1. ## size of unit

The unit on that modular home is an International Comfort System commercial unit.

I looked it up in the Carson Dunlop reference book but it did not list anything.

I wanted to make sure of the size.

The model # is PHD360000KTP0C1

If anyone knows the size or can direct me to a link I would appreciate it.

That's a 3 ton condenser. The 36 in the model # is the clue.

Any time I see a "commercial" something on a residence I check further as not all "commercial" appliances are approved for use in residences too.

I figured the 36 or the 60 was the number, but the check off sheet from the manufacturer calls it a 5 ton unit.

The home is 3,200 s.f. so I want to make sure what the tonnage is.

Thats why I wanted to make sure how I needed to read it.

That you would need to check on.

The number in the model number is one digit too long, i.e., 360000 could be 36000 0 or 3 60000 with 36000 as 36,000 Btu or 60000 as 60,000 Btu, with the other digit being some other identifier.

I'm going to guess that it is 5 ton based on the information on this page: Navigator=

Although the link for this: PAD3 R410A 2.5 - 5 Ton Technical Support Manual (9-08) is not working so I cannot verify it - but based on the PAD3 ... I would guess that model number is PAD3 60000 ...

They better hope it's 5 ton, 3 tons of AC is not going to cut it in a warm State for 3200 sqft.

A ton is equivalent to 12,000 BTUs per hour. One rule of thumb is that one ton of capacity is needed for each 550 square feet of living space. Keep in mind that this is only a guideline; there are many other factors that determine sizing requirements, such as ceiling height, insulation present, heat loss through windows and doors, and direction and amount of sunlight. Almost all systems have a "data plate" located on the compressor-condenser, which includes information such as the model number. Within the model number, the inspector should find a two-digit number divisible by six (such as 30, 36, 42, or 48), which represents thousands of BTUs. Example, a model number 28CC048-2 or BTC480C would have a capacity of 48,000 BTUs (48 times 1000), which is equivalent to four tons (48,000 divided by 12,000). Some manufacturers might also have two- or three- digit numbers at the end of the model number that denote either thousands of BTUs or the actual number of tons (for example 31 would be 31,000 BTUs or 004 would be four tons).

If it is possible have a qualified airconditioning professional tell you what the right size unit will be for a size matter. They could also recommend which unit will be the right size and better efficient.
