Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

We are having to replace a 17 yr old heat pump a/c system. I have a 2-ton unit and don't like any of my quotes but the more of them I get I wonder if maybe I already have my best quote. Here is what I have: Goodman equipment for $3.8k; Rheme for $3.3k; Weatherking for $3.1k; and the last is a Frigidaire make i think, for $3.6k. I need to save money because i also have to replace a roof NOW. Input please on the different brands and warranties. Are these prices good?

Sheeesh, they know how to charge don't they, but in saying that these quotes all seem to be OK, or at least within ballpark of what one would expect from the differing suppliers.
Rheme for $3.3k This is what I think is about the best of what you detail. They are well made , good support, and are a common one to service.
Goodman equipment for $3.8k Expensive but well made.
Weatherking for $3.1k Not as well made.
Frigidaire $3.6k I don't really like these ones so I am biased.
Whichever one you choose, lock them down, and get a Full Warranty, make sure your installer is a well qualified and has lots of experience in installing and servicing the units, you are dealing with.

    What would be a good full warranty? What could or SHOULD I expect to be able to receive as a warranty?

Brand New 2 weeks old 4 ton Trane compressor leaks a lot of water onto pad


If the unit is running in cold weather than there is ice building up on the coils located outside. This is normal in that the unit is running in heat pump mode heating inside and cooling outside, After the unit detects the ice build up it briefly reverses the cycle heating the outside coils melting(defrosting) the ice which you observe as water on the pad.

The video gives you an example of the defrost cycle!

I have a Carrier Weathermaker model #38tdb060300 A/C system. How many tons is that? It is 11 yrs old, capacitor exploded and compressor is blown. Needing to replace.


Looks like a 5 ton unit. However, you might be better off finding a R-22 condensing unit to replace the entire outside unit. Reason being, if you just replace the compressor, you get a one year warranty. If you replace the whole outside unit, you get a 5 year warranty. You can replace the outside unit with any manufacturer, as long as it is the same tonnage and type (heat pump/air conditioner/single stage/ 2 stage ...).

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!!

We are replacing a 22 year old ruud UACC030/36AHW38 (this is listed as the equipment being removed from our home by one of the companies who has given us a quote). One of the companies is telling us that...


Hi, there are 12,000 btus per ton of cooling. You go by the numbers in the model number. I see you have a 030 which would be a 21/2 ton. I also see a /36a which could stand for a 3 ton, but its the 030 number you want. It is a 2.5 ton unit, no question! 2x12 is 24+6=30,000 btus, a 21/2 ton unit. Hope that cleared it up for you.

Residential HVAC - Repair vs Replace? Heat Pump? Two Stage AC?


for 65 dollars i would replace the coil I do however love gas and heat pump combos it will cut your gas bill by about 75% only uses gas below 30 deg
you may want to try a honeywell 8000 stat it has random circulation fan comes on and just circulates the air also used for gas hp combo with an out door sensor and you don't need the fossil heat kit as for the copper if possible replace it due to don't trust any ones soldering as for units the are all about the same look for warranty some replace unit others have life time comp if only going to be in house for 10 yrs hard to recover cost give replacement allowance when sell
