Size of A/C units

Recommended Posts

Ok, there are two brand new ICP Comfortmaster units side by side. Both 13 Seer. The shorter unit on the right is a FIVE ton unit. The taller condenser on the left is a FOUR ton size. Same footprint. LG scroll compressors inside. Confirmed with the model numbers, electrical requirements, and the builders invoice.

How can a five ton unit be physically smaller than a four ton unit?? All else being equal.

Maybe it has to do with the amount of air to be cooled in the home and the size of the evaporator coil matched to the unit.

I wouldn't worry about it. We aren't required to determine whether HVAC or Plumbing engineers designed a system correctly - we're supposed to be looking at how it's installed and looking for physical deficiencies with the installed components.
