HOW TO INSURE OIL RETURN TO THE COMPRESSOR WHEN INSTALLING A/C UNITS


If the location of the condenser is above evaporator install oil trap to insure the oil return to the compressor. This is applicable to suction pipe only, and piping size should be in the standard size as per unit design.

I have purchase carrier ac 1.5 ton in may 2011, bt from last 10 days i m continously having a problem of water leakage from inddo unit. pls help me


Hello, usually the unit will leak if the condensate line is clogged or the condensate pan is cracked. If you have a wet/dry vac attach it to the outlet of the drain line and the vacuum will unclog the line. However, if this does not help than the condensate line is cracked and will need to be replaced or sealed.

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

I need a new coil on my Carrier unit...how much should that run? What other parts do I typically need to replace when replacing the coil?


It all depends which coil you are speaking of, Evaporator or condenser if you are lucky to find a used match which is highly unlikely. newer units have has their seer rating changed substansually causing both coils to be replced at the same time and by the time that is done a new lineset is required to elliminate cross contamination so its not good news depending on required tonage 3000 to 5000 dollars installed sorry wish it was better news

Air conditioner replacement--new size required?


567C024RCU In this model number is the # 24. That stands for 24,000 btu's. This is a two (2) ton unit. Has this two ton unit cooled ok in the past? if so replace with the same size. But make sure yo change the indoor coil to match the size "and" efficiancy of the ew unit.

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.
