Yes, it is a 2ton unit and no, it's definitely not big enough. You need 1 cfm per square foot. That's 2000 cfm. 1 ton of air is equal to 400cfm. So you would actually need around a 5 ton unit to comfortably do a 2000sq ft building. Insulation, doors, windows, and other sources of heat load all factor in, but this is the standard formula. Hope this helps!

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!!

I just had 'goodman gpc1336h41ab' 13.00 seer unit installed , I have a 1250 sq. ft. home and it just doesnt seem to be cooling. The unit runs constantly. So my question is , is my unit big enough...


There are a few variables that determine the size needed to cool your home - the size of your home, type insulation, are just two. I have a 2600 sq ft home - about 1300 sq ft per floor. I choose to cool the entire second floor (bedrooms and baths) and two of the largest rooms on the first floor (kitchen & living room) via flexible ducts from an air handler installed in my attic. My house was built in 1960, and at the time had electric heat. This means it is fully insulated. I replaced all the windows with energy efficient types, and vinyl sided. I installed soffit, ridge and gable vents to keep my attic well ventilated. I can cool my house in Boston, MA to 70 degrees (when it is 85 degrees inside) with a 4 ton unit in a little over an hour with no problem (one ton of cooling is equal to about 12,000 BTUs). Your condenser should not run non-stop. If it is not cooling then it is not a thermostat problem, but could be a gas charge problem. If you haven't paid the contractor in full yet - that may be the reason why. The contractor should know how much cooling you need for the space you have and installed a properly sized unit. Make sure your air filters on the return are clean and replaced regularly. Call the contractor and explain the problem - he should be able to solve it for you very quickly.

What is the capacity on my Rheem Classic High Efficiency Outdoor a/c unit. I have a home that is 3200sqf. It seems to be on some type of a damper system... Is this unit big enough for my home?


depending who you talk to a ton will cover about 500 sq ft (as some say 400 sq ft others say 600 sq ft). I believe your unit is a 3 1/2 ton unit. Below is a chart
0sf-750 sf= 1.5 ton
751-1000sf= 2.0 ton
100sf1-1250sf=2.5 ton
1251sf-1500sf=3.0 ton
1501sf-1750sf=3.5 ton
1751sf-2000sf=4.0 ton
2001sf-2500sf=5.0 ton
I would say if you have two units then you are covered, remember the area(region) walls, ceiling and other climate factors will play into your tonnage for you house. The best thing is to consult with a honest and reliable a/c installer in your area. i hope this helped Tim

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.

Keepe shutting down the heat.


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.
