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

Well, this is a very general question that people come across while purchasing an air conditioner. Since it is a fact that air conditioners increase your monthly bills. It is very important to consider the capacity of the air conditioner which you are willing to buy. Hence here in this article, we will be discussing the power consumption of 1-ton air conditioner for 1 hour?

Before buying an air conditioner there are certain factors to consider while purchasing an air conditioner. Even power consumption is also key essential elements that affect the purchasing of an air conditioner. Now even power consumption of an AC depends upon the capacity of the air conditioner. So higher will be the capacity of the AC higher will it be its power consumption and vice versa. Furthermore, one more factor which determines the power consumption of an air conditioner depends upon the AC model, manufacturer, star rating of the AC, etc.

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

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

Let us assume that in 1 hour the power consumed is X kWH.

where X is a kW rating given to the AC.

Now let us again assume that for a 1-ton air conditioner the kW rating is nearly 1 kW which depends upon the AC model, manufacturer, star rating of the AC, etc. Usually, it is seen that for 1 ton of air conditioner the normal ratings given around 1.05 kW. The actual power consumption that will be consumed by Air Conditioner will be completely based on the capacity of the AC. So if the room is hot then in 1 hour 1 ton of AC 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 you can see that the power consumption for 1 hour will be equal to 1 kWh which is **1 Unit**.

Hence power consumption of 1 ton of AC in 1 Hour will be 1 UNIT of electric power.
