    It is a 3 ton unit.

    Coils do not have a seer rating.

    Get the model number of the outdoor unit and I can tell you if it is a heat pump or straight A/C, and what it's seer rating is.
    Instead of learning the tricks of the trade, learn the trade.

    venting materials

    I should say these furnaces were approved for venting with thermo-plastic pipe at one time. But do to problems with the pipe they should only be vented with B-vent (double wall ) metal piping. If vented horiztonal the venting materials are the same but an approved power venter kit must be use.

    I just bought the home I did notice it has white pvc pipe used to vent it. Should I change this out to be safer for my family?
