12,000 BTU ( British Thermal Units ) converts to 3.5 kw/h.( kilowatts per hour or kilowatt hours )
3.5 kwh's x 24 = 84 kwh's per day. The average cost per kwh in the U.S. is near 13 cents per kwh, so as an example using these numbers .13 x 84 = \$10.92 per day. x 30 = \$327.60 per month. As mentioned in the previous solution, in order to get the most accurate estimate, you will need to find out what your local supplier charges per kwh. That information is printed on your utility bill.
As you might have guessed the per month figure can be significantly different depending largely on what your supplier charges.

To determine the cost of using this air conditioner, you will need to find out what your electric company charges per kw/h. This is the standard unit that electricity is charged for. Next determine the wattage of the air conditioner. This should be found on the unit name plate. If you can not find the wattage by the name plate, the take the voltage and multiply by the amperage, this will give you watts. Next multiply the wattage by 24. (watts per hour x 24 hours) Finally divide this number by 1000. This will give you the total Kw that the unit will use in a 24 hour period. If you multiply this number by the cost per Kw that will give you the operating cost of your unit for one day.
ex. electric company charges .25/Kw The unit uses 1000 watts 1000 x 24 = 24000 watts 24000/1000 = 24 Kw 24 Kw x .25/Kw = \$6.00 day
Note: all figures shown above were randomly generated in my head, and have no correlation to your calculations. Hope this helps.

### How many tons is my unit?

divide your btu rating by 12000. (1 ton = 12000 btu)
For example - a 24,000 BTU Air Conditioner is a 2 ton unit. 24000 divided by 12000 = 2
A 18000 btu air condtioner is a 1 1/2 ton unit 18000 divided by 12000 = 1 1/2
you can find out your btu rating by looking on the tag on your unit.

### Hi, I am going to purchase a 12000 btu 1.5Hp portable aircondioner unit for my living room of around 42 m^2 (7 metres wide and 6 metres in length). I am wondering if this unit is suitable for the room?...

Hello =D
12000 BTU will cool approximately 450 to 550 square feet. That's around 137 to 167 m/2.

Unless your name is Beelzebub and the room your trying to cool is really really really really south (or in this case down). =D <that's not two horns is it? ";-} That should be more then enough to keep everything cool.

Good luck and I hope this helps.
