# How is AC load calculated?

## How is AC load calculated?

EER(Energy Efficiency Ratio)=cooling capacity of ac/power consumed by ac. cooling capacity of 1 ton is equal to 3.517 kW of power. =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 do I calculate the AC load for a room?

Area Method : To calculate, multiply the length and breadth of the room (in feet), take square-root of the answer and divide by 10. The resulting number will give the desired tonnage. Volume Method : Alternatively, multiply the length, breadth and height of a room (in feet). Divide the answer by 1000.

#### How do you calculate electrical load for HVAC?

Multiply volts, amperes and the number of air conditioners in each unit to find the air conditioning load for each unit. The air conditioning load for each unit is 5,520 VA (240 11.5 2 = 5,520). The total air conditioning load for 30 units is 165,600 VA (5,520 30 = 165,600).

**How do I calculate how much load I need?**

Calculating Load

- Add together the wattage capacity of all general lighting branch circuits.
- Add in the wattage rating of all plug-in outlet circuits.
- Add in the wattage rating of all permanent appliances (ranges, dryers, water heaters, etc.)
- Subtract 10,000.
- Multiply this number by .
- Add 10,000.

**What is the load of 1.5 ton AC?**

As a general rule of thumb, for AC power consumption calculation you should take, 1 ton of cooling = 1,000 watts. 1.5 ton of cooling = 1,500 watts.

## Can I use a 1.5 ton AC if my load is 1 kW?

No, You can not use 2 AC of 1.5Ton on 1KW 1 PHASE CONNECTION. yOU CAN NOT USE 1 AC OF 1.5 TON ON 1KW 1PHASE CONNECTION AS 1.5TON AC CONSUME ALMOST 6 TO 8A CURRENT WHERE AS 1KW 1 PHASE CAN WITHSTAND MAXIMUM 4A CURRENT.

### What is load in HVAC?

Load means the amount of heating or cooling required by a building. Capacity refers to the amount of heating or cooling an HVAC system can offer.

#### How is kW load calculated?

We find the power in kilowatts P(kW) by dividing the power in watts P(W) by 1,000. Here’s the Formula for Converting Watts Into Kilowatts: P(kW) = P(W) / 1,000.

**Can I use 2 AC 1.5 ton each at the same time in 2kw?**

Yes you can easily run 2 acs.
