Question about Carrier Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a Thru-Wall Carrier 18000 btu Air Conditioning Unit Model KCA 183 P. This was installed in our mobile home in August 2007 but never used as there was only 30 amp service. The previous owner has either lost or missplaced the Operator's Manual, and as we have just now upgraded to 60 amp service, would like to use this unit. We can get it to run, but as it is digital we aren't sure what the icons represent, and how we should set it. We would love to be able to get the Operator's Manual for this model. Can you help? Thank you so much. Margery Carriere

Try Googling (carrier)(KCA 183 P)(manual) without parens. 2007 is ancient in the air conditioner world.

SOURCE: how large a room does a 10,000 btu air conditioner cool

What size unit do I need for my room? Use the following chart to find the appropriate size air conditioner to use:

AREA TO BE COOLED / CAPACITY (BTU/HR)

100 to 150 square feet = 5,000

150 to 250 square feet = 6,000

250 to 300 square feet = 7,000

300 to 350 square feet = 8,000

350 to 400 square feet = 9,000

400 to 450 square feet = 10,000

450 to 550 square feet = 12,000

550 to 700 square feet = 14,000

700 to 1000 square feet = 18,000

If the room is heavily shaded, reduce needed capacity by 10%

If the room receives a lot of direct sun, increase needed capacity by 10%

Add 600 Btu/Hr for each person in the room if there are more than two people

If the unit is for a kitchen, increase the capacity by 4,000-6,000 Btu/Hr.

if this helps please vote me a fix ya

SOURCE: air conditioner stopped working

Check the breaker in the panel and the fuses in the disconnect at the outside unit. If that doesn't do it. call a heating and air technician instead of an electrician.

Yes, that might be the problem but in this case you need a qualified technician to test system and find real cause of problem.

You need to take the cover off and you should see some aluminum fins like whats on the outside unit the blower will either blow across them or pull air accross them. Clean them with a wire brush and soapy water if you dont have coil cleaner which can be purchased at hardware stores

How many tons my ton my airconditioning model 38MKS60DS20/01


The Model number contains a 60, probably stands for 60,000 BTU's
12,000 BTU's equals 1 ton of air conditioning. Thus that should be a 5 ton unit.

How many tonnes does this air conditioner have?


First digit after 38CKC_0_ is the seer rating this is a 10 Seer unit.the next two digits are BTU's of cooling to the thousands. For every 12,000 BTU's you have 1 ton of air conditioning.38CKCO_36_ would be a 3 ton unit.
Serial number first two digits are the week the second two are the year24 would be 24th week. 02 would be 2002

How many tons is my unit?


divide your btu rating by 12000. (1 ton = 12000 btu)
For example - a 24,000 BTU Air Conditioner is a 2 ton unit. 24000 divided by 12000 = 2
A 18000 btu air condtioner is a 1 1/2 ton unit 18000 divided by 12000 = 1 1/2
you can find out your btu rating by looking on the tag on your unit.

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

Window or wall mount


The differance between a window and wall mounted A/C is the mounting system.
Window units are usually smaller BTU systems they set in the window, so you do not have to cut a hole in the wall to install it.
For a bedroom say 10 x 10 you can use @ 5000 btu it plugs into a standard 120 volt electric outlet. If the room is bigger then go bigger say @ 6000 btu or so. Take your room dementions with you when shopping for a unit. sometimes they have sizing on the side of the unit box.
Wall units are usually larger units. Like whole house 18,000 btu
they slide in and out of the case and use a 240 volt seperate circuit.
Best place to shop for A/C's are Home Depot, Lowes, Sams Club, B.J.'s, and Cosco they buy in large volumeusually give a Good deal I've seen 5000 btu units as low as $89.00
Just don't drop the unit out the window when installing it
From the second floor it will void your warranty. LOL
Good Luck Phil
