What is the capacity of a 2.5 ton heat pump in terms of area?
The rule of thumb is 400 sq ft per ton, but that is not always accurate. HVACCALC will show you why.

You had a 2 ton heat pump and had 9 registers in the house you bought a 3.5 ton replacement how many registers do you need?
\nAll of them. Adjust the heat or cooling by the register openings.
Carrier Infinity with Infinity controls (R410 vice R22 freon) 4Ton is about a $6000 unit - though through scratch and dent or other discounts sometimes you can get them for le…ss (10-20% less). Installed with taking your old equipment away would depend on your area and the hunger factor for your subs - should be no more than $8500 total. But that can be nibbled down with some shopping around. This is representative of a good price, but not the best price - the latter takes some dedication and skill (and luck) on your part.
You need to check the compressor sticker or plate. If faded or unreadable try the installation paperwork/instructions. Typically you can search by the model number online to f…ind it.
Yes, depending on how long the lines are. The unit should have a sticker showing the unit's charge, then you have to figure the lines and the coils in the furnace.
You should have an HVAC company perform a Manual J load calculation done on your home. for the best sizing . The old way here in the south USA dictates 3.5 tons cooling serv…ed most homes from 1500-1700 sq ft. depending on variables. BE CERTAIN get the Manual J calc. for best results.

My 3 ton geo unit uses a 30 amp breaker. That is probably more than adequate because it also is for the vertical loop pumps in the ground. The back-up heat strips however, u…se a 60 amp breaker (on my system.) I'm not sure but I would say yours probably needs that too. Good luck!
3 tons of refrigeration = 36,000 BTU's
there are 2500 kilograms in 2.5 tonnes. 1000 kilograms = 1 tonne Or if you were referring to a standard Ton (Imperial system in the United States) there would be: 2267.96Kg …in 2.5 Tons
A standard ton of refrigeration is 12,000 BTU/h (3517 W). There for a 2 ton unit is a 24,000 BTU/h unit and a 3 ton unit is a 36,000 BTU/h unit.
Cost may vary depends on the house size, accessibility, the amount of work involved in duct reworking, disconnecting/connecting gas electricity. Normally, it's better to rep…lace AC/coil/Furnace all together, since a new furnace may not be compatible with old indoor blower /evaporator coil. Another fact is if you want have a very high efficiency and expensive 18 SEER high-end quite ac, or just 13 SEER get job done low-end AC. It also depends on accessories (media filter , humidifier) you like to have.

That could have many different variables such as ceiling hights heat loss to windows . But under normal conditions a two tone unit should be sufficent.
No because the air temperature would either make the unit over do or in some cases it would make the unit not put out enough.
Usually around 4-5, but these devices are generally filled to a desired temperature differential, not simply by weight.
Based on typical ac equipment naming conventions - 48 - in the model number indicates 48,000 btuh nominal or about 4 tons cooling capacity.
Based on typical naming conventions - 42 - in the model numberindicates 42,000 btuh nominal or 3.5 tons.
It's a weight. About the weight of large car.
