Need help with a condenser size.
Lennox condenser Model# HS25-511-1P Mfg 1993. Is this a 2 Ton unit? The size of the cabinet is as big a most 5 ton units.

Are you sure that was a 25 and not 26?


I suspect, but do not know, Chris, that it's a matter of economics. Why build seven housings when one or two might suffice? As well, just like babies, we adults will always translate bigger and shinier into better.

Older lennox condensers used this numbering system.
211 1.5 ton
261 2 ton
311 2.5 ton
411 3 ton
461 3.5 ton
511 4 ton
651 5 ton

The max breaker size rating for the condenser was probably 40 amp; that would also help narrow the size.
