Determine your existing air conditioning system size

What differentiates us from other air conditioning and heating providers is our commitment to providing user-friendly online pricing and educational tools to our customers. So whether you are looking to replace your existing system, install a new one, or simply shop prices and features from the comfort of your home, we have a full range of solutions for you.

If you are considering replacing an existing system and just want to research prices and options on your own, you can shop our online store. The very first thing you will need to determine is what size system is required. Air conditioning and heat pump system capacities are offered in what is referred to as "tonnage". You will see 1.5 through 5.0 "ton" systems listed on our site.

If your existing system is properly sized for your home, you can shop using the sizing of your existing system. The best way to determine what you have now is to look at the outdoor unit. There is a plate or sticker attached to it, usually toward the bottom where a set of copper pipes connects to the unit. The size (tonnage) is never listed on the unit but the model number will usually tell what size is in place now. The tonnage, or capacity of the system is coded in the model number. Somewhere within the model number, look for the following numbers: 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, or 60

18 = 1.5 tons
24 = 2.0 tons
30 = 2.5 tons
36 = 3.0 tons
42 = 3.5 tons
48 = 4.0 tons
60 = 5.0 tons

If you can't read the model number due to wear on the plate, there are several other options. Call your existing service company to see if they have a record of the size. If there is no record of the size, then try asking a neighbor who has a home very similar to yours if they know what size system they have.

If you are unable to determine your system size, call us and we can have a personal advisor stop by and provide you with a free written estimate. You can then shop all of the options available from our online store, including air filtration, system features, and various levels of efficiency that best fit you lifestyle and needs
