Our Goodman line of air conditioners provides energy-efficient comfort and technology to your home at a reasonable price. From the energy-efficient compressor, designed to provide years of reliable cooling comfort, to a single-speed condenser fan motor that provides dependable and quiet airflow across the condensing coil, the Goodman air conditioner is one of the best that you’ll find - at a price that won’t break the bank. And, when combined with a gas furnace, evaporator coil, or air handler, the Goodman air conditioner can work in tandem with other systems to ensure that your space is cool when it needs to be.
Air handler and air conditioning unit combinations are usually best for those who already live in a warmer climate and don’t require a heavy-duty heater during the winter months. In contrast, a furnace and air conditioner combination is best for those who require the heating power of a gas or electric furnace.
You have chosen the 4 ton Goodman air conditioner. This particular air conditioner will be able to cool a space in a warmer climate (like the southern and southwestern portion of the United States, for example) with average square footage between 2,101 and 2,500 square feet. And then, for milder areas, a 4-ton air conditioner can adequately cool a space that is 2,201 to 2,600 square feet. And finally, if your space is between 2,251 and 2,700 square feet and located in an area with a generally cooler climate, this 4-ton system will suit you well.
Though using a BTU calculator like the one found by visiting this link might provide a more accurate guide, there is a relatively simple way to calculate how many BTUs your new system will need to possess in order to efficiently heat or cool your home. Essentially, heating and cooling zones are divided into five zones. Zone one is located in the warmest sections of the United States, like the deep south and southwestern portions of the country. Zones two and three are located in the more northern portions of the United States, like Tennessee, California, and North Carolina. Then, following that same logic, zones four and five, with five being the coldest, sweep across the upper portion of the Midwest and the northern portion of the United States.
Here is what each zone requires in terms of BTUs needed per square foot:
Zone one: 30-35 BTUs per square foot
Zone two: 35-40 BTUs per square foot
Zone three: 40-45 BTUs per square foot
Zone four: 45-50 BTUs per square foot
Zone five: 50-60 BTUs per square foot
Further, as you continue to browse our selection of air conditioning systems, you will see that you have the option to choose between a “standard efficiency” gas furnace system and SEER (as it pertains to air handlers) or a “high efficiency” gas furnace system and SEER. On our site, “standard efficiency” stands for gas furnace systems that are 80% efficient and “high efficiency” gas furnace systems are those that are 92% efficiency or higher.
