Depending who you talk to a ton will cover about 500 sq ft (as some say 400 sq ft others say 600 sq ft). I believe your unit is a 3 1/2 ton unit. Below is a chart
0sf-750 sf= 1.5 ton
751-1000sf= 2.0 ton
100sf1-1250sf=2.5 ton
1251sf-1500sf=3.0 ton
1501sf-1750sf=3.5 ton
1751sf-2000sf=4.0 ton
2001sf-2500sf=5.0 ton
I would say if you have two units then you are covered, remember the area(region) walls, ceiling and other climate factors will play into your tonnage for you house. The best thing is to consult with a honest and reliable a/c installer in your area. i hope this helped Tim

My Amana AAC101SRA doesn't cool like it used to. We have cleaned the filter, but that doesn't seem to help. Should we call a repairman or think about getting another unit?


Is the outdoor coil blocked? Is the outdoor coil clean? Is the compressor running when you start unit. When you turn unit off after running it can you hear a hissing sound from within?

MODEL NO. RTGL 74XN\r\nNOT WORKING SAYING CODE [C211]


Before calling service technician, open following links for Rheem troubleshooting resources:
C2 11 is no ignition:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/ErrorcodeTroubleshooting.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

Tankless water heater should have yearly maintenance that includes cleaning burner parts, with check of ignition parts, wiring, ignition sequence, gas supply, and bleed gas line if needed.
Chances are that your unit needs to catch up on maintenance.
Maintenance can also catch any condensation problems and make venting adjustments so parts are not degraded due to vent issues.
Tankless should also be delimed each year to preserve efficiency of heat exchanger.

Where do I find the reset button for the RHEEM 13 seer


If it is a condenser or outdoor unit heatpump you will have to take the cover off of the compressor section. There should be a high pressure reset that may be a manual reset located on the smaller copper line that leads to the compressor. If it is not here, some Rheem units locate the high pressure switch on the outside of the unit near the copper lines are welded to the unit. It will be just a button to push in.

I have some heat, burners on, is there a way to get more heat air filters clean i dont know what to do


If you are using a pleated or high efficiency type filter, that is a problem, the high efficiency filters
actually restrict a great deal of airflow, a AC unit requires 500 cubic ft per minute of airflow per ton of refrigeration capacity, 500 sq ft of home per ton generally = 1500 sq ft home has a 3 ton unit or needs 1,500 cfm of airflow, both in heat and cool modes, Honeywelll Enalysises prove these filters even when new reduce up to 500 cfm of airflow, effectively making a 3 ton system a 2 ton in output due to airflow restriction, try removing that filter with the fan on, it likely is pulled in sold with a huge pressure drop caused by tj filters obstuctive flow capabilities.
And 755 of all A evaoprator coils have been plugged or restricted by dust , dirt, oils from cooking, cigarrettes, running with no filter etc, a chemical cleaning of the evap coil above the firnace, or brlow it is indicated as a possible issue. Use the cheap 99 cent seee through filters we used to use

What is the minimum GPM's for a Rheem tanklers water heater to work? I can only run the shower by itself. Also can I install an outdoor tankless Rheem in an area where it gets down to -10 degrees F ?...


Rheem makes a number of tankless models
http://www.rheem.com/products/tankless_water_heaters/

They make a tankless 95 outdoor series
http://www.rheem.com/product.aspx?id=EBA80FAA-3C0F-411D-AF83-82061C28ED1B

The 95 outdoor series spec sheet says .4 GPM minimum activation and .26 GPM flow to keep burner activated. The colder the incoming water, fewer users can take a shower at once.
http://globalimageserver.com/fetchDocument.aspx?id=ea5f0816-dfd4-4bcf-a605-79945619f5bb
The .4 GPM and .26GPM numbers are fairly typical for tankless units.
These numbers are good when the unit is new.
After a few years the number may be different because the tankless is a high-tech machine with sensors that are susceptible to particulate in the water, and susceptible to perfect-functioning of other parts in the machine.
The outdoor series spec sheet says the tankless is good to minus 30 F.
But remember that's when the unit is new.
Outdoor tankless water heaters have an electric heater that keeps water pipes inside the unit from freezing, as long as electricity is ON.
If electricity goes off, the house stays warm inside for several hours.
But a steel box located outside would get cold immediately without electric heat.
The electric heater adds standby cost to operational expense.
The tankless has a heater, but you still have to protect the incoming and outgoing pipes.
If your incoming water is very cold, the tankless heater may not be able raise the temperature fast enough to give two showers -or- even 1 shower depending on age and efficiency and capacity.
You can add a tempering tank located in naturally warm area that passively pre-heats incoming water before it enters the tankless burner.
It might be best to locate tankless inside the house >> and use direct vent through the wall for both incoming air supply and outgoing vent gas.
If incoming air is taken directly from the living space, then tankless will draw air into the house through cracks and around doors.
A lack of sufficient air, or poor air quality can cause the burner to shut down.

When buying a tankless, read the spec sheets and really ask questions about everything you don't understand.
