    sounds like a 5 ton

    Copelands numbers are a little shy of whay it actually pushes

    I changed out a 2.5 ton the other day, had a 28 in it rather than a 30.

    Dont quote me on this just a guesstimate

    Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.

    The manufacture chooses what compressor to put in the unit. Copeland rates them for what they are.

    at high temp it's around 5 tons

    start getting into medium and low and see that number drop by thirds

    isn't this a technical discussion?

    aren't we in the general area?? weird1

    Compressor Btu ratings are at a set standard gas temperature, gas pressure. If the gas is more dense, the compressor will pump more than its rating. If the gas is less dense the compressor will pump less than its rating. That's why you can find a ZR54 compressor in a unit rated at a true 60,000 Btu's.
