How to convert tons to kw. is it simply kw/ton = 12/EER?
Law Of The Thermostat: He who has the thermostat wins!!!!!
My favorite conversion site: http://www.onlineconversion.com/power.htm
multiply tons by 3.516 if you want to convert tons to cooling capacity in kW
If you want to estimate power consumption then convert the tons to the actual Btu/hr and divide by the EER to estimate watts consumed, divide watts by 1000 to get kW power consumed.
Multiple the kWs by how many hours it runs and get kWh
The way we build has a greater impact on our comfort, energy consumption and IAQ than any HVAC system we install.
3.5 kw per ton
Multiply tonnes by 12 to get BTU's in Thousands. Divide the answer by 3.415 to get watts by the thousand or KW. Their is 3.415 BTU in a Watt
