Have HVAC Questions? Ask an HVAC Expert for Answers
Hello, I am looking your question over now, give me a few minutes to formulate a response please.
I can help you with this, its something I do all the time....there is the easy way, and the exceedingly laborious way. Tell me please if you are a competing contractor or a building owner etc. The easy approach is to ask the Ruud dealer to stop by, take measurements and provide a quote.
The other way is to give me the exact dimensions of the curb, and the supply and return ducts, and all of the numbers on compressor name plate (its on a welded tag) and I will see what I can do. It is likely that transitions will need to be made from the existing duct drops to accommodate a new unit.
We can go from there.
The btu rating and tonnage is crucial, but secondary to the duct drop dimensions.
I also need to know the voltage to the unit and if its 3 phase or single phase.
We have Rheem. RUUD dealers on site here...I will opt out for a few hours and we can see if any of them take up your question. If not, I can help you get the information from Ruud that you need.
You have contacted one of their junior level people... we just need to get to the top is all... and that will be our best initial approach.
Hello again, I see a few other experts here and some Rheem /Ruud dealers have looked this over and chosen not to answer.
I can help the way I do it if you can tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest city...I will make a few calls, we can go from there.
If none of our other experts pick this up, and since you are in Houston, I can connect you with any number of HVAC service companies that will be more than happy to come out and give you a bid on the replacement including figuring out the curb and duct transitions needed to make it all happen.
You are not stuck with Ruud.
Let me know if you want me to look around houston for you or not, we can go from there.
