There is a data plate, some are metal others are plastic like a decal. Look in a place where it would not get scratched off like behind the air filter when you take the front panel off.

Can a Fujitsu compressor unit be connected to multiple inside evaporator units that have different tonnage ratings. 18,000 BTU compressor and 9,000 & 12,000 BTU evaporator units inside.


call fujitsu engineering division direct and ask them about what is connected and if it works ok
logically as each evaporator has it's own tx valve as long as the compressor is large enough to run all together it should work but get the right information from the fujitsu experts

What is the BTU of modelM6FQ10F2A


the btu rating will be on the same plate as the model number
if there is no btu rating but a kw rating then there are conversion tables to work it out
for example a 2kw unit is close to 9000 btu and a 8kw unit is around 32000btu

I have a contractor that wants to install a 36000btu outdoor unit(model # mh080fxca4a) and two indoor 18000btu indoor units(model #mh052fnca). What would be the output of the outdoor unit? The contractor...


Yes it rated for a maximum out put of 36,000 btu (3 ton) with the right indoor fan coil units which based on the model numbers should give the 36,000 btu's combined when both fan coil units are on, otherwise 18,000 btu's (1.5 ton)per fan coil.

I have an oddball question. What does a 3-ton A/C unit weigh? I know its not 3 tons.


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.

How do I find out how many "tons" my Carrier AC units are?


Hi,
Look in the model number for numbers like 24, 30, 48, or 60....
They represent the BTU's in thousands of the unit....
The BTU's are 12,000 per ton...
in other words a 24000 BTU unit will be a 2 ton unit

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.

This is a large unit going by the model number.12,000 BTU's per ton. It would be a 5 ton unit, or 60,000 BTU's.

WHAT DOES 12000BTUh MEAN OR REPRESENT IN AIRCONDIONING terMS? eg 12000 or 10000


Hi,
I found this explanation which I certainly couldn't improve on.

The British thermal unit (BTU or Btu) is a traditional unit of energy. It is approximately the amount of energy needed to heat one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit. One Btu is equal to about 1.06 kilojoules. It is used in the power, steam generation, heating and air conditioning industries. In scientific contexts the BTU has largely been replaced by the SI unit of energy, the joule (J), though it may be used as a measure of agricultural energy production (BTU/kg). It is still used 'unofficially' in metric English-speaking countries (such as Canada, the United Kingdom), and remains the standard unit of classification for air conditioning units manufactured and sold in many non-English-speaking metric countries.
In North America, the term "BTU" is used to describe the heat value (energy content) of fuels, and also to describe the power of heating and cooling systems, such as furnaces, stoves, barbecue grills, and air conditioners. When used as a unit of power, BTU 'per hour' (BTU/h) is understood, though this is often abbreviated to just "BTU".

I located it at this site all credit for this info is:

Just put in a new ac unit and replaced a old one. old unit was 18000 btu and the new one is on 12,000 btu I used the same power outlet but the new ac unit starts up but then shuts down and seems like it is...


The 18,000 btu A/C is 230 volts, are you sure the 12,000 btu unit is 230 volts most are 120 volts.
Usually 12,000 btu is the biggest 120 volt A/C you can buy.
