    Need help figuring out how much kwh my air conditioner uses
    Hi names gavin. I have to calculate how much energy in kwh my air conditioner is using. I have been using energy reading plugs to read everything else in the office but light bulbs and air conditioners are the last. I have a grip on the lightbulbs but the ac is holding my work back.

    Indoor unit
    Cooling capacity 2.5 kw
    Heating capacity 3.2 kw

    Outdoor unit
    Power supply 230v, 1PH, 50hz
    Power input heating/cooling 0.78/0.6 kw
    Running amps heating/cooling 3.9/3.2 A

    This seems like all the info that is relevant to what I need.

    I have no experience in any of this but I know how to do basic math and the plugs were making it easy for me up until now. Help would be greatly appreciated they are mostly in cooling mode through the year cause its for keeping product cool. I have 3 more to do all with different numbers so if sum1 can help with maybe showing a solution it would be massive help. Thanks

    What's your question? You have the power figures for both heating and cooling in kilowatts - just multiply by the number of hours that heating or cooling is running to get energy usage in kilowatt-hours.
