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.

What to do with carrier infinity ac fault code 81


"Low capacity thermal lockout"#81. What this tells me is your 1st stage cooling(low capacity) is locked out for 4 he's due to a dirty outdoor coil, weak outdoor fan motor run capacitor, slow outdoor fan motor, overcharged with freon, restricted or short cycling outdoor airflow(overheating), damaged discharge temp switch, faulty outdoor circuit board. That's all the scenarios I can think of for now. Hope this helps!

What is the rule of thumb for computing the capacity of horsepower of air conditioner in terms of area, e.g. square meters


Horsepower does not necessarily matter. Horsepower is not computed to capacity. Amounts of btu/ heat removal, is measured capacity. 12,000btus which equals 1 ton of cooling will cool a maximum of 500 sqft depending on the heat load. Obviously a brand new home with updated insulation vs a closed in lanai with a wall of windows...you get the idea

Blows very cold air during dehumidify mode.


se this fact: God bless you
air conditioning system cools but does not dehumidify the room. The most common cause of inadequate dehumidification by an air conditioning system is the installation of a cooling unit which has too much capacity, or is "over-sized" for the space it is being used to cool. What happens is simple:

If an air conditioning compressor unit is oversized (too many BTUH of cooling capacity) what happens is it cools the room so quickly that the system does not move enough total volume of air across the cooling coil to remove much moisture before the room temperature has dropped to the A/C cut-off point.

In other words, an air conditioner needs to run longer, and move more total volume of air through itself to drop room humidity than it does to just cool the air. So "bigger" cooling capacity or higher BTU capacity for an air conditioning system is not necessarily better, and it can actually be a problem.

I need to know the heating and cooling capacity.


Please write clearly what you need? Cooling capacity is BTU and heating in WATTS.

My model is AEV05KB and recently I see water on the cooling pipes sometimes it drips and sometimes it forms snowlike formations and also if I put the cover on the snow completely coveres the parts inside...


It sounds like the unit is too small for the area being cooled. You should figure the square footage of the area and use this th figure what you need.

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Using the square footage and the chart below, determine the correct cooling capacity. Cooling capacity is measured in British thermal units (BTUs) per hour.Area To Be Cooled (square feet) Capacity Needed (BTUs per hour)
100 up to 150 5,000
150 up to 250 6,000
250 up to 300 7,000
300 up to 350 8,000
350 up to 400 9,000
400 up to 450 10,000
450 up to 550 12,000
550 up to 700 14,000
700 up to 1,000 18,000
1,000 up to 1,200 21,000
1,200 up to 1,400 23,000
1,400 up to 1,500 24,000
1,500 up to 2,000 30,000
2,000 up to 2,500 34,000


Make any adjustments for the following circumstances:
If the room is heavily shaded, reduce capacity by 10 percent.
If the room is very sunny, increase capacity by 10 percent.
If more than two people regularly occupy the room, add 600 BTUs for each additional person.
If the unit is used in a kitchen, increase capacity by 4,000 BTUs.
Consider where you install the unit. If you are mounting an air conditioner near the corner of a room, look for a unit that can send the airflow in the right direction.

What is the proper way to drain the cooling system and what is the cooling system capacity of a 2004 VW Jetta TDI?


The capacity is 2- 2.5 gallons of coolant.
I would drain the cooling system from the radiator drain plug.

I would follow the owners manual for the instruction and fluid levels.
