The "30" in the model number says that it a a 30,000btuh unit. Since there are 12,000 btus in a ton of air conditioning, then your unit is rated at 2 1/2 tons nominal capacity. (30k divided by 12K = 2 1/2 ton) Depending upon the climate in your particular area, and assuming a reasonably well insulated home, you can figure that a ton of cooling is good for between 400-500 square feet of floor space so a 2 1/2 ton unit should be good for between 1000 and 1500 square feet of floorspace! - THESE are only rough guidelines though,... you need to have a heat load analysis run ( "J" manual for residential - "N" manual for commercial)
