Hi, food for though, there are 12,000 BUT's per ton of cooling. Always look at the model number for these numbers, 024, a 2 ton, 030, a 2 1/2 ton, 036, a 3 ton, 042 a 3 1/2 ton and so on. This will help you remember in the future.
Sincerely,

Can a Fujitsu compressor unit be connected to multiple inside evaporator units that have different tonnage ratings. 18,000 BTU compressor and 9,000 & 12,000 BTU evaporator units inside.


call fujitsu engineering division direct and ask them about what is connected and if it works ok
logically as each evaporator has it's own tx valve as long as the compressor is large enough to run all together it should work but get the right information from the fujitsu experts

need more info on condenser itself the model number not coming up but the nomenclature u gave looks to be a 4 ton unit. why I say that is the 48 normally represents the btu's 12000 btu per ton. so 48 represents 48000 btu 4 ton. now this depends on your house 400 square feet per ton is a rule of thumb without doing a proper house inspection. how many windows type of windows all kind of stuff. so 4 ton is roughly good for a 1600 square foot house depending on all kinds of variables. if I can get a full model even if it shows ----00-- something like that I can give you a for sure answer. u may even get an r-22 unit which u can buy only as a dry unit companys still make them but can no longer ship them with r-22 in the they come charged with nitrogen which will save you a few grand on install because you don't have to change the indoor coil to a proper sized 410 a coil or the lineset. be aware of contractors who tell u to keep the indoor coil they will add a expansion valve and flush the lines with r-11 or rx-11 flush u wont get the efficiency or 100 percent working condition of a mix mash system.

What evap coil can be efficiently used with a 10 seer rheem raka-024jaz condenser


Hello, if the outside condenser is 2 ton than the inside evap coil should be 2 ton aswell. There are 12,000 btu's per ton and the number 024 in the model # represents btu's per ton so you have a 2 ton unit.

Hello, some window units do not use a drain tube instead they use the condenser fan blade to scoop the condensate from the bottum of the base pan and splash the condenser coil to keep the condenser cool and also evaporate the condensate. Most of the time you can hear a "swishing sound"

I have A 2 ton split system ac unit in my mobile home. The model number is E2EH-BL5HA. It does'nt cool the house. Can I replace it without having to change my A coil?


I think what you are talking about is replacing your 2 ton condensing unit (outside unit) with something a little larger - which would get you into a 'mismatch situation,' (in regard to your - inside and outside coils). "This" - is often a huge 'can of worms,' especially when a trained professional is not involved.

I must stress that - ''Sizing,' is one of the most critical components of a well working air conditioning system. But, to answer your question I can say - "yes - but rarely."

However, to 'properly' determine this - you will need a qualified serviceperson/mechanical engineer to 'size' your system, i.e. space to be cooled, amount of air flow needed, btu's required, etc etc etc. This information and more -has to be considered, along with 'how well insulated' the house is - as well as other variables to determine exactly what size system you need.

Hope this helps.

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...

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.

A/C Size


This appears to be a 3 ton unit. The number 36 represents 36000 BTU`s. That would be 3 tons.

Carrier air handler tonnage?


That is a fairly large difference. It is usually ok to have the inside evap. coil and blower up to 1 ton larger than the outside condenser. That will make the unit slightly more efficient as well as less likely to freeze up on low airflow situations. It is not recommended to install a new condenser on an old evap coil. There has been a lot of changes to the design of the coils in the last little while. For example a 10 year old 2 ton coil may only have 3 cubic feet of volume but a new 2 ton coil may have 4 cubit feet of volume.

There are many factors that may have infulenced the decision on what size condenser to install. Many of which can only be done by visiting the home and doing alot of work, checking the duct sizing bioth supply and return, inspecting the insulation and windows of the home etc. etc. Most of the time that never gets done. You can blame the contractor for not doing a complete check, but at the same time you can blame the customer because many contractors that are that good loose the job to a cheaper bid that did not no any of the research. It is a catch 22 for everyone involved.

There is ALOT more to sizing equipment that many people think, sadly that also includes many HVAC contractors. Way too many people use "rule of thumbs" or flat out "guess".

Sorry for the rant but your queston can only be answered by a good well educated HVAC contractor visiting your home. That type of a contractor is getting hard to find these days in such a price competetive world.
