What do you mean by Ton

Last Update Date : Mar 27. 2018



General idea :


● It is a well known fact that the water in liquid state contains more heat than Ice in its solid state.


● Therefore, In simple terms, a "Ton" can be defined as the amount of heat that has to be removed from 1 ton of  water in its liquid state  to convert it  into ice  at a particular temperature in time period of 24 hours.


● In short , greater the tonnage capacity of the air conditioner, the sooner the room will get cooler. An air conditioner with tonnage capacity of 2 ton will take half the time taken by an air-conditioner with tonnage capacity of 1 ton to cool the same room to a particular temperature.


Scientific definition:  img28.gif


● One Ton of air conditioning is equivalent to 12000 BTU/Hr. A BTU is the short form of  British thermal unit.


How should you select the proper tonnage capacity of the air conditioner for your Home :


● The tonnage capacity of your AC should depend on the size of your home. Greater the size of your home , greater should be the tonnage capacity of the air conditioner.


● If the numbers of rooms that has to be covered by a single AC is more , then it is recommended to have an AC of higher tonnage capacity.
