Please don't buy a used a/c unit you don't know what you are getting. Sometimes you can luck up but most of the time you are just still hot. You need An A/C tech to install you one the right way and what type of equipment you need.
Thanks,
Just a little advice

The unit is at my house in Gray. The unit was bought new and used for only a couple of months. It is to big for my home.

If you don't have the space that the 5 ton unit requires then you will have problems with it.
It will short cycle causing the system to leave the humidity in the house and that will lead to mold issues. If its oversized for your home then it will just freeze up at the a-coil.
Be careful buying used a/c systems. If its a r22 system and it doesn't have freon in it then getting a 5 ton charged will cost $400-$500 alone.
I have done HVAC for 15 years and not had much luck buying used systems.

I appreciate your post, it's a 4 & half ton, guy that's installin unit said blower can b cut down to bout 3 & half & that's perfect for our space. We had 3 ton furnace in & it didn't heat half space we have so it should be ok, we have several people askin to install unit, they have license & are up to code in Tn & KY...They both charge unit also pretty cheap. It's a 2 year old unit, we ran model & serial numbers b4 we bought unit & had it tested by seller also b4 we bought it so we're ok....Got a great deal on it so was hard to pass up w/ us needin one...It's pkg unit so not sure if we'll need coil or not...Thanx for ur post...

As far as I know there is no such thing as a 4-1/2 ton a/c unit. It has to be a 4 or 5 ton. It's in your model #. If model # has a 48 in it then its a 4 ton. If it has a 60 in it then its a 5 ton. Cutting down a blower speed lowers cfm's and furthermore lowers freon temp at the evaporator causing freezing. If anything the air flow needs increased to prevent freezing if the unit is oversized.
You can do what you want to but you really need to be aware and pay attention to your home next summer if you get this unit installed especially if its a 5 ton. Oversized units don't remove humidity out of the house. Humidity in the air is moisture. Pay close attention to window sills, that's where mold seems to show up the most when an oversized a/c unit is installed. If you notice this you need to do something else about cooling your home. Also go to a hardware store and buy a digital hygrometer (they're inexpensive) and keep an eye on the humidity level in the home. 60% or more constant humidity is too much moisture in the home. I'm afraid with this unit you're getting that you will see probably 70%+. I wish you the best and I'm not trying to be a know it all... I've just seen it too many times. God Bless

I appreciate ur post very much, guy we bought it from said it was 5 ton, guy were gettin to install said it could be turned down & it would help but I guess we'll find out when it's installed, we got a good deal on it, we're more concerned bout the heat than the air, both will be nice thou. We have a good size home so prayin it will be ok...I never judge, I appreciate ur honest concern...Guy that's gonna install it has business doing this, over 20 years experience so we're good there also. He's one suggested turnin blower down. I will take ur good advice & get the moisture detecter thou...God Bless you fir ur concern...
