Choosing the right air conditioner size ensures a home has adequate cooling and your HVAC system is running efficiently. As such, many customers often ask us, “how many tons of an air conditioner do I need?”
A 3-ton air conditioner moves 36,000 BTUs of heat per hour — enough to cool a home of up to 1,800 square feet in the southernmost states. In the Northeast and upper Midwest, these units are recommended for homes between 1,651 and 2,100 square feet in size. Visit our A/C & Heater Equipment Sizing Guide for more information. Those shopping for a replacement air conditioner can determine if they have a 3-ton unit by looking for the number “36” on the manufacturer identification plate.
If you’ve determined you need a 3-ton A/C unit, you can get one at HVACDirect.com from leading HVAC manufacturers. Goodman 3-ton air conditioner condensers are a perfect choice for most homeowners and are trusted by thousands of professional installers. We also offer high-quality, trusted AirQuest by Carrier 3-ton air conditioners at a lower price.
While each of the units here has a 3-ton airflow, there are several options depending on your location. Our single-stage central air units are sufficient for mild northern climates while two-stage and variable speed compressors are preferred in hot and humid areas. A lower SEER rating will save you money up front while higher SEER ratings can reduce costs in the long run.
