Anon,
CALCULATE CUBIC FEET PER METRIC TON TO CUBIC METERS PER METRIC TON

Hello. That's a little tricky. I had 10 yards delivered years ago and I figured that I filled my wheelbarrow about 15 times for each yard. Keep in mind that usually 10 - 12 loads of soil is about 1 cubic yard, but obviously lighter and easier to push. So,...count on about 160 -180 lbs per load times 15 loads per yard equals 2400 - 2700 pounds. Times that, times 20 yards, and you have 48000 - 54000 pounds, or about 24 - 27 tons. Now, you have to think about all that dirt on the rocks which I don't think will add too much weight unless it's being dug out of clay then you might want to add a few hundred pounds per ton.

Hello, if the outside condenser is 2 ton than the inside evap coil should be 2 ton aswell. There are 12,000 btu's per ton and the number 024 in the model # represents btu's per ton so you have a 2 ton unit.

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.

Hi John, depending on the size, I would need the model number from the outdoor unit if it is a split system, you should have 400 cfm per ton of cooling. If you have a 1600 SQ' home, and a 3 ton unit, 3 x 400 cfm is 1200. It would be to small. There are 12,000 B. T. U.'s of cooling per ton. 2 tons would be 24,000 b t u's. 3 tons would be 36, 000 b.t.u.'s. Also, most contractors put lever dampers in the duct work that can be adjusted. They will put a red flag where the lever is and we can adjust the flow to balance out the house. I don't know where your ducts are, under or above, but with a good light find the crawl space and check it out. Get the model number and call it in to get the tonnage or send it to me and I will tell you. It will have a 024, 030, 036, 042, or, 060 in the number, MODEL number and figure like I told you above, 12,000 per ton. 060 would be a 5 ton. This will let you know if the unit is the right size or not. Please rate me on this and I know you will be kind. Thank you John.

I would say by your model number you have a 2 1/2 ton unit. The 30 represents tonnage. 12,000 btu's per ton, so 30 divided by 12 goes 2.5 times.36 would be 3 tons, 36 31/2 tons and so on.

ckl60 5 ton about a 2003 model on most ac heat pumps the model number reflects the ton sized by 12000 btus per ton also as for the indoor unit cfm rating 400 cfm per ton

Mark is right 5 tons is way too big and you are probably icing up. Even here in Az we size units to no less than 500 sq. ft. per ton and more like 700 sq. ft. per ton. What is the make and model number of your unit? I'm a Goodman Authorized Contractor so I should have most info on hand.
