Thank you Jerry and Bill for taking the time to look into
this problem of mine more deeply.
Unfortuantely, even as I read through your thoughtful
replies, the problem is not resolved. A BTU/hr. is a unit
of Power, as are HP and Tons Refrigeration. And with
airconditoners, the rated BTU/hr of cooling capacity is
much *greater* than the rated BTU/hr of energy input. You
can leave HP out of it and just use the watts rating for
energy input and the BTU/hr rating for cooling capacity.
For example a 610 watt air conditioner is rated for 6000
BTU/hr cooling capacity. 610 watts=2077 BTU/hr yields 6000
BTU/hr cooling capacity. Does this not seem odd?
There is something I am obviously missing here, but I'll be
darned if I can figure it out, so far. I'm checking this
further. I'll let you know what I find out.
Do you Yahoo!?
