My landlord installed this brand new out of the box. Our apt is 900 sq ft tops. This unit can't even cool down our living room and kitchen. If the whole 2 bedroom apt is 900 sq ft, you can imagine how...


The AC your landlord installed is rated at 8000 btu which is way too small for 900 sq ft. You need at least a 15000 Btu Air conditioner and a 'well insulated' house to be cool.
A good rule of thumb in the AC business says you need 1 ton (12000 btu) of Air conditioning for every 600 sq feet (if the house is well insulated) - if not - then you will need 1 ton (12000 btu) for every 400 sq feet.
So, if you have 900 sq feet and the house is well insulated you should have at least a 15000 btu unit.
If it's not well insulated you will need 24,000 btu.

How much area can 1hp of this brand can cool


the 'rule of thumb' is 1 ton of AC for every 600 sq feet of a well insulated space (400 sq ft if not well insulated)- for example if the space to be cooled is 1200 sq ft - and is well insulated - you would require a 2 HP unit. 1200 divided by 600 = 2

if the space was not well insulated - you would require a 3 HP unit. 1200 divided by 400 = 3

note; 1 ton of air conditioning - is sometimes referred to as 1 HP or 12000 Btu. Whether you call it 1 HP or 1 Ton or 12000 Btu - they all three mean exactly the same thing.

take this example - 2 tons of air conditioning can also be referred to as 2 HP or 24000 Btu.

fyi - it doesn't matter what 'brand' - they all work off the same principle.

hope this helps

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

4 ton HVAC Unit for 2000 SQ FT Residential Bldg (Single Story)


One ton of cooling per 500 square feet of space assuming you have good insulation. Yes, 4 tons for 2000 feet would be accurate.
