Need help selling a Carrier 4-ton 10SEER unit!

Can I sell this unit? My installer installed the unit, then realized it was the wrong unit (he was supposed to be installing a heat pump) and then immediately de-installed the unit and left it with me. There is no damage to the unit.

Yes you can sell this unit. You would have better luck posting on ebay or craigslist.

Replacement for 20yr old A/C system


I you have a 2.5 ton condenser on a 3 ton coil, and he gave you an estimate for a 1.5 ton condenser only, he missed something, or you need a second estimate. Now if give you an estimate for a complete system, with a 1.5 ton condenser/evap, coil, your ductwork will/may be oversized for that unit. Need a second estimate. You've been happy with a 2.5 ton cooling capacity in the past, don't settle for anything less, unless you've completely updated with new doors, windows, insulation, ect.... I'd call around and ask for an estimate, with a load, and then ask for the cooling tonnage and furnace BTU's from that load, when they call with the price. Most reputable companies will/can prove a proper load calculation and my city just made it mandatory to prove a load was achieved when a permit is pulled due to the Dept. Of Energy passing laws on this subject in 2015. Ask if its mandatory for a load calc. if they pull a permit. And they are supposed to pull a permit in city limits I'm sure. It's not a good practice to miss match systems with current designs. 20+ years ago it was, but now there are codes against this practice. And also shortcuts to try to make more money with less invested may not be considered GOOD PRACTICE. Hope this helps!

I had Ruud heating and cooling installed five years ago. Last summer my electric bill doubled when I began running my air conditioner. It did not do that the first few years that we were in this house. ...


Hello In a way you are stuck with what is called a S.E.E.R. rating which is a statement of efficiency from the manufacturer.Ex: a 10seer is less electricity to run than a 14 seer.The model # would have told me the seer rating.A 4 ton `1 zone is a large unit but even a 10 seer 4 ton is never cost prohibitive to operate and Never doubles the electric bill in 5 days out of thirty.Is the home unoccupied all month and you use it on weekends?Did the neighbor run a strange wire to your property?There might be stray or lost voltage in rare cases if there is poor grounding issues.Has the unit been serviced? A low freon charge will cause a unit to run excessively long and not cool.Do you run the indoor blower all the time.Has there been any other major purchases made (at all) that you plug in?I would look at everything because there is some cause for DOUBLE bill amount not just the cooling bill.Good luck

Hi there I have a model number for my carrier a/c unit. I need to find out the tonnage. 38ykc042300 Please any help I will be very greatful.


This is a 3 and 1/2 ton unit.
The 042 in the model number is the tonnage of your carrier unit.
AC tonnage is based on 12,000 btu per ton.
12,000.....1 ton
18,000.....1 and 1/2 ton
24,000.....2 ton
30,000.....2 and 1/2 ton
36,000.....3 ton
42,000.....3 and 1/2 ton
48,000.....4 ton
60,000.....5 ton.
There is no 4 and 1/2 ton unit.

Not cooling as it should


If you have a crushed, kinked, or otherwise restricted fitting in the system, it's possible the cooling may be affected. Pressure readings can be thrown off, and refrigerant flow can be inhibited.

Since the unit is new, you should have a complete parts and labor warranty, so ask the installer what the reason is that the system doesn't provide the cooling you were probably promised when they sold it to you. They should have taken into account the location of the condensing unit, the size and insulation in your house, indoor and outdoor conditions, your geography/climate, and any other load factors before selling you the system.

Air condition unit of sufficient size??


You currently own a 2.5 ton AC Unit
500 square feet equals a ton of cooling/ you need a 3.5 ton unit.
If your home is well insulated, good windows and doors and pretty good
shade that covers your house, then I can see a 3ton unit cooling your
house.

Thats another 6,000 btus you do not have and that is a best case for a
energy effcient home.

Can I mix brands/tons when installing AC unit to existing coils?


First off - the 'rule of thumb' is 600' per ton of Air Conditioning. In other words your old unit is a 2 ton unit. So - 2 tons x 600' = 1200'. As you can see if you install the 2.5 ton unit - you will be installing a AC that 'could' cool a 1500 sq ft house (2.5 x 600' =1500 sq ft.). Slightly more than what you need; and the 3.5 ton unit is 'way to big,' (3.5 x 600' = 2100 sq ft.).

Note: fyi - many in the AC business will sometimes refer to tonnage in btu's, i.e. 1 ton = 12000 btu - hence a '2 ton unit' can also be referred to as a 24000 btu unit and vice versa.

So... from the above - you can easily see that "2 tons" of Air conditioning is what is required to cool the 'average' home of 1100 sq ft. "roughly speaking."

Note: it is always best to have a professional 'size' your cooling/heating needs.

One of your questions was could you 'mix tonnage?'

The answer is 'usually you don't mix the tonnage of your outside/inside units.' However, professionals sometimes do (mix the tonnage) in certain situations, and installing a 2.5 ton outside unit with an existing 2 ton inside unit is often done, however, there are some 'tech issues' here and - I would "again" recommend that you call a Service Tech to help you with the sizing/mixing of your cooling/heating needs.

hope this has helped
