I have an Amana Prestige Ultra A/C condensor, model RCE60A2D. How many tons is this A/C unit, how much refrigerant does it hold when it's full, and which type of refrigerant does it use? (By the way, I do NOT have a Ruud UBHC air conditioner, but I'm not allowed to submit this question without picking a unit from a very small list of products offered on this web page!)

Re: What are the specs for my Amana A/C condensor?
The model number indicates that it could be a 5ton unit capable of
doing a house with at least 2000 sq.ft.. If you look on the unit again,
the condensor outside. Their is a nameplate that indicates if it has R22 or R410-A in it. It should also tell you how many pounds aqnd ounces that it holds.
My guess if it is a older unit, more than a couple years old it might
have 5lbs. of R22 in it.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

it is a 3 ton condensor you still can buy r22 freon condensors new but they have nitrogen charge and its expensive to charge I recommend to go with 3 ton goodman condensor which is new 410a puron and also change indoor coil and flush the line set so you dont endure the high cost of new copper lines these new systems come with 10 years warranty and the r22 systems come with only five years
Never unless theree is a problem. You either have something shorting to ground or you are over amping a circut. Amping issues could be a loose electrical connection, over charge is system, or windings in a motor could be going bad. Check to see all your electrical connections are tight first. Then you will need to refer to your units data plate and look for the RLA = rated load amps. Check amps on your line wire to each motor usually the black wire. Fuses pop for a reason not just because they do.
I believe you are asking which furnace to go with?
Just some clarification first.
The "condensor" is the outdoor unit.
A "Compressor" is the device inside the outdoor unit that pumps and "compresses" the refridgerant.
An evaporator is the indoor coil, it has refridgerant running through it.
The furnace is completely seperat from the condensor and evaporator.
I "THINK" you are saying that you are looking to buy an AMANA system with a 5 ton 14 to 16 SEER condensor, and a furnace, but you need suggestions on the furnace.
typically when you purchace a condensor, the evaporator coil is simply matched by the manufacturer to the specific condensor you purchace, there is no choosing to deal with. All condensors ofcourse come with a compressor already installed.
If my assumption about your request is correct, maybe this will help.
Amana's 90+ furnaces are great units. I would recomend them to anyone. The 80+ uses a somewhat inferior heat exchanger, and is ofcourse less efficient.
Anything higher than a 90+ can take quite a while to recoup the costs of the enitial purchace through your efficiency savings.
If it were my home, I would go with the 90+ furnace, and the 16 SEER Condensor/evaporator system. But ultimatly, its up to you, your efficiency standards and your wallets potential.
If you live in a northern state where AC is little needed, I'd go with the 14 SEER AC.
Again, an initial cost verses long term savings issue.
