Rheem


I am looking into getting a 5.0 ton Rheem 13 seer central system for my 1800 sq. foot 1986 double wide trailer. Can any of you tell me a little something about this unit, and will it fit inside? Thanks in advance

I agree with playsinmud. Unless you are going to be using your mobile home for a large server room or a pottery kiln then 5 tons is probably way too much.
Mobile homes from the 80's were actually insulated pretty well.

5 tons what are you jokeing. get a load calculation done. something that big will cost a lot to run and your trailer will feel cold and clammy(damp). depending on insulation and window, probally more like 2.5 to 3.5 tons
load calculation,load calculation,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Re: Rheem


unless i am mistaken... more cooling = more dehumidification? i mean unless below dew point ?
honest question i just dont see how this would make things moldy.

Re: Rheem


more cooling = less dehumidification. the greater the capacity, the faster the system will pull down the temp. and satisfy the tstat shutting down the system. the unit wont run long enoughto properly remove the humidity leaving a cold but clammy feeling in the air, like a cave. the moisture will now condense on what ever is the coolest in the home like interior walls, fixtures etc. the moisture builds up and seeps into nooks and crannies and...yadda...yadda...yadda, mold.
