    You can usually tell by the model of the condenser. What is the model number.

    Going by the model number it is a 2 ton. For every 12 is a ton you have a 24 for 2ton.

    I have about 66 supply and a 78 return. It seems when the

    day warms up to much I'm losing. My pressures was 82 Low

    and 275 high. My UEI meter on the suction line read 48

    degree temp. Does everything sound right? The discharge

    line doesn't feel warm by hand. I'm wandering if it's

    more of an air flow problem or humidity.

    You need to call a Pro. You may have refrigerant charge issues from your readings.

    A 12 degree temp drop is low. The 82 suction psi sounds high for 78 return temp. If the suction line is 48 degrees it is slugging the compressor. What was the outdoor temp when you checked the pressures. Something is not right, is the equipment a matched system. It probably needs to be looked at.
