I’m not familiar with chillers.
I did an inspection of a 26.8 ton chiller located outside for a 13,000 s.f house in new York.
Chiller was installed in 2008. Its huge. See picture
The house is well insulated but has single pane glass windows.
Without doing heat loss calcs, I just wanted to get an idea of the correct size for this house.
There are approx 8-10 air-handlers in the house.
When I do a quick calculation say at 500 s.f. per ton / 13000 s.f. it comes to 26 tons.
Would this be a good gauge on what the size would be?
Another quick question, would it have it been better or cost effective to use say multiple condensing units?
Whats the pros and cons.
