I have a RUUD UACB056JAS AC unit. I'm curious as to how many tons it
is. Is there any way to decipher this from the model # or any of the
other tech data on the info plate?
It was built in 1984, and yes I know I'm lucky it's still running
Model Number Identification
U A L C
RUUD REMOTE HIGH EFFICIENCY DESIGN SERIES
CONDENSING (STANDARD) C = THIRD
DESIGN 024 = 24,000 BTU/HR [7.03 kW]
Since 1 T (refrig) --> 12 kBtu/hr, this would be 4+ T nominal.
Thanks for the help guys.
It most definitely is a UACB056JAS. I can read it clear as a bell
right on the plate. And 56,000BTUs sounds about right. This house
is about 3500 Sqft. The gas furnace part is 150,000BTUs, which RUUD
actually had the sense to put right on the plate.
If any of the other ratings from the condenser would help confirm, it
Compressor RLA 32.2/30.8 LRA 180
Unit charge 93oz R22
Then that would appear to be it. I'm sure if you either contact Ruud
directly or a local dealer (which is what they may tell you to do)
Monday morning they can confirm it.
It is an unusual size if so, but given the age and the lack of online
data for older units at www.ruud.com, I figured it possible even though
saw the odd number as noted.
