What are BTU’s
If you are researching new air conditioners, you probably have seen or heard the words “tonnage” or “BTU” many times. They relate to the cooling capacity of the air conditioner. BTU is an acronym for British Thermal unit. It is a measurement of the amount of heat that can be removed from a room per hour.. The size of an air conditioning system is usually referred to as “tonnage.” A 2 ton or 3 ton air conditioning system is a common residential system size. Each ton is equal to 12,000 BTUs. The higher the BTU or tonnage, the more cooling capacity of the air conditioner.
