Ton is a measure of cooling only when buildings were cooled by ice and how many tons of ice they would use in 24 hours.

British Thermal Units (BTU's) is also a measure of cooling as well as heating in 1 hour.

1 ton equals 12,000 BTU/hr and 1 watt equals to 3.41214 BTU/hr.

Not every 3-ton unit weighs exactly the same - they differ in weight depending on how they were manufactured. Most 3-ton units weigh around 150 pounds (I would guess) give or take a few pounds.

The "3-ton" refers to the "cooling capacity" of the air conditioner.

It's actually 'slang' for 36,000 Btu.

Note; 12,000 btu equals 1 ton.

Hence a 24,000 Btu unit would be called a "2-ton unit," and a 12,000 Btu unit would be called a 1 ton unit.

This is a 3 and 1/2 ton unit.

The 042 in the model number is the tonnage of your carrier unit.

AC tonnage is based on 12,000 btu per ton.

12,000.....1 ton

18,000.....1 and 1/2 ton

24,000.....2 ton

30,000.....2 and 1/2 ton

36,000.....3 ton

42,000.....3 and 1/2 ton

48,000.....4 ton

60,000.....5 ton.

There is no 4 and 1/2 ton unit.

1 ton of cooling equals 12,000 BTU

2 ton of cooling equals 24,000 BTU

3 ton of cooling equals 36,000 BTU

1000 sq ft home needs about 30,000 BTU of cooling..... if you live in Kansas USA.

This is basic cooling. Hope this helps.

Hi, to find out the tonnage of your unit in b. t. u.'s, look at the 08 in your model number. There are 12,000 btu's per ton of cooling. You have a window /wall unit, and according to the model # 08 is not a 1/2 ton or a 1 ton, but a 3/4 ton unit or 8,000 btu's if indeed this is the correct model number. Most units we come across are in btus as 06 which is 1/2 ton, 12,000 is 1 ton, 018 is 1 1/2 ton and on up with a properly matched indoor coil. Your unit is a package window unit, so both coils are equal.

Hi,

In the model number the 030 stands for a nominal 30,000 btu output....at 12,000 BTU per ton that translates to approx. 2.5 tons of air conditioning with a properly matched coil.

12,000 btu = 1 Ton...

24,000 btu = 2 Ton

etc

24,000 btu = 2 Ton

etc

Hi, you tell by the BTU"S it is. 12,000 BTU'S equal 1 ton of cooling. So, if you see a number in the model number like 024 or 030, and so on, 024 is a 2 ton, 030 is a 2 1/2 ton. Just remember this for each ton of cooling, you will have 12,000 BTU'S.

hi there..

this what i found for you...

The unit*ton* is used in refrigeration and air conditioning to measure heat absorption. Prior to the introduction of mechanical refrigeration, cooling was accomplished by delivering ice. Installing one ton of refrigeration replaced the daily delivery of one ton of ice.

The unit

- In the United States, a
**standard ton of refrigeration**= 12,000 BTU/h = 200 BTU/min ≈ 3,517 W. It is approximately the power required to cool 1 short ton of water by 1 °F every 10 minutes; or the power required to melt one short ton (2,000 lb) of ice at 0 °C in 24 hours.

- A
*ton*is also a unit of energy equal to that power for a period of a day, or 24 h × 12,000 BTU/h = 288,000 BTU ≈ 303.9 megajoules.

- A less common usage is the power required to cool 1 long ton of water by 1 °F every 10 minutes = 13,440 BTU/h ≈ 3,939 W.
