The higher the seer the more efficent it is no matter the tonage of the unit

make sure that the tonage is correctly sized for the home rule of thumb is if the home is insulsted properly 600 sq feeet per ton
oversizing creates shot cycles real cool then warm real cool then warm, under size unit runs all the time

13 seer 2 ton reheem ucentral air very noisey what is a more quiet make


Unfortunately the quieter ones are more expensive. I have a variable speed Trane '19 seer' which is extremely quiet. But, with the higher 'seer' I save money on electric.

Trying to get info (tonnage seer rating) on a weatherking mod# 10ajb48a01 condencing unit to find a matching evaporator coil and cannot find anything on internet


This is a 4 ton model condensing unit. You can go up 1/2 ton for the evaporator, meaning a 4 1/2 (A) coil will work just fine and allow a bit more cooling capacity.

I live in Phoenix, AZ. I have a 2 story 2300 sq ft home built in 2001. I have two Carrier AC units outside on the side of the house. They are the originals. The Large unit (upstairs) model 38CKC042340 and...


T the upstairs is a 3 1/2 ton 10.0 SEER condenser, and the downstairs is a 2 1/2 ton 10.0 SEER condenser. You can use any 10 SEER Unit on replacement, but if you go any higher in SEER (efficiency), there is a possibility the unit will freeze up. The reason is because the indoor coil also has an efficiency rating (10.0 SEER). It is not a good idea to mismatch units when it comes to SEER. Otherwise, you can use any brand of unit, if you want to go higher in efficiency, you need to change the indoor coil as well. Hope this helps. Mark

How do i know the tons and seer of my york unit model h4db060s06a ser #wglm032b12


That is a 5 ton system but I do not know the SEER rating. See that 060 in the middle of the model number? That means 60,000 BTU or cooling capacity and that is 5 tons.

I'm looking to purchase a Rudd 2 stage model, 16 SEER, 5 ton along with a 100000 BTU 95% furnace. I have a two story home and will only be using the 1 AC. Will the Rudd cool both floors?


Assuming that there are ducts ran upstairs and downstairs, it all depends on the square footage of the living spaces, i.e. bedrooms, living room, dining room, etc. You need an average of 1 cfm per sq ft. For every 1 ton of air, you have an average of 400cfms. So your 5 ton unit will cool/heat 2000 sq ft. A 16 seer unit with a 95% furnace is a nice buy and you will notice the difference for sure. Hope this helps!

I HAVE A GOODMAN MODEL CKL36-1D I'M TRYING TO FIND OUT THE SEER RATING ON THIS MODEL.CAN ANYONE HELP?


Your going to need to know the age of the unit. If its less than 5 years old, its most likely a 13 SEER. If its anything more than 5 years old, its most likely a 10 SEER. If its anything over 10 years old, its most likely an 8 or 6 SEER.

Remember, that a unit will loose an average of 1-2 SEER for every full year of operation. This is just due to age, wear and tear, and usage.



So, if its a 10 SEER unit that is 7 years old, you could say that it is about as efficient as something in the 4-6 SEER range.
