The tonnage is usually found on the name plate on the condensing unit outside. 12000 btu = 1 ton, 24000 = 2 ton and so forth. In your case the unit is 36000 btu, therefore a 3 ton.
I hope this helps!

The coil freezing can be caused by a couple of things. 1) Not enough air flow over the coil or 2) A low refrigerant charge. First make sure that the indoor fan is running. Then check your air filters and make sure your evaporator coil is clean. After that you can get the refrigerant charge checked. The lower the refrigerant pressure is, the lower it's boiling point is and when it gets below 32F then the evaporator coil and usually the low pressure line freeze up. The leaking you were talking about is probably from the ice melting. Hope this helps.

Low on refrigerant charge! Low side line should be cold like a beer can at the inlet of the compressor with some sweat beads around it. 55deg. The discharge should be around 125deg just hot enough you cant hold it long!

Hi, 2,500 ton unit would be the size of a 15,000sq.foot warehouse! I think you mean a 2 1/2 ton Rheem condenser. You could run an add under Craigs list.com, and if the unit is in good shape, I would ask no more then $600 for it. As a Contractor, I can get them anytime new for around $660.00. If you can get $500 for it jump on it. Best of luck to you,
