Question about Goodman CKL36AR36 Air Conditioner

1 Answer

How many tons is my CKL 36-1K air condition? The data plate was removed by someone over time and my house doesn't seem to cool efficiently so I thought maybe the unit wasn't big enough, my house is 1564 sqft.

How to Keep House Cool Without Using Air Conditioning


The expense of running the air conditioner is just too much. You open the house doors and windows up to try to cool the house down. But the house just seems to get hotter. Maybe you are going about it all wrong.

Here is a way for many people to have their houses cooler without running the air conditioner at all. Now I live in an area of the United States that has many cool nights even in the summer time. And I have found that this works very well for me. This will not work for everyone in every climate all the time but for a great many people at certain times of the year and under the right conditions they can save a ton of money with a minimal amount of effort and fore thought.

The trick to this is to cool your house off at night and then trap the cool air in the house during the daytime. When the sun goes down and it starts to cool off outside, open up all the windows and the doors too if that is practical where you live. Let them open all night long, even if the temperatures get rather cool over night. The idea is to get the house to cool down as much as possible.

Hopefully by morning your house is very nice and cool. Now before the sun has time to warm the air temperatures close your house up as tight as if it were wintertime. Try to limit the traffic in and out of the doors if possible. The idea now is to conserve the trapped cool air inside of the house. By doing this you will have a nice cool house all day long until evening when you do it all over again.

The best thing about this process is that is does not cost you anything. A bit of time spent opening and shutting doors and windows could save you a bundle on your electric bill. The process seems like it would not work that well but once you try it and see the results you will love the savings!

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. The answer to your question is 3.5 tons. The 42 represents 42,000 btu and you divide that by 12,000 wich is equal to one ton of cooling and you get 3.5 tons.

Compressor size


Square footage is how you determine what size of an AC you need, say two bedroom house with 1500 square feet would require a 3 ton unit but I would go to a 4 or 5 ton depending on brand and what you may do in the future, Like adding a bedroom or bathroom and how many people will be living in the house, a heat pump normally last longer the bigger it is and is more efficient than a smaller size. Just think like this, a 3 ton will run 30 minutes to an hour longer to cool the same space as a 5 ton so if the five ton does it 30 minutes faster it will not run as long. And when it has to pull down the temperature again it will do it much faster. So less run time means faster heat or cooling and less energy is used. I have found that the bigger units are made better and last longer as a general rule. And to understand the 3-ton and 5 ton let me say that it means how long it takes 3 tons of ice to bring the temperature down 10 degrees, the old BTU’s British thermal units. However the bigger the unit the more well built it is normally and the less maintenance required. 5 tons of ice would get it cooler faster. But one thing to keep in mind a heat pump is only good for 20 degrees temperature range, for instance if the high range is 80 then the low side would be 60 in order for it to be efficient so if you have it set in the house at 72 degrees on the high side and low side would be 52 degrees. But the larger the unit the less time it would take it to recover from the heat differential.

AC not cooling during the day


Your AC cooling efficiency is low when he ambient temperature is high and naturally it cools well when the outside temperature drops.

Please remove the filter on the grill and try to clean it under the tap water and after removing all the dust fix it back to the unit. This would increase the cooling efficiency of the unit.

Your AC is also five years old. Please avoid frequent opening of doors or windows.

Ensure that the exhaust fan and the blower of your unit are functioning normal.

The technician might not have done a proper job in fixing the area where the refrigerant would have leaked out. Please check the refrigerant pressure to ensure that no further refrigerant leak has taken place. Or even servicing your unit he would have punchered the tubes resulting in very slow leak of refrigerant resulting in no cooling or less cooling. It takes around a month to feel the pinch of it and the refrigerant. One fine morning after sometime the unit will run and it would start throwing hot air instead of cool breeze!
