Hi everyone. I have posted here a time or two in the past. I have to confess I am not an HVAC tech. I am a land developer- putting in the streets/subdivisions for the builders you all install the units for!
Anyway, I am buying an investment property- existing house that is zoned for office. It has a new Lennox system in it- installed about 1 year ago. It is on the main living level on plywood subfloor and not set in a metal pan w/ cutoff switch. I believe this is a code violation if I am not mistaken.
My main issue is how do I tell what the tonnage of the A/C unit and BTU of the furnace is? The current owner has had the house in "perfect" shape but vacant for the last year (he is too old to want to fool with renting it). he keeps the utilities active but basically keeps the A/C off. We are in Atlanta so it gets hot. I had him turn it on for a day to make sure it would cool the house down. it was 78 inside when we turned it on in the A.M. and at 5 P.M. it had only cooled it down to 73 (thermostat was set to 70). I am concerned it is too small to adequately cool the house, especially once computers are installed, etc.
On the side of the unit inside the house it had the folowing numbers:
If i have done things property below are two links to some photos of the unit.
