Old Lennox Heatpump # size question
Have an old Lennox heatpump to change out and me and the boss whose been in the industry much longer than me but not a Lennox dealer disagree on the size. He says a M/n 10HP48-1p, S/n 5193E32877 is a 5 ton because Lennox used odd numbering back in the day but it sure looks like a 4 ton to me by those numbers. Can a Lennox guy chime in and settle this ? Thanks

Send me an email (address is in my profile), and I will forward you the Lennox Nomenclature to show your boss.

It is a four ton unit as hvacman14 said. In the old days the 5 ton was listed as a "65".

For old Lennox, round down. The 5 ton 65 dawg mentions, round down from 65 to 60,000 BTUs. Or an old 4 ton would be a 51 which rounds down to 48K. So simple.

these numbers as in HS19-311-2P or HP18-411-7P the 3rd number like 411 or 413 stands for single or 3 phase.
