    Confused RHEEM RBHA-17J15SF8A Filter

    I am moving from Florida to NC and purchased a home with an older HVAC. It is a RHEEM RBHA-17J airhandler with the 3 ton coil. I have no idea what size filter goes in the unit. Also does anyone have any idea about the possible SEER Rating?

    The filter should be 16.25" x 21"

    Air handlers don't have SEER ratings. If it is the original install, it is probably matched with a 10-12 SEER air conditioner or heat pump.

    Do you have the model number of the outside unit?

    Those two pieces of equipment were a matched set back in it's day, and rated at 10.20 SEER and 7.60 HSPF.

    Confused

    Dumb Question about to launch... Can those ratings go down as the unit ages? What factors cause that (compressor, blower motor, lines and coils build up)? I appreciate the information.

    Anything that causes the unit to produce less BTU's and use more electricity, reduces the SEER.

    So yes, to all of the above.
