    Can someone tell me what cooling capacity a 38vh005300 condensing unit has. And by the way, how do you read the model number or where can I go to look this up?

    Must be a recent model.

    not that new. looks like it has been in service for a while and not serviced recently. I'm sure it is twice as big as it needs to be. But what size is it?

    This is definitely a mixed bag. I would say the evap coil is from Lennox, the furnace is a rheem, and the condensing unit is carrier. If we can't read the model number, we can't get it right.
    I know who I serve.

    that thing has got to be over twenty years old.It was more than likely put in by rule of thumb do a load calc.....when all elese fails compressor ratings are easier to find it seems to me.
    Take your time & do it right!

    I have done the load calc. Results - 2 tons. That explains why there is a 4 ton unit on the pad. I am so tired of this. There are way too many rule of thumbers in this state.

    I just need to make sure when I replace this furnace, that I get as much airflow as I can out of it, so the AC doesn't get too unhappy and cause me a bunch of call backs.
