# How much power is consumed by an AC of 1.5-ton capacity in an hour?

Air Conditioner usage means high energy consumption and high electricity bills. This is a really worrying thought in every Indian household when it comes to using air conditioners or while purchasing them.

Before buying an air conditioner, there are certain factors to consider while purchasing an air conditioner. Power consumption is a key essential element that affects the purchasing of an air conditioner. The power consumption of an AC depends upon the capacity of the air conditioner. Therefore, the higher will be the capacity of the AC higher will it be its power consumption and vice versa. Furthermore, the power consumption of an air conditioner also depends upon the AC model, manufacturer, star rating of the AC, and more. Recently, we have also observed in our country that the best air conditioners from top brands like Carrier, Voltas, LG are really focused on making their AC units energy efficient.

It is a fact that air conditioners increase your monthly bills. Therefore, it is very important to consider the power consumption of the air conditioner before making a purchase. Hence, in this article, we will be calculating the power consumption of a 1.5-ton air conditioner for 1-hour usage.

## Q. What is Power Consumption of 1.5 ton Air Conditioner for 1 Hour?

Answer: To calculate the power consumption of 1.5 ton Air Conditioner for 1 hour, you have to solve a simple mathematical equation.

Let us assume that in 1 hour the power consumed by an AC is X kWH, where X is a kW rating given to the AC.

Now, you must know that for a 1-ton air conditioner the kW rating is nearly 1.5 kW. However, it is dependent upon the AC model, manufacturer, star rating of the AC, etc. Therefore, the actual power consumption that will be consumed by the air conditioner will be completely based on the capacity of the AC. So, if the room is hot then in 1 hour AC of 1.5-ton capacity will draw almost its rated power. But if the room is cool then the power consumption will automatically reduce since the system will automatically cut off the compressor.

So now if we calculate based on the above assumptions, then we get:

the power consumption of 1 ton AC for 1 hour = 1.5 kWh, therefore for 1.5 ton AC for 1 hour = 1.5*1.5 = 2.25 kWh which is **2.25 Units**.

Hence, we can conclude that **power consumption of 1.5 ton AC for 1 Hour usage will be 2.25 units of electricity**.
