Wiring standard for Split AC 1.5 Ton

Hi,

In my house ...Iam using samsung split AC..1.5 Tons ..which normally takes ..6 to 7 amps of current...(1.6KW) If I see my house electrical system ..Iam having 16Amps Socket and wiring is 320 gauge ...

my ac mechanic was telling I need to replace with 720 gauge wiring ... my question is is it really required change to 720.

If I continue to use 320 gauge ..is there any risk ...involved.

Thanks
Ganesh

Hi,
The factor that you have not included here is the distance from the power panel to the unit...if it is too far then you need to up gauge the wire to compensate for that... that could be why the electrician wanted to go to the 720 ga. wire.

Explain the difference between static electricity and current electricity


Static electricity...

Generally considered a nuisance... can cause serious damage to electronic equipment... (it is STORED power)

Thunder & lightening are STATIC electricity...

Wiki definition included (below)

For commercially available ELECTRICITY...
(usa) "currents" ... All electricity functions because of a DIFFERENCE in potential. When you start adding wires then you are harnessing that potential DIFFERENCE into usable energy.

Direct current & Alternating current... Generally referred to as "AC" & "DC"

Most all of the power grid you are looking at on power poles around your community... have "AC" flowing on the power wires
good for powering residential housing and commercial power applications

Immediately below those wires ... The phone wires
have to run about 10 feet below the "AC" wires...
Phone systems run on "DC" because it is quiet
(communications systems).

Alternating CURRENT can be rectified into Direct...
and Direct CURRENT can be inverted into Alternating.

Generators,
solar panels & BATTERIES output DC
Which can be accumulated and stored.

Alternators
output AC... and because AC is less susceptible to magnetic interference... it can travel great distances with very little loss.

Very interesting topic for further research ... and the principals of both... as argued by no less than Nicola Tesla & Thomas Edison.

Hope this helps

What is the tonnage of a carrier furnace model number 58gp100-2


It can handle five tons, or a 60000 btu ac. Tonnage is a measurment for the ac, 1 ton-12000 btus. The ac dose the cooling. the furnace simply blows the air, so if its a good furnace, and sized right, no need to replace it. Simply add the split system to the existing furnace. If you want the tonnage of the ac size, let me know your homes squarefootage, age, condition. Do NOT include the basement in the sq. ft.

I JUST NEED TO KNOW WHAT MY TONNAGE IS.


Look for your model number on your condensor, outdoor unit. Your tonnage will be towards the end of it and divisable by 6. I.E. 36=3tons or 42=3.5tons. Ac units are messured by the half ton. If you have a split system I.E. heater inside and ac outside your system will be 1 - 5 tons. If this doesn't help post your model and serial number. I can then give you tonnage, age, so forth.

We have an older model Lennox ac model #HS26-461-P and we are trying to find out what the tonnage is. Can you tell me where to look or if you know what it is will you please tell me?


The answer that (TheMobilian) left couldn't be further from the truth, of offense. So you're saying if you have a 1000 sq ft house with 4 bedrooms you'd have 4.5 tons of cooling? That's insane, the compressor in that system would be shot in about 6 months from short cycling. Their are many factors in sizing equipment, but none of them involve how many bedrooms you have. If you don't know how to calculate load from windows and insulation factor, then you can use the old (1 ton per 500-550 sq ft) that will get you close.

Samsung 1.5 ton slpit AC.the out door unit is very noisy


Check to see if the noise is coming from the fan, could be bad bearings. Replace the fan motor if that is the case. If the noise is coming from the compressor, the only other place besides the fan, then your compressor has some issues and will probably stop working soon, maybe line up for a replacement before you are left with a hot house.
