If you see any of these numbers that is your tonnage:

018= 1.5 tons
024= 2 tons
030= 2.5 tons
036= 3tons
042= 3.5 tons
048= 4tons
060= 5tons

### 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.

### Trying to find the tonnage of my goodman a/c model number aruf486016ba

Does this happen to be the number on the indoor blower coil. The 4860 would either be set up to handle either 4 or 5 tons. If this is so, you need to look on the outdoor condenser to see whether a 4 or 5 ton condenser was coupled to the unit.

### Does not seem to be sufficient cool for a 1600 sq ft manufactured home coming from the Coleman unit installed. Some vents more air, others less air. Unit runs without stopping ever. Can you give us some...

Hi John, depending on the size, I would need the model number from the outdoor unit if it is a split system, you should have 400 cfm per ton of cooling. If you have a 1600 SQ' home, and a 3 ton unit, 3 x 400 cfm is 1200. It would be to small. There are 12,000 B. T. U.'s of cooling per ton. 2 tons would be 24,000 b t u's. 3 tons would be 36, 000 b.t.u.'s. Also, most contractors put lever dampers in the duct work that can be adjusted. They will put a red flag where the lever is and we can adjust the flow to balance out the house. I don't know where your ducts are, under or above, but with a good light find the crawl space and check it out. Get the model number and call it in to get the tonnage or send it to me and I will tell you. It will have a 024, 030, 036, 042, or, 060 in the number, MODEL number and figure like I told you above, 12,000 per ton. 060 would be a 5 ton. This will let you know if the unit is the right size or not. Please rate me on this and I know you will be kind. Thank you John.

### I HAVE A HEIL 5000 A/C CONDENSING UNIT.\r\nCAN YOU TELL ME WHAT SIZE IT IS (TON)? MODEL # CA5560 VKD2 STYLE # 60MCE-000095ZR SERIAL # L9811 50209MANF # NCA5560 VKD2 I APPRECIATE YOUR HELP. THANK YOU VERY...

Hi,
It looks like you have a 60,000 BTU unit or a 5 ton unit...12,000 BTU/ton is how you figure that...
The 60 in the model number indicates the nominal btu's of the unit... the exact output could be a bit more or less depending on the air handler...

### Heil Heat pump model # NHP218AKC2, I need the specs to replace an old unit in the other side of my duplex

I can help you on part of your question, the system that you listed above is a 1.5 ton unit, if I had the serial number I could give you the age of the unit. If it is a late 1990 model, then it is probably a 10 SEER unit, maybe a 12 SEER, if it is older than 1994 it will be a 8 to 10 SEER, but due to new federal rules, all new heat pump or air conditioners are at least 13 SEER. If you just replace the outdoor unit and leave the coil indoors, it will be mismatched and cause the unit to be less effeciant, and some problem in adjusting the Freon levels.
Ideal is to change the outdoor unit and indoor coil.
I hope this helps, I am new to this site, so I am still trying to get to the point, and yet give you the details that you need.
Sincerely,
Paul Gibson

### Need to know unit size

ckl60 5 ton about a 2003 model on most ac heat pumps the model number reflects the ton sized by 12000 btus per ton also as for the indoor unit cfm rating 400 cfm per ton

### 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.
