    Very Old Compressor

    I'm trying to figure out the tonnage of a very old Amana/Goodman unit. All I have is the compressor info. I know that there is a 3.5 ton coil inside and I will go with that if I can't figure out the outside tonnage. Sorry that I don't have a better picture. Thanks

    Can your young eyes make out any of the info on that name plate?

    If you can read the model number, we can tell you the capacity of the compressor.
    Instead of learning the tricks of the trade, learn the trade.

    Looks like a two ton to me. Take a piece of paper, and lay over the plate and do a rubbing with a pencil.

    Pretty clear, Copeland 0250 is a 2.5 ton compressor so likely in a 2.5 ton A/C. Slight chance it is a 3 ton but notably smaller compressors tended to come later than 1985. Leave Amana out of Goodman way back then too.

    What are you trying to do?
