At a cost of

**$0.134**per kWh, this amounts to**$120.60**per month. A large 12,000 BTU air conditioner, like that in a window, running six hours each day will consume 270 kWh, at a cost of**$36.26 per month**.Herein, how many watts does an air conditioner use?

As a general reference point, a 3 ton central

**air conditioner uses**around 3500**watts**per hour and a 12,000 BTU window unit**uses**about 1200**watts**per hour.How many watts does a room air conditioner use?

An average central ac will use

**3000**to**5000 watts**of power every hour for around 9 hours a day during the hotter months. Click calculate to find the energy consumption of a central air conditioner using**3500 Watts**for 3 hours a day @ $0.10 per kWh.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.
