    Correct tonnage

    Hey guys I have a two part question here, first is this model number R2A360GKR2 a 5ton unit? I'm pretty sure it's a carrier unit since any name placards are missing. Secondly I shouldn't have a problem taking a compressor from a straight cool and installing it in a heat pump would I?

    This is an ICP unit (now owned by Carrier), and it is 5 ton (60).

    A compressor is a compressor, no matter if it is in a Heat pump or AC condenser. The question is, is the BTUH size and Refrigerant type, compatible for the system you are installing it in?

    The heat pump compressor needs to be designed for very high compression ratios in heating mode, basically it’s a low temp system with as low as -10° SST and 110° SCT. Keeping compressors cool in those conditions can be a problem.

    You are correct, but point I am making is, many manufacturers use the same compressor in their straight AC condensers and Heatpumps units of the same model line.

    That is fascinating, I never would have guessed that.
