What is the seer rating of a heil condensing unit model number n4a34bgkb200 and is this a heat pump?
You don`t size a condensing unit to match your indoor unit. You size it to match the rate at which your house gains heat (heat load). Then you buy a matching indoor evaporator coil and set the fan speed on the indoor unit to deliver the proper cfm to support whatever size condenser the heat load calculation says you needed.

The way the unit operates depends on the type of thermostat installed. Normally, they use a two stage thermostat. In this case, when the thermostat senses a need for cooling the condensing unit starts in low speed. If the temperature at the thermostat does not drop fast enough, the condensing unit is switched to high speed. The timing of the changing of speeds varies with the thermostat and unit.
If you have a split unit - one with an outdoor condensing unit and an evaporator coil built into the furnace indoors, the refrigerant type will be shown on a label or engraved metal plate attached to the condensing unit. The amount of refrigerant will vary, depending on the diameter and length of pipe connecting the two units. Most window air conditioners have an hermetically sealed refrigerant loop and cannot be recharged in the field…
A condensing unit takes superheated gas and condenses it back to a liquid state. The superheated gas is under high pressure and can pose an explosion hazard if allowed to exceed operating pressures of the system in which it is running. The safety relief valve will release any pressure that is above the maximum safe operating pressure of the system.
As a 34-year HVAC veteran, I usually recommend replacement of the condensing unit only when the compressor has failed (seized or burnt out). A properly maintained central air conditioning system should easily last 20-30+ years, so don't replace it early! When a replacement is required, I will usually recommend a menu of options (at increasing cost): 1. Replace the failed compressor in the existing condensing unit 2. Replace the existing condensing unit only (where the…
