Need the tons for my unit. its really old and i cant read it on the side i have the model number it is 50ym042310 and it is a 230 volt unit. i know its a carrier because i amable to still see the brand...


The number you are referring to as your 'model number' is a number I don't recognize; maybe it's the SN or something - I don't know.
But that other number - "38CKC042" -------'is' --- your model number and the size of your AC is 42,000 Btu or 3.5 tons.

We have a central air unit that is serial number BTR736B100A0 and model number 314127T18. I need to know the size of the unit. What square footage of house is this for?


This is a 3 ton unit. I go tthat from the 36 in your serial number. 36 means 36,000 btu's which equals 3 tons which cools a home 1,500 square feet to 1,700. If this help please rate me and do a testimonial.

Need to know how many tons this AC unit is


To find out the tonnage, I would need to see the model number. If you can go to the out door unit and write down the number or look for this in the numbers and letters. There are 12,000 btu's per ton of cooling. I don't know if you have a central unit or a window unit, but look for numbers like this. 018, is a 11/2 ton, 024 a 2 ton, 030 a 21/2 ton, 036 a 3 ton, 042 a 31/2 ton, 048, a 4 ton, they don't make a 41/2 ton, and it go's to 060 a 5 ton. This is the largest for a residential that is made. From there they make units for commercial buildings that start at 71/2 tons up to 350 ton's on 10,000' warehouses for wine storage and so on. This is larger then a train box car. You may want to write this down and keep it as most people have no idea how to tell, and now you do. Please don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind. Let me know if you need my help for any thing.

030= 2.5 tons
036= 3tons
042= 3.5 tons
048= 4tons
060= 5tons

Can I mix brands/tons when installing AC unit to existing coils?


First off - the 'rule of thumb' is 600' per ton of Air Conditioning. In other words your old unit is a 2 ton unit. So - 2 tons x 600' = 1200'. As you can see if you install the 2.5 ton unit - you will be installing a AC that 'could' cool a 1500 sq ft house (2.5 x 600' =1500 sq ft.). Slightly more than what you need; and the 3.5 ton unit is 'way to big,' (3.5 x 600' = 2100 sq ft.).

Note: fyi - many in the AC business will sometimes refer to tonnage in btu's, i.e. 1 ton = 12000 btu - hence a '2 ton unit' can also be referred to as a 24000 btu unit and vice versa.

So... from the above - you can easily see that "2 tons" of Air conditioning is what is required to cool the 'average' home of 1100 sq ft. "roughly speaking."

Note: it is always best to have a professional 'size' your cooling/heating needs.

One of your questions was could you 'mix tonnage?'

The answer is 'usually you don't mix the tonnage of your outside/inside units.' However, professionals sometimes do (mix the tonnage) in certain situations, and installing a 2.5 ton outside unit with an existing 2 ton inside unit is often done, however, there are some 'tech issues' here and - I would "again" recommend that you call a Service Tech to help you with the sizing/mixing of your cooling/heating needs.

hope this has helped

What is the size of my GE AC unit Model BGTA848RIA


according to the numbers given here you have a 4 ton a/c. Tons are measured in sections of 12. If the model has 12 in it then it is a one ton if it has 24 in the model number it's a 2 ton a 2 1/2 ton would have a 30 in the model number and so on so since the model number you have here shows it as being a 4 ton unit. Hope this helps

Can a Carrier 38CKB030300 be replaced with a Trane XE1000 if both are 2½ tons? 'The Carrier unit is older and I'm not sure how much life is left on it. The Trane is newer and claims to be energy...


the tons is the power of the unit, so sure. if you were happy with the power of your old unit, get the same. if you felt it was never strong enough to cool your house, get the next size up. newer units have the same power, but use less energy.
