SOURCE: trying to get info (tonnage

This is a 4 ton model condensing unit. You can go up 1/2 ton for the evaporator, meaning a 4 1/2 (A) coil will work just fine and allow a bit more cooling capacity.

### Does the outside compressor tonnage need to be the same tonnage as the airhandler?

when the outside and inside units are both the same size it's referred to as a 'matched' system, which is what 99 percent of all units are.
There are instances when the outside unit is bigger/smaller than the inside unit but as a rule you want the outside and inside units to be the same tonnage.

### I JUST NEED TO KNOW WHAT MY TONNAGE IS.

Look for your model number on your condensor, outdoor unit. Your tonnage will be towards the end of it and divisable by 6. I.E. 36=3tons or 42=3.5tons. Ac units are messured by the half ton. If you have a split system I.E. heater inside and ac outside your system will be 1 - 5 tons. If this doesn't help post your model and serial number. I can then give you tonnage, age, so forth.

### What is the seer rating and tonnage of a bryant model fb4anf030

The Tonnage appears to be 2 1/2 ton,
024=24,000 BTU=2ton
030=30,000 BTU=2 1/2ton
036=36,000 BTU= 3ton

I dont think you have the correct Model Number, Look
on the outdoor unit, the model number might start with a 38. Hint Carrier and Bryant Products are the Same, just different nametag

### Can you replace older inside unit with newer one and use older condensing unit?

Hi, yes you can. The indoor unit has to match the outdoor as both coils have to be the same tonnage. You can also replace the outdoor unit with a new one to if it fails.By the 24 you have in the number you have shown me, you have a 2 ton unit, so will need a 2-ton indoor unit. You can't do this your self as you have freon lines that connect the two, but it would not take long to change it out. I do this on a day to day basis.Best of Luck,

### Just had the haier 4 ton 13 seer outside unit installed. my inside unit is a payne and still in good condition.had a 4 ton 10 seer outside unit previously. my problem is the unit froze up the first night...

Your problem is that your 13 seer outdoor unit is not compatible with your 10 seer indoor unit, even though the tonnage is the same. The metering device on 13 seer indoor units is different. Most 10 seer indoor units do not have an expansion valve. When you change from a 10 seer outdoor unit to a 13 seer outdoor unit, you must, at the very least, change the from a fixed-orfice metering device to an expansion valve.

### Tonnage of unit

Listed at Carrier at 2,330 Kilos so math says 2,330 X 2.2 = 5,126 lbs or about 2.5 tons though they listed it as a 3.5 ton max back when they sold this model.

### Need to verify tonnage of unit

In almost every case, most manufacturers put the tonnage in the model number. Look for something that is divisible by either 6 or 12. Something like, 24, 30, 36, and so on. Cfm has to match the tonnage. Usually in the neighborhood of 450 cfm per 12,000 btu's of cooling for the inside of the structure.

Hope this helps.

### Btu's

That air handler can accamodate different size coils. Look for the coil model number. Also you can look at the outdoor unit model number they should be matched up. There is generally a set of 2-3 numbers in the model numbers that will tell you. xxx036xxx is 36,000 btu. tonnage is 12,000 btu per ton so 36,000 btu's would be 3 tons. xxx040xxx= 40,000btu's or 3.5 tons etc.
