You need to have a amperage check performed, I believe you have high amperage due to insufficient water flow raising the head pressure and in turn raising the amperage, also check the bleed resistors on the start capacitors, this can cause problems like you are experiencing.

What is the tonnage of a carrier furnace model number 58gp100-2


It can handle five tons, or a 60000 btu ac. Tonnage is a measurment for the ac, 1 ton-12000 btus. The ac dose the cooling. the furnace simply blows the air, so if its a good furnace, and sized right, no need to replace it. Simply add the split system to the existing furnace. If you want the tonnage of the ac size, let me know your homes squarefootage, age, condition. Do NOT include the basement in the sq. ft.

Where can I find the specs for an earlier Goodman heat pump?


You say 2 to 3 years... I'm assuming the unit is older than that. Especially being r22. What about the first 10 years??? Normally you will get 400 to 500 sqft per ton of cooling, but, that depends on heat load calculations. If the unit wasn't big enough you would have had this issue 10 years ago, not when the system kept running low on refrigerant. At first guess I would say a 2 ton unit is not big enough but if it worked fine for 10 years...wuth all that in mind, if it were me, (a seasoned professional) I would spend 1800 to fix my 15 year old r22 unit before I spent $4000 on a new r410a piece of junk. Best Wishes!!

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

Goodman GDT070 furnace pressure swich problem.


Inspect both the intake and exhaust pipes for blockage or debris. Inspect the small tubes that go from your combustion fan to the pressure switch and the tube that goes from the fan to the condensate drain. They all should be clean and dry. Inspect the combustion fan to see if it spins without it scraping on the housing or it may be filled with water or debris. Last, check the air filter and clean or replace.

Carrier furnace


Furnaces do not generate dust. Dust comes from air born polluters, such as near by construction, heavy flow of people, or seasonal. If this problem persists you can check into an air purifier. I am an Ecoquest dealer and can be reached at 504-722-3946.

Furnace is leaking water


This is not a lot to go on.

I assume since you called it a furnace, you have hot air heat and central air conditioning. If so, the only way a furnace/AC unit can generate water is by condensing moisture from the air. This is common to all air conditioning and removes humidity from your home. If so, this water, called condensate, must drain. The condensate is collected at the AC cooling coil that is typically located on top of a vertical upflow furnace or downstream of a horizontal furnace. If the drain is clogged, it will overflow and create a mess in and around the furnace. If this is your problem, cleaning and clearing debris may solve the issue. I suggest starting with the easiest accessable part of the drain path. You may need to open the panels enclosing the AC coil and clean the small pans at the bottom of the coil and clear openings from above that look similar to a laundry tub drain. If you get that far and find rust holes in the pan, repairs are needed. If you have an electric condensate pump that may also be the cuprit and require cleaning. Check and clear all drain lines from the coil connection to the final dicharge - sump pit or outside.

I don't know where you are located, but there is a Goodman distributor in Sacramento, CA. Also in Ontario CA. They are a distributor so they may be able to help you or tell where to find someone who will help. Goodman is also known as GMC or Janitrol.
