### How many watts is a 1 ton AC?

As you can see , an AC with 1 Ton capacity will have a number 12 written in the model Code. Suppose you have a 1 Ton capacity Air-Conditioner , then a

**12,000**BTU (or 1 Ton) type AC typically uses about**1200 watts**of electricity.#### What is the meaning of 1 ton AC?

A**ton**, as used in the HVAC field, is a term that describes how much heat the**AC**unit can remove from a home in one hour. The measurement for heat is the British thermal unit (BTU). One**ton**of air conditioning can remove 12,000 BTUs of air per hour. They are the most efficient units available.#### How much power is consumed by 1.5 ton AC?

cooling capacity of 1 ton is equal to**3.517 kW**of power.

For 1.5 ton AC ,power consumption of ac =cooling capacity/EER.

=1.5*3.517/2.7=1.954 kW.

AC consists of two units, Indoor unit which is called the evaporator and the Outdoor Unit which called the Compressor.#### How many watts is a refrigerator?

The power consumption of domestic**fridges**is typically between 100 and 200**watts**. Over a full day they are likely to**use**around 1 to 2 kilowatt-hours (kWh). Old domestic refrigerators and commercial refrigerators consume**much**more. The actual energy consumption of your**fridge**or freezer will depend on**many**factors.
