    I have an older Trane that has gone out. The model is TTRO036C100A0. I believe this is a 3.5 ton unit. The home it is in is the old family homested now a rental property soon to beup for sale. Located in TX. I am looking for a used unit that I can replace it with. I have access to an Intertherm Model 991H4271H? Supposedly 3.5 ton one year old, $XXX. I'm trying to find a good match. How can I verify that this is the correct tonage and what other factors should I know? High PSI, Low PSI? I am planning on having it professionally installed. But most licensed guys are not going to take the time to shop a good unit, I understand time is money. Advice?

    (no pricing, due to site rules )

    Old Trane info

    The inside HVAC unit is only 7 years old and is in great condition. So little should be needed I hope.

    You might want to see if there are any professional contractors that will install a used unit that is possibly mismatched.. Before you buy a unit.. You may find no-one to install it.. Also, who is going to guarentee it is any good.. I would be wandering why it was removed..Problems for sure..

    I know of no truly professional contractors that will install a used unit.. That would be asking for trouble.. Also, the cost of a new system is the installation more than the cost of the unit itself..

    Good luck, I see trouble..

    TTR036 is a 3 ton A/C outdoor unit. I have no idea what that Intertherm number is, doesn't look like an outdoor unit number. If the Trane had a matching coil, chances are it is also 3 ton so putting a 3.5 ton outdoor unit probably isn't the greatest idea. Might be better with an expansion valve added plus hard start components in the A/C but I can't picture the average contractor, especially one who will install this mess, doing it.
