How much does an air conditioner consume per hour? And in a month?

How much does an air conditioner consume per hour? And in a month?

The consumption of an air conditioner depends on various factors, such as the power of the unit, its usage, ambient temperature, and energy efficiency level. However, for a general idea, we can make some estimated calculations.

On average, a domestic air conditioner with 2,500 BTUs (equivalent to 2.6 kilowatts of power) can consume around 1 kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity per hour of operation. This means that if used for 8 hours a day, the consumption would be 8 kWh daily, which is approximately 240 kWh per month.

It is important to note that these are only estimated calculations, and actual consumption may vary depending on the usage conditions and energy efficiency of the unit. It is also important to consider the cost of electricity in your area and analyze energy costs before purchasing and using an air conditioner regularly.
