    Using Compressor Model # to find tonnage of a/c?

    I couldn't get any numbers from the condensing unit, but the compressor is a Copeland #CR32k6-PFV, and the evap case Model # is Nordyne C1BA-048c, so am I right in thinking this A/C system is a 3.5 ton?

    I suppose a 32 could be in a 3.5 ton A/C but my guess would be more like a 3 ton.

    Wish I knew how myself. Half these new tags you run into can not be read any more or some jerk took the thing back to the shop.

    I'll check it a bit more. Thanks. I am guessing it's better than that one review. "Whoever made this ap should be tasered. In the face."

    The evap Model # is what made me think the evap could be used as a 4 ton, or 3.5 ton. All of their evap model numbers have either 24, 30, 36, 42, or 48 in them, so this one has 48 in it.

    i would say its a 3 ton condensing unit hooked up to a 4 ton coil.

    compressor is definately 32,000 btu, doubt it would be in a 3 1/2 ton unit.

    Yup, and a weak 3 ton at that.

    Here is a link to the tech data on this compressor. I'm not familiar with reading these things, but I see that the capacity ranges from 32,000 to 42,400; the 42,400 would bring it within the 3.5 ton, but again, I'm not familiar with what these spec numbers are telling me.

    That is weird, the site apparently has a safeguard built in that won't let me copy & paste its url. Let me try this one: https://opi.emersonclimate.com/was.e...web/OPIServlet

    Your looking at two different condensing temperatures. And yes the capacity will increase at a lower ambient .
