Hello,
All you need to match is tonnage and refrigerant.
If you have the model numbers and refrigerant used from each we can be more specific for you

Where do I find tonnage and refrigerant info?
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 3 years ago
There is a label/tag on every unit. It has model serial, voltage, refrigerant etc....
We just need the model numbers and the refrigerant. It will say R22 or R410A

My current unit is Amana model #RC83682A (R22) and the used unit I hope to use is an Amana Model# ***** (R22)both are PSIG 300, 150LS,... BUT 85oz vs. 195oz, Comp 15.3 vs. 21.8, RLA 82 vs. 105,1/4hp vs. 1/3hp, fan 1.7 vs. 2.3, 1.) What is the down side of using a different outdoor unit like I've described? 2.) How much would the labor be to swap one out? 3.) What would a new comparable unit cost? Thanks for your expertise. Tom
HVAC Technician: BillyHvac, Journeyman HVAC Tech replied 3 years ago
Ok the units both have the same refrigerant...but the current one is a 3 ton unit (36000 btu) and the proposed is 4 ton (48000 btu)
To change out a condensing unit with R22 at that size by a contractor is going
to be around $2,000.00
