    What BTUH 3.0E-37 means

    In all the Haier Air Conditioners spec, they listed cooling BTUH (Max) at 3.0E-37

    what does this 3.0E-37 really means?
    Is it 8000 BTU or 12000 BTU?

    That's their shit proofreading of their terrible documentation. Obviously the number was mangled by some software somewhere along the line, so who knows what it was supposed to be. If you convert that to standard notation, it becomes 30000000000000000000000000000000000000 - which doesn't mean anything.

    3.0 E-37 is

    .0000000000000000000000000000000000000003 of whatever unit their using. As above. It's a typo.

    Go by what the box or model number says.

    It sounds like chapter and verse from a spec sheet.

    well, in math, its actually means exponential notation in 3.0 E-37 = 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000003

    But check ALL the Haier portable Air Conditioners cooling spec and also google this 3.0 E-37, its all in Haier Air Conditioner specs of their cooling, strangely for all models, regardless 8000, 10000, 12000, 14000 btuh.

    Oops, I forgot how notations works and converted in the wrong direction. Honestly I have no idea what they may have been trying to type into their spreadsheet in order to actually get that number as output.
