### What ton is a carrier model 38groo4310

This is probably the 38GR-004-310. If that is the correct model number, the unit is rated as a 3 Ton compressor.

I hope this helps.

### Can you translate the model number please

I cant tell you the date it was made, only from the serial number. But the 036 tells me it is a 3 ton unit. There is 12,00 btu per ton of cooling, so on your carrier, 3x12=36, which will be the 036. That's about all I can give you on the number.

### What ton is this carrier condenser unit

Over here in my neck of the woods an apartment one bedroom would have a 1.5 ton unit, a 2 bedroom house 2 to 2.5 tons a 3 or 4 bedroom home would be a 3 ton or 3.5 ton. Without numbers no one can tell exactly what you have there. Figured i could give you an idea. If you have 8 foot walls go by a ton for each bed room in the house.

### I am trying to replace my old bryant heat pump with a new bryant heat pump, but I am having a difficult time figuring out the tonage. Can you tell me if I have the model number?

fyi if the model number has for example 373036 373042 373048
the o and number after it usually is the btu value...
12000 btu's = 1 ton so a 036 would be a 3 ton 042 3 1/2 060 would be a 5 ton
post the number someone will help you out... another way to find out
a number for ft. worth location is 817-834-4496 good luck to you
