Depending on everything working correctly with the system, the problem I see may be the size of the system. 2.5 tons is enough to condition around 1000 sq. ft. At 1600 sq. ft. Of living space, you will need a 3.5 to 4 ton system. Unless it was designed in a way that 2.5 tons would work which i doubt, there would be a problem with the charge of refrigerant or other under lying problems. First I would make sure your system is designed right for your house, check all filters and air flow from the vents. Then you go from there. Q good way to check the charge without equipment to do it, on a warm to hot day the outside copper lines should be sweating and warm to hot air coming from the fan on top of the condenser. It's not the accurate way to do it, but a good check anyways. Hope this helps and good luck!

I have a Goodman GSC130361DE it is too small for a 2100sq ft home


Well you have a 3 ton system, it might be a tick small depending on windows and insulation in the house. Make sure you set it at one temp and leave it. Zoneing would also help.

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

We have an older model Lennox ac model #HS26-461-P and we are trying to find out what the tonnage is. Can you tell me where to look or if you know what it is will you please tell me?


The answer that (TheMobilian) left couldn't be further from the truth, of offense. So you're saying if you have a 1000 sq ft house with 4 bedrooms you'd have 4.5 tons of cooling? That's insane, the compressor in that system would be shot in about 6 months from short cycling. Their are many factors in sizing equipment, but none of them involve how many bedrooms you have. If you don't know how to calculate load from windows and insulation factor, then you can use the old (1 ton per 500-550 sq ft) that will get you close.

if these are the longest runs from the air handler this can sometimes happen ,about the easest solution is to install a in duct heater into the duct feeding the rooms this is basically a set of electric coils installed in duct to re-heat the air going to the bed room

We have an Amana SRCF30W01D unit and are planning a house extension. What is the sqft coverage for this unit?


Here in Florida the old Standard was around 700 S.Foot per ton.
Now days we size them 400-500 S.Foot per ton.
Appears by your Model number you have a 2-1/2 Ton system.
So id give you Max around 1700 SF.
Min 1200 SF depending on the conditions at the home.

Just a thought for you, Most AC companies will give you a free estimate for a new Ac unit, and can tell you what you may need Unit size wise.

Good Luck!

3 ton condensor and 2.5 air handler


I hate to use rules of thumb but 500sqft per ton depending on your windows and insulation. you are probably ok with a 2.5 ton however it will not work with a 3 ton outdoor unit as you have figured out. depending on how long that ac has been in you may want to replace it with a 2.5 ton due to the damage to the compressor valves because of the mis match. or if the indoor is newer and the original system may have been a 3 ton then i would replace the A/H. and be prepared to replace the outdoor if the valves are to far gone. If the trane is a new high effiency 2 and the goodman is just a 10 SEER you may be able to have a txv installed on the trane unit and a kickstart device outside. but only if its a high effiency but their again if the A/C fails you couldnt have a high effiency 3 ton you would have to drop down to 2.5,

New Goodman condenser unit run almost contiously using too much e


I'm not sure of the kilowatts. The 10 min on and 5 off is telling me there is to much heat by the thermostat or you house needs more insulation. The new compressor is designed for more efficient run time. The other thing is the unit to big for your house? It should run 10 -15 min when low humidity is in the house. Otherwise longer if its pretty warm inside.
