame the contractor for not doing a complete check, but at the same time you can blame the customer because many contractors that are that good loose the job to a cheaper bid that did not no any of the research. It is a catch 22 for everyone involved.

There is ALOT more to sizing equipment that many people think, sadly that also includes many HVAC contractors. Way too many people use "rule of thumbs" or flat out "guess".

Sorry for the rant but your queston can only be answered by a good well educated HVAC contractor visiting your home. That type of a contractor is getting hard to find these days in such a price competetive world.

What is the tonnage on 48TME007-501


My guess is 4 tons. The 48 at the beginning of the model number could mean 48000 btus and with 12000 btus per ton that would mean 4 tons. Without a product name that's as good a guess as I can give. Good luck and hope this helps.

What is the tonnage on an Intertherm S3RC-0336K.


Hello, the tonnage on this unit is a 3 ton unit. Your model number tells you. The 036 is the tonnage. There are 12,000 btu's per ton, so 36 divided by 3 =12 or in this case 12,000 btu's.
Sincerely,

I JUST NEED TO KNOW WHAT MY TONNAGE IS.


Look for your model number on your condensor, outdoor unit. Your tonnage will be towards the end of it and divisable by 6. I.E. 36=3tons or 42=3.5tons. Ac units are messured by the half ton. If you have a split system I.E. heater inside and ac outside your system will be 1 - 5 tons. If this doesn't help post your model and serial number. I can then give you tonnage, age, so forth.

Hi there I have a model number for my carrier a/c unit. I need to find out the tonnage. 38ykc042300 Please any help I will be very greatful.


This is a 3 and 1/2 ton unit.
The 042 in the model number is the tonnage of your carrier unit.
AC tonnage is based on 12,000 btu per ton.
12,000.....1 ton
18,000.....1 and 1/2 ton
24,000.....2 ton
30,000.....2 and 1/2 ton
36,000.....3 ton
42,000.....3 and 1/2 ton
48,000.....4 ton
60,000.....5 ton.
There is no 4 and 1/2 ton unit.

Need to find tonnage of a Luxaire A/c unit serial # ECBM079879...


Get Model number of compressor (all compressors have a tag with a model number on them), and call a dealer who can tell you the tonnage of the compressor which will be the same as the unit.

Note: Write down all the numbers on the compressor to be sure you have the proper info that the dealer will need. Also, you can probably do a 'search' on the computer with the model number of the compressor to find the tonnage.

good luck!

024=24,000 BTU=2ton
030=30,000 BTU=2 1/2ton
036=36,000 BTU= 3ton

I dont think you have the correct Model Number, Look
on the outdoor unit, the model number might start with a 38. Hint Carrier and Bryant Products are the Same, just different nametag

What ton is good man ckl 49 il where is the model number onthe furnace


ok ready for this? To find the tonnage look at the serial # Tonnage is related to 12's If there, on the serial # there is say 0062490 the tonnage is 24 or two tons 24 divided by 12 equals 2 Say the serial # contains 0063090 then the tonnage is 2 1/2 because of the 30 hopefully you see what I am saying the number in the serial # if it can be divided by 12 or 6 this is the tonnage. If you will send me the serial number I will tell you the tonnage. The serial number is on the outside unit at the copper connections where the electrical lines go in.

Good luck on your repairs hope this helped send me a note online here and if you need I will give you tonnage if you send the model # and serial number with your response> I will check online around 1500 hours on 1/9/10 central time. Remember to look for the numbers that are divisible by either 12 or 6 on the serial number

Need to verify tonnage of unit


In almost every case, most manufacturers put the tonnage in the model number. Look for something that is divisible by either 6 or 12. Something like, 24, 30, 36, and so on. Cfm has to match the tonnage. Usually in the neighborhood of 450 cfm per 12,000 btu's of cooling for the inside of the structure.

Hope this helps.
